Just another of many examples of the hypocrisy so evidently on display in the Obama White House!
Do you remember how the Obama campaign tarred and feathered Mitt Romney over his Cayman Islands bank account? They ran ads attempting to raise suspicion that Romney had something to hide and that having an offshore account wasn't quite the American thing to do [video]. Obama's campaign surrogates and media accomplices spread the notion that Romney "bet against America." Apparently, that's OK but imagine the hell that would break loose if a Republican leader hinted that Obama was "un-American."
Well, if having an offshore account is such a bad thing then why did Obama nominate Jack Lew who also has a Cayman Islands bank account and while working for Citibank was in charge of quite a few Cayman Islands investments? Twice Obama referred to investments such as Lew's as the "biggest tax scam on record.”
And let's not forget that Lew also walked away from Citibank with nearly a million in salary and bonuses after the company received more than $45 billion in government bailouts. Obama demonized Wall Street fat cats who walked away with millions of taxpayer bailout money but not a peep about his pal Jack Lew.
The lesson here is that if you are a friend of Obama's you can "bet against America" using the "biggest tax scam on record" and walk off with hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars and that's somehow OK.
Just remember that next time Obama starts pointing the finger at millionaires and billionaires in another round of class warfare. Like so much of his fine rhetoric he really doesn't mean it if you have a "D" after your name!
