Posted on 06/22/2014 6:27:31 PM PDT by jimbo123
Hillary Clinton claims that despite the significant wealth she and Bill have amassed since leaving the White House, theyre not truly well off compared to the richest of Americans.
They don't see me as part of the problem," Clinton told The Guardian newspaper in response to a question about whether voters would see her as credible on the issue of income inequality, despite her vast personal wealth. 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.
The eyebrow-raising comment, made during an interview with the British paper that ran late Saturday, follows another bizarre remark Clinton made about being dead broke after leaving the White House and could further propel the image of her being out of touch with Main Street as she continues to weigh a 2016 presidential run.

Compared to Vince Foster, Amb. Stevens,
or any of the murdered and raped Americans in her path,
she is doing quite “well”.
Folks, lemme get this straight.
Hillary’s first campaign angle is “I’m not that rich?”
The Hillary Clinton Fund for Broke Politicians
Be sure to post this on all Hillary threads plus on Twitter and FB.
“I’m just a poor multi-millionaire”.
That’s like saying that as a murderer, you really aren’t all that bad because Hitler, Stalin, etc. murdered many more.
“Well Off” is a fairly ambiguous term as I see it. Subjectively speaking she may be correct. Objectively speaking Id say she was indeed rather well off
all these comparisons..AYE!
If this were 1980 or even 1990, that right there would have ended her campaign.
Man, whoever is advising her needs to be fired immediately, cause this tact ain’t having the intended effect.
“Algore scammed more money than we did.”
Rich Commie leftists always see themselves as “middle class” same goes for liberal celebrities..they go on and on about taxing the rich, yet they never mention themselves because they don’t consider themselves wealthy
Sounds like the Hilldabeast in already trying to paint Romney as a one percenter and she as just a little better off than the average Joe.
Well off but not well. http://www.drudgereport.com/flashek.htm
“Our life stealings don’t amount to that much.”
No, the wealthiest americans like Oprah, Buffett, etc, are all contributing to her and the democrat party so she can continue to amass her wealth.
At her core, she is inherently stupid.
With her health as reported I bet she will be dead soon.
Keep digging, Hill.
No, I’m not a witch.
Is this peaking too soon? She would make a wonderfully weak candidate.
Just a poor charwoman worth 21.5 million.

Hillary BS machine Clinton...if her be was manure... we could export it...
And this piece of human excrement said that with a straight face.
To the Democrats the definition of rich depends on who is signing the tax return not the income listed on it.
She admits that her **** stinks...just a little?
I believe her, she’s no as well off as Bill Gates.
Praying SO hard...
And, oh, by the way, Ambassador Chris Stevens wasn't murdered, he died of smoke inhalation.
If she’s banking on taxpayers like her to get elected she can’t win. She needs to appeal to the majority of Americans who don’t pay taxes, just like Obama did.
I consider ourselves well off. We are both retired with 3 retirement checks a month coming in. We bought a house we could afford and it is almost pd off. We paiy cash for 1 yr old luxury cars. We are frugal and still saving money. We have a nice amount in the bank. My family thinks we are rich but we wouldn’t even register on the Clinton’s scale of wealth. I consider her and her hubby rich.
The witch is duplicitous!!
This will make excellent campaign adds. She couldn’t be more out of touch.
According to the current administration if you make more the 250k a year, you are a “millionaire” and aren’t paying your fair share. I’m assuming Hillary will be for a tax break for anyone making less than 20,000,000/year since they are no longer among the “real rich”.
And the gaffes keep coming!
She’s not only drain bamaged but she’s also as morally corrupt a witch as I can imagine.
Her base attitude reminds me A BIT of the “we are the 99!%” rubbish.
So you’re not in the top 1 percent.... folks...SO WHAT??
shes just about to fall off the page anyway
I have a feeling she sees a Soros and billions and is bitterly jealous. She has only her pitiful millions and weeps for herself.
Hillary is so much more on defense than she is advancing that dang book, (a magnificent flop), or is projecting herself as a coherent candidate.
Never thought I’d see the day that her very own media bosom syncophants would *ever* hold her to any standard at all, as any other author and any other candidate.
Relative to those yesteryear puffball interviews she is already in hand to hand combat.
Honestly? I think her old pals actually prefer Jeb Bush over Hillary. If he should announce,I think that given her pathetic book reception, she would fold to avoid the “Bush machine”, that might match hers, dollar for dollar.
Personally, I have not thought she would run at all. Overweight, sluggish, and unlikable have caught up with her, finally.
Come uppance at last.
But was it Mencken who said no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public?

Perhaps she’ll qualify for unemployment or an EBT card. Living paycheck to paycheck must be difficult for Hillaryous!
She should try cattle futures. She was good at that.
If worse comes to worse she could always pimp out her talking appendage, the former POSOTUS, at the nursing homes.
He could shake down Bobble Head Dole for some Viagara.
“I’m just a 0.1-percenter.”
skeeter, DRUDGE has up now the Ed Klien detailed guestimate of Hillary’s heart condition, valve concerns, thyroid trouble, and blood clot history, from his phantom sources, made to sound as if they were in the room.
However, all of it does match her lack of physical carriage, always sitting, sluggish physical behavior, etc.
In another time she wouldn't even bother running. But with the MSM so completely owned by the State I swear now anything is possible.
Who side are you on?
Personally, I think her current advisor deserves a raIse.
It takes a certain amount of “talent” to turn a $1,000 investment into $100,000, doesn’t it?
I’ll have to take her word that a 100 million dollars just doesn’t very far today.
Well, THAT, is a very astute observation I had not considered.
Maybe now the media will sympathetically return to the syncophant position at her chubby knee again, if she is considered “ill”.
bat quano to you Hillary - eat up
