President Obama’s re-election team continues to bash Mitt Romney over offshore bank accounts, producing a video asking random people a simple question.”Do you have an offshore bank account?”Naturally, the folks interviewed by the Obama campaign say no.Posting the video on YouTube, the Obama campaign cited Associated Press and Vanity Fair stories about overseas bank accounts.”Is he avoiding paying U.S. taxes by having money in those tax havens?” the campaign says. “Was he trying to hedge against the dollar by having a Swiss bank account?”The Obama campaign is seeking to pressure Romney into releasing more tax returns.”Until Romney releases additional years of tax returns, the American people will never know whether he created this shell corporation to intentionally avoid paying U.S. taxes,” said Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. “What is Mitt Romney trying to hide?”

Is there a serious question in there somewhere? This is election season and both sides are in full on, flat out, mud slinging, innuendo mode. Each side will want to “stick to the issues” while trying every trick in the book to make the other side look like evil incarnate. As Shakespeare said they’re “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

It’s absurd, ridiculous, and childish, but it’s how we do it. – lol

Obama has plenty of off-shore accounts. They’re in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc.
They are everywhere but in this country.
Obama’s bank is the American taxpayer.

If you guys hate Romney so much; That’s all the more reason for me to vote for him.
Maybe more than once.

I have a offshore bank account. Got it many years ago in response to my distrust of the FDIC, a trust that hasn’t changed much. I’ve got all kinds of insurance because I don’t trust the majority of people who run this country.
.
If that makes me one of the evil, I can totally live with that.
.
I’ve lost track of who’s on which side around here. That’s probably the best sign of health I can ask for.

Where did I say that Romney was evil incarnate? If you read my post you would see that I said that each side tries to paint the other as evil incarnate.

We need more rich Americans.

It’s none of any one’s business what they do with their own money.

You should worry about how Obama is spending America into bankruptcy. Create wealth, don’t destroy it
or redistribute it. Hello.

”It’s none of any one’s business what they do with their own money.”

Well ….. How about when they Funnel 100’s of Millions of it to Offshore Banks to avoid paying Income Tax on it?

Who then is Forced to make up for the Shortfall? The ever Disappearing Middle Class.

If DKV was one forth the woodworker as he is a shit stirrer he might be a little more palatable. I don’t believe for one second he’s here to lean anything about woodworking.
