Many rich people have those kind of accounts. Who wants to invest in America when socialism looms? Watch that money come back here when we change presidents.

Obama would & will make a good Sociology professor once he is out of office.

Uh, overseas tax shelters long pre-date the Obama presidency. Given your ignorance of that fact, the rest of your post is meaningless.

I guess the fact that Obama passed on two golden opportunities (banks and auto industry) to socialize a major industry means nothing to you, because my guss is you, too, believe there is some sort of shadowy master plan to enslave the country in socialism. Seek help. There are medications that will alleviate the symptoms of paranoia.

Romney needs to win 2 of 3 of Ohio, Penn, Mich and I do not see anyway he can win 2 of them. And that is assuming he wins Florida and he may not win there. Things can happen in the next 3 months that can swing the numbers but as of now, my bet is still on 4 more years for Barrack Obama.
Uhhh...

1) Romney does not need 2 of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. He needs 1 - most likely Ohio. Obama needs 2 of those states, but not Romney. In fact, Obama probably needs all of those states.

2) The number of EV's needed to win the election is 269 for Romney, 270 for Obama - not 271 for either candidate (270 to win, 269 for a tie; the House breaks a tie).

As opposed to voting in a guy who has zero fiscal experience; said energy rates will triple if he has his way; was mentored by a white hating racist pastor; came from the corrupt Illinois political machine; has a shady past that he had sealed; got his start working for the corrupt ACORN; wrote a book about himself before anyone ever heard of him (narcissist in chief); had dealings with Tony Rezco (convicted of bribery and fraud and who used his political connections to demand kickbacks); who's most admired person is Frank Davis, an extreme communist; who has firm ties to the Black Liberation Moverment; who is a member of the MSPP (Marxist Socialist Political Party)?

Yea, a millionaire with off shore accounts and being a Mormon is so much worse.

I'm pretty confident of a Mitt win. He's within striking distance after Obama and the Dems threw everything at him. He'll get the convention and vp bump. Then it will come down to the debates and campaigning. I think Mitt will surprise during the debates plus Obama's economy is crumbling so this all will equal a Mitt victory.

Yeah - but President Obama could claim that he actually created one job...

It could even be a "shovel ready" one.

All are nonsensical talking points that are a conglomoration of the paranoid drippings of morons.

WHy not talk about something factual, like his record in office?

President Mitt Romney will take office in Jan.

President of the LDS church, perhaps.
