Moran: The World Has Lost a Powerful Force for Freedom

Jerry Moran

WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement on the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:

The world has lost a powerful force for freedom, and one of the greatest leaders of our time,” Sen. Moran said. “Margaret Thatcher helped shape Democracy’s finest era as a tireless advocate for conservative ideas, free enterprise and human dignity. From transforming Britain into a place of economic opportunity, working with President Reagan to bring the Cold War to an end, and helping to forge the Coalition of the Gulf War, Margaret Thatcher shared and defended America’s values – moral, political and economic. From a shopkeeper’s daughter to The Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher rose to the challenges of her time and shaped history in a way few leaders ever have. She continues to be, and will remain, an inspiration for all who dare to positively transform the world.”

    Or as one British commenter said:

    “My personal opinion – she was an exceptionally poor role model for women in power and displayed the worst elements of leadership; a complete narcissist (grandiosity, greed, arrogance, self-absorption, entitlement, and hostility). She was a selfish, arrogant, nasty woman. I still cringe when think of her. Ding dong, the witch is dead.”

    Is that the same Margaret Thatcher who called Nelson Mandela a terrorist?

      She was also for gun control, nationalized healthcare, and higher taxes. Still standing by your words, Jerry?
