These folks are famously neutral, but when it comes to Obama’s vulgar, bottom of the barrel campaign, even they’re offended.
Switzerland hit back Tuesday at a US presidential election campaign video that portrays the country as a tax haven.
In the video, a character named Miss Swiss Bank Account describes the Republican candidate Mitt Romney as a “boss millionaire with accounts everywhere”, the ATS news agency reported.
The film gives “the impression that having a bank account in Switzerland is dubious in itself and its only aim is to hide money from the tax authorities,” Switzerland’s Federal Department for Foreign Affairs (DFAE) said.
Switzerland’s Washington embassy reportedly expressed its unhappiness at the clip to the Obama team, ATS said.
Hopefully we can regain our status in the world once this national embarrassment leaves office.
