The vast right wing conspiracy is back, complete with a serving of whine.

Hillary Clinton is currently on what is being labeled a “book tour from hell.” The last week has not gone well for her largely because of her own unforced errors.

While a serious debate on her foreign policy record surely is waiting down the road, Mrs. Clinton this week is dealing with a hail of mockery on Twitter for her claims of financial trouble.

The #HillaryIsSoPoor hashtag has at times blended the “dead broke” comment with Mrs. Clinton’s time at the State Department. “#HillaryIsSoPoor she couldn’t afford proper security for Benghazi,” reads one tweet.

The mockery was sufficiently strong that on Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton conceded that her “dead broke” comment needed some context.

In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” she said she understands why some Americans may be confused or even angered by the statement. The couple’s net worth has been estimated to be between $100 million and $200 million.

Americans everywhere understand how tough it is meet mortgages on two mansions while sending your kid to an elite university and having friends who can conjure up a highly questionable $1.3 million dollar loan guarantee out of nowhere.

However, some ethics experts said that other executive and legislative branch officials might be prohibited from accepting such help. Although federal employees are prohibited from taking most gifts, the rules make an exception for the president and vice president – a difference originally intended to allow them to accept gifts from foreign dignitaries but that has since been invoked in permitting Clinton, for example, to accept contributions to his legal defense fund.

Even if a mortgage guarantee is not considered a gift for the purposes of the disclosure form, a government official said, it could be deemed a gift – and prohibited to other government employees – under the rules restricting acceptance of such benefits.

“It’s hard to imagine how it isn’t a gift,” said one private lawyer who specializes in government ethics. “It’s not that he wrote him a letter commending his character. He’s put $1.3 million in cash out and doesn’t have the use of that for the period of the balloon clause. . . . There’s no way of seeing it as something not of value to the Clintons.”

Interestingly, Hillary claims to have been $12 million in debt but that’s not what the NY Times was reporting 15 years ago:

The Clintons, indebted by over $5 million in legal bills from the investigations that have marked the Clinton Presidency, were able to buy the white-shingled, five-bedroom home in Chappaqua after Mr. Clinton’s chief fund-raiser, Terry McAuliffe, personally secured the loan.

Hillary and Bill also had $350,000 in cash for a down payment.

During her book tour Hillary showed how old people can get cranky.

And now, the vast right wing conspiracy is back.

Clinton responded: “They are trying constantly to, you know, raise false canards, you know, plant, you know, false information, and that’s what they do.”

“Yeah, Karl Rove tried that with my health and got totally, you know, shot down. I am so used to these people. They’re like a bunch of, you know, gamers,” said Clinton.

Clinton added that she believes Rove and Drudge pose such questions simply to avoid a “real debate” of important issues affecting the American people, saying it’s business-as-usual for conservatives to attack her on matters that are “totally off subject.”

Hillary should explain if that also includes Monica.

And now a serving of whine:

Hillary is making many errors and losing friends. Her favorability ratings are dropping like a stone and she is inextricably tied to Obama, whose Presidency is disintegrating.

Worse, no one can name a Hillary Clinton accomplishment during her tenure at State. No one.

Not a State Department spokesman.

Not the Morning Joe panel.

Not members of the Democratic National committee.

Not Lanny Davis.

Things aren’t necessarily looking up for Hillary as Obama seems to be losing interest in being President. He truly thought he’d be king and this President gig is not working out. Then again, the last thing this country needs is a second President in a row who has accomplished nothing. We already have seen the results of doing that once.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Why is Hillary getting such harsh treatment (that is to say, not the usual fluff, soft-ball, “when did you realize how great you actually are?” and “boxers or briefs?” questions usually reserved for liberal candidates) from the compliant left wing media? Is she not the far left media-anointed shoe-in this season?

    It is a scam — they are just running a combo of publicity for the book — and wiggling a woman potential candidate out there — stalking horse / decoy — I think their real aim is trying to smoke out Sarah Palin.

    My question to Hillary is, “how is it that your daughter Chelsey, who is white made $600,00 per year, which is twice as much as the $300,000 per year Moochel, who is black made in her younger years”?

    The Vast Right wing Left wing conspiracy…..
    Remember those cop killers in Las Vegas Nevada?
    The media loved calling them Tea Party members, right wingers and so on.
    Turns out:
    They were members of the far left #Occupy movement.

    While living in Lafayette, Jerad and his wife Amanda took part in last November’s “Million Mask March” – a gathering of protesters from the Occupy movement, anarchists, and hacktivists.

    Thanks. This had an odd odor to it from the get-go. I couldn’t help but be reminded of the various “victims of racism” who slapped confederate battle flags on their (self-) vandalized room or car as “proof” of a “hate crime”, blissfully unaware that honest people do not connect the battle-flag with “hatred,” and would never use it in such a demeaning manner. (I’m a Yankee, by the way.)
    The scattering of Nazi flags with the Gadsden didn’t make any sense at all unless it was, pardon me, a “false flag” ruse.

    America’s political system is the most “Brutal” in the world? This woman is incredibly stupid. Why did the Left try to promote her as the most intelligent woman in the world?

    Oh well, go ahead and run Hillary, put your ignorance on display, let the world know why you couldn’t pass the DC Bar and why you sound like you are slapping the monkey while pontificating in a never ending circle to express a simple bit of logic.

    @Nanny G:

    I suspect that this revelation of the shooters having an Occupy Movement connection must be why the Las Vegas MSM is no longer talking about the shooters.

    This AM her ”Hard Choices” book was #5 on Amazon’s top 100 list.
    Now, just 7 hours later, it is #4.
    Not exactly a flop.
    She is vaccinating herself by going on Fox and all the news shows now.
    Later, she will be able to say she did all of this already.
    The ”time for debate” will be over.
    The real problem is that she seems to have lost a step since her faint/fall/concussion.
    She is not doing so well on TV like she used to.
    I used to think she’d be better than Obama.
    But, these days, after hearing her lately, I’d say many Dems would be better than her.

    @Nanny G: #8
    How many of those book purchases were bulk buys by her supporters, made to drive the numbers up? IIRC, this has been done before…
    Oh, and for a laugh, read some of the Amazon comments!

    Hillary Clinton Wants ‘Automatic Weapons’ Ban, Says Gun Owners ‘Terrorize the Majority of People’

    “First of all, I think as a teacher or really any parent, what’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard. We make hard choices and we balance competing values all the time. And I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook, and now we’ve had more in the time since. And I don’t think any parent–any person–should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reason–psychological, emotional, political, [ideological], whatever it means–could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.”

    Clinton went on to say, “We cannot let a minority of people… hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

    She concluded:

    “My view is, yes we need to thrash this out in the political realm. But the vast majority of Americans–even law-abiding gun owners–want background checks that work, information that is shared immediately, and an awareness that we’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens–including our children–from that very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence, and now with automatic weapons, can wreak so much more violence.”

    Unfortunately for Hillary, this statement has yielded another gaffe for her book launch press blitz. No one is using “automatic weapons,” which are already illegal, in school shootings. Secondly, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV)–author of the Manchin-Toomey gun control bill that didn’t pass–admitted that his bill would not have stopped the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. And Breitbart News has reported that the bill would not have stopped the attacks at Santa Barbara, Troutdale Oregon, Fort Hood (April 2014), Arapahoe High School, LAX, Fort Hood (Nov. 2009), or the Aurora theater, among other crimes, either.

    Oh, and for a laugh, read some of the Amazon comments!

    Good call. I did visit. I did get quite a few chuckles.’

    Clearly a majority who gave a review are from the left although some people said they bought and read to see what all the ‘hype’ was about.

    Many said do not waste your money – self-serving – to shed light on her potential presidential aspirations/candidacy – not ‘honest’ (no surprise there) – incompetence – and various other not very glowing reviews and opinions.

    I even got a new slogan from one gentlemen clearly he was an Obama supporter who now says : “Change We Can Bereave In”

    Not sure whether to chuckle or cry at that one…

    Good catch.
    Politico and Washington Examiner compare Hillary’s sales with Sarah Palin’s.
    Sarah Palin: 496,000 copies in its first week of release….http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/11/25/going-rogue-goes-to-top-of-book-sales-chart/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0
    Hillary Clinton 100,000 copies Tues-Sat (only 5 days) http://www.politico.com/story/2014/06/hillary-clinton-book-107959.html
    So, if you’re a toady for Hillary get out there and spend $21 plus tax for that book!
    It’s fallen back to #5 in sales on Amazon!
