Obama´s Official Snub Of
Thatcher Funeral Shows
How Small He Is

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/16/2013 7:06:13 PM

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

I for one am glad he isn´t going, her memory certainly doesn´t need the likes of him.

Why would the Brits need Obama, Michelle, Biden, et. al? They probably already have a sanitation crew.

Not surprising Barry won´t go. He´d only be a face in the crowd, one dignitary among many. In other words, the attention wouldn´t be focused on him. Better to go to Boston and get the accolades and photo-ops available there.

Small, petty, mean, self-centered. I agree that his own presence would be a farce. But to not have an official presence of the administration is truly small. But totally in character.

Not surprised by The Bamster´s official snub of The Baroness Thatcher´s state funeral. Keep in mind Barry´s Kenyan Mau Mau grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, was rounded up by the British colonial authorities in 1949 and spent two years in a high security prison...And whatever became of Sir Winston´s bust that once resided in The Oval Office?

Barry´s drunken, official daddy and his other daddy, Frank Marshall Davis, really instilled the old kenyan hatred of the British in him, didn´t they? He is one mind-damaged dude who would never qualify for his own concealed carry permit.

It is indeed a small act, and indicative of this man´s pettiness; on the other hand, it´s unfortunate timing to die during such an american administration, just as it´s undortunate to be a Boy Scout and earn your Eagle during this adminstration, because your congratulatory form letter comes from this dope, thus it means nothing to you. So dear Mrs. Thatcher, i´m sure, is amused and relieved right now.

Obama doesn´t deserve to go to her funeral. Small is not the word I would use for him. Vengeful is more like it. Deceitful is also appropriate since the true Obama is never on display, but the true Obama is fairly easy to see if you simply look. This "snub" shows the true Obama, which is a vengeful Marxist (and racist) to the core.

Let´s save a bunch of money and get rid of all the protocol folks at State Then, use some of that money for Obama and his classless administration to teach manners.

I second No. 12´s comment. When my late grandmother turned 100, BO signed her birthday letter. Members of the family wanted to frame it in her room at the care home, but I would not let them. I can´t stand looking at him or listening to him & I didn´t even want to see a letter auto-penned with his signature every time I went to see her. She never would have voted for him. I hope this country is learning a good lesson about affirmative actions with chips on their shoulders.

I seriously don´t think I could sit in the presence of her and listen to anything she could possibly say. I wish she would show me the same honor her husband did to Mrs. Thatcher.

This is an insult to "our very special" relationship to Britian. Mrs. Tatcher and President Reagan electrified the world with their free market and thumb-your-nose at freeloaders policies.
Between the two of them, they brought the USSR to an end! God Bless them!!
The USA doesn´t owe anything to anyone, but Mr. Obamawannatakeurgunz should at least have the decency and respect to honor this fine woman by attending her funeral.
Of course, he has no honor... Or decency. He is morally corrupt.

Another poster made a good point yesterday, that Obama travels with such an outrageous amount of security etc. The British are probably relieved he didn´t attend. Obama tends to make every occasion all about him so it actually was a courtesy he didn´t go.
Meanwhile it makes him look like an even smaller person here at home and around the world as well.

From what I have read in the foreign press, obama is not well received in the world at large. I think world leaders realize how insignificant (not even carter was judged insignificant)and impotent the potus is. And frankly, I´ll bet he is too frightened to travel abroad.
I wonder who is delegated to talk him out from under his bed during times of crises? What is the person´s title and how do they perform their duties?

It shows what an absolute disgrace of a President he is. He doesn´t merely disdain Thatcherism, he disdains the "special relationship" and sees it as a holdover from colonialism. My solace is that the Baroness would be delighted by his absence, so blunt a woman was she.

The liberals argue, and probably rightly, that if he had gone, places like this would have been full of remarks as to why he did not belong there. But there are two responses to that argument1)He didn´t have to go himself, that´s what Vice-Presidents are for--also ambassadors (ours apparently didn´t attend either). And (2) sadly, the truth is that 0bama wouldn´t amount to a pimple on Lady Thatcher´s little toe, and he indeed wouldn´t measure up. But he´s (very sadly) the POTUS, and it´s his job to either go or send a suitable proxy.

Obama is a pigmy (the implication is intended) when it comes to statesmanship. That being said, I´m glad that he and the Mooche won´t be there to distract from the solemn occasion. Probably Queen Elizabeth II is relieved, also. I imagine that she was probably shuddering at the thought that the Mooche would put her hands all over her again.

James Baker and George Schultz will represent us well. I´m sure they will comfort Lady Thatcher´s family as would be expected of American representatives.

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane was ´thrown around like a fighter jet´ just after it lost contact with the authorities in a bid to dodge radar, Malaysian military investigators believe. Flight MH370, which disappeared more than a month ago en route to Beijing, is thought to have climbed to heights of 45,000ft - 10,000ft above its normal altitude - before plummeting to just below 5,000ft. The new lead in the investigation comes as the methodical search being carried out in the Indian Ocean continues amid fears that the jet´s black box may have run out of battery. The drastic manoeuvres which must have

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday for either not understanding or deliberately disrespecting the Constitution. "We have a president who doesn´t understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution," Palin said on Fox News´ Cashin In with host Eric Bolling. Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of "We the People." She also said there needs to be "new energy" in government instead of more

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal. Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think

A mention of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), a potential 2016 presidential contender, brought boos from a conservative crowd in New Hampshire on Saturday. Speaking at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, a gathering of conservative activists and figures organized by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United, billionaire Donald Trump said Bush’s recent comments on immigrants coming to the U.S. as an “act of love” were “out there.” “You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name. “And he was talking about people that come

Liberals have lately been employing a political term of abuse that was once mainly a weapon of the right. Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser on Wednesday in Houston, President Obama described laws that he said restrict voting rights as “un-American.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) earlier this year described conservative activist billionaires Charles and David Koch as “un-American.” And amid a rambunctious meeting of the House Oversight Committee last month, the panel´s top Democrat, Rep.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens are getting shocking letters in their mailboxes instead of tax refund checks – nastygrams informing them that the federal government has seized their money to repay debts their parents decades-old debts that they never settled. In some cases, they´re debts the parents never knew they had. And no one warned their children. The 2008 Farm Bill included a single line that made it possible, allowing the government for the first time to hunt down individual taxpayers who have owed Uncle Sam money for more than ten years.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
