Isnít It Rich?
New York Times ^ | July 12, 2014 | Maureen Dowd

Posted on 07/12/2014 9:01:55 PM PDT by Second Amendment First

CHELSEA CLINTON never acted out during the eight years she came of age as America’s first daughter.

No ditching of her Secret Service detail. No fake IDs for underage tippling. No drug scandal. No court appearance in tank top and toe ring. Not even any dirty dancing.

Despite a tough role as the go-between in the highly public and embarrassing marital contretemps of her parents, Chelsea stayed classy.

So it’s strange to see her acting out in a sense now, joining her parents in cashing in to help feed the rapacious, gaping maw of Clinton Inc.

With her 1 percenter mother under fire for disingenuously calling herself “dead broke” when she left the White House, why would Chelsea want to open herself up to criticism that she is gobbling whopping paychecks not commensurate with her skills, experience or role in life?

As the 34-year-old tries to wean some of the cronies from the Clinton Foundation — which is, like the Clintons themselves, well-intended, wasteful and disorganized — Chelsea is making speeches that go into foundation coffers. She is commanding, as The Times’s Amy Chozick reported, up to $75,000 per appearance.

*

There’s something unseemly about it, making one wonder: Why on earth is she worth that much money? Why, given her dabbling in management consulting, hedge-funding and coattail-riding, is an hour of her time valued at an amount that most Americans her age don’t make in a year?

If she really wants to be altruistic, let her contribute the money to some independent charity not designed to burnish the Clinton name as her mother ramps up to return to the White House and as she herself drops a handkerchief about getting into politics.

After years of alcohol and anger issues a little cookie gives her a moment of lucidity?

How would we know?? She could have been having marathon orgy sessions in the Rose Garden and the media would never say anything.

Maureen Dowd is capable of intelligent thought!

And can be critical without being sophomoric.

Who knew?

They know their own and will always support them. Another reason the NY Slime is not a “news” paper but a propaganda machine. May they die a slow death—wait that is happening now. How lucky we are.

Send in the Clintons?

She could be a candidate for President in every election for as long as most of us are alive.

She has more executive experience than Obama, even today.

I don’t give Chelsea a pass. But she’s acting out what she’s been taught. When she grows up she may change. But probably not.

Girls that just wanna (and do) have fun possess “attributes” sorely lacking in Chelsea.
