While the title might sound like the name of an adult movie the question involves what is inside the box opened by Democrats when they started making the claim that Romney invested money overseas. The Democrats have been harping on this issue as if Romney has done something illegal, he did not. Couple this with the thoroughly debunked claim that Romney outsourced jobs and it is easy to see that the narrative is designed to lie to people in order to keep Obama in the White House.
Debbie Wuz-a-man Schultz of the DNC had this to say:
So we can see why he’s invested in Swiss bank accounts and accounts in the Cayman Islands. And you know, we also need to know why does — what is the allure of investments out of the country. When he headed up Bain Capital, he was a pioneer in outsourcing and shipped jobs overseas. Real Clear Politics
So here Little Debbie wants us to be upset with Romney because he had money in Swiss banks and other overseas areas. She probably should have looked inward first:
Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past. Weekly Standard
Wow, that is going to hurt.
But wait, there’s more. Looks like Nancy Pelosi had overseas investments as well. She made between 1 and 5 MILLION dollars off her investments.
According to Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement, the Democratic House Minority Leader received between $1 million and $5 million in partnership income from ”Matthews International Capital Management LLC,” a group that emphasizes that it has a “A Singular Focus on Investing in Asia.” A quick trip to the company website reveals a featured post extolling the virtues of outsourcing. Daily Caller
Wow, not only does Pelosi have her money in an overseas entity it is in a company that is involved in outsourcing…
Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett has a loan through an insurance company that does business in Bermuda.
Does any of this mean much? Not really because as far as we know none of these folks have done anything wrong. They get loans or make investments legally and as far as we know they pay the proper taxes.
BUT, and it is a big but, Romney is not going around accusing the Democrats involved of any wrongdoing. Romney and the Republicans are not putting out these kinds of claims to make it appear as if something fishy is going on.
Before the Democrats decided to engage in this kind of stupidity they should have checked their own circumstances.
The financial disclosures of all these people are publicly available. Perhaps someone should comb through them and start pointing out what kind of investments Democrats have.
Should people point out that Barack Obama made a lot of money from overseas sources through the sale of his books? Would it be fair to suggest that he did something illegal in this regard?
Should someone suggest that something was amiss because Obama received money from the Stockholm Sweden based Nobel Foundation?
Wuz-a-man Schultz further suggested that it would be nice if we had a candidate committed to America. One could make the claim that since she represents the DNC and said we she was lamenting about Obama.
I am sure she was referring to Romney and I would say that if his investments are proof to her and the Democrats that Romney is not committed to America then the foreign sources of income and investments that they have been involved in indicate that they are not committed to this country.
Whatever it takes to win is how Democrats work.
The best thing to do is to throw them out of office.
Obama must go in November and if the people of Florida are smart they will dump Little Debbie as well.
Never surrender, never submit.
