Obama likes his golf – it’s unbelievable but he even went golfing after Isis beheaded James Foley and the 21 Egyptian Christians.
Do you know how many times Obama has played golf since becoming president? I came across this funny golf counter showing the number of games he played since his first day in office: http://obamagolfcounter.com/
They missed the 3rd Jan 2014 when Obama golfed with our Prime Minister; John Key, the PM
Banker in charge of of NZ. Apparently NZ is one of the USA’s closest friends.
That’s him here, with Obama >>>
John Key was a former banker who worked at Merrill Lynch and the Federal Reserve Foreign Exchange division.
He was involved in the development of derivatives – the financial contracts and credit default swaps that no-one understands, which led to the toxic sub prime housing loans, which led to the Global Financial Crisis … sigh.
These guys are into classical and economic liberalism – which is supportive of free trade, globalisation, free immigration and cultural liberalism (such as supporting legal recognition for same-sex marriage). They do not have the best interests of their nations at heart.
No wonder we’re losing so much freedom in NZ, what with all the spying, the TPPA, FACTA, and Biometrics collecting (RealMe).
So what do you think of the performance of our respective leaders in guiding our countries?
AND in 2018, NZ taxpayers forked out more than $30,000 on former US President Barack Obama’s visit to New Zealand despite the lack of opportunities for the public to see him.
The sum does not include costs of police time on security. Obama’s visit was arranged by the US-New Zealand Council and appearance fees and other costs covered by sponsors Westpac, Air New Zealand and Mastercard. Air New Zealand is majority owned by the New Zealand taxpayer, but Mr Grice said they’ve made a commercial decision.
“He has 100 million Twitter followers, it’s going to be good for Tourism New Zealand, and I think those are the sorts of criteria on which they’ve made their decision.”
Ahead of the meeting, Key had said even one tweet from Obama about a New Zealand golf course would make the visit worth it in tourism exposure – but that tweet never came.
