New Obama ad hits Romney ‘Swiss bank accounts’
In fairness to Romney, he did first consider depositing the money with Jon Corzine but wisely considered other options.
From the CS Monitor:
The Obama ad is partly in response to one released last week by the conservative political group Americans for Prosperity, which suggests money from Obama’s $814 billion economic stimulus package went to overseas green-energy companies. Congress passed Obama’s massive spending measure in hopes of pulling the U.S. economy out of the worst downturn since the 1930s Great Depression.
The economy is by far the biggest issue in the election, and Romney, who has seemingly locked up the nomination to challenge Obama in November, continues to attack the president on the issue.
The new Obama message, which will be broadcast in battleground states Virginia, Ohio and Iowa — accuses Romney of having “shipped American jobs to places like Mexico and China” when he led the investment firm Bain Capital. It also says Romney “outsourced state jobs to a call center in India” when he was governor of Massachusetts.
“It’s just what you’d expect from a guy who had a Swiss bank account,” the Obama ad says, referring to Romney’s 2010 income tax filing that showed some family money is kept in accounts abroad. Romney’s fortune is estimated to be as much as $250 million.
I’m sure all the zillionaires paying $40,000 per ticket to attend the Clooney/Katz $10 million Obama fundraiser in L.A. have all their money deposited just up the 101 in the People’s Reserve Credit Union:
If you can’t stand political ads, just hang in there — it’ll all be over in just over… six months.
