How so? You dont think the Clintons would loan their daughter money to start a business if she chose to start one? If they cant trust their own child, why should we trust them...

The Clinton don't "have their wealth," they earned their wealth.

I notice you seem to be having difficulty understanding the difference between earning wealth through work and effort and being born into wealth and inheriting it with no effort involved. There are plenty of online dictionaries that you could use to educate yourself on the difference between the words "earn" and "inherit." I'm pretty sure you're capable of doing that, though having read many of your posts here, I won't assume.

But good attempt at trying to justify the left voting for the wealthy, cough, hypocracy..
You really should seek help for your apparently failing short term memory.

You titled YOUR own thread "Didn't vote for Romney cause he was rich" so contrary to your claim, you DID say they wouldn't vote for someone because they are rich.

Your response and allegation are BOTH utter failures.

Your troll doesn't even qualify as a good attempt.

BTW, it's H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y, as much as you practice it you should learn how to spell it, eh?

More than that, Bill Clinton grew up lower middle-class. His family struggled with money. Hillary grew up in a solidly middle class home. Neither grew up with stock portfolios and servants. That means they can relate to the financial stresses faced by average Americans. Even when Bill Clinton was elected Governor of Arkansas, they struggled financially. After all, the job only paid $30,000/year. And it was a 24/7 job.

When Romney needed money as a college student, he simply sold some of his stock shares. That's not a typical experience for college students. When he moved to Massachusetts, his father bought him a home that some of his college professors couldn't afford. That's not a typical experience for grad students.

The idea that Romney couldn't relate was supported by statements that Romney himself made.

But she's a minority and she's a woman and that trumps money

Rich Dems are "hard working" while rich Repubs are "leeches".
Go figure.

left wing liberal class envy argument.

For the Clinton's is not about wealth, its about power. They like being in power. That explains why Bubba has sexually violated a long list of women under him and Hillary just like power and be in control.


Hitler, Castro, Mao and Stalin came from lower middle class and poverty. Did they knew best how to help the poor? because history shows they made the lives of the poor and average folks a lot worse.



Let me ask you a question, when JFK ran for president in 1960 against Nixon who came from a low middle class family, did the liberals put JFK and the Kennedy's wealth into question like they did to Romney? how about FDR? and Kerry?



or only rich privilege candidates are ok as long that they are Democrats?

Straw man fallacy.

How about actually responding to the topic of the thread, which is about the difference between the Clintons' wealth and Romney's wealth?

Here, let me help you. The Clintons are hard working and earned their wealth. Romney was born into it and leeched it off his Daddy.

Understand now?

If you vote for them, while objecting to Romney cause he couldnt relate to the people due to his vast wealth, you're a hypocrite..
It's more hypocritical than that.

The same people that voted for Kerry turned around and complained that Romney was rich lol.

While trying to use excuses like "well those are his wifes 7 houses and billion dollars....."

While that is one thing I admire about the Clintons (and Reagan, OBama etc)....you have to admit that the "Romney Wealth Issue" was contrived hypocrisy in light of a loooong history of wealthy candidates from both parties...especially after Kerry. I mean come on....Kerry's worth as much as BOTH candidates combined from the last 20+ years of presidential elections and he just married into it and she was handed it all as an heiress.
