Margaret Thatcher Kept Good Socialism and Got Rid of the Bad Socialism: Lawrence O'Donnell

Lawrence O'Donnell breaks down the mythology put on the late Margaret Thatcher.

From The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
Of socialism in the United Kingdom. today in his farewell to Margaret Thatcher, George Will said she helped bury socialism as a doctrine of governance. Today, it was hard to tell who Republicans loved more, Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher. it is also hard to tell which of the republicans mythologize more. Republicans falsely credit Reagan and Thatcher which bringing down the Soviet Union when they did no such thing. The Soviet Union collapsed from within. To believe that the Soviet Union would be thriving today were it not for Reagan and Thatcher is to believe that communism is a good idea, that it works. [The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell 4/8/13]
