    George W. Bush Featured Speaker at Cayman Investment Conference

    The conference will feature Bush as the keynote speaker on the first night, and British billionaire Sir Richard Branson on the second night. The timing of the conference could land awkwardly during an election season that's been marked by speculation about Mitt Romney's finances, particularly his offshore investments in tax havens like the Cayman Islands.

    I'm guessing they couldn't get Mitt on such short notice.

    Media 'Blackout' as Bush Speaks in Cayman Islands - ABC News

    The keynote speech by the former president is "totally closed to all journalists," and conference organizers are forbidden from discussing any aspect of it even in general terms, spokesman Dan Kneipp said.

    "We've got a complete blackout on discussing the Bush details," Kneipp told The Associated Press.

    They are even as secretive as Romney.

    Sponsors of the two-day conference include KPMG, a company that provides tax advisory services, and Deutsche Bank. It costs $4,000 to attend and other speakers include billionaire Richard Branson.

    Cayman Islands officials are proud of the British territory's role as an offshore finance center. But members of the U.S. Congress and advocates for changes in tax laws have accused corporations and wealthy individuals of using so-called financial havens to improperly avoid taxes.

    I think they should videotape and sell the tape.

    I might buy one.

    Interesting that this is happening just before the election.

    Media 'blackout' as Bush speaks in Cayman Islands - San Jose Mercury News

    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands—Organizers of an investment conference in the Cayman Islands say they have been forbidden from disclosing any details about a speech by former President George W. Bush in the offshore financial haven, an event spokesman said Thursday.
    The keynote speech by the former president is "totally closed to all journalists," and conference organizers are forbidden from discussing any aspect of it even in general terms, spokesman Dan Kneipp said.
    "We've got a complete blackout on discussing the Bush details," Kneipp told The Associated Press.
    The restrictions were imposed by the former president's staff, he said. Bush was scheduled to speak Thursday evening at The Ritz-Carlton on Grand Cayman Island.

    Are both Bush, Jr. and Christie sabotaging Romney?
