Skip to comments.Obama's Official Snub Of Thatcher Funeral Shows How Small He Is
Posted on 04/17/2013 11:47:06 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer
Protocol: President Obama declined to send a high-level delegation to Wednesday's funeral of Britain's Margaret Thatcher. It's a measure of how little he values the special relationship and a sign of his own smallness. Back in more gracious times, vice presidents routinely attended funerals of foreign dignitaries. As such, the presence of Vice President Joe Biden if not Obama himself would seem fitting for as significant a U.S. ally as the late Prime Minister Thatcher, if not out of warmth of feeling, then simply to represent the U.S.' gratitude. Thatcher's uncompromising friendship with the U.S. helped to set off a free-market revolution, end the Cold War, and left the U.S. and U.K. the standard-bearers for freedom in the world the very basis of the power Obama now enjoys. But appallingly, not even Biden could be spared for the funeral of the most consequential British prime minister since Winston Churchill.

Joe should have been there...It’s one of those jobs that VP’s traditionally take care of.
A very small and petty boy. Acts like a two-year old a lot of the time. [no, I won’t take back the “boy” part]
Given bidens habit of running off uncontrollably at the pie hole, it is probably a good thing he stayed home...
Is there anyone alive who did not already know that Obama is an incredibly small and insecure narcissist?
Some day this POS’s time will come and I hope no one sends a delegation.
obama will go down in history for his great accomplishment - becoming president due singularly to his skin color.
He’s a clod, and so is his bimbo wife.
She was an anti-communist, he shouldn’t be there.
Pray for America to Wake Up
smaller than bj clunton’s pee pee.
Obama can’t be bothered. He’s too busy playing tickle the pickle with Reggie Love.
I wouldn’t ask that ‘boy’ to shine my shoes. He would screw it up.
The VP was there.
The one that had the job before someone gave it to an airhead senator from Deleware.
Correction. A small, small, small commie.
Everyone knew he was not going to go, and had he gone, it still would have not qualified as a “high level” delegation, IMHO.
Unfortunately, his people will make a bigger deal out of than Reagan, MLK, etc. Count on it.
At least VP Cheney went to show his respect. None of the former presidents went either, not that’s any excuse for this administration.
Dinesh D’Souza does have it right. Britain represents one of the western imperial states that consumes him with rage.
Presidents or ex-P don’t usually go.... but it’s a normal job for a VP.
