Classy: Sen. Menendez reportedly blocking resolution honoring Thatcher; Update: Resolution passes

Will the Senate pass a resolution to honor the late Margaret Thatcher? Not if Sen. Bob Menendez has anything to say about it.

As the Daily Caller reported yesterday — and National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru has evidently confirmed — Menendez is responsible for holding up a proposed Senate resolution to “honor the life, legacy, and example of British Prime Minister Baroness Margaret Thatcher.”

Paying tribute to a champion of freedom is apparently just not that important to the priorities-challenged senator.

Really, Senator?

It is — but what else would you expect from a disgrace like Menendez?



Sen. Menendez proposed his own version of a resolution:

Unfortunately for him, the effort didn’t pan out. The resolution in its original language has just passed:


  • Randi Starr

    well, when you, yourself have no honor and will die without accolades.
    I can see his reason/sarcasm

  • Melinda Towne Craft

    Isn’t this the same idiot who has been trying to get term limits for the president eliminated while Obama’s in office?

    • Garth Haycock

      No, that’s New York Congressman Jose Serrano, but it’s easy to get them mixed up, as all Democrats act alike to me.

      • Michael Anderson (WB)

        To be fair to Serrano, he introduced the same every odd year from 99 to 13, so 4 times while Bush was president as well.

    Wrong ethnic group for my Senator to be concerned with.

  • daPenguin

    he has no interest in Women of a legal age

  • Michael J. Churlin

    New Jersey I hope you are proud of such a fine statesman. Then again as a progressive state who’s modern day claim to fame is snooki, and the situation, they are probably proud to oppose one of the finest defenders of freedom from the 20th century. She was after all partially responsible for the downfall of the soviet union, and that must offend all the progressive communist sympathizers that infest the state.

  • Silenttype78

    Ahhh…. ok. Well I am going to borrow some lefty logic here and say it is because Menendez hates women.

  • Dennis E. Amnott

    Such a disgrace, but perfectly acceptable to all fellow Democrats.

  • Clayton Grant

    I don’t think any Republican would have blocked the resolution if Thatcher had been from the Labour Party.

  • SirLancelot70

    that’s expect from the democratic party who despise conservatives like Margaret Thatcher & Ronald Reagan when they believe in capitalism & freedom(which liberals despise as well).

  • trixiewoobeans

    What a small, small person. So tiny and dirty in his soul.

  • tops116

    Well, it is nice to have Menendez story where the words “hooker,” “cover up” and “corruption” aren’t immediately used.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Oops, you said that out loud! Lol!

  • $27789750

    Man with no honor questions woman with much. Odd that.

    • trixiewoobeans

      She frightens him in death just as much as she would have in life! She would have chewed him up and spit him out, and he knows it!

  • Booker

    Menendez is a disgrace.

  • John W.

    If Obama and/or Harry Reid truly wanted to see the resolution get approved by the Senate, they could have brought sufficient pressure on Sen Menendez behind the scenes to make it happen. More likely, they didn’t want to see any such resolution passed, so they asked for one of the Dems in the Senate to volunteer to provide a block.

  • Brian Roastbeef

    The guy’s a damned sleaze. Can’t somebody just tell him Thatcher was only 15 and get this pushed through?

  • kim

    unanimous? even Nenendez supported it?

  • TrueCenturian

    Why didn’t they just vote on it and read it later? Or was this too important? Hmmm

    I heard he “chased” M.T. when she was in her teens

    As a resident of New Jersey I am saddened and ashamed that you represent
    my state. You have had enough bad press lately, you can’t possibly
    believe this action will endear you to anyone, especially those that
    vote in New Jersey. And if you did, you have spent way too much time
    under the wrong sheets!

  • Garth Haycock

    Perhaps it has something to do with her part in ending the Cold War? Or saving Britain’s economy? You know, things you apparently want to ignore.

  • IceColdTroll

    Want to talk about how many white people Communist icon Nelson Mandela murdered? How’s SA doing since the inmates took over the asylum, anyway?

  • Booker

    She “installed” Mugabe? That white hating dictator? I-don’t-think-so!

  • michael s

    thank you. apparently its ok for right wingers to support dictators. pol pot pinochet mugabe.

    She was also very proud of Britain’s system of socialized medicine.

  • marcellucci

    She probably would have survived if her stroke happened in America….

  • TocksNedlog

    People giving this post a ‘down’ vote need to read it again.

  • Garth Haycock

    You? No. You’re insignificant and nobody would care what you did.

  • lainer51

    are you talking about 50,000 abortions a year? …………….. I didn’t think so!
