Hillary Clinton, apparently forgetting where she came from decided to throw in the with the poors in a recent interview and proclaim that her and Bill “struggled” with money after they left the White House at the end of 2000.
“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton told Diane Sawyer in an interview with ABC News. “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.”
“Resources for mortgages.” That’s plural.
Know why? Because while everybody knows about the $1.3 million house in Chappaqua, NY the Clintons bought, not much has ever been said about the $3.2 million house they bought at the same time in Washington, DC.
Perhaps now that Hillary is making $200,000 a speech, she seems to think putting the funds together to get two mortgages valued at nearly $5 million is a “struggle.”
Granted, the Bill and Hilary did have legal debts of nearly $10 million but cry me a river. The bulk of that came as a result of their constant lying and interference in valid investigations. I’m not shedding tears for them. Especially when Bill cleared enough cash in a mere two years to pay off those debts.
Maybe Hillary was talking about the “struggle” of having to get their wealthy friend, Terry McCauliffe to guarantee the mortgage in NY with over a million dollars of his own money. I mean, really. Who doesn’t have millionaire friends sitting around waiting to throw millions at friends for their mortgage?
Naturally, somebody at Salon decided to chime in, saying the following:
The people who spent all of 2012 defending Mitt Romney are now attacking Hillary Clinton for being rich http://t.co/R3xvcmKOmR

Nobody has said any such thing.
Unlike the left, conservatives are actually happy when people take advantage of the free market and make money.
What Salon highlights is obvious mockery made towards the people who love to engage in class warfare, pretending they connect with commoners when in fact, they have more in common with Mitt Romney.
Is there anything wrong with that? Not at all.
Difference is, you won’t see conservatives creating political ads claiming somebody died of cancer because a candidate supposedly cared more about the bottom line than the people around them.
Chances are, Hillary will issue a statement where she “clarifies” her position. She’ll blame conservatives who engaged in a “witch hunt” against her and her husband for creating their legal debts.
