Posted on 06/22/2014 9:56:10 AM PDT by kristinn
Hillary Clinton's multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won't be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they're not "truly well off."
"They don't see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we've done it through dint of hard work."

No amount of money can offset a poverty of the soul
LOL her and Webb’s kid bought a $10m Manhattan condo last year, right?
She probably discounts her vast wealth because she did nothing to earn it.
In all sincerity I do hope that her campaign does as well as her book.
Probably closer to or over a billion, if the truth be told.
Is it possible for a cow to tip itself?
I think we have the answer......
She discounts her vast wealth because, like all Leftists, she believes the rules only apply to other people.
HILLARY CLINTON NET WORTH
NET WORTH:$21.5 MILLION
BILL CLINTON NET WORTH
NET WORTH:$80 MILLION
COMBINED NET WORTH = $101 MILLION
“Americans” are stupid and can be easily bull****ted, right Hillary. After six years of the Kenyan, I tend to agree with you.
There is no such thing as cow tipping.
But with Her Cankleness The Flying Buttress, all things are possible.
Her new book is flying off the shelves. Right into the bargain bin.
Chutzpa has no end with this harridan.
You’ve defaced a perfectly good cow.
“Probably closer to or over a billion, if the truth be told.”
I personally believe it’s well over several billion.
Clinton had over 4 years for his buddy Marc Rich to play the oil futures market for him and no way of loosing because of the Oil for Food Program.
Well, she ain't. She & BillyJeff are filthy rich.
With emphasis on the filthy.
If they thought this would make her look good I think it might be a BIG backfire.
I'd have had a smidgen of respect for her if she had resigned.
The Youtube video was 0bama’s idea? So how does Hillary explain the Tweets from the Cairo embassy apologizing for the video 12+ hours before Benghazi was attacked?
They can spin this any way they want, but this harping on her/Bill’s wealth is not going to go over well with the cadres brought up on envy and redistribution.
It is well known that she has a Swiss account but it is forbidden to comment on it. That is where the Chinese dumped the payments for Bill’s gift of US military tech secrets.
Please send me your check book Hill and I will send you mine. Because I want to share your pain and help you feel better.
I’m starting to think this is the Achilles Heel if she runs....she can’t seem to come up with a credible position about being one of the 1%, and that ain’t good (for her...)
I wonder where the checks for $5000 each given to al gore by the Chinese military for the Clinton campaign at the Buddhist temple in Rowland heights ca went.
Gore later exclaimed he didn’t know what was in the envelopes.
Then why take on the burden of campaigning and winning the White House brass ring?
There's only one answer....POWER!!!
POWER is the one thing commies, socialists, liberals, marxists, fascists and greenies crave the most and will do anything to obtain...as history proves over and over again.
Yes, accruing even more wealth is an added stimulus, but wealth almost always follows power.
Billary combines all of the above "isms".....POWER is their driving impetus, to control other peoples' lives AND their deaths.....and to feel they are "changing history".
Both Clintons are long-time, power-hungry, obsessive psychos. If she's elected president, the White House will become the Bates Motel. The current occupant already has control over our lives and deaths through ObamaKare, ruinous economics, even the effect of alien immigration. And he's not yet even near the stage of being found mummified in a rocking chair in the Oval Office....obviously there's more to come from him.
So don't laugh at my postulations. We're already in the preamble to the dictatorship twilight zone, though the low-information zombies don't even know it. The Clintons want to seal any escape hatches permanently if they are able to seize the keys to the kingdom.
How’s the new book doing, Broomhilda?
Maybe the envlopes held gift certs for massages.
Phone numbers for billy boy
She dint do any hard work.
Remember how the press and liberals laughed at Bush Sr. when he didn’t know about the auto checkout machine at the grocery store. They said he was “out of touch” with average Americans.
Hillary’s gaffe about being poor and not truly well off tops that by about 100,000,000 times.
Who at the Cairo embassy was apologizing? Wasn’t there actually a small protest or something that had to do with the video? Maybe Obama decided to blame the video because it turned out to be a convenient excuse.
Hillary’s story sounds suspicious however. Are we supposed to think she’s some sort of hero for protecting her fellow rats by knowingly lying to us ?
An empty soul. No matter how much she has, she still wants more and is envious of the people that have more. No wonder she’s always so cranky.
Who is in charge of embassies?
US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its we stand by our condemnation tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!
This morning's condemnation (issued before protest began) still stands. As does our condemnation of unjustified breach of the Embassy
US Embassy Cairo (@USEmbassyCairo) September 11, 2012
Wasnt there actually a small protest or something that had to do with the video?
There was a very large protest at the Cairo embassy where protesters actually breached the walls and the Marine guard was at the ready to start shooting.
The protests and attack in Cairo (or anywhere in the world) weren't about that stupid 'video' either.
Brian Lilley: The MSM is lying about the muslim riots
Interviews on the streets of Cairo. 'Video' had nothing to do with protests and attack.
Through dint of hard work.
And lots of good old-fashioned corruption, money laundering, extortion and theft.
Don’t forget, they donated their used underwear to charity.
And that is a gift that keeps on giving, as the DNA therein can solve a bunch of unsolved Arkansas sexual assault cases from the 1970s.
What a selfish, self-centered POS.
She dint do any hard work.
10 points to you for cracking me up on my birthday.
Who is in charge of embassies?
The Hillary Clinton Fund for Broke Politicians
Michael Moore, Al Gore and John Kerry pay the 'poor victim' card too... It's disgraceful - and insulting.
Senior administration official: The Cairo embassys statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement disgraceful

I thought the White House might decide to keep quiet on this and hope that the media doesnt press too hard tomorrow. And I think they would have, if not for the fact that Romneys surely ready to go nuclear on them for it and force the issue. Remember, thanks to a few openings created by Mitt (most notably forgetting to thank the troops in his convention speech), Obamas angling to frame himself as President Foreign Policy for the stretch run to election day. How would that play if hes suddenly being hammered tomorrow for Apology Tour 2012?
So heres the walkback. You know whos going to have a fun day on Wednesday? Jay Carney.
The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government, a senior administration official told POLITICO
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.
Heres the last tweet from Cairo embassy account, posted three hours ago as I write this:
Really looking forward to hearing Carney explain which part of the embassys earlier statement failed to represent the views of the U.S. government. I want to hear it in his own words; hopefully the press corps will make him elaborate. If the White House rejects the idea that criticizing religion constitutes an abuse of free speech, then good for them. But lets get it on the record, because we all know therell be more incidents of embassies stormed and people shot over insults to Islam quite possibly in Afghanistan and the tunes likely to change later as political circumstances demand.
That was interesting....THANKS!
I find out more on FR than on ANY other “news” organization.
One thing for sure - zero and the rats cared more about getting reelected than anything ...not because he cares for our country but because the devil needs more time for his fundamental transformation.
What the hell does this even mean “not truly well off”? I *think* she is saying that they don’t have Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos type wealth but I can’t really be sure. In other words that they haven’t looted all the money that the country has to offer, just some of it.
