It's the Economy Stupid (and your old worn out policies)

As the American economy continues to unravel, the Republican candidate for president wants voters to believe that the policies of his party and the Bush administration have nothing to do with the current crisis. I was feeling a real disconnect watching the McCain television ads. My feelings were confirmed when I read the September 17th New York Times by Kitty Bennett, Michael Luo, Adam Nagourney and Jeff Zeleny.
According the article, McCain’s record on this topic, “… and the views of those he has always cited as his most influential advisers, suggest that he has never departed in any major way from his party’s embrace of deregulation and relying more on market forces than on the government to exert discipline.”
