What a Shock? Phil Gramm Has Been Ousted

I didn't blog or even talk to family or friends about Phil Gramm's infamous comment on the U.S. as being a "nation of whiners" because his statement was nothing, nothing of value, substance, or facts. His comments were editorial fluff to me.

To Senator John McCain's former campaign co-chair and economic advisor: Phil Gramm, go to organizations like the Metropolitan Ministries or Salvation Army here in Tampa, FL and ask them, "Are more people coming to use your services?", but I'm sure that you avoid places that give handouts. Americans who need real assistance during these economic duldrums are nothing more than whiners to you?

Well, I wonder why your former boss dropped you? Maybe because there's too much whining in the GOP right now about your idiotic comments. Wake up and look outside of your window! Better yet, visit New Orleans, any inner city, or any suburb in the US right now and tell me if you don't see a "for sale" sign or families sharing a home that once housed one family! Actually, I want you to take a look at , and you let me know what you see. You can actually write me and personally tell me that millions of FELLOW CITIZENS are whining in this suffering nation.

I, like any other intelligent citizen, see through your mind games, and the mental oppression you're trying to usher into the White House will be met with mental clarity if other voters see what you and the GOP represent, Phil Gramm. How dare you insult this country and people who probably voted for you in the past! I hope their minds haven't bottomed out as you have suggested, and I hope they vote for the Democratic ticket in November 2008. We will see who will be whining when mentally "retarded" donkeys stroll onto the greens of the White House in January 2009! You love big business, commenting on whining when you were part of scandalous Eron, and your "friends" are basically crooks, like Ivan Boesky and Jerry Stiles.

Keep calling Americans whiners, and we'll keep adding on to a long list of why your cohorts shouldn't be in Washington, D.C. I speak not only for myself but also for many Americans when I say that you have been tuned out and only the real issues will be acknowledged now.
