6. Bush would have been in hiding
I thought Blair was genuine and said about all he could say. At least he did not say "They hate our freedom".

11. Yeah, I did notice that Blair was actually HEADING to London.
You know, instead of flying all over Great Britian and hiding in bunkers after having read "My Pet Goat" to a group of children.

4. "Determined to defend our values"
He also said, that we are "determined to defend our values". So, I assume you won't be using this as an excuse to force through the ID card bill?

9. At least Blair can speak without taking a half hour
to prepare a statement.

He looked and acted like a normal human being. The contrast between his reaction and Bu$h on 9-11 is significant.

12. End poverty? How about working to end terrorism?
Or does that impoverish the wrong people?

14. Give me a break
Even if tehy find some way to end poverty in Africa(like that's going to happen). What about poverty in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia?

Tony Blair is an idiot. You're not going to "end" poverty. You can do something though...but I doubt you'll get much done because you're an idiot Tony. The truth hurts.
