Just wondering if Obama will snub the Brits once again by refusing to go to Prime Minister Thatcher's funeral.

What say the hive?

No, he will send John Kerry at most.

Nancy Reagan has been invited, hopefully she will be able to attend.

Gorby should be there as well.

It depends. How's the golfing weather in the UK right now?

Poll fail, you forgot the obvious choice: Obama will send a lackey, like Biden or Kerry, in his place.

Honestly him being there, with the associated security requirements, would detract from the occasion. I hope he doesn't go.

I was thinking the same thing, but you have to figure the funeral service will need the highest level security anyway. How many world leaders will be there?

This. Hopefully Nancy Regan is well enough to attend. I would imagine GHW Bush will attend if he can. Maybe Clinton and GWB. BHO will just send Kerry or Shotgun Joe.

He needs to go on another vacation. Something exciting, like hang gliding, or skiing.

Security will be very tight, but easier to manage if you don't have to coordinate everything with the USSS.

This is the same faggot that returned the Churchill Bust.

If he does show, he'll make it about him somehow.

Though I highly doubt he'd take the time. Maggy was exactly the type of person he despises.

ETA He gave the Queen an IPOD with one of his speeches on it. He gave the Prime Minister a box of incorrectly formatted DVD's.

He HATES the British, maybe as much as he hates America.

Now I'm just getting pissed. Off to U Laugh U lose.

Knowing the Obama's sense of class and style, if he does he'll bring a shoebox greeting card that the wookie will pick up at the drug store on the way to the funeral.

He has made speeches stating he his much like Ronald Reagan. He will represent the spirit perfectly.

But in reality the lazy bastard won't go because it would disturb his base.

I voted no, but if he sees any political capital to gain by going he will. Plus it would be another vacation for him and he and the first family do love themselves some vacations.

He wouldn't go anyway.

I really don't think he ought to go, no purpose served and just waste more of our tax money flying his circus around. Now if it were the queen who just past then I think it would be appropriate for our president to go, even though Obama would find some way to insult the Brits and fuck it up.
