    Obama sends former officials to Thatcher funeral

    Who cares, it's a freaking funeral for someone who hasn't been in politics for over 20 years. I don't think our President should have sent anyone if they didn't want to go. There's a lot more important **** for our leader to worry about than this.

    It would be an exaggeration to say that you'd be the only American who wouldn't be offended, but not by much. And why bring up Boston? His decision to snub Britain was made before yesterday's attack.

Obama has a lot on his plate these days especially in the immediate aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. Do you really want your nation's leader attending a funeral while your country is investigating a domestic terror attack?

    I didn't think so.

    Find something else to complain about, folks. This ain't it.
    Are you saying that O's decision to snub the funeral was made yesterday afternoon???

    You're expecting the world to snub the Carter funeral when the time comes [hopefully not for many more years]?

    Just an observation- seems President Obama has not made one major correct step in your book. The person I feel is dropping the ball is BushII. He is the closest President we still have mobile enough to attend AND is the most politically compatible to Thatcher. He needs to get over it and attend the funeral.

    Churchill was a remarkable leader of the British people
    Disraeli was a remarkable leader
    Queen Victoria...

    In the British Empire's long history I'd say Thatcher is a push.

    No, I don't expect the world to snub it, just as the world didn't snub Thatcher's funeral.
