O’MALLEY: Romney Unpatriotic for Using Swiss Bank Account

‘He bet against America when he put his money in Swiss bank accounts and tax havens’

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Maryland Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley -- a rumored 2016 Democratic presidential contender -- repeatedly inveighed against Mitt Romney’s Swiss bank account, sometimes calling it a “bet against America” [Note: I counted; he raised “Swiss bank accounts” 10 times in this interview]: “The alternative in this case is Governor Mitt Romney, who had the 47th worst job creation rate as governor and also has a -- a penchant, a talent for offshoring American jobs, sending them overseas, and also maintaining offshore bank accounts in Bermuda, Swiss bank accounts. And so the question he'll have to answer, Terry, is what is his alternative? I've never known of a Swiss bank account to build an American bridge, a Swiss bank account to create American jobs, or Swiss bank accounts to rebuild the levees to protect the people of New Orleans. That's not an economic strategy for moving our country forward.”
