Despite being called out by some of the most liberal publications in the country for proven lies, like Mitt Romney being a pioneer in outsourcing American jobs, the Obama campaign continues their attempt to smear Romney with ridiculous attacks. This time it’s for having bank accounts in other countries and not releasing more of his tax returns.
Here’s the latest from Debbie Wasserman Shultz:
“I would really like to see Mitt Romney release more than one year tax records because there's been disturbing reports recently that he's got a Bermuda corporation, that a secretive Bermuda corporation that no one knows anything about, investments in the Caymans, you know, investments in he's got a Swiss bank account. Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss business account and secretive investments like that? It's just something, a thought that I'd like to leave folks with.”
“Since when is it bad to have a Swiss bank account – since when is it bad?” Glenn asked. “First of all, Debbie, Mitt Romney has released his tax returns for 2010, his estimated 2011 returns as well. He filed an extension. So he doesn't have the actual returns yet. That's two years’ worth of tax returns this time.”
Glenn went on to explain that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has refused all of the requests for transparency on her taxes. She never releases her tax returns, yet she continues to bash Mitt Romney for it, and the press doesn’t hold her responsible. He went on to point out that the reason she hasn’t released any of her taxes is because she doesn’t have to.
“There is no law that requires anybody to release their tax return but here we have the head of the DNC attacking and smearing Mitt Romney for something she herself absolutely refuses to do. To call these people hypocrites would be redundant and, quite honestly, it's fatiguing,” Glenn said. “So why even bother? I mean, to say that they're hypocrites and they're lunatics, to say that people who believe in what they're saying, you know, to really attack those people is really worthless. I mean, the people who believe that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has any credibility are probably fewer in number than those who believe we went to the moon.”
Glenn later pointed out another reason that it’s ridiculous to criticize him for having a Swiss bank account or any other type of foreign bank account, because regardless of where your money is kept you pay the same amount of taxes.
So, why would you have a Swiss bank account?
“I'll tell you why you have a Swiss bank account. Because when all the other banks collapse, the Swiss won't – that's why. Swiss have always protected the money,” Glenn said.
Glenn also took a few minutes to explain how the left always exposes themselves when they go on these attacks.
“The things they’re saying about Mitt Romney say more about them than it does about him or you or me,” Glenn said.
“And the truth always comes out in the end,” Stu added. “In this particular case on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has invested in the Julius Baer Group through the Davis Financial Fund. The Julius Baer Group from their website is the leading Swiss private banking group focusing exclusively on the demands of sophisticated private clients, family offices, and external asset managers around the world.”
Yes, that’s right – Debbie Wasserman Shultz, who is attack Mitt Romney about his Swiss bank account, has a Swiss bank account.
“They will destroy themselves. See, they always point to their own cancer. Whenever somebody says, "That's wrong, that's that," just follow the line of where they say something is bad and rotten, and I guarantee you that these people always point to their own cancer. It's really amazing. It's really truly amazing,” Glenn said. “Don't worry. They will destroy themselves. All we have to do is remain true to who we are, celebrate who we are, lift each other up. Be creative, be active, live it every step of the way. And get to the voting booth. And it's over.”
