CU Reagan. Q: “Mr. President, any thoughts about your last meeting w/ Prime Minister Thatcher as President?” President: “Yes, sad thoughts, that this will be the last we time we shall meet in this capacity.” Q: “Madam Prime Minister, do you expect the Bush Administration to be substantially different from the Reagan Administration?” PM: “First, my thoughts are sad; I thought the ceremony this morning was most impressive, & I shall always remember it. And we shall be looking back & seeing what a different world it was when we first began in the early 1980s; but because it is in the nature of both of us we shall also be looking forward because all though I may not be seeing the President in this capacity I’m sure I shall see & talk w/ him many more times.” Q: “Do you expect a big difference w/ the Bush Administration?” PM: “Each & every person has their own style in politics. When people who share the same beliefs put their stamps of their own style on putting those particular beliefs into action. President Reagan has an unique style, which the world has come to know & love. George Bush, too, will have his own style but I think we are all very fortunate in the western world for the first time we shall have continuity of policies stretching over a second Presidency following a first, and that gives enormous stability & confidence to the feeling of the World.” 16:29:58 Q: “Will you two stay in touch?” PM: “Of course!” Q: “Will you visit the ranch?” PM: “I shall wait for an invitation first.” (laughter). Q: “Mr. President, why isn’t Dan Quayle coming to the State Dinner tonight?” President: “You know, I don’t get involved in the guest list there, and I don’t know why. Whether this was some other engagement or not but, so I don’t know the answer to that. But he would be welcome anytime.” 16:30:37 Black. (new group of reporters) 16:30:39 PM: “How are you all?
