2010: Romney closed Swiss bank account b/c adviser decided it could become politically embarrassing


SNIP

Romney advisers stressed that the holdings in the Caymans -- along with those in a Swiss bank account that was closed in 2010 after an investment adviser decided it could be politically embarrassing to Romney -- were reported on tax returns and were not vehicles to avoid taxes.

2. This asshole represents everything that is wrong with the way the world works today.

He's every corporate scam, every shady deal, every unfair advantage, every elitist double-standard wrapped into one blank, soulless, helmet-haired embodiment of banality (as in, of evil).

That he made it this far would be shocking, if one were blissfully ignorant of the field of Republican social defectives with which he's competing.

8. I am thankful for him

He is still the favorite to win the Republican nomination, and this provides a great opportunity for America to have a conversation about all of those things you mention. Sure it's great for Obama and the Democrats to be potentially running against the poster boy for greed, excess, and privilege, but it's even better for America to start to have a conversation about the fairness of the system we have built.

9. Yeah, it was closed after the Swiss government started reporting all the US accounts.

And we're supposed to think this was just a coincidence? Just done to avoid embarrassment?

I want to see the returns BEFORE he closed the account, not afterwards.

10. The question is why

would he have had a SBA if he wasn't trying to avoid taxes?
