Hillary And Bill Buy Property In Dominican Repub.

Fri May 18, 2007 3:36 am

I mean seriously, is this telling us that Madame Hillary could not find any property in her own country (or territories) that were good enough for her? If this is true it will have to be one of the biggest political blunders in a good long while.



Exit strategy for Hillary, post election?  duck

First of all, this 'news' comes from some sort of gossip column - as reliable as the toilet paper I used last week.

But if on the off-chance it were true, can anyone say, "tax shelter"?

I saw a ticker on CNN and Foxnews with the news.

Did the research online and only found these two articles.

Sorry, I couldn't find the Foxnews article.  bouncy

So effing what? Is there anything illegal about it? Is there anything imoral like homless Hatians being evicted offthe property so they can occupy it? Gees talk about not having a life.

For good, cheap property and good weather all year round, nothing beats the Caribbean.

Better yet, Ecuador!

Don't see anything wrong here at all (and my dislike for anything Clinton is similar to Ted's anything Bush). After all, doesn't Florida still get very cold at times?

Who cares? Is there some rule that American politicians are not allowed to ever reside outside of America? Biggest political blunder my ass.

Rarely. I was there when it snowed in Miami, but it was a laughable event compared to what I have seen in the Smokies and in Chicago.

If this is true, then, yes, it is a BIG political blunder.

How does one go about showing that you're even less connected to the average Joe?

You go buy a vacation home in the Caribbean.

Now I know that HRC is up against a near billionaire (Romney) and a guy who's made nearly $300 million with his shady security firm by shamelessly exploiting his 9-11 credentials (Guiliani), but rightly or wrongly, HRC is held up to a different standard.

I would bet that a lot of US lawmakers own properties overseas, get over it.

That was a long held Roosevelt family owned summer home, long before he became President.

If they were more politically sensitive, they could have got a property on the US Virgin Islands or P.R.
Perhaps it is a way to have residency for the purposes of divorce - The Dominincan Republic has been known for years for easy civil divorce laws and procedures.

But Kerry went skiing to show that he's a real jock.  Smile You know, jocks on $10,000 skis.

But seriously, all these guys - Republicans and Democrats - are millionaires many times over.

I don't begrudge Romney his wealth - he's a smart man who took advantage of his education and worked hard for it, nor do I begrudge Edwards his wealth although the usual knee-jerk types will start to scream ambulance chaser. I do, however, find Guiliani's recent accumulation of wealth distasteful. The man has 9-11 exploitation written all over him.

Yeah but that was when the average person didn't care about where the president had his summer home.

I can just see the attack ads now and they would go something like this:

"HRC buys a summer home in the DR, tell me who would by their summer home in the DR someone who doesn't want to support the US economy. HRC bad for the economy, bad for America yada yada yaga."

And the worst part is that this  redflag  works.

So she bought property. So what. Does it matter where it is? If she had bought property in Arizona, people would be upset because of the Whitewater deal she invested her own money in. So, who cares? One could also look at it this way: with a home in DR, she would not have to declare a home state as such and not offend anyone. IIRC, Bush 1 was telling the people of Texas "I live here and am one of you" or some such thing as one reason for Texans to vote for him, then spent his free time during his term in Maine.
