A little comparison of the Tin Man to the Iron Lady

Found on facebook this morning


Obama: "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." -- defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber
Thatcher: “To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukaemia with leeches.”

Obama: A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.'
Thatcher: “To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects”

Obama: “I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby”
Thatcher: “Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.”

Obama: “"The Cambridge police acted stupidly."
Thatcher: “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.”

Obama: “"It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of -- I don't know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing.”
Thatcher: “Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy”

Obama: “"We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick."
Thatcher: “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”

Obama: “'We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times...and then just expect every other country is going to say OK'
Thatcher: “There can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty.”
