I hope Krauthammer is paying attention - he MAY give credit to Palin for “getting educated”.

The passing of the torch?

Maggie has been taking care of it since Ronnie went to his reward.

Just watch. The have always HATED Thatcher,,, but now she will be the esteemed Lady Thatcher. And Sarah will have no business trying to take advantage of her greatness. Just watch.

But remember how they have always despised Thatcher.

A stopover in Poland for Lech Walessa (SP?) and the circle is complete. Boy would I love to see both give her full-throated endorsements. Add that to Bibi’s visit and that would send the Msmlibs and the rest of the world one hell of a message.

People can say what they want, but I think Mike Reagan said it best “Welcome home Dad.” Yea, I know, there was only and will ever be one RR, but she sure closely represents his beliefs and vision.

Honestly, I really don't think Palin is doing this for a media tweak. She is preparing - seeking wise counsel from the one lady who is in the same vein as Reagan was, at the same time and same level - the closest connection of who Sarah wants to emulate - both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

She's running. She's not playing games with what really matters.

JMHO.

I believe you to be quite correct.

She is making contacts with those that will be instrumental in forming her foriegn policy.

Godspeed, Sarah!

Yes, my thought was that they should get to the meeting quickly. I think it’s been some time since she appeared in public.

Thatcher stabbed us in the back over Grenada!!!!!!!

Yet, we alienated our allies for her stupid, bloody, dog & pony show in the Malvinas. If the Argentines were commies, she'd have gladly stepped aside.

Thatcher worship from Americans makes me puke. She was a crappy ally.

I gather next Sunday. However the press is scramblin on this some say she arranged the meeting other reports say Thatcher extended the invitation.

Also press is starting up the what will Cameron do talk and why has Sarah not reached out to him.

Soap Opera basically. Palin nailed the press again!....lol

She couldn’t go to the Royal Wedding because of ill health.

It’s possible she summoned Palin.

...Has to be real soon, the earliest might be sometime in July - August, since the One Nation bus tour in the West, Mid West and South could take up the whole month of June. I could see her announce a run and take a trip overseas including Israel (because she told Bibi that she would make an official return visit)

So she was just supposed to sit idly by while the Argies invaded the FALKLANDS (not Malvinas)?

“10 Downing Street - the Margaret Thatcher Years” is her autobiography - a great read - I highly recommend, (although a bit weightier than “Going Rogue”).

Allies occasionally have differences, Grenada was a member of the Commonwealth, so you could see that it put Thatcher in a precarious position politically, seems that they worked through it in the end, that’s the way it goes . Hardly a “stab in the back.”

I suspect there is something else behind your derision of Thatcher.

We, reluctantly .... backed her bloody defense of 19th Century Imperialism. But, she dumped all over Reagan for the totally just Grenada rescue.

"...we alienated our allies for her stupid, bloody, dog & pony show in the Malvinas."

They are called "The Falklands" for starters, and we put her under great pressure to give in to the Fascist Argentinians - but she held firm - for Britain. Good for her not wanting to be an American lap dog.
There - go ahead and puke your guts out.........

Check this out. Thatcher will be at several public events this summer, including an unveiling of a statue of Reagan on the 4th of July:

"A stopover in Poland for Lech Walessa (SP?) and the circle is complete."

Not quite. A visit to Rome, and the grave of John Paul II, and THEN "the circle will be complete". Walesa couldn't have happened without the pressures applied by Karol Wojytla as a bishop in Poland, and then as Pope JPII.

If you "really" want to see the media have apoplexy, the above would do it.
