One Tough Cookie

margaret thatcherIn my opinion two people stand out in the Twentieth Century for not only making the world a better place, but a safer place.  Ronald Reagan’s partner, Margaret Thatcher passed away this week.  Many on the left actually celebrated her death at age 87 which tells you enough about their character.  Some of the interviews were so sad in that many of these idiots were of an age to really not be old enough to really remember her as Prime Minister.

This was highlighted in a book Lincoln On Leadership and illustrated in the recent Lincoln movie starring Daniel Day Lewis. Here are some of my favorite Lincoln quote to honor the man.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
