McCain breaks with economic adviser over *whiners* remark

July 11th, 2008 . by TexasFred

WASHINGTON — Republican John McCain rebuked his friend and adviser Phil Gramm on Thursday for saying the U.S. has become a “nation of whiners� about the economy and that the nation is in a “mental recession.�

“Phil Gramm does not speak for me,� the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said. “I speak for me.�

Gramm, a former Texas senator and economics professor, told The Washington Times that “we have sort of become a nation of whiners. You just hear this constant whining, complaining about a loss of competitiveness.�

He went on to say the U.S. is not in a recession, which is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth, but many people seem to think so. “You’ve heard of mental depression; this is a mental recession.�

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama jumped on Gramm’s comments. “America already has one Dr. Phil,� Obama said in Virginia, referring to TV personality Phil McGraw. “When it comes to the economy, we don’t need another.�

McCain breaks with economic adviser over *whiners* remark

In 1776 our forefathers put their lives and fortunes on the line when they signed the Declaration of Independence. They didn’t settle for 2nd best. They didn’t choose the lesser of 2 evils. They chose freedom and they staked their lives and liberty on that great act of revolution. They were true men of substance and courage.

It’s a crying shame that we don’t still have a majority of real patriots in America, individuals that fit the mold of a patriot, the men that made this nation great.

Sen. Gramm is only speaking the obvious. McCain can’t accept that, neither can Obama, and that’s because it goes against everything that both of these politicians stand for. McCain and Obama are as near to being the same politically as people can be, there is not more than 2 degrees of separation in their political viewpoint.

We have had Dem and Dem Lite forced upon us, and it’s time for American Conservatives to wake up and FIGHT. It’s time to take this nation back. It’s time to wrest this nation from the hands of the 2 most destructive forces in American politics, the DNC and the RNC.

Are there any real PATRIOTS left in this nation? Or have the vast majority become nothing more than a bunch of simpering, apathetic appeasers?

There is still an opportunity to save this nation, but it’s going to take more than a handful of real PATRIOTS, it’s going to take the commitment of REAL Conservatives, and we must totally denounce BOTH candidates and organize the biggest, and most effective write-in campaign in American history.
