Phil Gramm Says McCain Supporters Aren't `Whiners'Two things immediately spring to mind:
Phil Gramm excluded John McCain supporters from his description of Americans as ``a nation of whiners,'' the characterization that forced his exit from the Republican presidential candidate's campaign in July.
``If you're sitting here today, you're not economically illiterate and you're not a whiner, so I'm not worried about who you're going to vote for,'' the former Texas senator told attendees at a Financial Services Roundtable event in Minneapolis on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention.
Many of those who attended the event came from the financial community, including representatives of Minneapolis-based U.S. Bancorp and the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America.
1) So anyone who doesn't support McCain is a 'whiner.'
Yeah, all those bank failures, our jobs being sent overseas, our homes being foreclosed, $40k buys less than $30k did 7 years ago, the fact that when oilyman Bush came in office gas was $1.34 and now it's $3.97 is just because we're whiners. (OK, I'm done 'whining' now.)
2) John McCain said
At today's event, Gramm also defended McCain's selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his vice presidential running mate.So Phil Gramm doesn't speak for McCain, he was fired from McCain's campaign, but he was involved in the vetting process of McCain's VP candidate!?
``We went through a process of vetting all possible candidates,'' narrowing it down to three before choosing Palin, he said.
Heckuva job Phil!
