One day after Bill Clinton insisted his family’s wealth doesn’t make him or Hillary “out of touch” with regular people’s economic reality, the former president found himself happily recounting the 14 expensive Swiss watches and “two rugs” he bought to hand out to friends.

I bought a fancy Chinese watch for $7.00 a few months ago. I actually liked it so much I bought two more for my Grandchildren.

There was a notice that it was not associated with “Polo”. I had not even noticed any similarity but after looking at the box, it did show a guy playing polo.

“Clinton spoke at a Denver meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative on Wednesday, where the moderator asked him about a visit he paid in April to a Detroit-area watchmaker selling ritzy Swiss watches for $550 a pop.”

If Clinton buys “ritzy” $550 Swiss watches just proves he really is from Arkansas. I can actually believe this, it fits, once a poser always a poser. Just like our current POTUS.

Flame away Arkansans.....

Who knows why. He might be able to sell those watches for a pretty profit to people who would want “a watch worn by Bill Clinton.”

Redneck luxury would be a $25 walmart watch.

I bought a Swiss (Elgin) pocket watch in 1965 for $38. You could unscrew the back and adjust the fast/slow mechanism fairly easily. I eventually got it to where it gained about two seconds a day.

About once a month I would correct it. It still works fine.

Swiss watches for $550 a pop

The really expensive watches start around $70K.

I get the print issue of Forbes magazine and it's loaded with ads for watches, the only ad I've ever seen that listed a price was $70K and up.

I guess the advertisers think, if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it.

You can get some pretty nice Breitling watches for under $2000.00

You’d have to be a moron or Progressive to donate anything to the “Clinton Global Initiative” ... it’s nothing but a slush fund for Slick Willy and family.

I am not quite sure who Tom Arnold was talking about when he said, ''We're America's worst nightmare: white trash with money!'', himself and Roseanne or the Clintons.

I’m sure he wouldn’t have any problem with us buying fancy guillotines then.

Old conventional wisdom: Bubba’s more astute at retail politics than Hillary.

New CW: Most of the time.*
