Mc Cain's economic policies

I have read an interesting article on the subject in Fortune magazine.

Many political commentators chose the remarks of his chief strategist Charlie Black who connected the issue of national security to the success of the candidate. An rightly so. Although judging political events, even tragic, from the point of view of their political fortunes is customary to politicians, this one went a bit too far, especially having been made in public. 

And what did Charlie Black say? "The assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December was an "unfortunate event," says Black. "But his knowledge and ability to talk about it reemphasized that this is the guy who's ready to be Commander-in-Chief. And it helped us." As would, Black concedes with startling candor after we raise the issue, another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. "Certainly it would be a big advantage to him," says Black.

But this is not just the opinion of his adviser. Mc Cain himself,  in reply to the first question of the interview "Senator, what do you see as the gravest long-term threat to the U.S. economy?",  at first says nothing. .. Nine seconds of silence, ten seconds, 11. Finally he says, "Well, I would think that the absolute gravest threat is the struggle that we're in against radical Islamic extremism, which can affect, if they prevail, our very existence. Another successful attack on the United States of America could have devastating consequences."

Will the American people support this approach? We will now in November.
