Quit whining, losers

Yeah, I mean you. And me. And just about everyone I know. That's the message that Phil Gramm, John McCain's economic advisor has for all of us:
"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.

That's some straight talk, all right. McCain's economic policy in a nutshell- STFU and get back to work. My yacht needs a new GPS.
