I wonder why Streep mentioned Thatcher's support for socialized medicine and climate change. :roll:

Didn't yet get to see the show, but I do love Meryl Streep. She's even better at convincingly going into character as another person than Mitt Romney. And that's quite a statement!
:P

Yes, clearly she anticipated the question - but then Huck pretty much opened that door for her, so one can't blame her for taking the opportunity. :lol:

I imagine she has been asked that question a lot, as many of us would love to hear that Streep was won over by at least SOME of Thatcher's conservative positions.

I do like that Streep appears to be one who recognizes the artifice of Hollywood (she is an expert at "putting on" a persona & taking it off when she's done with it) and doesn't take that aspect of it seriously. Now if only she would take some time to inform her politics... :P

I added another video on "Are taxes in the Bible?" to the original post.

My husband and I looked at each other when she said that, and said, "What??" We lived in England in the late 1980's and let me tell you, what Meryl Streep said about Thatcher's views on Govt run healthcare simply are not true. There was an ongoing debate there about Thatcher's view that she would like to reorganize the NHS (Britain's National Health Service) and introduce more privatization into the healthcare system. Living in the U.K. and listening to the debate there (as well as experiencing a hospitalization while I was there) really helped to shape my views on Government run health care.

Streep is wrong on this one.

While we're on the subject of Margaret Thatcher, here are some more of her wise words. Oh, how I long for another leader in the same mold!

I love this quote from her! "Wars are not caused by the build up of weapons. They are caused by an aggressor who believes his objectives can be achieved at an acceptable price." Lady Margaret Thatcher This is a much more elegant way of saying "Peace through superior firepower." A principle I happen to strongly endorse.

Thank you for sharing the Thatcher clips! I didn't even bother to check if Streep's claim was legit - I should have known better! :roll:
