A Refreshing Perspective - Tony Blair Is Bullish On America

My friend, Tom Glass, forwards interesting material to his friends on a daily basis. Many times, the e-mails contain jokes, amusing stories, quips, cartoons and other fodder to lighten the day. Today's message was of a more serious turn, and one that I found well worth sharing with my readers. My research indicates that this statement was made over a year ago as Blair responded to critics in the House of Commons who questioned his continuing support of American policies. You may already be familiar with his powerful and succinct retort, but I became aware of this quotation just today.

During a interview, Prime Minister Tony Blair of Great Britain was quoted giving the following answer to one of his parliament members as to why he believes so much in America and its President. And does he think they are on the right track?

Blair's reply -- "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at.....how many want in.......and how many want out."
