COLUMBIA, S.C. — White House hopeful Mitt Romney is criticizing President Barack Obama for saying the United States had grown "a little bit lazy" in trying to attract business to the U.S.
The Republican presidential candidate spoke Tuesday at a sign-making factory in Columbia, S.C.
Obama made the comments over the weekend to a group of chief executives gathered for a regional economic summit in Hawaii.
Romney has been emphasizing the economy and jobs as he tries to boost his presidential campaign. He's been in something of a rut, sharing front-runner status for months with Republicans Herman Cain and Rick Perry.
