State's Office of Protocol must have decided the Obama Administration had no no one of sufficient stature to represent the US officially at Margaret Thatcher's state funeral, including Obama himself, but he could have designated any one of the great Americans who did attend.

I'm not saying it had to be "crazy joe" as you call him, but if Barry could send someone to Chavez's funeral he sure as h e l l could send someone to Margaret Thatchers funeral. Oh, and I agree with your assessment about Biden. He's a BS bottle-headed puppet who can't seem to find an idea of his own without putting his foot in his mouth.

There will be no representative from the current White House present at Margaret Thatcher's funeral, because the administration has decided not to send anyone in his current administration.

President Obama is not planning to send any serving member of his administration to her funeral. Sources have revealed that the US delegation at tomorrow's service in St Paul's Cathedral will be led by two Reagan era secretaries of state: James Baker and George Shultz.

Though President Obama himself had not been expected to attend, there had been speculation that he would be represented either by Vice President Joe Biden or wife Michelle. However, the Obama administration had said it would not be attending Thatcher's funeral. Like Israel, BHO is now snubbing Great Britain. This is not what I would call a loyal ally.
