Democrat Attack Poodle Debbie Blabbermouth-Schultz Invested in Swiss Banks and Foreign Drug Companies

Posted by on Jul 10, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Amazingly this idiot has been leading the charge against Mitt Romney and his supposed secret investments and wondering where his non-required tax forms are.


Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past.

“Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss bank account and secretive investments like that?” the DNC chair, a chief surrogate for President Obama’s reelection team, said on Fox News Sunday two days ago. “Just something, a thought, that I’d like to leave folks with.”

It’s been a consistent theme of Obama’s reelection strategy: Attack Romney for foreign investments he held, especially in Swiss bank accounts, “to try to promote his wealthy, out-of-touch businessman persona.”

But disclosure forms reveal that in 2010, Wasserman Schultz invested between $1,001-$15,000 in a 401k retirement fund run by Davis Financial Fund. As the fund discloses, it is invested in the Julius Baer Group Ltd. and the State Bank of India GDR Ltd., as well as other financial, insurance, bank institutions.

Nothing illegal, mind you, but considering the dogpile on Romney and anything investment or business overseas, the hypocrisy is delicious. Still, don’t expect the Attack Poodle to let go of this particular chew toy any time soon

The hypocrisy, though, is clear: The Democrats, as well as President Obama, hope to paint Romney as an out of touch man for holding money in overseas bank accounts, when in reality their own chairman, Wasserman Schultz, had overseas investments.

    What’s she gonna do for an encore? Dig up Steve Jobs? Oh I forgot; he wasn’t secretive about it. He told the dear leader to his face that he was moving Apple’s money overseas.

    Owning shares in a mutual fund that invests in a bank does not in any way compare to hiding investments in said bank.

    Really, you fucking rubes should just go away. You serve no purpose.

    Is yours the only straight face while writing this article? Trying to make an equivalent for what Debbie Wasserman Schultz puts into her IRA, (which, BTW, equals what I put in my IRA) with the $millions of dollars Mitt RMoney puts into his Swiss accounts is breathtakingly disingenuous. I, like Ms. Schultz, am putting away money into a retirement fund.

    Romney — a billionaire who made his money profiting off of gutting American companies and outsourcing American jobs was using his Swiss bank accounts as a tax shelter. Hiding his taxable income. Cheating the government. Using every loophole possible.

    How is DWS, or I, the same as Mitt Romney? We’re not. You’re going to have to dig deeper if you want to use this as a defense for that poor, out-of-touch, dog torturing robotic pretty boy your corporations have propped up as their candidate.

    love the exquisite squealing from Charles and “Fe”. Squeal piggies! At least Mitt discloses his investments and tax returns. Swollen with outrage, our Debbie Cow is unwilling

  5. Cole Sear on 10/10/12 at 9:51 pm

    Frank G clearly knows nothing about investments. In other words, more fact-free idiocy from the desperate fascist wing of the once-sane Republican party.

    To prove his complete fucking stupidity, Frank claims the congresswoman doesn’t disclose her finances in a comment thread related to an article that specifically drew from information in her disclosures.

    So much for the new civility your dear leader called for asshole.

    So you care about tax fairness genius? Explain turbotax timmy. And how “The Geithner” defense can’t be used by anyone else. Or perhaps you can explain John Kerry and his $7 million dollar New Zealand built yacht, the SS deadbeat. The one he tried hiding in Rhode island. Or Charlie Rangel. You really think that your cast of crooks is suddenly going to pass as avenging tax angels?

  7. Cole Sear on 11/11/12 at 12:13 am

    Fuck civility.

    The author of this blog, and the author of the original article, wrote astonishingly stupid things. When you fucking hayseeds can accurately describe a mutual fund, get back to me.

    Since that’s never going to happen, I suggest you all shut up and go the fuck away. People with IQs in the 70s have no place in the marketplace of ideas.

  8. Dentman333 on 11/11/12 at 8:46 am

    So the Debbie Defenders make the argument about the amount of the deposit? Reminds me of the old “at what price are you no longer a whore?” theory.

    Fuck civility

    Hey, that’s what your dear leader said. You and the rest of the leftist pricks want the peasants to be concerned about how Romney handles his money. Instead of how the incumbent, your dear leader, spends OURS. Take a hike you jerk. The lies aren’t working. Your manufactured messiah is running for re-election. This isn’t a re-run of 2008. Deal with it princess.

    Why haven’t we seen a working budget in three years?? Why are we supposed to worry about swiss bank accounts instead of your dear leader’s last budget not getting a single Democrat vote???

    Try selling the class warfare somewhere else.

  10. Westie on 11/11/12 at 9:47 am

    Amazing and uncanny how some of the commenter’s sound exactly like Debbie Washerwoman Schultz.

  11. theBuckWheat on 11/11/12 at 9:54 am

    When I sold a business, the gain became my retirement nest egg. Several very well respected financial consultants had long recommended that it was just prudent to put a portion of your financial assets in an investment account based in another country to mitigate what they called “political risk”.

    We are seeing political risk at this very moment in Argentina where the government has seized the retirement accounts of citizens and is attempting to impose currency controls while it steals their wealth with inflation. We have already had serious proposals in Congress for the US government to seize 401k accounts and give retirees an interest-bearing chit in return.

    I hold about 10% of my assets in an account at but not to avoid taxes. I have it to trade and hold stocks that are not easy to do from a regular US account. Indeed, having such an account and properly reporting it as the law requires probably is ‘audit bait’. But it is just disingenuous for politicians to claim having such accounts is just to avoid taxes. Americans are taxed on their income no matter where it comes from.

    Besides, Swiss savings accounts are paying about 0.25% interest, meaning that for $1 million there would be a whopping $2,500 in interest income and maybe $500 in taxes. Who in their right mind would risk tax evasion charges for the sake of saving $500 especially when the Swiss government withholds 30% of interest from your payment which you can reclaim when you file your US taxes.

    There are also legitimate and commonly used techniques for protecting your assets from seizure when they are in a non-US jurisdiction. Many athletes, entertainers and physicians use non-US accounts for this lawful purpose.

    Complaints about Swiss and non-US accounts is just shameful bashing of a citizens right to put their own AFTER-TAX money in any account they please. The Left is all about rights until someone wants to exercise theirs in a way the Left doesn’t approve of.

    Clearly the author of this blog and all of the Republican rubes who comment here have no clue what a mutual fund is and how it differs from other investments.

    As someone else noted, you fucking morons have no place in the marketplace of ideas. Truly, you are useless. It raises the question of why you even bother to go on living. If I were such a complete fucking loser, I wouldn’t have the will to live. It explains your blind anger, though, and why you keep on yelling when you have no fucking clue what you are even yelling about.

    God help us all.

  13. Blue Hen on 11/11/12 at 2:05 pm

    Charles Giacometti

    Something seems to be bothering you. What is it? That you care more about Romney and his money than what the dear leader is doing with ours? Might it be because Pelosi directly invested in foreign interests? Could that be twisting the panties?

    Might the cause be that you want to hold against Romney anything and everything that Bain did/didn’t/might have/ want people to think they did, and yet……when darlin’ debbie spouts off, her mutual fund is the black hole of Calcutta?

    Hmmmm. Maybe we need to take some cleansing breaths and change the topic.

    Here goes: Why is it that Boooooooosh wouldn’t give a loan to Solyandra and your dear leader did, and all that tax money is now down a rat hole?

    You may pick up your crayon and begin.

    Charles said without a trace of irony.

    Progs and their death-fantasies for their “useless” opponents, they never change.

    Mao’s Great Leap Forward could never happen here, though. Never.

    The louder they yell the guiltier they are.. She’ll go by the way of the Weiner..just hope it’s soon.

  16. Charles Giacometti on 12/12/12 at 9:42 am

    Actually, we don’t need to kill any of you. The Red States have by far the worst health outcomes and standard of living. Several of them are the fucking third world, and the sooner we get you off the public tit, the faster you fucking rubes will die off.

    Plus you worship guns, and you drink a lot. Please spend a lot of time cleaning those guns and blowing your fucking brains out.

    Really, the world will be a much better place.

    Note well that none of you have explained a mutual fund yet. None of you own any. You are all minimum-wage fucking losers or on the dole, and the perfect useless idiots for your overlords. Fucking lemmings. (Sorry, you will need to look “lemmings” up. I suggest The Google.”)

  17. Blue Hen on 12/12/12 at 11:46 am

    Methinks chuck didn’t hear about the “uniter, not a divider” part of the dear leader’s speech.

    Bad health outcomes? Try selling blue state health to the seven year old shot on the sidewalk in Chicago. Or the kids in the crossfire from drugdealers multi-tasking by taking their kids to school AND “engaging their competitition in the marketplace” in Philadelphia. How many kids were shot? Besides the crossing guard that was killed?

    There’s a record number of people “on the dole”. Your dear leader brags about it. The government is pushing food stamps in two languages. Does Attack watch know that you’re a traitor to the Revolution?

    And since when are we supposed to be looking down our noses at the Third World? We’re all on one big Blue Marble; show some brotherhood and compassion dickhead.

    I am curious as to how you knew that I drink a lot. That’s scary good. The rest of it resembles a spastic bowel movement, but credit where credit is due.

    Any answer on Solyandra yet princess?

  18. Charles Giacometti on 12/12/12 at 1:58 pm

    Blue Hen, there are these things called “statistics” and something called “The Google.” Look up life expectancy, teen pregnancy rate, etc., etc., on a state-by-state basis, and get back to me. Every single state at the bottom of the barrel is a red state. Every single state at the top of the barrel is a blue state.

    Also, The Google will show you that every single Red State gets many more federal dollars than it gives, and every single blue state, yup, is the opposite. We support you fucking rubes, so I am all for gutting the federal government and letting you fucking hayseeds die off. Even better, I am all for us seceding and letting you descend completely into the third world.

    Of course, none of this matters to any of you. None of you are literate enough or numerate enough to even know what any of this means.

  19. Blue Hen on 12/12/12 at 2:54 pm

    chuck, there are these things called “topics”. And spreading the love by claiming that people in states that don’t vote the way you want them to need to die wasn’t the topic of this thread.

    It would be interesting to know how any “statistic” yields the conclusion of “worshipping guns”. That usually falls more within the realm of pulling it outta your ass more than Google.

    Statistically and Googlally speaking, why should we give one flying fuck what and where Romney has his money, and not pay the slightest attention to how Obama is spending ours? The only reason we here in the areas of the United States (that you hate) can discern is that you can’t explain why so much money has been burned for so little gained. Statisically speaking of course. Because the unemployment rate sucks, the labor participation rate sucks, consumer AND business confidence blows and our #1 trading partner now hates us.

    Google it.

  20. Charles Giacometti on 12/12/12 at 3:47 pm

    In other words, Blue, your IQ is south of 70, you have no ability to use logic, and you are both illiterate and innumerate.

    This is what happens when you are educated in the third world.

    Good luck in the rest of your pathetic fucking life.

  21. Blue Hen on 12/12/12 at 4:34 pm

    In other words, for a guy that hates fly over country, you have a learning curve as flat as Nebraska. Which your dear leader won’t win. Hurry on back to your fan boy meeting you lying prick.

    Romney earns and saves his money. Your dear leader spends ours. And you’re okay with that.
