Barack, Michelle, Biden All to Skip Thatcher Funeral to Push Gun Control
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral is April 17, but President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden are too busy pushing gun control to attend.
A U.S. Embassy spokesman explained that Obama is unable to attend the funeral of our Britain’s Iron Lady and staunch U.S. ally during the Cold War because “this is a hugely significant week in terms of U.S. politics.”
The spokesman elaborated, saying that because the First Lady and Vice President Biden “are the president’s point people on gun control,” their attendance at Thatcher’s funeral is not possible either.
“This is a week when there is a lot of movement on Capitol Hill on gun issues,” the spokesman said.
In lieu of the President, the First Lady, the Vice President, or even a White House Envoy attending, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) is sending “a U.S. delegation that will consist of two men who would be traveling as private citizens to the funeral already.” SOURCE
I don’t care too much, one way or the other, if the Brits are offended at anything the USA does or says. Over the last 2 decades the Brits have led the way in political correctness and the primer *How to lose your nation to Islam in one easy lesson*.
I don’t give a damn about what ANY Brit thinks, but this isn’t about the run of the mill Brit, this is about showing respect for Margaret Thatcher, one of the greatest and most dignified leaders this world has ever known.
Mrs. Thatcher is deserving of RESPECT, but RESPECT is something that Barack Obama and his administration have no comprehension of.
It seems that no Democrat, Liberal, Progressive, Left-minded free thinker, whatever it is that the Libtards are calling themselves now is incapable of showing respect for REAL leadership, as is demonstrated by their constant, continuing and unwavering support of Barack Obama.
I have long contended that Obama and his wife, I REFUSE to call him *President* and I REFUSE to call her a LADY, I believe that they are both not just LOW CLASS, I believe them to be of NO CLASS. I mean NONE!
It’s one of those things; you can take em out of the ghetto…
And I direct this at ALL Democrats, Liberal, Progressive, Left-minded free thinkers, whatever it is that you Libtards are calling yourselves; it’s about RESPECT.
Senate Finally Passes Thatcher Resolution, Despite Dem Attempt to Gut It
On Tuesday, the US Senate finally passed a resolution to honor recently deceased former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) had been holding up the resolution over the resolution’s word choice. Fighting him on that was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Menendez was reportedly offended by McConnell’s language, which Menendez thought insulted other countries.
McConnell, meanwhile, reportedly felt that Menendez wanted to water down the resolution to a very basic play-by-play of Thatcher’s life, ignoring the Falklands Island dispute and Thatcher’s role in the deployment of a nuclear deterrent in Europe. One GOP aide told The Hill, “The Democratic resolution attempts to black out history,” and said that the Democrats attempted to remove language quoting Thatcher as stating, “all attempts to destroy democracy by terrorism will fail.” SOURCE
Lady Thatcher has more class in her little finger than the entire Democratic Party does if you combined every last one of them.
Lady Thatcher had courage too; she had the courage to call terrorism for what it is, she stated her opinions, unafraid, and she had the audacity to be a real *hard-ass*, all the while being a LADY in doing so.
Rest in Peace Mrs. Thatcher, you will be missed.
