Top Democrats have intensified calls for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to explain his offshore bank accounts.

Robert Gibbs, a senior campaign adviser to President Barack Obama, delivered the pithiest barb on CNN, saying: “This is a guy whose slogan is ‘believe in America’ when it should be ‘business in Bermuda.’” Over on “Fox News Sunday,” Democratic Party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said: “Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss bank account and secretive investments like that?” Obama campaign aides also lashed out to portray Romney as a “secretive” businessman who was hiding much of his money offshore to avoid the taxman. Romney’s wealth is estimated to be around $250 million. A Vanity Fair report focused onto Romney’s millions tucked away in Switzerland and in offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.
