Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere and Jeffy Fisher discuss the rankings Tuesday of U.S. News' 2017 Best Countries of the World. The rankings were based on categories such as adventure, citizenship, cultural influence, entrepreneurship, heritage, movers, open for business, power and quality of life.

"None of those the United States should rank anything above 25 or 30. Not one of those," Jeffy says.

No. 2 is Canada, which Pat says is why everyone is flocking across the border "because it's the second greatest place in the world to live. That's why 35 million people live in a country that's like 20 times the size of ours."

The United States fell from No. 4 last year to No. 7 in 2017. One of the sticking points categorically that puzzled the panel was cultural influence.

"They ranked us third. How do you rank the United States of America third in influence? Who's more influential than we are? ... Every country in the world has been Americanized," Pat says.
