I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

From the official White House statement (H/T, Vodkapundit):

Here in America, many of us will never forget her standing shoulder to shoulder with President Reagan, reminding the world that we are not simply carried along by the currents of history—we can shape them with moral conviction, unyielding courage and iron will. Michelle and I send our thoughts to the Thatcher family and all the British people as we carry on the work to which she dedicated her life—free peoples standing together, determined to write our own destiny.

Emphasis mine.

Obama carrying on Margaret Thatcher’s work? Where did I put that brain bleach?
