Swiss Francs And Change

By on 7.9.12 | 9:05AM

So, the gravest threat facing our country is… Mitt Romney's Swiss bank account? Is that really what this election is going to be about -- Swiss francs and change?

Swiss Francs And Change
   By Asher Embry

We watched the Sunday shows aghast.
(And was it David Gregory's last?)
Of course, we really weren't surprised
That Mitt's Swiss bank monopolized.
With all our monstrous problems, that's
The talking point from Democrats!

Our jobless rate's still through the roof.
We watch as Keystone jobs go poof;
The GDP's anemic growth;
Ballooning debt and spending, both
Are threatening prosperity
And weakening security.
If we let O-Care take effect
Our splendid health care will be wrecked.
O's Dream Act fails? No need to pause;
He simply won't enforce the laws.

For sure, these crucial issues must
Have been the things the shows discussed?

Why, no. The non-Fox press again
Ignored the weighty substance, then
It followed Axe's lead to pounce
On Romney's overseas accounts.

O's only hope is to distract.
So, it's a sad, depressing fact
That this election, Mitt might lose
'Cause O convinced us not to choose
A man whose sole "vice," let's be frank,
Is money in a Swiss-based bank.
