    The furor over Mitt RomneyMitt Romney's millions and offshore accounts have died down somewhat as his supporters try valiantly to defuse the touch of dishonesty surrounding cries of tax evasion, Capital venture investments and his huge net worth. In fact, they claim overseas accounts is not tax evasion for it was perfectly within the limits of the law to send your money on a vacation.
    The last time I checked we had sufficient big banks within America's shores that are capable of handling Romney's many millions. So there has to be a reason for hording all that money in the sunny Caribbean Cayman Islands and frosty Zürich, Switzerland.
    The former Massachusetts Governor and Bain Capital Exec. says storing his money in foreign accounts, with nondescript P.O. Box numbers, is legal according to 'Uncle Sam.' That might be right, but why go to the trouble to send his money on such a long journey if it didn't benefit him in a big way? Moreover, if Romney wants to be leader of the U.S. shouldn't he practice what he preaches? How is he going to reform the tax codes if they have worked so well for his bottom line? How is he going to ask Americans to sacrifice, while he is using every loophole on the books to line his already padded pockets?

    What would the GOP narrative be if Obama funneled money to offshore accounts as Romney?

    What do you think the Dems would say?

    I answered the question fairly.

    If the GOP isn't screaming about Romney having money, why would they scream about Obama having money?

    What do you think the Dems would say?

    Id be saying he is free to place his money wherever he wants.

    And you'd ask me what the word "free" means.

    What exactly is he hiding if he shares that he has offshore accounts full of money. It's kind of obvious what's there. Money.
