Former President Transparency Threatens to Cancel Denmark Speech 

One thing that President Barack Obama liked to play up was the fractured fairy tale that transparency was a key part of his administration. In this latest little dust-up, the former President practices more of his transparency.

Kolding currently faces a deficit of 100 million kroner in its next year’s budget. The town’s mayor, Jørn Pedersen, justified using taxpayer dollars to fund Obama’s invite-only talk, claiming the event is effectively a marketing opportunity for the town, according to Danish news outlet JydskeVestkysten.

“At this event, current and future leaders will have an opportunity to experience President Obama first hand. Everyone can expect to be inspired. And we have every reason to be proud,” Kolding Mayor Jørn Pedersen said……..
