McCain Campaign: America a 'Nation of Whiners' in a 'Mental Recession'

Posted by Frankie at 7/10/2008 12:57:00 PM

The patriotic John McCain campaign called the American people, "a nation of whiners." He also insulted Americans by equating them to have "mental depression."

From the Huffington Post:

In an interview with the Washington Times, McCain's top economic adviser Phil Gramm tells America to suck it up and stop complaining about the economy:

"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.
