Daily Mail ^ | 4/15/13 | James Chapman

Posted on 04/15/2013 7:08:52 PM PDT by Nachum

Friends and allies of Baroness Thatcher expressed ‘surprise and disappointment’ last night as it emerged President Obama is not planning to send any serving member of his administration to her funeral. Whitehall sources have revealed that the U.S. delegation at tomorrow’s service in St Paul’s Cathedral will be led by two Reagan era secretaries of state: James Baker and George Shultz.

It’s probably better this way. Any “envoy” he would send would probably be a national embarrassment.

Of course no official representation at the funeral. PM Thatcher was a woman, Conservative, and not a muslim.

It’s understandable that Obama doesn’t want to honor Thatcher. After all, if it weren’t for her, Argentina would have the Falklands (or “Maldives” as Obama calls them), and Saddam Hussein would have kept Kuwait.

Michele Bachmann was chosen to represent the GOP house.

A very apt and careful choice on their part. Though working class myself and a former union member, I am dismayed at the overkill on Margaret Thatcher.

It is true that jet lag and the difference of diet and climate tends to zap one a little. I have been to St Paul's Cathedral and escorted up to the very top. I saw the area in 1947 when all around the cathedral was flattened by air raids.

In spite of the travel and irrespective of what ever religious beliefs Michele Bachmann may have, this is true. She will at least be within Christopher Wren's masterpiece of over 300 years of age . Lucky for her and I know she will appreciate the experience.

Obama is acting as though his personal world view is more important than the historical relationship between two of the major western democracies.

It shows he does not consider himself a representative of the American people, but of himself.
President of Barack Obama.

I don’t want the African communist scumbag Ubama anywhere near Thatcher’s funeral.
It is far more appropriate that genuine Americans from the Reagan Administration attend.

Anyway, the rats don’t like any funeral they can’t turn into a campaign rally.

It is good to see how this president just keeps this country in the gutter with his hatred for those that kept the world safe during the cold war. I guess In time he will be remembered as the clown in chief that destroyed this nation.
