Video: Barack Obama: McCain's Trying to Be Dr. Phil

You'll want to go about 7 minutes in for the good stuff.

From First Read:

At a town hall focused on economic security for women, the Illinois senator said McCain’s record on the economic issues that matter most to women showed he would not bring change, in part because he believed the Bush administration’s economic record had meant “great progress” for the economy.

Obama went on to criticize former Sen. Phil Gramm for saying the country was merely in a "mental recession."

"He didn’t say this, but I guess what he meant was that it's a figment of your imagination -- these high gas prices," Obama said to laughter and jeers from the crowd. "This comes after Sen. McCain recently admitted that his energy proposals for the gas tax holiday and the drilling will have mainly quote psychological benefits."
Obama goes on to say: "America already has one Dr. Phil. We don't need another one. When it comes to the economy we need somebody to actually solve the economy. It's not just a figment of your imagination. It's not all in your head."
