Romney, Just Your Average Joe Who Has Millions of Dollars in Offshore Bank Accounts

How is this defensible?
Although it is not apparent on his financial disclosure form, Mitt Romney has millions of dollars of his personal wealth in investment funds set up in the Cayman Islands, a notorious Caribbean tax haven.
And did he not think that this was all not going to come out and that people would look askance at it?

Or is this just more of the attitude of a man who thinks that $375,000 is "not a lot of money"? A man who can casually afford to wager ten grand on a bullshit bet? But hell, ten grand is pocket-lint level cash for the Mittster.

Awe, that's just spendin' money for when he's vacationing during those long Massachusetts winters. Nothin' like a Caribbean vacation in the middle of a Massachusetts winter, if you're made out of money like Mittens...

Watch how the Caymans money gets justified: "he was just keeping the commie gubmint from stealing what was his and giving it away to THOSE SHIFTLESS FOOD STAMP recipients". Big win for Upper Class Twit, er, Mitt.
