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

What say the hive?

He wuld only ruin it. Besides the people paying their last respects probably won't let him get aywhere near it.

Either way we will bitch about it.

if he does, he'll make a vacation out of it

And make it a photo op about him.....

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.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 5:53:05 AM EDT
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.

He doesn't have even the ounce of diplomacy required to make a showing, make a historically accurate and respectful comment, and not use it to push his agenda.

Hell no, after all she was just a Prime Minister, not deserving of attention from a king! He'll send some underling to perform the duty. Besides, she stood for everything he reviles!

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

Any reason for him to fire up Air Force one and take it on a vacation at a whopping $181k he will.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 5:57:29 AM EDT
No, he will be too busy entertaining Jay-Z and Beyonce at the White House and looking through their Cuban vacation photos.

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?

Fuck, he probably threw a party when he heard of her death for god's sake.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 5:59:46 AM EDT
"Snub the Brits"?

The bigger insult would be if he showed up.

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.

Yeah, the old gal might start spinning right there.

He needs to go on another vacation. Something exciting, like hang gliding, or skiing.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:09:09 AM EDT
I was going to say no because of Norks.... then I realized he would much rather spin it into the Republican's fault and needing gun control.

Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:15:33 AM EDT
If he went, it would result in him making a speech about him.

I actually hope he Does Not Go

He is Classless

Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:17:31 AM EDT
Only if he can drag the body of a dead white child with him.

No matter what happens, everything is about BHO in his mind.

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

Interesting question. She wasn't the Head of State. Should be Joe's job. On the other hand, it's Thatcher... Interesting dilemma.

ETA: And she requested no State Funeral.

I bet his sends his wife as a representative

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.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:23:36 AM EDT
I said yes just because he better, but he could easily not go
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:34:52 AM EDT
Of course he will go - perfect cover for a week-long European vaca for Moochelle and the little leeches.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:43:17 AM EDT
If he does go, he'll try to make himself the center of attention.

It would be a profound insult to Lady Thatcher's memory if he did.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:50:55 AM EDT


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.



Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:51:00 AM EDT
Yes. He will place a IPod on the casket

And that is why I hope he does not go

Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:55:00 AM EDT
If he goes, he will bring a few DVDs as gifts to the Thatcher family.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:56:58 AM EDT
It'll be an excuse for a long weekend with a little golf, maybe some shopping for the family and friends.

I totally agree with you......
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 6:58:06 AM EDT
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.

Good for her. She knew that those things end up being about the attendee's. Let her family celebrate her in privacy.

Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:00:10 AM EDT
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.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:00:26 AM EDT
Why would he attend the funeral of his sworn enemy?

Maybe he'll bring an iPod as a gift too.

He wouldn't go anyway.

Zero despises the British due to their colonial "occupation" of Kenya.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:02:42 AM EDT
He would go if they held the funeral in Scotland, therefore he would be able to get in a couple rounds of golf at St Andrews.

Biden.

I doubt it.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:07:15 AM EDT
He will lay an iPod with all his speeches on it on her grave.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:11:07 AM EDT
he can't...9:00 tee time.
Link Posted: 4/9/2013 7:17:29 AM EDT
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.
