Hillary Clinton’s ‘Dead Broke’ Comment Won’t Make a Big Difference, Says President Obama

By Benjamin Bell

Jun 29, 2014 President Barack Obama doesn’t believe comments made by his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about how she and former President Bill Clinton were “not only dead broke but in debt” when they exited the White House will matter too much if she chooses to run for president.

“As soon as you jump back into the spotlight in a more explicitly political way, you’re going to be fly-spec like this,” Obama told ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview. “She’s accustomed to it. Anybody who gets involved in public life is accustomed to it. Over time I don’t think it’s going to make a big difference.”

Obama asserted that his onetime political rival has a record that speaks for itself.

“I think that Hillary has been to this rodeo a bunch of times,” he said. “She is in public service [be]cause she cares about the same folks that I talked to here today. Her track record on that speaks for itself.”

The president said Clinton’s potential re-entry into the political sphere invites more scrutiny, but said she has experience dealing with harsh criticism and the “dead broke” comment would not likely dog her long-term. Obama Calls Boehner Lawsuit Threat A ‘Stunt’

Clinton, widely seen as the strongest contender for the 2016 Democratic nomination for president, is currently promoting her new book “Hard Choices.” It was during her first television interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer in which she said, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.”

Obama knows that democrats are immune from scandal and outrages of all kinds. Bill Clinton got ____ in the oval office WHILE working and NOTHING happened to him politically. His wife is about to become president.

The LIVs will have long forgotten that Hillary has virtually no accomplishments and will vote for her “to be part of something”.

LOL Hillary is off to a failing start in the run for the WH.

The upcoming fall mediagasm over William Jefferson Webster “lil bubba” Clinton-Mezvinsky will help a bit, but I think she’s far more vulnerable to an attack from the left than she was in 2008.

Look out for Lizzie!

I’ll bet Hillary fired off a note saying, “Thanks, but no thanks!”

Obama knows the American Electorate. He got elected twice. His disdain for the voter is evident in his every action. He knows we’re past the tipping point. Nothing he’s done will be undone. Go fishing. Enjoy your family. Politics in this country is now in the hands of those who control the urban voting blocs.

That photo of her on the 3 story changing choice, don't know what those front and center are called, makes her look too good, like she's in her 30's, lighting or Photoshop makes her look vibrant. What they won't do to promote Hillary.

I can't embed the photo and it will be gone from the front page by tomorrow.

Another thing, the comments were moving right along, then hours ago they stopped all new comments. There is a person on there who says they will all go to jail and Boehner as speaker will be President.

When pigs fly. Never happen.

“Won’t Make a Big Difference”.... Yes, in that it will be between Tweedledee and Tweedledum. God only knows what will be left of America by then.

BUSTED !

Our bills are all due and the bimbos have sued and we're busted
We got no more secrets to sell and we're busted
Our donors went dry and the Chinese won't pay,
Our big stack of bills just gets bigger each day
The bank's gonna haul our plunder away cause we're busted.

Bill went to his brother to ask for a loan cause we're busted.
We hate to beg like a dog for a bone, but we're busted.
His brother said "Bill, there ain't a thing I can do,
My wife and my kids have all packed up and flew,
But thanks for the pardon, I'd drink one for you, but I'm busted."

Well, we've never been caught but people go wrong when they're busted.
The money we scammed last summer is gone and we're busted.
Our billfolds are all bare and the plastic's maxed out,
Our eight years are up, we got to pack up and go,
But we'll make a living, just where I don't know cause we're busted.

We're broke, no bread, I mean like nothing, It's over for us Clintons.....

...Obama told ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview. “She’s accustomed to it. Anybody who gets involved in public life is accustomed to it. Over time I don’t think it’s going to make a big difference.”

LOL Stephanopoulos and Obama KNOW gaffs are NO BIG DEAL if said by a Democrat BECAUSE men like Stephanoppoulos KEEP IT OUT OF THE NEWS.

Keep it out FOR democrats. Biases and damn proud of it.

If a Republican had said the same the press would still be yucking it up about the stupid rich Republican... and they'd be telling the story in 2016. But will Hillary? The press tried to make it 'O-VAR' as the words were dropping from her mouth.

A full-on Clinton sycophant and part-time Obama sycophant interviewing the latter about the former. Great example of the MSM today. And Obama being nice? Doesn’t he know Hillary called him ‘feckless’ and ‘having his hand off the tiller’?
