    Dubakis is classless, and he shows how much so, yet again. Classic liberal kindness and tolerance.

    From Bambi, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all.", and in general it is evil to speak ill of the dead, even if you disagree with her political views.

    @ Wanderer, tempting, but we are better than that, even if he isn't. We know Margaret Thatcher leaves the world and better place. Jim is just jealous.

    And Abraham Lincoln messed up the lives of so many slave owners. The unions in Britain had a stranglehold on the economy that impoverished everyone. As to the poor coal miners, President Obama has been doing everything he can to put coal mines out of business, based on his fear of global warming (which has stopped for the last 15 years). How come Dabakis is not critical of Obama for doing the same thing that Thatcher did? Then there are the people who work in producing oil and gas in the US; Obama's prevention of the Keystone XL pipeline and the efforts by EPA to interfere with production of new fossil fuel sources (that will make the US independent of foreign oil in a deacde!) is affecting thousands of jobs, but Dabakis does not dare criticize the president.

    I wonder how Jim Dubakis will be remembered? Will "Ding Dong…" be his epitaph?

    "Nothing scares a Democrat more than an intelligent woman" And one with clear vision and integrity - and one who doesn't define lying as a "misspoke" and "I was not informed" excuses.

    No, nothing scares a Democrat more than Hillary. Why do you think they all flocked to Obama's camp in droves? Even all of Bills top advisers bailed Hillary for Obama. They all knew exactly what she would be like as a tyrant for a president. Only the socialist media and gays have a love feast for Hillary. Thumbs up for Margaret Thatcher and her inspiring legacy.

    Dubakis's comments remain proof that nothing scares a Democrat more than an intelligent woman.

    Gail Fitches:

    Your source of news may be as flawed as the main media.

    Margaret Thatcher was a known Bilderberg Member. Henry Kissinger talked wonderful about her, which makes me suspicious on who she really was. Henry Kissinger is into depopulation and wrote the National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM200): Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests. Anywone invovled with a globalist like the Bilderberg Group and friends with Henry Kissinger, that wants to control the world and create a "New World Order," I am not a fan of. However, my condolences do go out to her family members.

    Was Jim Dabakis as critical with Ted Kennedy?

    We can use more Margaret Thatchers.

    A sad day for the world. The great irony is that her time as PM was cut short because she sought to limit the role of the UK in the European Community. History has proven her right. The Iron Lady will be truly missed.
