Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: Bill and I Aren't 'Truly Well Off'
Posted on 06/22/2014 1:24:43 PM PDT by kingattax
If the recent firestorm over Hillary Clinton's claims of poverty upon leaving the White House with huge debt was meant to send the former First lady a message, clearly she didn't get it.
Seemingly unwilling to let go of the 'I'm one of the little people' meme for what would be a populist positioning as a White House candidate in 2016, today in The Guardian, she's all but crying poor, again.

The Clintons are overflowing with greed. 100 million isn’t enough for them.
How many millions will it take Hill, until you think you are well off, and what makes you think you deserve to be “well off” and BFD you have enough for yourselves and you are just jealous that your daughter is richer than you
TRANSLATION: “We’re only 0.1%-ers.”
I sure as heck wish I was as dead broke as her.
This shows truly out of touch she is. With their millions they are not well off? Tell that to folks who are having trouble finding jobs. Tell that to people who are facing soaring food costs. Tell that to people who....
Ethically speaking, no.
“The Clintons are overflowing with greed. 100 million isnt enough for them.”
Well to be fair, 100 million doesn’t go as far as it used to!
She certainly has the Democrat party meme down pat.
Lie, lie some more, make up the biggest whopper possible, then lie some more and if that doesn’t work make up more lies.
At this point what difference does it make.
She is a shameless, Godless person which makes her a perfect Democrat.
Well off the rails, well off the wagon, what difference does it make.
I agree. One fill up at the pumps and a trip to McDonalds and you’re broke again.
Hey, I agree. since people with $111 million aren’t well off we should stop taxing anybody who makes that or below. Since nearly 100% of the people who have more than $111 million are Democrats, let them pay for everything.
That’s because the Clinton’s don’t think of themselves as
‘regular’ American’s. They compare themselves against the ‘Old Money’ American’s of the Robber Baron Class and their descendents.
Shouldn't that be "another burst of cackling laughter"?
Does she really think people believe that junk? I have come to the conclusion that all dems lie even if the truth is staring them in the face. Are they that stuck on stupid? People are having to decide which bills to pay and if they have money to buy food or medicine each month and she comes out with this nonsense. People vote for these characters and I will never understand that mentality.
I guess we need to elect her President then so that her and Bill can pay the rent and put food on the table. They are paupers dressed in rags, you know.
I think this is being misinterpreted by the author.
She is not saying she isn't truly well off, she is saying, accurately or not, that unlike other people in the "truly well-off" category, they pay ordinary income tax. Which I guess means they haven't made most of their money off capital gains.
The Hillary Clinton Fund for Broke Politicians
Be sure to post this on all Hillary threads plus on Twitter and FB.
Unfortunately, by '16, this tune will have changed and nobody will remember this BS was ever said.
New time...New Lies.
Hillary truly is well off. She’s well off her rocker.
Argh, can’t someone shut this imbecile up? A normal, mentally healthy person would be embarrassed to say this crap.
Bill Clinton: “It wasn’t ‘rape-rape’.”
IIRC, she got an $8M book advance when her hubby's final term was about to expire. Managed to get it into the year 2000, and not 2001, as her hubby's tax rates for the rest of us were set to skyrocket again...
Right. I feel truly sorry for them that they’ve not achieved being billionaires yet ... but soon.
Pi$$ on all the Klitoons, WHAAA, Snivel, Boo Hoo !!
Here's a calculation for you. In 2008, it was disclosed that the Clintons had made $109m since leaving the White House (mostly speaking fees, consulting fees, and book royalties). How much would that weigh?
Well, $109m is 10,900 standard bank bundles (100 $100 bills). A $100 bill weighs slightly less than a gram. So, throw in the bundle wrapper and say each bundle is 100 grams (paper wrapper, not the foil former Congressman William Jefferson, D-LA, used). That means the Clintons' fortune weighs 1,090,000 grams, or about 2,403 pounds. A long ton of money!
That was six years ago. They must be worth considerably more by now.
No, they are extremely well off with blood money.
I just want to barf any time I hear a politician, especially a silver spoon in mouth Democrat, talk about "hard work." Most of these people never worked a day in their lives, especially the Clintons and the current occupier of the WH. She's a connected, scheming, conniving, communist bitch and it's all of her crony connections as First Lady that poured money all over her.
These days she gets paid $200,000 (not including expenses such as air travel and hotels) per speech these days to deliver something written by her lackeys.
"Hard Work" -- Bah!!
It *does* take hard work to defend a child rapist.
You’re right. Keeping your lies straight, maintaining a straight face, and extreme contortions are very challenging.
Romney paid 3 million in income tax. I guess he isn’t “well off” either.
Even she couldn't say it with a straight face.
well as me pore ole maw used to say, with money no matter how much you get it’s never enough
“aren’t truly well off”...
Her soul is headed for a long stay in Hell.
Post your 1040 and related forms, schedules and documentation for the last 10 years to your web site and let the
public (sorry), your subjects decide for themselves.
If you were truly the smartest woman in the world, you would have included notarized copies of all this in your book.
Hillary seems to be suffering from a strange combination of delusions of grandeur and delusions of poverty.
But whatever her mental state is, Hillary has written a book that is breaking all records in the Amazon.com Five-Star *****(extremely approves) vs. One-Star *(extremely disapproves) categories.
No major autobiography has received so few Five-Star ratings as Hillary’s, currently at 220. In contrast, George Bush’s autobiography has received 1,018; Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography, 344; and Adolph Hitler’s ‘’Mein Kampf,’’ 248.
But the One-Star negative ratings for Hillary’s recent opus beggar all description, both in terms of numbers and the disgustedness of the reviewers. 599 negative One-Star reviews for a single book must be an Amazon first. Bush only got 66 such reviews; Elizabeth Warren, 28; and the Leader of the Third Reich, a measly 74.
Simon and Shuster made a huge mistake by publishing Hillary’s bomb. Will the Democrats make another huge mistake by nominating Hillary for president in 2016? Simon and Shuster will survive, but the Democratic party probably won’t if it anoints Hillary to lead its ticket in 2016.
The KKKlinton’s aren’t considered rich but people who make $250K a year are rich.
Money stolen from the American people
I thought she meant their marriage.
