Palin to meet Lady Thatcher

Posted by iusbvision on June 14, 2010

File this under awesome. If I had a chance to meet one of the great heroes of the 20th century I would jump at the chance, who wouldnt? No matter what you think of Sarah Palin one must wish her a heartfelt congratulations on getting the Prime Minister’s attention and invitation.

Palin:

Following an article in a British publication on Sunday, I’ve received questions about a possible trip to the United Kingdom. I have received an invitation for a visit to London, and part of that invitation included the offer of arranging a meeting between myself and one of my political heroines, the “Iron Lady,” Margaret Thatcher. I would love to meet her and hope I’ll be able to arrange the trip in the future.

As I wrote last year when I offered her birthday wishes, Baroness Thatcher’s life and career serve as a blueprint for overcoming the odds and challenging the “status quo.” She started life as a grocer’s daughter from Grantham and rose to become Prime Minister – all by her own merit and hard work. I cherish her example and will always count her as one of my role models. Her friendship with my other political hero, Ronald Reagan, exemplified the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.

The USSR and the Soviet Bloc came to an end largely because of the efforts of Reagan, Thatcher, Pope John Paul II and Lech Wałęsa.
