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.

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.

Robert Bork
General Schwartzkoph
Dr. Koop
Margaret Thatcher

Yet, he is quick to note the passing of rap singers, street thugs, and movie critics.

He is such a shallow, narcissistic, tool.

Obama needed time for his Ministry of Propaganda to fashion a statement that would convey condolences in proper English with veiled undertones that he hoped she was now roasting in Hell.

That takes a long time to do.

I imagine even his Goebbelmeister aide declined to do so.

Finally

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.”

I understand what you are saying, so let’s see if they had time to respond:

White House Schedule - April 8, 2013

http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule/complete

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?

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.

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.

Can’t people read just about anything they want, in between the lines?

That’s like saying silence speaks volumes...it really doesn’t, 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.

When Obama leaves office he will spend more time in Hollywood than anywhere else. Expect to see him in cameos playing the part of famous African Americans or playing himself. He has the money and the pull to become a producer. He worships Tinsel Town and they worship him.

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.

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.
