Can't believe Anette Funicello is being mentioned in the same breath. To bad leaders like Thatcher and Reagan are gone, the world is in need of that kind of leadership and is found wanting, its even worse some of you have revisionist history on who our true heros were.

Revisionist? That's ironic coming from you.

We need leaders that promote more topless protesting.

Yep. The world needs more administrations that had over 130 former cabinet members be indicted or found guilty on federal charges. Woohoo!

That's disputable. Why didn't we see unemployment drop until she was out of office?



Blue is the UK. Thatcher came to power in '79. She left (humiliated and hated) in 1990.

Maggie and Reagan took over in some stressful years. The bugaboo of Communist threat to world stability was real. Everybody was scared ****less about the USSR and their influence. Thatcher and Reagan laughed at them and broke the Iron Curtain. Those two had a lot of impact on world events, brought a new phase into geopolitics.

People call her a loser for helping Reagan stand up for the private sector and stand against the Soviet Union. Remember them?

Meanwhile your great leader Obama doing nothing to stop Iran from getting a nuclear device, or N Korea from develping their nukes into warheads that can fit on a missile. Oh but he is making sure magazines cant have 30 rounds, gays can marry, lying to us about healthcare reform, screwing up Libya and getting people killed, slow economic growth, high taxes, high has prices but a really good golf game.

Nah let them enjoy their economy and their socialist President, he hasn't done a thing for the good of this country and seems hell bent on destroying it. Liberals can't be happy unless everyone is miserable with them. It took Reagan 4 years to finally start turning around the mess Carter left us and roughly the same for Thatcher to recover the "progressive mess" in her country as well...I doubt we recover from this idiot. If people are still stupid enough to have those beliefs they aren't ever going to have a clue.

Why is it Bush could do nothing right and you guys continue to give this idiot a free pass? Ever think the Democratic Congress both in the Senate and the House during Bush's tenure could have been responsible at all? Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi...remember every person deserved a house, issued credit to the folks who couldn't afford a house? NBC counted the dead every night on the world news, day blah blah blah of the conflict, Cindy Sheehan and protestors cried on television every night and yet Obama continued the wars, created more of his own, continues to take away liberties, has scandal after scandal everyone ignores and there is no outrage and folks like you are silent giving him the free pass? Is there anything, anything at all this guy can do that would cause you concern?

Cause our moron in chief,GWB screwed up everything he touched.
Not to mention that for the first 6 yrs of GWBs presidency REPUBLICANS controlled all three houses. The damage was already done at that point. GWB & posse had already ****ed up with the GWB tax cuts &,the colossal blunder called the Iraq war.he got handed a country in peace, & with a surplus. He then left it in financial ruin.

So I'll assume you didn't read his take on Thatcher, most of which you'd probably agree with. Oh, well. Continue wallowing in your ignorance.
