Hillary Clinton: We were "dead broke" after White House

The Republican National Committee is saying nobody could be more out of touch than Hillary Clinton.

They're jumping on her response to an ABC News question about the more than $110 million she and Bill Clinton earned on speeches.

Hillary Clinton defends paid speeches

"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton said. "We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education. You know, it was not easy."

    Oh please... Another exaggeration of facts by Hillary, just like the bullets flying over her head (I know a guy who was there, she was never in any danger). Besides, she and Bill had plenty of assets they could have sold off if they were really that desperate to make ends meet. Pathetic.
