They certainly made up for lost time

What difference, at this point, does it make?

What difference, at this point, does it make?

Less than a week after Hillary moaned that she and Bill had left the White House “flat broke” (albeit with a signed book deal worth $8 million), the happy couple has made it to the top of the list of wealthiest ex-presidential families, ever.

Since leaving office, according to financial records and news reports, they have earned at least $155 million from speeches, salaries and book deals, easily outpacing the post-White House incomes of other former presidential families and distancing themselves from the time when Bill Clinton deducted $2 apiece for used underwear donated to an Arkansas charity.

  1. Did you catch our 90 year old Greenwich Boy land in his own front yard in Maine?

    • I did miss it, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. His first jump was from his own plane when it was shot down during WWII – delighted to see him still around to do it again all these years later under happier circumstances. Here’s a link to the story.

        “Upon hearing of the Pearl Harbor attack, while a student at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, George Bush decided he wanted to join the Navy to become an aviator. Six months later, after graduation, he enlisted in the Navy on his 18th birthday and began preflight training… After completing the 10-month course, he was commissioned as an ensign in the US Naval Reserve on 9 June 1943, several days before his 19th birthday; making him the youngest naval aviator then.” (Youngest EVER, I believe).

        A summary of his military service, decorations, etc. is here: http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq10-1.htm

        Exit question: If our current so-called National Security Advisory believes Bowe Bergdahl served “with honor and distinction” how would she describe Bush Senior??

        • Child killer, no doubt, and of course, capitalist tool.

          W the younger has his 50th Andover reunion this weekend. Don’t know what year the Bush the senior graduated. Hoo-rah sis boom bah!

          • Looks like he’d have graduated in 1942, if he joined the Navy immediately upon graduation and “6 months after Pearl Harbor” as the reader above says.

          Maz,
          If the leftards could answer that, they’d also avoid claiming that Obama is the “smartest president EVER” GW holds an MBA among many other distinctive additions to his academic resume. All we know of O’idiot’s is that his thesis is sealed. Curious, that. Curious birth certificate, too. Zip on the military service as well.

          Excellent point you make, however.

          One might think that Susan Rice would have learned something from her last major kerfuffle from speaking with the press using VJ generated talking points. Young children and small animals learn very quickly not to touch hot surfaces. Apparently Ms. Rice is not quite so smart, which probably explains why she is where she is, kinda like Chuck Hagel.

  2. Nice to be broke with 2 book deals worth a combined $23,000,000.

    Is that the Weather Underground uniform from back in the day?
    Looks to me like she’s responding to Bill Ayers having just said, “Blow me”

    I wonder what the total body count, in the Clintons’ wake, might be. “Suicides”, like those who off’d themselves by falling backwards on a butcher knife some 47 times, don’t count.

    It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
    When I try to explain how I feel
    That I still need your love after all that I’ve done

    You won’t believe me
    All you will see is a girl you once knew
    Although she’s dressed up to the nines
    At sixes and sevens with you

    I had to let it happen, I had to change
    Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel
    Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun

    So I chose freedom
    Running around, trying everything new
    But nothing impressed me at all
    I never expected it to

    Don’t cry for me Argentina
    The truth is I never left you
    All through my wild days
    My mad existence
    I kept my promise
    Don’t keep your distance

    And as for fortune, and as for fame
    I never invited them in
    Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
    They are illusions
    They are not the solutions they promised to be
    The answer was here all the time
    I love you and hope you love me

    Don’t cry for me Argentina
    Have I said too much?
    There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you.
    But all you have to do is look at me to know
    That every word is true

    OOOPS, sorry wrong narcissistic bitch.

      LA, I’m a bit unnerved that you’ve started beling out show tunes on the same day your gravatar mysteriously turned pink.

      • housecat

        NTTAWWT…

      • bunnytee

        Oh no ‘cat!
        Don’t dismantle my vision of LA being a debonair extraordinaire, the suave devil with full compliment of shark’s teeth!

        • housecat

          LA will always be debonair, love of Andrew Lloyd Weber musicals aside.

        • bunnytee

          Oh Whew!
          I was dangerously close to envisioning him in a pink tutu with black Argyl dress socks pulled up to his calves.

      • Libertarian Advocate

        Turns out there was a typo in my email address that caused the gravatar identity confusion. I feel much better as a psychotic lobster, than as a pink cube.

        • bunnytee

          Now that that’s settled, I feel less distraught with LA being a psycho lobster than a pink marshmallow-the devil horns were an artsy touch, I must say.

    Think I’ve seen those pants before: on Sonny . . .

    and on Cher.

    Whoa, they’ve got guns! Must be a promo for their 60s song “Bang Bang.”

    • bunnytee

      The diff. being that Cher could make a gunny sack look good. Hitlary on the other hand wears off-the-rack clearance items from Omar the Tent Maker.

    I’m so relieved that Billary made it through the lean years. One shudders at the thought of them having to (perish the thought) have only ONE multi-million dollar home!

    I’d be willing to bet that despite all their money, they have stiffed plenty of people along their way. Rich dirtbags always find a reason to withhold payment or reneg on a contract.

    “Brain Dead Teen Gets Diploma.” Seems rather on topic here, too.

    Formerly known as grifters, the Clintons are now the greatest influence peddlers in American history.
