Obama Campaign Keeps Hitting Romney for Offshore Investments

Posted by Paul Constant on Mon, Jul 9, 2012 at 1:44 PM

Here is a very good Obama campaign ad doing the media's job for the media: It asks some hard questions about Mitt Romney's offshore investments.

Daily Kos says the Romney campaign's response to this video is hilarious and over-the-top:

The Obama campaign’s latest unfounded character assault on Mitt Romney is unseemly and disgusting.

"Unseemly." Cool word, guys. These are legitimate questions that deserve legitimate answers, and I'm seriously starting to wonder if they'll ever be answered. I know most Americans will go way out of their way to excuse nauseating wealth, but the fact that a presidential candidate has money invested in China—and a secret trust in the Caribbean that he signed over to his wife in order to avoid disclosure—somehow seems relevant to the election.
