Margaret Thatcher

 
When Margaret Thatcher took office in Great Britain the unemployment level was over 13%. When she left office the unemployment level was 5.5%. During the eleven (11) years she was Prime Minister of Great Britain she turned back the tide for the country sliding from socialism to communism, helped defeat communism in the former Soviet Union by being the first democracy world leader to forge an alliance with Mikhail Gorbachev, saying, "I believe we can work with him", and maintaining her principled stand for Conservatism throughout her tenure.
 
Now I hear on the news that liberals in England are cheering her death and saying she was a failure as Prime Minister. Just exactly what do liberals who reside in a democracy want from their leaders? By most standards she was a very successful Prime Minister who abated the fall of the economy while she was in office. She saved jobs for people who had them and created more for people who didn't. Why can't people with a liberal political persuasion judge a leader by their accomplishments rather than ideology?
