Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton removes ‘dead broke’ from her repertoire
Posted on 06/10/2014 7:29:44 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday tried to clear up the fallout from a comment she made about her family being dead broke after leaving the White House in 2001 a remark that opened her up to charges of being out of touch with ordinary Americans.
Let me just clarify that I fully appreciate how hard life is for so many Americans today, the former secretary of state said on ABCs Good Morning America. She said she and husband Bill Clinton were obviously blessed but it was just a reality what we faced when he got out of the White House meant that we just had to keep working really hard. She said she recalled being about $12 million in debt. Watch here, at about 2:37:

I guess she figured out she spewed some spontaneous BS lie equivalent to her being named for Edmund Hillary, or when she had to “duck for cover” in Bosnia-wherever.....
Sometimes, even your leeches don’t believe you.
Overthehillary does not know what hard work is....
Okay everyone, let's all have a pity party! 1... 2... 3...
What exactly does ‘dead-broke’ mean in today’s language?
When I grew up in the 1970s...it meant you didn’t have enough money to buy steaks.....so you ate mostly chicken. When I was in the Air Force...dead-broke meant you got only really cheap beer the weekend before pay-day. Today? When I say I’m dead broke...it means I don’t have enough loot to buy Yankees tickets, but I can go to Florida for two weeks and watch them on cable TV.
They sold their plane and had to buy into an executive plane-sharing pool.
They had to switch from jamon iberico to pancetta.
Yeah, Hillary may have been dead broke upon leaving the White House, but those in Benghazi are just plain dead!
No PIAPS, being showered by Satan with power and wealth is not being blessed
They didn't leave the White House either dead broke or having to work really hard -- except maybe working really hard at cashing in their IOUs from their wheeling and dealing.
THANK YOU KELLY FILE Megyn ran a news clip of Hilly sing-songing "the cancer of inequality"....in a contrived sap-happy, chirpy voice, wearing a h-u-g-e phony grin.
Reminded me of the classic Willam Castle horror movie, "Mr Sardonicus," (whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing the coffin of his father's grave).
Hillary wears her perpetual 2016 game face.
Anyone remember the footage from the big post-departure rally at Andrews Air Force Base on inauguration day 2001? Where Bill went on about how “we aren’t going anywhere” ...?
It’s not like the Clintons actually wanted to escape the public limelight following their departure from the White House. Far from it ...
Let’s see: back in 1994 she was bragging about making $100,000 on a $1,000 investment in cattle futures thanks to some helpful investing tips. All Ms. Wizard had to do was start investing again, right?
“Poke Salad Hillary”
To us, “dead broke” is not being able to afford hamburger at almost $5/lb., so we eat grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. Ask some retirees you know how they are doing after scrimping and saving all their lives.
Nonsense. She’s just a victim of a right wing conspiracy. /sarc
Now we hear he got a hundred million dollars while his wife controlled the State Dept checkbook......monies that were meant for Haiti (the place where the Clintons spent their honeymoon).
BETTER ADD THIS IN, TOO News reports say the State Department announced it has "no idea" what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors..... a special management alert warned significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at State has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years....under Hillary's watch.
Becoming president has a pretty good monetary return. That poor boy from Hope, Ark, made over $200,000,000.00 (that we know of) as a public servant.
Lawyers Bill and Hillary have held no other jobs but public service---they didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---didn't even own a home. But they are experts at gaming the "public service" system for themselves. The Clintons conniving has enriched them. They are now worth more than $100 million dollars.....and counting.
How did they make the money? In several ways.
(1) Bill's calculated moves w/ his presidential pen and official policies profited numerous cronies and entities.....who are now being hit up for donations to the /three Clinton tax-exempt "foundations.....and to enrich Hillary.
(2) Bill's pardon pen was useful in pardoning diverse voting blocs which got Hillary elected to the US Senate as a prelude to her presidential ambitions.
(3) The Clintons game the system 24/7....their only goal in politics is to control the money.
“I was born a poor, black child.”
“I ain’t tahred...”. Plantation Hillary now starring in The Grapes of Wrath.
It’s weird. I distinctly remember their purchase of a very large expensive home just outside NYC at this exact time, and a slew of fluff pieces in the media touring the home and showing all their very nice home decorations.
Yep, we don’t have the luxury of making a speech to “earn” a quick $50,000 when we need it.
Oh yeah, her supporters will just “un hear” it.
IF hellery ever does become POTUS, she will have to vacate the office no later than January 20, 2020. Reason: Since Bill and Hill both said they were co-president, that means, that if I have it correct, the Constitution says that no one can hold the office of POTUS longer than ten years. Since she’s already held, or co-held, it eight years, here date of depature is stated above. Let’s all pray she never darkens the White House ever again.
She could have left it at “dead.”.......
There was an ethics question because she had been elected to the US Senate in Nov...but had not been sworn in.
She's a liar!! Nuf said.
No, I remember the marching bands, spectators, etc. being forced to wait for hours in the driving sleet because they couldn’t start the Bush Inaugural parade until the Clintons actually left town. Rude b*****ds.
I was there.
I remember when mac and cheese was the fill me up for a dime. Now it’s some big gourmet deal. People are sooooo stupid.
“Dead broke” people don’t buy their first ever home in Chappaqua for $1.7 Million.
just a reality what we faced when he got out of the White House meant that we just had to keep working really hard.
Screwing the American taxpayer and helping that liar Obama???
Ok, now that explains why they stole the china. /sarc
I guess it is kind of 'hard work' to come up with new lies, keep them straight (although if the Clintons don't keep their lies straight, the Media never calls them on it ... so maybe they don't have to work too hard on the 'keeping the lies straight' task), lie without batting an eye, stab people in the back...
Which could have been paid off with just the advance for BJ's autobiography. Hillary also received nearly $3 million of the eventual $8 million advance for her memoirs. Both of these payoffs were received in 2001, within 12 months after BJ left office.
On top of that, the Secret Service was paying enough "rent" for a "guard shack" on the grounds of the Clinton mansion in NY to make that mortgage payment every month.
99.9% of the people in the US would have loved to be in that position.
To me, “dead broke” meant no chicken, it meant rice, oatmeal, and sometimes corn meal, no meat, not milk, no eggs, no car, no resources.
Even when used casually by people temporarily broke, it meant borrowing money for gas, or cigarettes, or for a utility bill.
and adds , “Brain Dead”
Her $8 MILLION book deal was signed in Dec. 2000, just before they left office.
That should have covered “broke” through Spring of 2001....
There is no way the clintons honestly made over $100 million. They received the money selling out their country.
Hillary Clinton blamed Ambassador Stevens for being in Benghazi and she also blamed George Bush for the lack of security!
I aint tahred.... Plantation Hillary now starring in The Grapes of Wrath. ...................... How about “Tobacco Road”?
What did huma think of that?
I was a depression baby, I still remember, eggs and potatoes, and more eggs and potatoes. Breakfast meant hot oatmeal. The Boomers like Hillary had it made. I’m sure while in Arkansas, her “connections” gave her plenty eat. This woman is spending a fortune on her publicists and coaches. She knows a book is one sided and doesn’t have to respond to questions.
The Clintons paid $200,000 to rent this manse for 2 weeks of summer vacation last year
She’s come too faaaaarrrrrrr ....
well, they did lose the franchise to sell presidential pardons and nights in the Lincoln Bedroom
I believe when the U-Haul left the WH, Hugh Rodham may even have become homeless
So soon we forget - but unfortunately Hillary and her sexual predator political partner are still around to haunt us.
(btw pancetta is a form of bacon while prosciutto is form of dry ham like Jamon Iberico)
The Clinton motto is ‘just keep lying, baby!’
