Yes, Hillary Clinton Has a Mitt Romney Problem

But saying it like that is a bit unfair to Romney

New York Times reporter turned New York magazine blogger Annie Lowrey thinks people should shut up already about Hillary Clinton’s insatiable appetite for money and the sense of enjoyment and entitlement she presumably gets every time she disembarks a Gulfstream jet on the way to her presidential suite near some publicly funded university that’s paying her five times the median income to give a one-hour speech to a room full of rich people.

Hillary Clinton and the Beclowning of the American Left

If Hillary Clinton wants the Democratic nomination in 2016 (and why wouldn’t she, given that basically everything she’s ever done since roughly 1975, when she agreed to defend a child rapist as a “favor” for an Arkansas prosecutor, has been calculated to maximize her political power and/or personal fortune?) it would seem to be hers for the taking.

No matter what. There is not a damn thing committed liberals—the ones whose primary consideration for choosing a president is something other than “That would be really cool because she’s a woman”—can do about it. Is there?

The Clinton Empire Grows Larger by the Day

Free Beacon reader David Brock assembles massive political attack squad
That Hillary's so hot right now.

Not unlike the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Clinton Political Empire (CPE) is expanding and radicalizing, Politico’s Ken Vogel reports.

In what was described as “a major power play,” Clinton minion and loyal Free Beacon reader David Brock is taking over as head of the allegedly nonpartisan (but actually left-wing) watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Brock was elected chairman of the group last week “after laying out a multifaceted expansion intended to turn the group into a more muscular—and likely partisan—attack dog,” Vogel writes.

A crafty photographer has captured some incredible shots of elderly homeowner Hillary Clinton appearing to walk unassisted on a beach in the Hamptons, where the Clintons are currently vacationing for three weeks at an $18 million mansion. She is wearing a “muumuu.”

Carpetbaggers Gonna Carpetbag

Sean Eldridge won't commit to stay in NY-19 if he loses

Sean Eldridge, who became fabulously wealthy by marrying Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate, really wants to be a member of Congress. Eldridge’s husband, Chris Hughes, has purchased multiple mansions in multiple congressional districts in New York in an effort to make this happen. In his current district (NY-19), Eldridge has sought to establish a modern-day feudal system in order to secure the support of the local commoners.

But if Eldridge fails to win his race against incumbent Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), a life-long resident of the district, he probably won’t stick around. He was asked at a recent campaign event in Hillsdale, N.Y., whether he planned to stay in the 18th district even if he lost, but failed to give a direct answer. Instead, Eldridge said he was “very much committed to the Hudson Valley,” a region that includes the town of Garrison in the neighboring 18th congressional district, where the wealthy couple owns another mansion, and where Hughes currently lists his address on campaign finance reports.

Man of the People Sean Eldridge Owns $2,500 Binoculars

Sean Eldridge likes to think of himself as a man of the people, fighting the “special interests,” and looking out for the little guy. In reality, he’s a carpetbagger trying to buy his way to a Congressional seat by establishing a modern-day fiefdom in “his” district (NY-19).

Oh yeah, and he’s married to Chris Hughes, the poke button pioneer who made millions for being Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Harvard. The couple owns several mansions, and apparently likes to fill them with absurdly expensive accessories, such as these $2,500 “naval binoculars,” via Restoration Hardware. The pricey ’nocs are “masterfully handcrafted for generations of use,” and are probably perfect for gazing down at commoners from the couple’s massive $5 million SoHo loft.
