Media schmucks raise specter of Romney's offshore assets, curiously miss Obama's offshore fundraisers and money-laundering website

You can see the meme bubbling up, plain as day. It starts with the likes of the ludicrous hack Taegan Goddard at the ill-named Political Wire, a more apt name for which would be DNC Wire. Goddard's article, entitled "Undisclosed Romney Investments Hint at Larger Wealth", suggests that the GOP candidate's investments may not wholly reside... in the U.S. Shocking news, to be sure.

And the propaganda continues with the useful idiots at the Associated Press, offering fealty to the Axelrod campaign with laughable work like "Assets offshore raise Romney wealth questions."

And, like the good little stooges they are, the crackpots at The Washington Post chip in with their contribution, creatively titled "Mystery Bermuda-based company and other undisclosed Romney assets hint at larger wealth."

[Romney's reports are] permitted by state and federal authorities overseeing Romney’s ethics filings, and he has never been cited for failing to disclose information about his money. But Romney’s limited disclosures deprive the public of an accurate depiction of his wealth and a clear understanding of how his assets are handled and taxed, according to experts in private equity, tax and campaign finance law.

Gee, you mean like a president who fails to reveal his Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard college transcripts; his thesis papers; his medical records; his law practice client list; his Illinois state senate schedule; etc. Gee, vintage media hacks, I would think those would be a lot bigger deal than Mitt Romney's legal investing strategies, no?

Other big stories that have -- coincidentally gone unnoticed by the DNC press release re-publishers -- include truly monumental scams, ripoffs and outright criminality on the part of the Axelrod administration:

• Speaking of offshore, anyone care to question why the Obama campaign is fundraising in Europe? I wonder how it's ensuring contributions are all from domestic sources?
• Or how about the curious case of the Obama campaign website, which has disabled all credit-card security checks? In what I'm sure is simply another coincidence, that permits above-the-limit contributions, structured contributions, foreign contributions and other plainly illegal donations.
• Or the huge money-laundering operation that allowed tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to flow to Obama campaign bundlers under the rubric of "green energy" (see: Solyndra, SunPower, Vehicle Production Group, SolarReserve, Fisker, Tesla Motors, Abound Solar, Ener1, Solar Trust, Solar One, Beacon Power, etc.)
• Or the fact that the UAW-controlled General Motors, which sends quite a lot of money into Democrat campaign coffers, is still on the hook for $35 billion to the American taxpayers

See, there is real vetting -- of the sort new media has to do -- and there's legacy media vetting, which insinuates wrongdoing for no reason other than to skew an election to a radical Leftist intent on bankrupting the country.

Okay, now's as good a time as any to ask, why is the hack site, Political Wire featured on Bad Blue? Business insider skews left, too - so I'm always surprised to see them there.

Good question. There's obviously a level of enemy G-2 we should be receiving, so PolWire, Politico, and a few others are included for that purpose. The real kook blogs, of course, are excluded.
