Disappointing: Obama will not send a representative to Thatcher funeral


Sen. Bob Menendez tried — unsuccessfully, as it turned out — to block a resolution honoring the late Margaret Thatcher. But he’s not the only powerful Dem who has issues showing respect:


That’s right. President Obama is not sending a single member of his administration to represent the United States at Lady Thatcher’s funeral.

Sir Gerald Howarth, chairman of the Thatcherite Conservative Way Forward group of MPs and peers, said: ‘The bonds forged between the UK and the US through Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher was instrumental in ending the Cold War and liberating millions of people.

‘That the present administration feels unable to be represented as the world marks the extraordinary contribution Margaret Thatcher made will be a source of disappointment to those who served with her in that great endeavour.

According to the Daily Mail, the president’s decision was made prior to yesterday’s bombings in Boston, and a U.S. Embassy spokesman cites gun control legislation as the reason the president can’t afford to spare anyone. He’s just too busy worrying about our guns.

But here’s another theory:
