Bubba Clinton: Hillary’s comments on money woes are “factually true”

All about image.

Yeah. Ok. Via Reuters:

(Reuters) – Former U.S. President Bill Clinton jumped to his wife Hillary’s defense on Tuesday, saying that the potential presidential candidate is “not out of touch,” after criticism that she mishandled media questions about their personal wealth.

Hillary Clinton told ABC News earlier this month that the couple had been “dead broke” after leaving the White House in 2001 and then drew more fire after suggesting to The Guardian newspaper last weekend that the Clintons are not “truly well off.”

“It is factually true that we were several million dollars in debt,” Bill Clinton said Tuesday of the couple’s previous financial situation. He was speaking to NBC News’ David Gregory, in an interview that will air on Sunday.

Bill Clinton said his wife, a former secretary of state and likely Democratic contender for the White House in 2016, has been working to reduce poverty for as long as he has known her, and that this was reflected in her tenure in the U.S. Senate.

The Clintons’ finances have become a tricky subject for her possible White House ambitions.

Hillary Clinton, who did not grow up wealthy, has given a series of speeches that earn her up to $250,000 each since leaving the State Department in 2013. Bill Clinton also delivers lucrative speeches, and tax returns released in 2007 showed the two had earned $109 million jointly since 2001. The couple owns a pair of homes – one in Washington and one in Chappaqua, New York.

To sum up: What have we re-established from all this back and forth regarding La Clinton’s ridiculous – not to mention unbelievable – comments on the family’s wealth? That the infamous, willfully deceptive Clinton PR/spin machine is alive and well, and that both of them will still say and do anything they can for another chance at the White House. Some things never change … 8-|

    The guy who said that Hillary’s comments on their financial situation were “factually true” also said that the answers he gave in the Paula Jones deposition were “legally accurate”. The judge in the Paula Jones case declared Bubba to be in contempt of court nonetheless.

  2. formwiz says:

    Didn’t he say about what got him impeached that it was also “factually true”?

  3. Drew the Infidel says:

    What’s up with all these commiecrats all of a sudden wanting to “play poor” a la Marie Antoinette? Joe Blow claims he does not own one share of stock or so much as even maintain a savings account. Yeah, and the cow jumped over the moon.

    Don’t piss on my shoes and tell me it is raining.

    I won’t live long enough but I would love to see the day I never hear or see the names Kennedy, Clinton or Obama again.

  5. Carlos says:

    Sounds to me quite similar to what got him disbarred: “It depends on what the definition of ‘IS’ is.” (Obviously he failed basic English as a freshman – in high school – and never recovered.

    Yeah, sometimes I wish I was as poor as the Clintons and had the same ability to strongarm fees like they do.

    But why would I want the grief such socialists put on the politically incorrect rich?
