... no "triangulation" here:


> The White House
> Office of the Press Secretary
> For Immediate Release
> April 08, 2013
> Statement from the President on the Passing of Baroness Margaret  
> Thatcher
> With the passing of Baroness Margaret Thatcher, the world has lost  
> one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has  
> lost a true friend.  As a grocer’s daughter who rose to become  
> Britain’s first female prime minister, she stands as an example to  
> our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be  
> shattered.  As prime minister, she helped restore the confidence and  
> pride that has always been the hallmark of Britain at its best.  And  
> as an unapologetic supporter of our transatlantic alliance, she knew  
> that with strength and resolve we could win the Cold War and extend  
> freedom’s promise.
> 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.
