Democrats Gang Up on Mitt Romney's Offshore Bank Accounts
While President Obama's ads attacking Mitt Romney as an "outsourcing pioneer" continue to dominate the airwaves, Democrats across several Sunday morning political talk shows focuses their ire on Romney's propensity to keep his money outside of the U.S. On CNN's State of the Union, Robert Gibbs said Mitt Romney should change his campaign slogan from "Believe in America" to "Business in Bermuda." On Fox News Sunday, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz urged Mitt Romney to release more than one year of tax returns and asks the rhetorical question, "why does an American business man need a Swiss bank account?" On ABC's This Week, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley called out Mitt Romney for "betting against America" with his shading banking activity. On Face The Nation, Senator Dick Durbin stated there are only two explanations for Mitt Romney's Swiss bank account: to conceal wrongdoing or because he thinks the Swiss franc is stronger than the American dollar.
