Democrats Want Romney to Explain Offshore Accounts
Fox News ^ | 7/8/2012 | AP

Posted on 07/08/2012 3:29:30 PM PDT by madison10

...The line of attack, dismissed by the Romney campaign as an "unfounded character assault," follows new reports that raise questions about Romney's personal wealth, which could exceed $250 million. President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is expected to push the strategy throughout the coming week, underscoring their desire to portray Romney as disconnected from the middle-class voters he needs to win the presidency...

Zer0 gets some of his residual book sales money from overseas. His tax return says so. Does he still have an Indonesian account from when he was a kid?

I want Democrats to explain the DNC and 0bama’s overseas funds and fundraisers, 2008 campaign fund sources, the 0bama Hyde Park funding and the 2009-2012 NATIONAL BUDGETs, accounting and off-the-books accounting.

For starters.

They’re bank accounts outside the country. But that’s not important right now.

If the ‘RATS don’t understand offshore accounts, I suggest they Google it. Romney doesn’t have time for their BS. While they’re at it, they may also want to Google “jobs” and “the economy”.

From their talkingpoints:

‘What is he hiding?’

‘Why is he so secretive?’

‘He must have something to hide.’

‘How many offshore accounts does he have ... and why?’

==

Any distraction to keep focus off of the economy, joblessness and ObamaHealthCareTax.

Ironic that the only real major Obama accomplishment was Obamacare and Team Obama are running away from it as fast as they can, now that Justice Roberts calls it a tax. That means it breaks all those ‘no new taxes’ pledges Obama made.

And the Republican leadership wants Obama to come clean on his illegal campaign contributions foreign and domestic. Or at least it should.

Democrats aren’t going to vote for any Republican.

Just concentrate on Conservatives, Republicans and Independents.

It has nothing to do with them understanding offshore accounts.

See my post #13 in this thread.

It is a diversion tactic to keep focus off the economy, joblessness and the ObamaHealthcareTax and to raise suspicion about Romney and his offshore accounts. It doesn't matter whether the 'suspicion' is warranted; whether the accounts are legitimate; what matters is the secrecy, etc. If the Dems really cared, they would investigate the offshore accounts of all politicians and Washington influentials. But don't bet the farm on that ever happening.

I want the dems to explain how money funneled to Solyndra, et al., didn’t end up in Obama’s re-election ghost account(s).

I want the dems to explain why money earned as a result of hard work (Romney) is suspect, while ill-gotten gains via criminal activities (Kennedys/bootlegging), and gigolo activities (John Kerry marrying Teresa Heinz and Julia Thorne) is just fine and dandy.

Oh... and I want the dems to go to Hell (as I’m sure they will).

He needs to just say his accounts are the same as Teddy Kennedy, and leave it at that.

Democrats aren’t going to vote for any Republican. Not necessarily so

Just concentrate on Conservatives, Republicans and Independents. You are right about this! Especially this election year!

Democrats Want Romney to Explain Offshore Accounts

Romney to dumb Dems: "The term offshore refers to banks in other countries. We're a global economy now, and one of the freedoms Americans enjoy is the choice of where to invest one's savings. Next question please".

They are going to keep pushing it, and he is going to say something about how he would be glad to teach them all about money and how it works. Then throw in a dig bout how he NEEDS Obama to teach him about Kobe beef, basketball and golf.

I want obama to explain where every dime of the stimulus went. I’d like him to explain why he’s done virtually nothing about jobs and the economy. What did he know about Fast and Furious and when? This is nothing but distraction from his lazy, rotten, destructive administration .
