Clinton Fatigue on the Rise
HUMAN EVENTS ^ | 10-29-2006 | Amanda B. Carpenter

Posted on 10/29/2006 10:45:32 PM PST by george76

This year alone Mr. Clinton has raised $7.3 billion for his various social causes. Mrs. Clinton’s Senate re-election campaign has cashed in more than $49 million.

Now, some of their friends say they are starting to feel “Clintoned out.”

The New York Times spoke with one of their donors, who would not be named, who said he was bowing out of extravagant fundraising events hosted by the Clintons this weekend because he was “Clintoned out.”

The source said their financial solicitations were ''absolutely endless.''

The Clintons show no signs of easing up...

Although Bill’s birthday was August 19th, weekend events were billed as a 3-day celebration of his 60th birthday.

In reality, the events were scheduled much closer to Hillary’s 59th on October 26th. Her milestone was only marked with a Thursday evening dinner reception. Tickets to celebrate her 59th were sold for $1,000 each.

Another anonymous donor told the New York Observer he was getting too much financial pressure from the Clintons.

He said, "I'm on Clinton overload. I'm not really wanting to do this. I've been tight with the Clintons for many years, but I'm beginning to feel used."

Money raised from Hillary’s reception Thursday went to her Senate campaign, while funds from weekend events went to Bill’s foundation...

Well, it is THEIR money, and who is to tell them which way to blow it? But I long ago learned the basic phrase "not a cent", and liberally use it on all those who attempt to mooch off me. Hopefully they learn the same words.

I wonder how much of the Clinton's creative financing skills will be applied to intermixing those funds?

Even white mice learn.

Every dollar these morons throw at Bubba is one dollar that does not end up in the war chest of the DNC. It is amazing to me that we are a week out of an election, and Bubba is sucking down all the Democrat money for some global boondoggle, leaving all the Democrat candidates high-and-dry.

Sometimes I gotta wonder if this guy isn't some kind of Republican deep-cover plant.

It's no surprise. The Clintons have been sucking the funds from the Dem party forever.

As the funding goes so does the party. Republicans have raised more than Democrats. While Sir Hilary has huge political war chest she has been reticent to "share" the spoils with those candidates in need.

Reminds me of, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"

A slogan popularized by Karl Marx

It is no exageration to say Hillary is a socialist and her sentiment an obscenity that could only be put forward by someone who never held an honest job in her life.

I've had Clinton fatigue since 1992. I wish those narcissistic pigs would just go away. Still, I find myself wondering how these people can consider themselves as representatives of the common people.

Can you say 'slush fund'

BUBBA'S BIRTHDAY BASH A BUST?
HOW DID THE POST MISS THE STORY... OR DID THEY?

The clintons had better ease up on the outstretched palm bit.
At their age there is the very real danger of the joints locking up,
putting them in a permanent state of beggary.
Oh wait. They already are.

What many socialists and democrats never learn is that the cost isn't merely on the frustration of the donors. More significantly they are feeding a habit of an elite which is insatiable. Even after they burn out those most readily able to support their habit, they will next turn to even more degenerate methods to fraudulantly gain more power.

Their lust is insatiable. The earlier they face the addiction the less painful the situation will be for those within their ever-expanding sphere of influence.

Well if they're getting tired, all they have to do is sign over all their assets to the Clintons and then they'll leave them alone.

I think that hate the common people ( us ).

They just want to use and steal from us for their own personal enjoyment.

The Clintoons may "say" that they feel our pain, but in reality never.

Bubba is the DNC. Howard Dean will not make it to Jan 1, 2007. Emiliy's List, NARAL, ACT, Moveon will all come under one umbrella starting next year and it will be overseen by Bill Clinton and his cronies.

One day, all these Clinton toadies will wake up and realize that the Marxists have taken over the asylum. These toadies will realize that they work for Bubba. Just like the mob.
