A quick internet search reveals Thatcher once criticised America. To be fair she was only 24 years out in her calculations.
I for one am SHOCKED that a former Prime Minister has criticised a current President in this way
What can her motives be? Is it constructive criticism aimed at helping Obama, or is she aiming to help the Republicans win in 2012?
Update: As 2 anonymous commentors have pointed out the article I linked to is not actually by Lady Thatcher but a contributor to her website who may not even know her.
I should have made this clearer.
I now have in the title.
I think the story is still interesting, and still wonder if Thatcher will help the Republicans in the 2012 elections. Remember John McCain was photographed with her in 2008 – as was Guliani.
