Mrs. Thatcher paid tribute to Pres Reagan even though she was very ill at the time, I am so sorry we don't have an equal giant returning the honor.

Condolences on both our countries.

The best Britain has ever or will ever see!

Too bad the two parties in Britain resemble those in the US. One’s as bad as the other.

Time to tear up the Magna Carta, but wait. There’s Charles and Camilla.

What a horridly written and biased obituary: the only reference to her impact on the UK and its economy is to report that unemployment quickly doubled once she began privatization?

We shall not see her kind on this world ever again. She and Dutch are now together, sadly shaking their heads of what we did with what they did...

Prayers for her family.

Mrs. Thatcher ranks with Churchill in the ranks of those who have stood hard in the defense of freedom.
She will be missed.

One of my heroes. A brilliant lady and leader to whom the world owes a great debt of gratitude. I am thankful to have seen her speak in person in the mid-1990’s. Rest in Peace Iron Lady.

The photos of these icons makes me long for an America which has been squandered away.

Godspeed, Mrs. Thatcher.

She was a GREAT leader.

She convinced this former chauvinist that women can be great leaders when they stick to conservative principles. (Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, etc are other examples).

The mid-to-late 70s were a disaster. Carter was in office. Oil embargos. Iran went from ally to enemy. The Soviet Union flexed its muscles everywhere. Third-world despots felt empowered to take charge, including Argentina. America was transitioning from 60s-type hippies to disco-hedonism. Nobody respected government.

Then the Reagan-Thacher-JPII juggernaut turned things around.

Our greatest ally during the closing years of the Cold War. The world is far poorer for her loss. She was truly one of the greats.

RIP....

Britain was certainly in the toilet whem Maggie came along.

Brits can call themselves VERY lucky that Maggie came along, was who she was and did what she did.

I feel fortunate to have been alive while Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher were standing up to evil in this world. They set an excellent example of principled leadership. It’s a shocking contrast to today’s fixation Obama has with turning the USA into a gay-obssessed, gun-grabbing, socialist nanny state.
