In an interview this evening with a local NBC affiliate in Orlando, President Obama claimed that America has "gotten a little soft."

"I mean, there are a lot of things we can do," Obama said. "The way I think about it is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and, you know, we didn't have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track."
