Two headlines from Memeorandum:
With Right Props and Stops, Clinton Transforms Into Working-Class Hero, where Hillary is referred to as “a working mom” and “A good ol’ girl.”
The Clintons’ tax returns show that Bill Clinton earned nearly $51 million from 2004 through 2006. His wife informed the Senate of about $27 million of it, consisting almost entirely of fees from his globe-trotting speaking tours, from which he has fetched as much as $400,000 for a single appearance.
Reporting rules for senators and presidential candidates allowed Hillary Clinton to describe the amounts of her husband’s other income sources as “over $1,000.” These included his more than $10 million in advances and royalties from two book deals, as much as $11.5 million from offshore partnerships that invested in a Chinese media company and more than $2 million from a Nebraska firm whose chairman reportedly spent $900,000 flying the Clintons aboard corporate jets for personal, business and campaign trips.
The sketchy disclosures on Clinton’s statements might help explain why many Americans were surprised to learn, upon release of the couple’s tax returns and a summary of their 2007 income, that they earned $109 million over the last eight years after leaving the White House buried in debt in 2001.
Working class alright, but in a whole different scale.
