Hillary clarifies: We weren’t broke-broke, or something

posted at 10:31 am on June 10, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Hillary Clinton clearly wanted to use her Hard Choices book tour to ‘reset’ her public image in preparation for a presidential run in 2016. Instead, she revived the enduring aspects of Clintonianism, in which word parsing and flat-out fabulism — remember the Tuzla Dash? — are used to create alternative realities that Bill and Hillary Clinton want the media to promote. And just as she did in the weeks following her Tuzla Dash claim, facts, common sense, and media scoffing have forced Hillary into the well-known Clinton fallback of “clarification”:

“Let me just clarify that I fully appreciate how hard life is for so many Americans today,” Clinton said on “Good Morning America” in an interview with Robin Roberts. “Bill and I were obviously blessed. We worked hard for everything we got in our lives and we continue to work hard, and we’ve been blessed in the last 14 years. So for me it’s just a reality what we faced when he got out of the White House, it meant that we just had to keep working really hard.”

Clinton’s comments about her financial situation came after she told Diane Sawyer on ABC on Monday night, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt ….We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

It wasn’t easy? The Clintons bought a house in New York in order to make Hillary Clinton eligible to run for the US Senate in 2000 as Clinton wrapped up his final months in the White House. They both sold memoirs that made them millions of dollars, even apart from their multi-million-dollar careers giving speeches. On top of the new houses and new careers, her husband received the cushy presidential pension while she collected her salary and benefits in the Senate. If that’s Hillary’s conception of struggling, then perhaps she should skip the populist strategy she’s apparently considering for 2016, as Jim Geraghty advises:

Remember when I chuckled about New Yorker writer referring to her as “Lunch-Pail Hillary,” suggesting she will run a populist campaign that is “critical of the Wall Street types”? Apparently she really intends to do this.

A woman with a net worth of $200 million, who gives speeches to Goldman Sachs for $200,000 each, is perhaps the single least plausible populist of all time. She may attempt to pose as this reform-minded outsider who will shake up “The System,” when she is perhaps the personification of “The System.” You can count on one hand the number of people who have had more influence over public policy than her since January 1993.

But she’s going to try it, because she is apparently incapable of perceiving herself as she is. Because massive wealth is seen as suspicious or inherently corrupting in today’s political culture, particularly in Democratic circles, she has to pretend she’s middle class, that her personal finance worries are just like those of Americans making mid five figures or less.

The “he’s unbelievably rich and out of touch” attack clearly did damage to Romney in 2012. Hillary Clinton has to hope lots of people don’t react the way Jimmie Bise Jr. did: “I know of dozens of ridiculously-talented, hard-working people who’ll never set foot in a mansion. But Hillary Clinton buys two and weeps.”

Six years ago when the Tuzla story fell apart — she claimed to have landed at the airport under sniper fire in order to bolster her claim to be a foreign-policy heavyweight when video and contemporaneous reports showed no such danger — ABC’s Jennifer Parker decided to look into her past to see whether she was a serial fabulist. Parker discovered an old claim in 1994 in which Hillary claimed to have tried to enlist in the armed forces in 1975, but was turned down for being 27 and having bad eyesight. Parker found this story rather in need of … clarification:

That seems an odd pronouncement for the recruiter to have made, considering that at the time, according to A History of the Women Marines, female Marines who became pregnant were permitted to remain on active service, as this photograph attests.  And I believe the military had a few recruiting problems back in the 1970s — hence their abject rejection of a brainy lawyer wouldn’t make much sense. (Then again, ask a soldier how often Pentagon rules “make sense.”)

At the time Clinton told the story, the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd seemed to wonder about it, pointing out that Hillary and Bill Clinton were married on Oct. 11, 1975 in Fayetteville.

“So, if she was talking to a Marine recruiter in 1975 before the marriage, was she briefly considering joining the few, the proud and the brave of the corps as an alternative to life with Mr. Clinton, who was already being widely touted as a sure thing for Arkansas Attorney General?["]

At that time, I also noted the claim made by Hillary Clinton to have been named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who climbed Mount Everest — even though that Hillary didn’t make the ascent until six years after the other Hillary’s birth. Snopes could find no mention of the mountaineer in any American publication prior to 1953. While the claim isn’t theoretically impossible, it’s in need of great … clarification.

Looks like we’ll be getting a lot of these clarifications over the next two years. Let’s just hope it’s not the next six or ten.

These guys have it all wrong. The “dead broke” comment is justification for why the Clintons emptied the WH of furniture, art, etc

I mean, who can possibly live on $400k/year +$50k/year office allowance for 8 years with zero out-of-pocket living,food, fuel, clothing or vacation expenses.

Via Legal Insurrection:

On top of all this was the tawdry spectacle of the Clintons receiving questionable gifts in preparation for their departure from the White House:

Less than a week after leaving the White House, Bill and Hillary Clinton are facing criticism for accepting gifts worth $190,000 for their New York State home.

There have been allegations of favouritism, as one of the donors is the former wife of fugitive financier Marc Rich, who was pardoned by Mr Clinton on his last day in office.

And the even more tawdry spectacle of the Clintons having purloined White House furnishings, as this February 6, 2001 NY Times report recounts:

Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton received authorization to take certain household furnishings to their new homes as gifts but will return any items that are found to be White House property, a spokesman said today.

In the latest criticism over their departure from the White House, the Clintons faced questions today about taking $28,000 worth of furnishings, which two donors were quoted as saying had been intended to become part of the permanent White House collection, not gifts to the Clintons.

The disclosure, reported in today’s Washington Post, came three days after the Clintons said they would pay $86,000 to cover the value of gifts they received last year in an effort to avoid the appearance of impropriety. The couple had originally sought to leave with $190,000 in gifts.

Officials said that at least $28,000 worth of furnishings, donated in 1993 as part of the White House restoration project, had been registered by the National Park Service as gifts to the permanent collection of the White House and not the Clintons.

The removal of White House furnishings started a year before Bill left office, The L.A. Times reported on February 10, 2001:

President Clinton and his wife started shipping White House furniture to the Clintons’ newly purchased home in New York more than a year ago, despite questions at the time by the White House chief usher about whether they were entitled to remove the items.

The day before the items were shipped out, chief usher Gary Walters said he questioned whether the Clintons should be taking the furnishings because he believed they were government property donated as part of a White House redecoration project in 1993, during Clinton’s first year in office.

2. Millionaire and billionaire Dem politicians are elected, courtesy of millionaire and billionaire Dem donors, crony capitalists, etc.

3. These 1%er Dem politicians proclaim they are going to “do something” about evil, hateful, and racist “income inequality”

4. Dem voters feel good about themselves, are placated, and turn their attention to the Kardashians, etc.

5. Progressive economic policies increase “income inequality”

Rinse & repeat…

Akzed on June 10, 2014 at 10:55 AM

I think back to what the liberal James B. Stewart said about the Clintons in his book “Blood Sport”. Paraphrased, he said what was most remarkable about the Clintons, what shocked him the most, was their apparent near total disregard for the value of the truth. In his experience, the truth didn’t mean anything to them. You know how truth kind of resonates with you? A base, a foundation, an anchor. It has its own meaning. For the Clintons, who’d just as soon tell a lie as tell the truth, the truth has no meaning of its own.

Then there was Hitchens’ book on Bill Clinton, entitled, “No One Left To Lie To”. The book was already in press, but once he came upon that title, he HAD to have it for his book. It was so apropos.

So, what, now there’s a whole new generation for them to lie to?

Prior to departing the White House, the Clintons purchased a $1.7 million home in Chappaqua, New York in September of 1999, according to the Washington Post at the time. The home, an 11-room, five-bedroom, 100-year-old Dutch colonial house, was one of Hillary Clinton’s first steps to establish residency in the state so that she could run for the Senate. In December of 2000, the Clintons also purchased a home in Washington, D.C., after Hillary was elected senator of New York. The five-bedroom, brick colonial-style was purchased by the Clintons for $2.85 million, and is currently assessed for over $5 million, according to District of Columbia records.

The hole, it’s getting deeper: From CNN this morning.

Former Clinton aide Kiki McLean defended Hillary Clinton’s claim that she was “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House by saying that the Clintons “have a life and a set of expectations that are different” from middle class Americans. McLean made the comments on CNN:

Come on people, they can’t be expected to own just one house.

oldleprechaun on June 10, 2014 at 11:25 AM

Team Hillary does have a certain fear of Liz Warren doing to her on the left what Obama did to her in 2008 (Warren’s nowhere near as good on the stump as Obama, but she fulfills the ‘gender card’ option for the left side of the Democratic Party that’s never forgiven Hillary for being too moderate in their eyes). And since ‘income inequity’ is looking like the lynchpin of any challenge to Clinton’s left, yesterday’s statement was an attempt to co-opt that narrative being used against her in the 2016 primaries.

Instead, it heightened the focus on their wealth, and made it even more likely any challenge to Hillary within the party will try to paint the Clintons as crypto-Republican 1 percenters. Bill could do the “I feel your pain” schtick 22 years ago, because he was the governor of a state at the time with below-average national income, who had grown up in a broken home. Hillary can’t play the “You think you’re poor? Let me tell you my life story” routine, because the Clintons not only were in the White House for eight years, they’ve kept trumpeting their high-cost lifestyles to the American public over the 13 1/3 years since they left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The big media won’t give a damn about the Clintons’ millions if she makes it to the 2016 general election. But they will care if there’s a credible candidate to her left in the 2016 primaries.

jon1979 on June 10, 2014 at 11:26 AM

Let’s also recall, if there were this supposed “debt” it was due to legal fees to protect Clinton from perjury, payments to make sex harassment charges go away.

And don’t forget, the Clinton Defense Fund raised well over 8 million dollars, so it’s not like the Clintons paid those legal fees themselves.

I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!! I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!! I KNEW SHE WOULD!!!!!! I KNEW SHE WOULD!!!!!!! I KNEW THAT EITHER CLINTON OR SAWYER WOULD SAY THREE LITTLE WORDS DURING LAST NIGHT’S INTERVIEW THAT WOULD/WILL BE A CLINTON TEMPLATE/STRATEGY SHOULD CLINTON RUN!!!!!

Before I get to the “Three Little words” section, let me say that this was the interview that Hillary and the Mainstream Media WANTED! Clinton did a very good job at the warm/affable/self deprecating approach during the interview.

She chose her words carefully. She used phrases like “Our Republic” “Our Great Country,” She did not say “Bill” she said “My Husband” “My Daughter” “My Mother” look to for more of that into the future…..

The optics were good in the sense of showing all of the “Frumpy pictures” and being self deprecating.and how that was effective. The optics/narrative went pretty heavy on being an example to the next generation of girls (women) ready to lead. (uh, sorry, she didn’t show any of the 08′ crowd girls in Palin glasses with their moms).

She talked about her “Faith” and being involved in the United Methodist Church. You are going to hear more of that if she runs. She will transmogrify verses from the book of Proverbs for her benefit. I am somewhat familiar with what her strategy will probably be. (The NSA probably already knows this…HAHA!! My (M_Minnesota’s) Grandfather repented and trusted Christ as his Savior and felt called to become a United Methodist pastor and preach the Gospel to those who were comfortable in that they were proud and “United Methodist.” My Father also was a United Methodist Minister also conservative theologically. The United Methodist Church is by and large Middler to Liberal although I’m sure there are some (Remnant) that are being true salt and light.

O.K., now TO THE THREE WORDS!!!! I shook my head when I heard all of these Conservatives rubbing their hands together gleefully saying after Bengahzi; “OOOhhhh!!!!! We’ve got Hillary now!!! she’s done for!!!
The Three words that Hillary Spoke. FOG OF WAR. It will be a “really good” defense for the Mainstream Media to run with in false defense of Hillary. You will see “Military Experts” on the left on T.V. show through History the myriad of confusing war scenarios that leaders had to muddle through with sometimes disastrous results!!

M_Minnesota imagining he is behind the Golden EIB Microphone. (DO NOT DOUBT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Palinistas/Conservatives have to do all we can this year in 2014 to help SarahPaC/ShePac so that we may hear those three little words spoken in 08′ by a female Democrat operative, who after listening to Palin’s speech in St. Paul Minnesota said “This Woman’s Trouble!!”

If she does run and gets the nomination, she has 40% of the vote in her hip pocket, regardless of whether she is a lying POS. Women and progressives will vote for her regardless.

Six years ago when the Tuzla story fell apart — she claimed to have landed at the airport under sniper fire in order to bolster her claim to be a foreign-policy heavyweight when video and contemporaneous reports showed no such danger

Where was she on September 11, 2012, when our Ambassador was being fired at?

Remember when I chuckled about a New Yorker writer referring to her as “Lunch-Pail Hillary,” suggesting she will run a populist campaign that is “critical of the Wall Street types”? Apparently she really intends to do this.

The last time Hillary Rodham carried a lunch pail, she was campaigning for Goldwater in high school.

How about “Coat-Tail Hillary?”

Techester64, this is one woman, who if on her deathbed, will demand to be carried to the polls to vote AGAINST this hag!

I think that’s a pretty good bit of analysis Jon.

Sheesh, can you imagine having a fake poor person duking it out with a another fake poor person AND a fake indian at the same time in the Dem primaries?

This is how low our society has sunk.

Maybe Shrillary needs to get ahead of the ball and start claiming that she’s an indian now too. In fact, she just needs to go nuts on the Lib-tard victim-o-meter.

How bout she’s a:

1) poor person
2) indian
3) amputee
5) lesbo (well at least that part would be true…)

Eh, you get my drift…

WhatSlushfund on June 10, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Sheesh, that rag the Washington Post is breathlessly claiming today that “ABC News’ Diane Sawyer destroys Hillary Rodham Clinton on Benghazi.”

LOL. How ridiculous. It was a tongue bath. Killery just slipped up and forgot she and Diane weren’t at dinner together like they usually are when lamenting how hard it is to get by on $25 million — and how the peons just don’t understand that.

I suppose this is a warning, though, to all the other lamestream media outlets: You allow our Pudgy Princess of Death to reveal her true self and we’re comin’ after you. Protect her!

Hillary clarifies:

…she is as formidable a liar…as JugEars!

KOOLAID2 on June 10, 2014 at 12:17 PM

She wasn’t holding a walker on the magazine cover, according to the magazine spokesperson, but all magazine covers are airbrushed to make the subjects look wrinkle-free. In her case, they also had to remove the features of an ogre that make her so recognizable.

Here’s a picture that isn’t airbrushed to death: We Shtruggled…

slickwillie2001 on June 10, 2014 at 12:27 PM

I’d almost rather have that dim bulb Joe Biden be President than Hillary. And that’s really saying something.

WhatSlushfund on June 10, 2014 at 10:51 AM

I definitely would.

I don’t know about “dead broke,” but Hil and Billy were certainly “in debt.” Bill’s legal fees alone were $5 million, and they also owed $1.7 million on the New York home…WHICH THEY BOUGHT IN SEPTEMBER OF 1999.

From the NYT:

With Some Help, Clintons Purchase a White House
By ADAM NAGOURNEY
Published: September 3, 1999

President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday settled the question of where the First Family will live once their lease on the White House expires, signing a contract to buy a $1.7 million, 11-room Dutch Colonial home in the wooded suburbs of Westchester County. The choice of a home in New York removes one of the chief obstacles in Mrs. Clinton’s path as she prepares for a run for the United States Senate.

The Clintons, indebted by over $5 million in legal bills from the investigations that have marked the Clinton Presidency, were able to buy the white-shingled, five-bedroom home in Chappaqua after Mr. Clinton’s chief fund-raiser, Terry McAuliffe, personally secured the loan.

The White House said that Mr. McAuliffe had put up $1.35 million of his own money with Bankers Trust. Under the terms of the mortgage, Mr. McAuliffe will get the money back, with interest from the bank, once the Clintons pay back the mortgage, or, as is more likely, refinance it in five years.

Yes, what a struggle they had putting together the financing for mortgages…

She also forgot to mention her $8 million book deal, and Bill’s $10 million deal.

Owen Glendower on June 10, 2014 at 12:41 PM

Broke-broke, is-is, what difference does it make? Clinton’s are perpetual liars and only serve themselves!

generouse on June 10, 2014 at 12:41 PM

Let’s also recall, if there were this supposed “debt” it was due to legal fees to protect Clinton from perjury, payments to make sex harassment charges go away. Didn’t he settle to pay Paula Jones $800k or something?

MistyLane on June 10, 2014 at 10:35 AM

The debt was due to their legal fees, but regardless, it’s embarrassing for the Clintons to cry poor given their overall financial situation. If you have $11 million in debt, but you just signed an $8 million book contract and your husband is going to start receiving $125,000 per speech, you don’t have true financial problems because it’s obvious you will be able to pay off your debt.

Some of the comments got me:

…………..it seemed so unfair when we left Washington flat broke —while Monica Lewinsky was able to leave with a wad of Bills— Hillary “Pantsuit” McCankles.

Whoa.

Fallon on June 10, 2014 at 1:19 PM

And we all can recall how Palin was bashed over her money problems and she didn’t make near what the Clintons did.

Apparently Hillary “I Ain’t No Ways Tar’d” Clinton was also born a poor black sharecropper in the Deep South.

Waiting for the Lefties to tell her how she didn’t earn that . . .

eMatters on June 10, 2014 at 2:19 PM

$200-million doesn’t mean anything to a liberal who feels that she is poor. If she fees that she is poor, then she’s poor. Why is this so hard to understand?
