    .....well then! Whaddya think of Gordo Huh!

    Man of the people or just another Brit selling sound bites and empty statements that stroke the egos of them on high.

    Maybe a man of insightful perspective with a firm message to share in this time of global economic crisis?

    your views would be interesting...........

    I actually went to this event.

    I thought his speech was decent, but it seemed to be calling for a lot more government intervention, which I did not like.

    I also found his point on education abroad to prevent terrorism somewhat misplaced. If you look at terrorist leadership, many are college educated and have studied in the US. I do not really see major funding for education abroad as preventing terrorism.

    What is your take on if he makes it or not? Conservatives making a comeback?

    Rob I think the man is a total fraud. Him and Blair have driven our Country into being creature of the European Union and further he is selling a message to the US Congress that has been ratified by the European Union to serve their interests not yours. The best thing the US people can do is demand his immediate extradition from US........... ship him out forthwith!



    ............but please don't let this taint your views!!??

    You guys might have been a little better off if you hadn't handed out so many UK passports to the folks in places that you colonized. Bad for business you know, old chap...

    Everybody wants to blame their leaders for their collective problems. Problems often have a far more complicated genesis.

    I did not like him at all. At least Tony Blair gave a good speech.

    Do we have to call Ted Kennedy a special name now ?
