Lying Hypocrites to the Right.

In an interview with the Washington Times, McCain's TOP ECONOMIC ADVISER Phil Gramm bashes America, calling America a "nation of whiners."
How dare Phil Gramm slander America! How dare Phil Gramm say that we are just a bunch of little babies! Why does Phil Gramm HATE America so much?

"You've heard of mental depression; this is a mental recession," he said, noting that growth has held up at about 1 percent despite all the publicity over losing jobs to India, China, illegal immigration, housing and credit problems and record oil prices. "We may have a recession; we haven't had one yet."

"We have sort of become a nation of whiners," he said. "You just hear this constant whining, complaining about a loss of competitiveness, America in decline" despite a major export boom that is the primary reason that growth continues in the economy, he said.

McCain's campaign responded:
"Phil Gramm's comments are not representative of John McCain's views."

What? How can Gramm be McCain's TOP ECONOMIC ADVISER but "Phil Gramm's comments are not representative of John McCain's views."

I smell a lie and a hypocrite. Why is it when Wesley Clark makes a comment, it is "OOOO, Obama is attacking McCain's war record!" But when McCain's TOP ECONOMIC ADVISER speaks in an interview for a major newspaper, "Phil Gramm's comments are not representative of John McCain's views." BULLSHIT.

p.s. See my previous post aboout the Enron Loophole:

Phil Graham's Enron loophole put limits on the ability of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to prevent speculative trading in energy and commodity markets. Ine the time since Graham created the Enron loophole in 2000 the price of oil has risen by nearly 500 percent.
