Obama is holding fundraisers in Switzerland, Sweden, Paris, and communist China. The donations require the donor swear s/he is a U.S. citizen. Still, Obama’s feigned indignation over the Romney family’s bank accounts abroad, which are perfectly legal, takes on new meaning for me now.
I still don’t understand how Mitt Romney’s possible use of legal exceptions in the tax law is a problem. I can’t imagine who in the U.S. fills out their tax forms and says, I am entitled to take off this deduction or use that loophole, but I would rather not because I want the government to get it. But that’s me.
Lefty Loon George Clooney will hold fundraisers in France and Switzerland in August [Human Events] (How is it the rich in France have money now that they are taxed 78%? Could it be that they have accounts abroad?)
For his part, Mitt Romney is holding fundraisers in London and Jerusalem according to Global Research. Donors to Romney’s campaign must show a U.S. passport.

The following is from the Obama * Biden campaign website:
The first $5,000 of a contribution to OVF 2012 will be allocated to Obama for America (with the first $2,500 designated for the primary election, and the next $2,500 for the general election). The next $30,800 of a contribution will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Any additional amounts from a contributor will be divided among the State Democratic Party Committees as follows, up to $10,000 per committee and subject to the biennial aggregate limits: FL (17%); OH (16%); PA (13); CO (11%); NC (11%); VA (11%); NV (6%); WI (6%); IA (5%); and NH (4%). A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions will be used in connection with a Federal election. Contributions to OVF 2012 may be spent on any activities of the participant committees as each committee determines in its sole discretion and will not be earmarked for any particular candidate.
