GOOD BOY, GORDO:

President pours praise on Brown (Patrick Wintour and Richard Norton-Taylor, 6/17/08, The Guardian)

Bush said he appreciated the prime minister being "tough on terror", saying that Brown understood that the spread of freedom was transformative, and it was wrong to think that "only white guy Methodists" wanted self-government. He branded such thinking as the ultimate form of political elitism.

Brown's announcements yesterday on Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq underscored the extent to which Britain is determined to stay in step with Washington in the battle against terrorism, and that he is continuing to cooperate with the US despite talk early in his prime ministership of a more distant relationship.


Well, he was easily brought to heel.
