    Default US sent folks to Chavez funeral but not to Thatcher?

    Is this true?

    I sure hope it's not true.

    Thatcher wasn't a Socialist, why would they send an emissary.

    Well...that, too. As long as I'm being scathing and disrespectful of the POTUS, might as well attribute the proper motive to such a pathetic, inappropriate gift.

    Chavez delegation...
    James Derham, who presently serves as Charge d’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in the Venezuelan capital, the State Department said Thursday that the delegation to the socialist revolutionary’s funeral will include U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks, New York Democrat, and former U.S. Rep. William Delahunt, Massachusetts Democrat.
    Details were not forthcoming about why Mr. Meeks and Mr. Delahunt were chosen to represent the U.S. at the funeral.
    However, Mr. Delahunt, who served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee while in Congress from 1997 through 2011, has a history of quietly attempting to forge positive diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Venezuela.



    Margret Thatcher's delegation includes Michelle Bachman and two other Republicans. IMO, a very real snub of the former Prime Minister and our biggest alley. Former Presidents G W Bush and W Clinton both declined invitations from the UK government to attend.
    It's time we abandon our party affiliations and rather than being good Dems or good Repubs we all become good Americans. MJH345
