Thursday, July 10, 2008 In an interview with the Washington Times today, former senator Phil Gramm, who is Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) "econ brain,"- blamed the state of the economy on "the conviction of many Americans that economic conditions are the worst in two or three decades."- "You've heard of mental depression; this is a mental recession,"- said Gramm.

Gramm decried the "constant whining"- of the American people when it comes to the economy because he believes "we've never been more dominant"-:

"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.

"We've never been more dominant; we've never had more natural advantages than we have today,"- he said. "We have benefited greatly"- from the globalization of the economy in the last 30 years.

Just a fellow news researcher. I often find it hard not to be buried in the spin. So I figured I would share some articles that wont receive any attention.
