There is so much silly about Obama’s new attack ad on Mitt Romney above — I’ll post about Obama subsidizing overseas manufacturing later — but the attack on Romney’s Swiss bank account is the dumbest part.
And, frankly, Obama isn’t the type of guy I would expect to make a big deal about Swiss banks.
Consider that Obama appointed as IRS Chief Counsel William J. Wilkins, a former lobbyist for the Swiss Bankers Association (despite Obama’s claims that he has “excluded lobbyists from policy making jobs”). Also, Obama’s No. 2 White House aide, Mona Sutphen, has cashed out to Swiss Bank UBS.
