WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Republican Sen. Phil Gramm said Friday he is stepping down as co-chairman of Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign after comments in which he called Americans "a nation of whiners."
MUCH TOO LATE!!!
THIS REPUBLICAN "WHINER" WILL NOT BE VOTING FOR MCCAIN!
But he will continue working behind the scenes to formulate McBush's economic policies...:(
He was talking about Obama!!
Old turtle-head Gramm will be behind the screen, pulling the strings for McCain, just like always.
Wow! Phil Gramm I wonder if he is whining now?
McCain can't keep any part of his campaign together.
Another McCain shake up, soon he won't have any supporter, or friends of the campaign.
One bad egg is gone. One more is left to go. Now it is time for Senator McCain to push Charlie Black out of the nest. Charlie Black is evil! Next!
Doesn't that make him a quitter?
Is O.K guys, you can speak to how you feel. I don't care anymore...
HMMMM the late Friday, hope no one notices anouncement...so last year
As he should...what a disgrace.
"Stepping Down" .. hmm .. nice use of words
I agree with him on that!
As a loyal Chicago resident, I can't help but wonder why no one discusses that our fair Senator has let taxes hike to 10.25%. If he lets that happen in his own community, I'm scared of what he will do with an entire country.
At this point, it doesn't matter! McCain will lose anyway.
OBAMA '08 / '12
PHIL GRAMM is stepping down after calling AMERICANS A nation of
WHINERS.......He should take McCAIN with him. McCain is DISGRACE TO his PARTY !!!
Now, if we could McWar to step down also!!!!!
Too late! The Republicans have proven they're the "let them eat cake." party over the last eight years. Gramm just forgot and said it out loud. Good riddance to all the ones we can vote out in November!
It is disappointing to hear a surrogate make such negative, ignorant stereotypes of the American people. I'm glad he's gone. At least candidate McCain didn't do like Obama himself did and call the American people bitter, clingy and having antipathy towards those that don't look like them (racist.) At least candidate McCain's wife didn't do like Obama's wife and call the American people sloths, cynics and mean.
He should have stepped down the minute this came out not days later.
I certainly don't support McCain, but this is too bad: we are a nation of whinners. We whine when we have to pay for gas; we whine when we have to pay $5/gal for milk; we whine when our cities as us to recycle; we whine when we're asked not to be lazy and help our nation's poor. We only care about ourselves, and the world is much too big for such a kindergarten world view.
Phil Gramm is a disgrace to Goobers and Inbred’s every where
Good riddance! Now who's whining?! LoL... But honestly, McCain's campaign is slowly falling apart at the seams. Soon his "campaign staff" will consist of him, Cindy, and Mitt sitting in a room scratching their heads.
It's so sad that a man can't speak his mind, make a comment, in this ridiculously political correct society of ours wihout having to step down from a political position.
