Hillary Clinton: I Know What It's Like To Scrimp And Save When You're Down To Your Last 20 Million Dollars

Hillary Clinton's new book is out and she's charged up her Hoveround for a media tour.

She's taking this opportunity to remind America that like them she knows what it's like to struggle in tough financial times.

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.”

According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.

Hmmm, that doesn't sound....right.

Let's look back to how the Clintons left the White House.

Hillary Clinton Book Advance, $8 Million, Is Near Record By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK Published: December 16, 2000


Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton agreed last night to sell Simon & Schuster a memoir of her years as first lady, for the near-record advance of about $8 million.

December 16, 2000 seems to be a bit earlier than January 20th, 2001 which was the date that the Clinton's "left the White House".

She was also making $186,600 as a US Senator.

Bill was pulling down $200K in pension as an ex-President (that's just cash and doesn't include office staff, protection, etc).

Of course that was just to hold him over until August of 2001 when he signed his book deal which was worth....$10 million.

$18 million in 8 months. It's a wonder they ever made it through. Hell, they probably had to consider sending Chelsea to the local community college or something.

Thank God that will some tough choices, thrifty habits and aggressive coupon clipping, these plucky kids made it through.

See, they are just like you!

This would be a good time for me to remind you of something most people seem to have forgotten until today....Hillary Clinton is a terrible political candidate.
