  •  What do you expect ANY POTUS to say? (4+ / 0-)

    Thatcher was a horrible Prime Minister and from what I've read not a very nice person on any level.  

    But the UK is the closest ally of the US.  Do you seriously expect a US President to publicly condemn a PM who just died of complications related to alzheimer's for stuff they did 20 years ago?  

    It's a typical thing one head of state says when another dies.

    If you're reading this:

    "Michelle and I send our thoughts to the Thatcher family and all the British people as we carry on the work to which she dedicated her life—free peoples standing together, determined to write our own destiny."
    And hearing"yeah, Michelle and I agree with Thatcher, Mandela was a terrorist and Thatcher was right to fund the Khmer Rouge too", then you're reading too much into it.
