The Obama campaign's ads against Mitt Romney's foreign holdings have rubbed the government of Switzerland the wrong way.

Yes, because Switzerland is no longer a “tax-haven.”
The Swiss have sold out their independence to the US Treasury and IRS, so their big banks can continue to be allowed to play with the other children on Wall Street.
It was a pretty god haven for all that looted NAZI gold for decades and decades though.
I wonder if the Swiss like most foreign countries still love Obama like they did during the 2008 campaign?
Now that the Swiss banks are open to the IRS and the US Govt, who are the “swiss” banks now? Has anybody else filled their old niche?
That’s why I hide my billions in Buenos Aires, Macao, and Cape Town.
It’s clearly not enough that Obama’s crew make over the United States into some sort of socialist sh*t hole like the USSR in its worst days; they want to make over the whole planet on that model, too.
Obama’s even pissed off the Swiss. Didn’t think that was possible.
Indeed. Unfortunately, before his "reign" is over he'll piss off a lot more.
