If John Key did this?

I can’t wait to see what David Shearer, Russel Norman and all the left wing blogs say about this news out of the United States.

 President Barack Obama is nominating a childhood friend to represent the U.S. at the United Nations office and other international organizations in Geneva. He’s also tapping a major fundraiser for his re-election campaign to be ambassador to Morocco.

If confirmed by the Senate, Pamela Hamamoto will have the rank of ambassador. 

Hamamoto was Obama’s classmate during his Hawaii school days. She introduced him at a fundraiser last year and raised more than $500,000 for his campaign. Hamamoto was previously an executive at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch.

Dwight Bush Sr. is Obama’s pick to be ambassador to Morocco. Bush is president of a financial consulting firm in Washington and also bundled more than $500,000 for Obama’s campaign.

    The Browns should take note, if they contribute to Nationals campaign JK may make Mumbles and Wussell ambassadors for the mentally challenged.

      A little late for those two isn’t it.

    Isn’t Merrill Lynch the firm of ‘Rich Pricks’ that Labia and the Gweens refer to as John Keys mates? Surely they couldn’t be the same company donating to Obama and the left! Don’t expect our richeous media to report on this anytime soon!

    Bros – When will you realise Sheep and Hippie are principled politicians and want to stand up for common justice and social equality. I am tired of repeating this message….

    That’s what mates are for.

    Ms Hamamoto; I think being a member of the Wall Street Oligarchy has more to do with her appointment than who she went to school with.

    Helen Clark does it all the time. How many failed labour MPs in the UN?
