Plus we lowered our flags to half staff for Mariah Carey, but didn’t mention Chris Kyle. In all honesty, I don’t think the flags were lowered on Presidential order, but it is a reflection of our media....
Margaret never donated any money to Obama’s campaign or campaign’s. See that is all that matters. Also Thatcher was a counterpart to Reagan and we all know how much Obama loves channeling his inner Reagan. Sorry for the sarcasm, really I am, honestly I am telling the truth just like Obama.
What a surprise... /sarc
Happiness to me would be to be able to sit with those two with a two-finger scotch and listen to the stories they would tell...
Personally I am not offended byb Obama and his obvious snub...I would rather he NOT say anything, the only people who would marginally appreciate the Administrations recognition of her passing would be people in our part of the political pendulum swing...
Nobody on the left would care to give it any time to reflect...
WE are the ones that count, and appreciate what she did for her country,and as a staunch ally of ours...That’s allthat matters to me...
“Hollywood (even to include Ebert) is part of the Communist machine. They are comrades to Obama.”
It is not surprising to me, just look at how many of them view America as through the camera lense. I’m sure that is why the Colorado Dem lady thinks that magazines/clips are not refillable. She sees them get discarded in all of the movies.
We had another tell us that the sequester would make us all live like in “Les Miserable.” Dear Leader felt like a set of American movies in DVD form was an “honorable gift.” Their voters get their news from “comedians.” They all believe anything, so long as it was in a movie.
Naturally, Roger Ebert is morned at a very high level.
“Obama keeps his hatred of colonialist GB alive through the dreams of his father, communist Obama Sr.”
I don’t mean to be a nitpicker, however it is not dreams of, it is dreams FROM. That makes a huge difference. That said, my nitpicking only strengthens your point.
Obummer ordered the flags to half-staff for Whitney Houston but not for the ambassador to Libya.
You were expecting anything better from him?
Some great heroes have passed in the past few months with barely a nod from the Lyin’ King.
Yet, he is quick to note the passing of rap singers, street thugs, and movie critics.
He is such a shallow, narcissistic, tool.
That takes a long time to do.
I imagine even his Goebbelmeister aide declined to do so.
Colin Powell-”I think she was a great leader, someone who had a vision, a purpose and went after that purpose and brought everyone along with her for a while,” former Secretary of State Colin Powell said on CBS’ “This Morning.” “But the British people have lost great inspiration. They have lost somebody who should be an example to anybody in political life today.”
“She exuded influence and power,” he continued. “The hair style, the dress, her manner, the way in which she carried that handbag. When she walked into a room, you knew somebody had arrived and you’d better be careful. At the same time she had an extremely warm side to her.”
obama-President Barack Obama said “the world has lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has lost a true friend.”
“She stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be shattered,” he continued. “As prime minister, she helped restore the confidence and pride that has always been the hallmark of Britain at its best. And as an unapologetic supporter of our transatlantic alliance, she knew that with strength and resolve we could win the Cold War and extend freedom’s promise.”
Point taken. Thanks!
I understand what you are saying, so let’s see if they had time to respond:
White House Schedule - April 8, 2013
No public schedule.
I would expect that the death of one of our Ally’s previous executive leaders would warrant a very quick acknowledgement, except when schedules prevented such action. Clearly, their schedule was not in the way of a well thought out and timely statement.
I can’t really say, as I haven’t read between any lines. Perhaps the WH has private schedules?
Powell can KMA too. His statement reads nice, but it is actually BS.
Nope. Every day they publish a schedule that usually begins with the Presidential Daily Briefing. Obama’s day usually starts with that breafing at around 10, give or take a half hour.
I’ve figured out what you mean by “I don’t read between the lines,” it really means you refuse to think. In fact, I provided a link to you where you could have actually looked for yourself at his normal schedule, yet you didn’t even bother to take that look.
I think it is fair to use our observed FACTS that we have learned over the last 5-6 years to draw conclusions in the actions we see today. It is called CONSERVATIVE reasoning to consider history, fact and science as the basis for intellectual reasoning.
When she meets up with Ronald Reagan they will have a ball up there in heaven. What fun that will be.
I see that you’re quite adept at reading between the lines of what people say, kudos...if it was a private schedule, would it be published?
Why would you even believe the public schedule of this administration?
Chris Kyle’s family is still waiting for the call...
Zero....late as usual...
Everything you say is ridiculous. You are a liberal and an Obama supporter. You will defend him no matter what he does or says.
Anybody that takes you seriously has to be someone who is new to FR and hasn’t figured you out yet.
I don’t defend anyone, I just raise questions about what people say. There is a difference.
To be expected....the clown knows little about true leadership.
then I’ll read it for you...
Thats like saying silence speaks volumes...it really doesnt, it only says what one wants to hear.
LOL. What an utterly naive and disgusting comment. It clearly shows your limited ability to understand the evil in Obama's heart.
His delay indeed is purposeful and has the intent of showing the left that he has NO respect for Thatcher.
P.S. Go the DUmp and be with your comrades.
What is usual protocol for a president’s response in situations like this, and - yes or no - does Obama’s deviate from the mean?
Why is this a surprise? Ebert was a filthy,despicable,worthless,talentless punk who supported the nation’s Maoist Party at every turn.Mrs Thatcher played a huge role (along with Reagan,Pope John Paul II and others) in bringing down the Berlin Wall.Most of the civilized world cheered as it came down.Ebert,Osama Obama,and others,wept.
“...Zero will never know the privilege...never....”
Yeah, the communists were pushing to get him on Mt. Rushmore, but there wasn’t enough physical room for the ears.
I do not know.
So hearing what is not said and reading what is not written, is what you go by?
Make sure you’re correct.
“I see that youre quite adept at reading between the lines of what people say, kudos...if it was a private schedule, would it be published?”
OK, now I see you are being purposefully obtuse. If you refuse to THINK, then there is no sense in any further response to you.
He doesn't deserve to.
Thank you for pointing it out. I have been around awhile, but was still responding in good faith. I appreciate your letting me know my responding was in vain.
ok, you obviously know what is correct...again, kudos
Sometimes you step on a worm, and all you’re left with is goo on your shoe. Best to just wipe it off and move on.
Wasn’t it Chris Christie who lowered the flags for Houston?
No respect. The BLEEP BBLEEP BLEEEP in the White House has no respect for anyone except his buddies like Bill Ayers.
Roger dated and married black women (he even suggested to Oprah that she try syndicating her show and Oprah also attended Jeremiah Wright’s church).
It’s about The Chicago Way.
That and he was probably busy posting twitter bumps to the Leftist’s orgy of hate.
Well DUH!...Ebert was a flaming libtard.
