Bill Clinton Earned $13.4M On Speech Circuit in 2011
Posted on: 10:15 am, July 4, 2012, by Dan Jovic

WASHINGTON (CNN)— Former President Bill Clinton commanded the largest speaking fees of his career in 2011, earning $13.4 million and exceeding his previous record by 25%.

Clinton’s fees were detailed in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s annual financial disclosure report, released Monday. A CNN analysis of those records shows that the former commander-in-chief has earned $89 million from paid speeches since leaving the White House in January 2001.

While it is not unusual for former presidents to command millions of dollars in speaking fees after leaving office, Clinton is the only one subjected to strict disclosure requirements as a result of his wife’s position as a high-ranking federal official, first as a U.S. senator and now as secretary of state.
“The work he does around the world has given him a very unique perspective. Not just a former president’s perspective, but also the very unique perspective from his philanthropic work,” said Norman Stowe, a communications executive in Vancouver, British Columbia, who organized an economic conference with both Clinton and George W. Bush last October.“He’s really a gifted speaker. He speaks in a language that everyone can understand.”

Clinton delivered 54 paid speeches in 2011, roughly the same as his 2010 workload, but the marked increase in income can be credited to six overseas events that earned him the largest single paydays of his career.

The most lucrative was a November speech in Hong Kong to Swedish-based telecom giant Ericsson —$750,000. Clinton also earned $700,000 for a March speech to a local newspaper publishing company in Lagos, Nigeria, and $550,000 for a November speech to a business forum in Shanghai, China. He earned $500,000 apiece for three events in Austria and Holland in May and in the United Arab Emirates in December.

Prior to 2011, the most Clinton had earned from a single event was $525,000 for a 2008 speech in Edmonton, Alberta.

The former president’s previous record for speech income earned in one year was in 2010, when he earned $10.7 million for 52 events. His speech earnings last year were nearly double the $7.5 million he earned in 2009.
Almost half of the former president’s speech income last year,$6.1 million, came from 16 speeches delivered in 11 other countries, ranging from Canada to Saudi Arabia. The remainder was earned in 38 domestic speeches delivered in nine states and the District of Columbia.

This says it all:

(CNN)- Mitt Romney said the federal health care reform mandate constitutes a "tax" Wednesday, contradicting the way a senior adviser to his campaign characterized his position earlier this week.

But the similar individual mandate and fee he signed into law when governor of Massachusetts is not a tax, he said in a separate interview, citing the Supreme Court's decision last Thursday.

How dreadful. Now do tell, how many times has the DumBama administration called it a penalty one day and a tax the other day?

I believe it was the court that said that the mandate was authorized by Congress' power to tax. I haven't heard Obama say he considered it a tax.

His own Justice Department asserted that argument in its briefs before the Courts, otherwise, the Courts never would have raised it.

So, in other words, this is just your useless opinion with no analysis or data to support it. Gee, thanks for sharing.
exit polls are the only polls with real truth behind them.

if you want to waste time wiith all the current BS polls.....Obama lost.

In November history will record the 2012 election as the largest landslide ever recorded; and an end of the liberal takeover.

my opinion is a majority one; and yours a minority.

your orfice is already burning.

Let's assume your premise.

No tax under 250K. If you make, let's say 100K, and you choose not to insure yourself, than that's your fault if your "taxes" go up. What's the big deal if a scofflaw chooses to pay the penalty?

Once again, simply not true. Unless you mean for years the soldiers have been caring guns.
