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 tomorrows service in St Pauls Cathedral will be led by two Reagan era secretaries of state: James Baker and George Shultz. Though President Obama himself had not been expected to attend, there had been speculation that he would be represented either by Vice President Joe Biden or wife Michelle. The Queens decision to attend

The Brits should be thankful this classless POS will not send hmself or any of his worthless tax dodging administration.
It is disgraceful, but that is exected from this low life Mother humper.
I turn my back on him.
Absolute embarrassment! The little pos is just a plain old...
remaining comments self censored in the name of civility, and good taste.
A complete and total douche bag.
There is nothing in the world that is more disgusting than a filthy democrat.
Obama is a real class act.
Americans should be proud to have such a man as president.
...and frankly Scarlett, I think I could go on for an hour and never run out of appropriate words of description.
Isn’t the House going to send someone from the United States?
God, he’s a sack of shit.
Michele Bachmann isn’t from the United states?
I didn’t think the Kenyan would waste his golf time at the funeral of a “typical white person”. FUBO!
Of course no official representation at the funeral. PM Thatcher was a woman, Conservative, and not a muslim.
I look forward to pissing on his grave.
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.
I’m glad that Biden will not attend.
The Iron Lady did not suffer fools gladly.
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.
"The Vatican Of The East"
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.
arrogant bastard. and fie on all who support him.
sic semper tyrannis
Actually that is the nicest thing he could do, to not foul the scene with the likes of his people.
