Last week John McCain repeated "the fundmentals of our economy are strong." Just last month he stated he would deregulate the health-care industry. A president of the United States can't suspend his presidency to deal with a crisis, and we cannot afford four more years of the same failed policies. Is McCain really this far out of touch with the American people, or is it just another stunt?

John McCain is a risk American families cannot afford.
