Obama Refuses to Send Any Official Representative to Thatcher Funeral; Boehner Will Send Unofficial, Private-Citizen Delegates

TFG. He claims he can't spare a man due to the critical phase of his anti-gun Moral Panic.

This is a hugely significant week in terms of US domestic politics,’ a spokesman added.

He said that both the First Lady and the Vice President were ‘the President’s point people on gun control’, adding: ‘This is a week when there is a lot of movement on Capitol Hill on gun control issues.’

Boehner will attempt to correct this international embarrassment (I mean the snub, not Obama), but a few Representatives aren't the same as high officials from the actual government.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced he will send a delegation to London this week to represent the U.S. House of Representatives at the funeral of Baroness Margaret Thatcher, former prime minister of the United Kingdom. The delegation will be led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).

Bachmann will also go.

Incidentally, the BBC did in fact play "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" on their top-selling-songs countdown. Their reasoning seemed solid enough: They can't black out the news nor attempt to silence free expression. (They once did just that when "God Save the Queen" rose in the charts during the Jubilee; they just didn't acknowledge the song existed.)

As a compromise, they played a seven-second clip of it, acknowledging the song's position in the UK charts (number two) while avoiding celebrating the hateful spirit in which it was purchased. The song, of course, is being purchased to play at actual parties --yes, they call them parties -- celebrating Thatcher's demise.

If the American media ever reported all the left's obnoxious, crude, hateful behavior, the public might not have the sense that they're the "easygoing, flexible ones." Fortunately for the left, this will never happen.

Corrected: Apparently it was seven seconds. More importantly, I'm not sure the BBC really avoided delighting in her death -- judge for yourself, but they seem rather determined to make the Death Celebrants' point for them by noting all the ways in which Thatcher had disappointed them.

What I mean is -- I wasn't sure what I meant a moment ago -- that playing the song without commentary would have been less offensive than what they did, which was to "explain" the controversy by painting a sympathetic portrait of her detractors. Which is not only conceding to them their little stunt (it gets played on the list), but then amplifying that by also spreading their message.

A fair few of them will. The British press -- even those sympathetic to Obammy's socialist policies -- do not appreciate the way he's acted towards them and Great Britain. WE don't like his behavior because Britain has long been our closest ally and a solid friend. THEY don't like his behavior because they consider him a bratty little American upstart, and how DARE he not give Britain due deference.

They couldn't care less if he insults the Queen, Baroness Thatcher, the Prime Minister, or anyone else of that type because they don't like them much either. But Obammy hasn't shown THEM -- the British media -- the kind of fealty they feel he should. So they'll roast him for this snub, albeit in their usual passive aggressive way.

Although the more overtly right-leaning media will skip the passive and go right to the aggressive. That's what makes the Brit media fun.

Disagree wholeheartedly. Obama is the lily-white crowd from Occupy Wall Street. Those are his peeps -- educated beyond their intelligence, children of moderate to very serious privilege, with tremendous daddy issues.

It just happens that Obama's father (who abandoned him and, let's face it, regrets his existence) and stepfather were not as MSNBC-white as his grandparents and his mother.

But, culturally, he's no different from a community college English professor.

But women and leftists who hate Thatcher do feed from a common root. "Some jumped-up grocer's daughter thinks she can run a country? What cheek! I hope I live to see someone give her little working-class headstone a right piddling."

Women are attracted to leftism because it presumes authority, like a prince. But leftism is a thing that does stuff and works, so obviously it's fundamentally male.

Posted by: Mikey NTH - Pirate Scum of Umbar at April 16, 2013 02:05 PM (hLRSq)


An article linked in one of the News Dumps here at the HQ soon after her death included a quote from a man who'd been laid off from his manufacturing job while Thatcher was in office. He's been unemployed and on the dole ever since. "I've been waiting for that bitch to die for thirty years," he said.

From this I am led to believe that, in that thirty year time frame, Lady Thatcher was ACTIVELY keeping this man from finding any other employment. He literally could not get another job because she single-handedly destroyed all opportunities. He'd be standing there on the threshold of a new job, bursting at teh seams with hope and ambition, and then BAM! Thatcher would kick down the door and punch him repeatedly in the nads while telling his would-be employer what an awful, terrible, HORRIBLE man he was. Over and over again. For thirty years.

That's the only explanation

These people are unhinged. The leftist ideology doesn't require any self reflection, because the worth of the individual is solely defined by that individual's place in society. When you can blame everyone else for your failure as a human being and never have to blame yourself, you'll hold onto perceived injustices for an entire lifetime. They will NEVER fade.

275 Leftism is the means by which the elite gain power to tell the great unwashed how to live their lives. It's all about power, nothing more, nothing less. It's fueled by their deep seated belief that they really are better than the rest of us, after all, they went to the best schools and come from the best families. They also learned how to suck cock at an earlier age and do it more frequently and with greater zeal than anybody else, save the DNC under Debber Whatshername Schultz.

But, I guess it's a damned good basis for a political ideology.

Don't forget the obvious motivation: It's easier. Being liberal, a Democrat, is easier. They've had the wind at their back for at least a century. "Vote for me and I'll spend other people's money to give you stuff" is easy. Advocating sex without consequence? Easy. Blaming a shitty school on lack of funding? Easy. Less individual responsibility? Easy.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) charged Tuesday
that Monday’s bombings in Boston is proof that sequestration
endangers the U.S.



googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1347323895031-4'); });
"" style="border: 0pt none ;" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" name="google_ads_iframe_/1011927/PJM_300_by_250_middle_0" id="google_ads_iframe_/1011927/PJM_300_by_250_middle_0" frameborder="0" height="250" scrolling="no" width="300">




Hoyer argued during his weekly pen and pad meeting with reporters
that “sequestration is a stupid policy” and that the Boston
incident is further proof that it is unwise to cut off funding that
could safeguard Americans’ security.

311 What a disgusting display, people were killed and maimed less than 24 hours ago and Democrats are coming out of the woodwork exploiting it to push their liberal agenda.

Via Politico:

With the Boston Marathon bombings less than 24 hours old, some on Capitol Hill are beginning to say the attack shows why Congress should’ve stopped automatic spending cuts from taking hold in March. [...]

Rep. Xavier Becerra of California, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said that the first responders working Monday aren’t sheltered from cuts.

“We have to send you less money to help your first responders,” Becerra said.

??? But none and I mean none of the Dems are coming out worrying about the Military Cuts? Or did I miss that?

I agree. But when you bring this up as evidence of Obama snubbing Britain, it's helpful if you mention that Baker and Schultz are going right at the start instead of having your liberal acquaintences point it out to you.

As much as I've come to think of GWB as a globalist big gummint RINO squish, I'll never see him as a dishonorable man who would snub someone like Maggie. The more likely explanation is that he knows his presence would start near-riots amongst the usual suspects in the UK. His security footprint would have to be enormous. I'd be shocked if he hasn't already reached out to the family in some other way.

366 The Anerican taxpayer has spent untold sums to send Michelle Obama on vacation after vacation, indepedent of her husband; has supported this woman in a style a millionaire's wife would enjoy. She has no official legal duties that would so justify And yet somehow, in return for supporting this social climber in her lavish lifestyle, when it comes time for her to give a little payback, it is impossible for her to be present at this funeral. Somehow she has morphed into a Senator this week. How convenient.

If only Maggie could have timed her death for Michelle's next trip to the Swiss ski slopes, then perhaps it would have all worked out.

Right...

1.) I had EXACTLY this situation happen to me. I mentioned that Obama wasn't sending anyone, someone else brought up that he was sending Baker and Schultz. Made me look like an ignorant idiot. If I'd brought them up first (i.e. "Obama's only sending Baker and Schultz instead of members of his administration"), then I couldavoided that problem.I'm trying to avoid that sort of thing happening to anyone else.
2.) What other comments regarding them? If there's another article here on the blog discussing it, then I missed it. If it's buried in another article's comments sections, then I haven't had the time to read it (some of us can't devote unlimited time to trawling through all of these threads for information). I searched THIS comment thread before posting, and there wasn't a single mention of Baker by name until I brought him up. So I'm not quite sure how what you're even talking about.

Can anyone recommend a fair biography of Thatcher, or a history of her
time in office? I was a teen in the 80's/early 90's and quite frankly
wasn't paying attention. All I can find right now are hateful blurbs
about her from English pop stars. Accordign to them, all Thatcher did
was fire poor coal miners, attack Argentina needlessly, andsuck up to
Reagan in his paranoia against the Soviets. Posted by: Damn Sockpuppet at April 16, 2013 02:10 PM (YmPwQ)

Add to that the fact that most modern entertainment that mentions her is negative, so that future generations will also never understand what made her great. Iron Lady was a disgraceful movie (Meryl at least, the actress playing a young Thatcher was great), and Billy Elliot sides with the unions. (The musical by Elton John has the song "Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher" where they curse her name.)

374 For us blue staters in particular,

Even though some of them may seem to be our friends, when the rubber hits the road, liberalism trumps all. The ones who don't know us personally hate us. Not like we hate their viewpoints; but in the sense that they think we are evil, loathe us, and would happily dance on our graves in front of our kids at our funerals.

375 #318 I have noticed that Bush 43 doesn't go anywhere out of the country except for Africa, where they love him for his anti-AIDS work and his true love of the people.

Since we know that there are Leftists who want him tried as a war criminal, and since I am sure Obama wouldn't do a thing to defend him, and I am certain that Cameron is a weakling PM, I think it is wise for him to stay home.

I would also guess that his Secret Service advised against it. I also wouldn't be surprised if Obama pulled his passport on the QT.

I am, as you can see, in full-blown paranoia against the current administration, so I am not going to attack President Bush for something for which I do not have the explanation.

Are the Brit leaders still glad we didn't vote for that Rube Mitt Romney? Because I have no doubt he would have sent SOMEBODY were he in the oval office.

Also, ppl keep mentioning the Atlanta Olympics bombings. Just want to remind people that Mitt ran a safe, secure SLC Olympics. . . five short months after 9/11. I honestly believed there would have been an attack, but nothing happened. Yeah, so glad we avoided electing THAT idiot into office. sigh.

Posted by: Reggie1971 at April 16, 2013 07:44 PM (8cOY0)

381 Obama probably hates Thatcher for two major reasons:

One. Obama and the unions have a deep love affair, and Margaret Thatcher took the nationalized corporations which British unions essentially owned and controlled, and sold them off to private ownership. Overnight, unions fell to the bottom of the economic hill, and union bosses lost their cushy salaries and control of the country. They hate her with the hatred only a dethroned king and aristocracy can hate those awful bourgeoisie.

Two: because Thatcher in many ways represents the old British Empire, that evil imperialist power that colonized Kenya, the land of his father's people. Yes, there is something quite personal about his hatred for the British. Watch him find a way to ignore the future funeral of Queen Elizabeth if it happens while he is in office.

Posted by: I'd Rather Be Surfin at April 16, 2013 10:28 PM (g5wi5)

382 Oh, and presidents overcome their personal issues and attempt to act as statemen during these events. But if Obama has the ability to act like one he certainly has not revealed that possibility as yet. He continues to act the spoiled child and it is beyond embarrassing for his country to face our allies during his latest temper tantrum and none-existent sense of courtesy.
