Fred Thompson Hops Across The Pond

GreenMountainPolitics1 has read The Commanding Heights by Daniel Yergin. We even required that our post-college house mates watch the PBS companion series with us (much to their yowling).

So we "get" the Thatcher revolution. And, what Margaret Thatcher did for the global economy was a very big deal.

Of course that was almost 30 years ago. In a time and in a place that bears zero (ZERO!) resemblance to the world as it is now.

So we're not quite sure what Fred Thompson hopes to meaningfully accomplish burning thousands of gallons of jet fuel to have lunch and a photo-op in a foreign country with Margaret Thatcher.

Less government regulation? We get it!

But it's 2007. Not 1980.

When will the Republican Party realize that the world has changed?
