Chelsea Clintonís wealth canít buy her class
NY Post ^ | 6-29-14 | Andrea Peyser

Posted on 06/30/2014 3:21:57 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Chelsea Clinton, the former and potential future first daughter, has stiff competition for the title of Most Tactless Human. Greedy reality-TV creature Kim Kardashian is a contender. Chelsea’s mom, the once “dead broke” Hillary Rodham Clinton, might rank even higher on the scale of bad taste.

Chelsea, 34, has jabbered like an overeducated trailer-park habitué about her family’s No. 1 obsession — money.

The millionairess, pregnant with her and millionaire hedge-funder hubby Marc Mezvinsky’s first child, told Britain’s Telegraph newspaper this month that she’s made a strenuous effort to care about cash. But she just couldn’t bother with the green stuff.

“I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents. I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,” Chelsea said. That wasn’t the most infuriating part.

“I will just always work harder [than anybody else] and hopefully perform better,” she said. Didn’t anyone teach Chelsea that it’s bad manners to show off?

The only people who don’t care about money are those who have never earned any and still have far more than they need.

Chelsea's attempt at wearing "high fashion" bombed bigtime.
Who told her she has the figure for skin-tight leather and high-heeled pumps?

She could have practiced a high fashion pose.
Here, she looks like she has to go to the bathroom.

I'd at least suspend judgment and give the benefit of the doubt, by calling her a trailer park habituée.

habituée, noun, from the French, meaning trash, slut, vermin

Not true.
I have never cared about money and have lived paycheck to paycheck on PB&J sandwiches because it’s all I could afford.

Making a target out of Chelsea Clinton simply because her mother is a Sleastack shows that some conservatives have sunk to liberal standards. She and her unborn child have not hurt anyone.

Wealth can’t buy class, period. Witness Donald Trump.

“I will just always work harder [than anybody else] and hopefully perform better,”

Just exactly what kind of work do you do, Chelsea? What are you qualified to do?

Getting a cut from the Clinton money laundering operation Foundation is not really considered a job.

Let's remind everyone that Chelsea's father-in-law is a convicted felon. Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky (/mɛzˈvɪnski/; born January 17, 1937) is a former congressman. A Democrat, he represented Iowa's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977. Mezvinsky grew up in Ames, Iowa and played high school football there. He received his law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1965. After being elected to the Iowa Legislature in 1968, he lost a race for Congress in 1970, then won in 1972. He made several unsuccessful Senate attempts in the 1980s. In 2001, he was convicted of several dozen charges of fraud, and served five years in federal prison.[4] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Mezvinsky

I might agree with you, if she lived quietly and kept to herself. She has accepted more money that 99% of all Americans will ever see to inject herself into the public spotlight, and shown herself to be a superficial, braindead, self absorbed, insensitive twit, lacking any trace of self awareness, as Ms. Peyser so ably illustrates. The knowledge that whatever fame she has is the reflection of her parents notoriety should cause her a least a moment of introspection .

Hillary Clinton reveals what it’s like to be poor in America

The Peoples Cube| 6/9/14 | Opiate of the People / FR Posted 6/28 by laotzu

Hillary Clinton has served America for decades; in January 1993, she made history as she became the country’s first co-president along with her husband, Bill. After her tour in the White House ended, she answered the call from her adopted state of New York and voluntarily gave up a lucrative career trading cattle futures to act as one of only two US senators from that state.

In 2008, after tirelessly devoting herself to helping Barack Obama become America’s best president, she looked forward to retiring to a quiet life in a small cottage somewhere. Once again her country called, pleading with her to act as Secretary of State because President Obama, who would’ve been better than anybody at the job, was simply too busy to do it himself.

After four extremely successful years in the post, Ms. Clinton was on duty at 3 AM in the White House War Room when a call came in, informing her the extreme Tea Party wing of the Libyan Republican Party attacked the U.S. embassy in Benghazi. The date was Sept 11, 2012.

She immediately ordered the U.S. military to parachute her into the compound so she could take command. The Joint Chiefs balked, saying that the embassy was seven thousand miles away and by the time she got there, the attack would be over. “What difference does it make?” she said softly, “Get me there now!” The Chiefs relented. But, as they feared, by the time she arrived it was too late; president Obama’s poll numbers were already starting to fall.

Her injuries from Benghazi and her 1996 arrival under sniper fire in Bosnia still give her pain, but the physical scars are not what bother her the most. For, in spite of her decades of selfless service to America, decades in which she never forgot her fellow Americans, she recently revealed the great disappointment in her life: Americans had often forgotten about her. As she recently revealed to esteemed, accredited, impartial, state-approved TV journalist Diane Sawbucks: “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.”

Ms. Clinton went on to reveal the depths of the degradation her family was subjected to, being forced to make speeches for $200,000 a pop and pick up deposit bottles and cans out of the alleys behind expensive hotels (but mostly make speeches for $200,000 a pop) in order to make ends meet.

“It is shocking, simply shocking that America can cast aside its fallen heroes so readily,” said another nearly destitute Democrat senator, on his way to promote a documentary movie about the hold right wing billionaires have on the country.

“The Koch Brothers don’t care who they hurt!”

“The country wouldn’t treat wounded veterans so poorly”, said Senator Elizabeth Warren, herself so impoverished she was forced to accept a $525,000 advance for a new book in order to keep vichyssoise and caviar on the table. “But just because a leader is a civilian womyn lawyer, the patriarchy feels it’s OK to treat you like dirt!”
