He said: “The question is whether this is a man who has what it takes to protect America from Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida and the other great threats in the world. He has given no reason to answer in the affirmative.”

McCain said the campaign’s focus has understandably been shifted from national security to economics, but warned that doesn’t mean dangers from abroad have passed.

McCain argued that the economic meltdown, while serious, is temporary.
