In Obama's defense — Thatcher was governing during his "Choom Gang" years – so he probably has no idea who she is.—

Perhaps he is one of the people tweeting, “Who is Margaret Thatcher?”
"Who?" Barack Obama on being told of the death of Margaret Thatcher.—

Has Obama released a statement about himself on Thatcher's death yet?—

But, so far, his statement has been: Crickets.
Twitter users are keeping watch.
Didnt take Obama White House long to issue a statement on the passing of a Roger Ebert …. nothing yet on Thatcher.—

Will be interesting to see what (if anything) Obama says about Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher. He hates England almost as much as he hates US.—

Still no statement from Obama on Thatcher. He still fundraising?—

Tick tock, Mr. President.
Update: Hours after the news of her passing, a statement has finally been released.
Obama on Thatcher: "She stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be shattered."—
