Watch McCain's comments on Gramm.
(CNN) – Just how much distance does presumptive Republican nominee John McCain want to put between himself and the unfortunate headlines surrounding top economic adviser Phil Gramm?
Apparently, at least an ocean’s worth.
Campaigning in Michigan, McCain was asked just how big a role Gramm had played in the formulation of his economic plan – and just how much influence the former Texas senator would have if Republicans held on to the White House. “Is there any chance he would be your Treasury secretary, or play a significant economic policy making role in a McCain administration?” asked one reporter.
The Arizona senator replied that Gramm’s influence might be limited to a corner of Eastern Europe.
“I think Senator Gramm would be in serious consideration for ambassador to Belarus,” joked McCain, “although I’m not sure the citizens of Minsk would welcome that.”
The distance between Livonia, Michigan and Minsk is around 5,000 miles.
McCain's poor judgment is linked to poor judgment.
Gramm was his top economic adviser?! Wow. No wonder he knows so little about the economy. That explains a lot.
You can be old and have a lot of experience and still be clueless enough to look for advice from someone who is clueless.
OH YEA, LET ME SEE NOW. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO
FIND OUT WHO GRAMM WORKS FORE. IT'S NOT ME.
### O YEA HE IN FACT HE IS THE MCBUSH ECONOMIC ADVISER ##
Birds of a feather "advise" together. True colors come shining through.
Ha Ha ha. Now we know that all the presidential nominees throw their friends under the bus. But why did you use these fools to begin with. Think, people, if both McCain and Nobama need to throw their aides under the bus, doesn't that make them the idiots who picked these aides in the first place? Or is this like a card game? whoever threw less people under the bus is the winner?
30mins on Jesses Jackson and 2mins on Phil Gramm...What happen too CNN fair and un-bias I don't thinh so anymore
Did he laugh at his own joke? I find that really, really creepy. Anyone else? He.... he, he. Kind of like one of those weird pale lizards you see under rocks.
Please–he should be sent to prison for being an idiot
McCain the warmonger, who voted against the GI bill. !!
He is not a Vet, he is a traitor of the Vets.
Maybe John McCain and Phil Gramm can open a small business together after they lose the election. They can call it WEINERS FOR WHINERS! Obviously McCain will be the president.
It's amazing as you scroll down the ticker how CNN is hyping this up to make it look so much bigger than it is. Almost every posting on the ticker has a negative McCain slant and a positive Obama slant. It was the same in the primary except for Hillary was the one being bashed. I see that CNN has not gotten off the Obama bandwagon one bit. For that reason and a whole host of others, this Hillary supporter will be voting for John McCain
BARACK THE VOTE
MCSHAME IS TOAST !!
