Face it, Hil liar y is an unethical liar plain and simple. From her early career she was fired from the Watergate investigation by her own party leaders for lying and unethical behavior. Does a Tiger change it's stripes?
There she goes again By DICK MORRIS ...
The latest iteration of her wish to downplay her wealth so as to be just plain folk was her bald assertions to Diane Sawyer that she and Bill were "dead broke" and "in debt" when she left the White House, struggling to "you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, Chelsea's education, you know, it was not easy."
Some dead broke! Some "not easy"! Consider this:
Her joint tax return with Bill for 2001 showed a $16,165,110 income for her first year out of the White House.
Even before they left the White House, their joint income for 2000 was $359,000, scarcely in the "dead broke" category, particularly when you consider that the Clintons had none of the normal expenses that the rest of us do, such as housing, cars, child care, insurance, electricity, landscaping, healthcare -- all covered by the taxpayers. All they had to pay for was dry cleaning, food and college tuition for Chelsea.
Hillary signed a book contract with an $8 million advance in the closing weeks of Bill's presidency and Bill inked a $15 million deal at about the same time. She got more than $2 million of this in 2001. Is that dead broke?
The Clintons bought a house in September of 1999 in Chappaqua, N.Y., for $1.7 million. In December of 2000, they also purchased a $2.85 million house in Washington, D.C. before Bill left office. Do people who are dead broke and in debt do this?
Chelsea had graduated from college by the end of Bill's term and her tuition for graduate work at Oxford for the year 2001 could not have been too burdensome for a family that would earn $16 million that year.
So why does Hillary Clinton do this? Why make up stories of poverty when they were verifiable multimillionaires?
The former first lady has always felt the need to adjust the truth of her extraordinary circumstances -- up or down -- to suit her political needs of the moment. She wants to be just like us. So, for example, she's spoken of the burdens of providing child care for Chelsea, even as the Clintons had the luxuries of an extensive staff of taxpayer-funded state police and babysitters during Chelsea's early years and a full White House and Secret Service staff afterwards. She is a lying sicko, just like Bill.
