Swiss bank accounts are bad unless they’re funding Obama

Font Size:

Joe Biden, April 2012:

“And Governor Romney calls the president out of touch… Out of touch. Hey, how many of y’all have a Swiss bank account?” [laughter]

So Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden is on the record: If you have money in a Swiss bank account, you’re out of touch.

George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Barack Obama re-election campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash.

The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events Aug. 27 in Geneva, Switzerland. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the run-up to the 2008 general election.
