Thatcher-Clinton Comparisons Show Hillary’s Vulnerabilities

email Email

The death of Margaret Thatcher led numerous media commentators to draw dubious comparisons between Britain’s “Iron Lady” and prospective president Hillary Clinton.

But Thatcher spent her entire life espousing the same core principles—including opposition to the Nanny State and unbending resistance to Communist tyranny. What, precisely, are the consistent ideals indelibly associated with Hillary Clinton? Moreover, Thatcher contributed dozens of pithy, quotable remarks—like “don’t go wobbly,” or “the problem with socialism is you ultimately run out of other people’s money.”

Hillary’s most memorable statements involved dark hints about a “vast right wing conspiracy” or saying of Benghazi, “what difference does it make?” Finally, Thatcher climbed to power on her own while Clinton initially gained national influence through her husband’s achievements. The contrast between these women highlights undeniable vulnerabilities in Hillary’s potential White House bid.

    Lady Thatcher was a colossal world leader who changed Britain profoundly, helped bring down the Soviet Union, and called it like it was. She was not afraid of opposition for her standing up for what was right, true, and civil. She is one of the greatest leaders and statesmen of the 20th century,

    On the other hand, Mrs. Clinton doesn’t even come anywhere near the stature of Mrs. Thatcher. She is known for nothing memorable, but is the poster child for the radical leftist, feminist, pro-abortion, anti-life ballooning nanny state whose nauseating obeisance for her incompetent boss only worsens her chances for holding any future office.

    She should retire to NY and make millions on the lecture circuit, spewing her ungodly venom. She’s a perfect example that shows it’s who you know, and not what you stand for, that is the road to riches and notoriety.

    The cult of Hillary won’t fly. She is not in the same class as Margaret Thatcher.

    Hillary could never hold a candle to Mrs. Thatcher..rhetoric, real accomplishments, a principled life, and lasting effect on society. Could you image a 1 on 1 debate…what an image to ponder.
