Video: CNN hosts laugh at Hillary for saying she’s not “truly well off”

posted at 11:21 am on June 23, 2014 by Allahpundit

Good thing I squeezed in that post last week about how none of these gaffes really matter because, er, today it feels like they’re starting to matter. You could excuse the “dead broke” soundbite on grounds that everyone makes mistakes; I don’t know how you excuse her doubling down by claiming that she’s not “truly well off.” Maybe Dan Drezner’s right that this is a near-terminal case of Status-Income Disequilibrium, in which Hillary simply can’t grasp how people as influential as her and Bill nonetheless earn far less than many of the people they hang around with these days. Or maybe she’s so confident in Bill’s blue-collar appeal that she thinks she can afford to be not terribly guarded in talking about her wealth. These are weird errors to be making, though, knowing that Elizabeth Warren, Thomas Piketty, and income inequality are the rage on the left. It’d be like Romney talking up the virtues of ObamaCare on the trail circa 2010. Even a bad campaigner should have some primitive sense of how to stay in his/her base’s good graces. Could Hillary actually be … a worse retail politician than Mitt?

I still don’t think she’s going to get a serious primary challenger — Martin “Who?” O’Malley isn’t going to beat the Clinton machine by out-pandering them on amnesty — but I’m less confident now than I was four days ago. At a minimum, she’s going to ramp the blather on income inequality way, way up to try to atone for this. Brian Beutler thinks Hillary’s been planning all along to run on soaking the rich. If she wasn’t before, she will be now:

“[T]hey don’t see me as part of the problem,” she said, “because 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.”…

Nearly all viable presidential candidates are extremely rich. Obama is himself quite rich, though not exactly Kennedy/Bush/Kerry/Romney rich. The next GOP nominee might not be quite as cartoonish a plutocrat as Romney, but he will almost certainly be wealthy, and, crucially, will almost certainly promote an agenda that would exacerbate economic inequality. When Clinton said “we pay ordinary income tax” she wasn’t just taking a gratuitous jab backwards at Romney for paying taxes at a sub-15 percent rate. She was presaging an agenda that will almost certainly call for eliminating or reducing tax preferences that allow an entire class of people of great wealth to reduce their effective tax rates. I don’t know if she’ll propose jacking up the capital gains tax, or closing the carried-interest loophole. I don’t know if she’ll target individual tax loopholes, or advocate for capping tax expenditure benefits or anything about what her economic agenda will look like. But I am 100 percent confident it will include some measures along these lines, and nearly as confident that the Republican candidate will oppose it in every particular.

The question is whether her recent screw-ups will encourage her to embrace populism more firmly than she wanted to, to appease the left. Her billionaire friends will let her get away with it on the stump: If the only alternative is Warren, they might as well back Hillary to the hilt and then trust her to forget about her promises once in office. But that doesn’t solve her immediate problem, which is that the more she talks like this, the more it’s going to entice some would-be blue-collar champion into the race — Warren, crank-ish but fun Brian Schweitzer, maybe even … Joe Biden. Meanwhile, on the GOP side, this is good news for everyone but Jeb Bush, I think. If Hillary bumbles her way into the general election reeking of ruling-class privilege, Republicans would want to counter with someone who’s not obviously a member of that same class. That points to someone young, from outside Washington, who’s not terribly wealthy, and, uh, doesn’t share a gene pool with two former presidents, namely, Walker, Jindal, or Christie. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will also run along those lines, as outsiders who’ve infiltrated the Beltway. Barring a Jeb coronation, the Republican nominee will almost certainly be less “ruling class” than the Democratic one in 2016, a good thing to be at a moment when Americans despise Washington like virtually never before. The mystery is whether Beutler’s right that eliminating tax advantages to investment is the sort of populist flourish that can neutralize that disadvantage for Democrats.

cat_owner on June 23, 2014 at 11:26 AM

This is the problem with income inequality/class warfare becoming a permanent feature within the Democrat Party platform post-Obama. Most Democrat politicians are rich. And the ones who run for President(at least the ones with a prayer of winning the nomination) are usually filthy rich. You can’t run as a populist champion for the middle class on the one hand while having a 9-figure net worth on the other. At least Mittens never pretended he wasn’t wealthy or or devoted time on the campaign trail to bashing people who had achieved financial success in life.

They sure as he!! Don’t see you as the solution, either. And is there some sort of un-ordinary tax that uber wealthy pay that just they pay because they are uber wealthy and made it not the way the Shillary did? Did I miss that tax being implemented?

You are the One Percent. Deal with it.

Patriot Vet on June 23, 2014 at 11:29 AM

I don’t know how you excuse her doubling down by claiming that she’s not “truly well off.”

Hey! Let’s not cast stones until you’ve walked a mile in her Prada pumps. After eight years in the White House as a co-grifter (who thought the furniture was hers for the taking), a Senator who had to spend big to get her seat, and a SecState who traveled the world…… Well, you can see how it is a letdown when the caviar and wine are suddenly domestic, the limos much shorter and without motorcades, and CNN has to pay for an approving audience for their “interview.”

A woman who dodged bullets in Bosnia deserves better than to have to wear the same outfit twice.

There’s a set of pretty devastating commercials to be harvested from that clip.

aquaviva on June 23, 2014 at 11:33 AM

Maybe the Soroses of the world need to get a token Republican in there anyway, to jolly along the peons and stave off financial collapse for a few more years. They think if they don’t grow the government quite as quickly as it does under Democrats, then happy days are here again. Plus, President Christie will try and ram through gun control and amnesty for the illegals, which a Democrat will have a harder time accomplishing. And a Republican will try and ‘fix’ ObamaCare, entrenching it further into our system.

So I could see Hillary as the Democrat that’s set up for defeat. And then 4 or 8 years later, the righteous indignation at the failure of the first woman nominated by a major party for President will give whoever comes next a big advantage. Nevermind all the mileage they’d get out of the war-against-women idea during a Christie presidency.

One can’t make this up in fiction.

100 million is “not well off” when you’re a Clinton.

Splitting the NY house in two, for tax and inheritance tax evasion purposes, while Bill Clinton is for an increased inheritance tax…while Hillary just claimed “unlike others who are truly rich and hide their wealth abroad, forgetting the Kennedy trusts…

Oh well, you get the picture.

If you are a leftist thug, in the leftist latrine, you’re a clean as a bell, crystal clear clean.

When you consider all of Hillary’s contributions to the world, a $100M is an extremely unjust figure.

OK, a little less sarcasm here, but, WHY would we want someone in charge of government spending and budgeting who can’t make ends meet (i.e. “flat broke”) while living in free housing (the White House) with all expenses paid by someone else (taxpayers), and raking in $400K a year salary plus book and speaking fees?

dentarthurdent on June 23, 2014 at 12:02 PM

At this point, what difference does it make?

Hillary won’t be president, but neither will any republican.

Obutthead is not a dumb person. He has a well thought out, grand plan in the making as we speak. It started the first day of his first term, continued through Fast and Furious, and policies that you thought were stupid to empower Islamofascists but were right in line with his grand plan.

His plan is coming to a denoumont. The world, and this nation, are in great turmoil. We are being invaded from the South, and the Islamofascists are setting up their Caliphate in the middle east, all thanks to Obutthead’s careful planning. They will be ready to act in an October Surprise like you’ve never seen.

Obutthead’s grand plan will come to fruition in June-October 2016 when we are attacked with weapons of mass destruction. The federal government is ready with an armed DHS and Post Office to control the population when Marshal Law is imposed and the elections are cancelled.

There will be no new president. Hail the new dictator, Obutthead. Mark my words.

I understand the Hillary – Dem sycophants – but to even mention Republicans is doing Hillary’s work for her.

To make comparisons – the reality of Hillary a) Lying through her teeth, b) exposing her horrid political chops, c) exposing Dems for the “income equality” frauds they are is completely lost and the target is focused on inane comparisons.

We already know there is a stark difference in wealth – it all depends on the (R) or (D) next to someones name – and nothing more.

Stick to Hillary, her hypocrisy, her bumbling “everyman’s person” shtick, her failing book tour, her lying, her horrid resume, etc. etc.

In retail politics it is going to be hard for the Clintons to pull off the idea they are connected to the “little people” when neither of them have really done much outside of public office other than review ghost-written books and make speeches for big money. The idea that Killary and Bill were struggling to make ends meet and were living on Hamburger Helper in the days after leaving the White House is absurd.

That’s a charming quote by Clancy. I hope he didn’t waste these peoples’ time:

How can Hitlery stand for such insubordination?? The Hildabeast must make an example of these two morons and fire them immediately. She doesn’t put up with her media representatives editorializing.

And almost half of the people living in Detroit who cannot pay their water bills as reported this morning will still vote for her 95% or so.

Rush Limbaugh just had some great fun with that story…

“Hey mom & dad, when I grow up I want to be ‘not well off’, like the Clintons.”

People like this were made a head shorter in the French Revolution. Ah, for a return to the old days…

I often wonder what these people would do if the media ever started to tell the truth about them, or even just report on them in the first place. Hillary needs to announce whether or not she is going to run so she can get back her war room and advisors such as Carville, et al. I think she’s beatable in a primary.

The Hillary Brand is strong. Even my otherwise conservative and religious business MBA Corporate wife (early 30s) thinks she would be a strong leader without being able to list a single accomplishment. I think somehow in the younger generations mind she gets an automatic branding of competent and tough. Beats me as to why. I don’t know if you can dent it without something big.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Holder runs.

The gimmedats would be all over that.

NapaConservative on June 23, 2014 at 3:06 PM

This shows that she is driven by envy. To people like her, anything is okay, because that guy has something you don’t have!

Very astute comment PattyJ !

2014 matters a lot more than Hillary

To Allahpundit and Hot Air readers:

Seriously. Why do we care about Hillary Clinton at this point? If the Republicans don’t take the Senate in 2014, and then take some serious legislative actions, 2 more years of an unchecked Obama administration will inflict major damage on the U.S.

The electoral landscape is going to look much different in 2016 than it does now. I know its fun and easy to bash a thoroughly dislikeable Hillary Clinton, but she should not be the current focus of Conservative, Tea Party, Libertarian, or Republican voters.

What’s the term? Oh yeah, “affluenza.” Thanks, libs!

Common Sense Floridian on June 23, 2014 at 12:23 PM

Thanks for reminding us! “Affluenza” is the perfect definition for Hillary.

I don’t like to complain …. but I’m going to! My family is or has been what you’d call lower to mid “middle class” … not poor but no where near rich either. It is getting harder just to put food on the table let alone try to make one necessary major repair and several minor repairs on our older house (1901? … 1899?). Good thing the house is paid for, although the City of Minneapolis property tax is at least twice as much as it should be … probably as much as our house payments would be if we were still paying for it. Obviously they over-inflate the worth of the house for tax purposes.

Hillary … Either you don’t really care … OR … YOU KNOW NOTHING !!! (Maybe both?)

Agreed; Holder thinks VERY highly of himself.
