Bush Visits Romney's Money in the Cayman Islands

Updated on November 2, 2012

Bush touts virtues of hiding money in the Cayman Islands

I think you can tell a lot about a person's character when you see what they do with their free time. Some sit around a watch football, some do yard work, some volunteer for charity, some play sports, some raise their kids.

There is a big range of activities that former presidents participate in. President George Bush Sr jumps out of airplanes. President Carter builds homes for Habitat for Humanity, wins Nobel Peace prices and tries to solve world problems with his Carter Center which engages in conflict mediation.

President Bill Clinton runs his Clinton Foundation charity and campaigns for President Obama besides being the spouse of the Secretary of State.

Meanwhile President George W. Bush has be virtually in hiding during the past four years until recently when his emerges out of his hidden undisclosed location to, wait for it, be the keynote speaker in a conference for uber-wealthy in Cayman Islands on the virtues of offshore money hiding.

No doubt if Mitt Romney weren't busy running for president, he would probably be on the speaker list or at least in the audience.

      Well, at least Bush has his priorities straight. Pocket a bit of coin four days before the election. Nothing wrong with that eh, SassySue1963 ?

      Perhaps he will be non-partisan and do some island hopping so he can visit all the money the Democrats in Congress have off shore as well. (Of course, he can visit Richard Blumenthal's money right there in the Cayman Islands. Not to mention some of the President's pension money as well. Come to think of it, where ARE Senator Reid's tax returns? How did he manage to make all that money while in public service? Hmmm...that would be interesting to see now wouldn't it?

      " The Romney campaign says the Obama Illinois Pension fund has numerous private equity investments, including one domiciled in the Cayman Islands, the Advent International Group VI-A.

      An independent search for this fund turned up this filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an investment opportunity by this fund. It lists the Advent International GPE VI Limited Partnership as being organized in the Cayman Islands."

      Here is the news report:

      GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) - Organizers of an investment conference in the Cayman Islands say they have been forbidden from disclosing any details about a speech by former President George W. Bush in the offshore financial haven.

      A spokesman for the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit says the speech is totally closed to all journalists. Spokesman Dan Kneipp says he is not even permitted to discuss the subject of Bush's speech scheduled for Thursday evening at the Ritz-Carlton on Grand Cayman island.

      He says the restrictions were imposed by the former president's staff.

      Sponsors of the two-day summit include KPMG, a company that provides tax advisory services, and Deutsche Bank. It costs $4,000 to attend and other speakers include billionaire Richard Branson.

I know Sir Richard has been working on a private space travel, so maybe they're planning on moving off shore accounts off the planet...Thanks for sharing, very interesting read and very well written.(love the last photo:))

      After the election Mitt will have plenty of time to go to the Caymans and check on his money.
