Talk about out of touch.

Hillary Clinton hasn't gotten behind the wheel in a long, long time.

The former first lady and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, who has had drivers for much of her three decades in public life, said Monday that she hasn't driven a car since 1996. Clinton made the confession at the National Automobile Dealers Association meeting in New Orleans.

“The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996,” the 66-year-old Clinton told the audience. “And I remember it very well, and so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven’t driven since then.”

Clinton also revealed: “I’ve always enjoyed stories about cars and adventure. And I have to confess that one of the greatest disappointments about my public life is that I cannot drive anymore. And my husband thinks that’s a blessing. But he’s the one who should talk.”

While Clinton was being frank with her audience, the moment could easily become the stuff of Republican ads should she choose to run in 2016. Mitt Romney was hammered in 2012 for allegedly "out of touch" comments, including one where he said he doesn't follow NASCAR closely, but has "great friends who are NASCAR team owners."

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.

HILLARY'S TOP 7 ELITIST MOMENTS


7. The Military Uniform Ban. According to Lieutenant Colonel Buzz Patterson, the man who carried President Clinton’s nuclear football from 1996 to 1998, “Hillary did try to ban military uniforms in the White House and we objected for national security reasons…She relented only on the one point of those who were responsible for carrying the nuclear football. Other than that, military uniforms were not worn in the White House per Hillary's directive issued down through the staff.”

6. Gas Station Indians. “I love this quote. It’s from Mahatma Gandhi. He ran a gas station down in St. Louis for a couple of years. Mr. Gandhi, do you still go to the gas station? A lot of wisdom comes out of that gas station,” she said at a 2004 fundraiser.

5. Allegedly Forcing Secret Service to Carry Her Bags. According to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, he saw a Secret Service agent carrying around her bags in 2001. “Secret Service guys all around with those little ear phones and one large guy, rather embarrassed, rather sheepish, walking along with his own ear phones carrying her bags. Who -- who in the Senate gets a Sherpa to carry their bags for them?.... I've never heard of a senator having a bag carrier.” Ronald Kessler wrote in A Matter of Character, “Secret Service agents assigned at various points to guard Hillary during her campaign for the Senate were dismayed at how two-faced and unbalanced she was.”

4. Abusing an Electrician. Here’s Kessler regarding Hillary’s tenure in the White House: “When Hillary found a hapless White House electrician changing a lightbulb in the residence, she began screaming at him because she had ordered that all repair work was to be done when the First Family was out.”

3. Not Exactly Showing Sympathy for the Homeless. According to Tom Kuiper’s I’ve Always Been a Yankees Fan, Hillary confronted a homeless man in 2000. She said, “My name is Hillary Clinton. You going to vote in the primary?” He said yes, but that he needed money for food. A Clinton staffer gave him a voter registration card instead. When she stumbled on another homeless person during the same campaign, she asked if he would vote. He said he was homeless. Her reply: “Well, good for you.”
2. Talking to Eleanor Roosevelt…But Not Jesus. According to Bob Woodward’s book, The Choice, Hillary used to chat with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi via Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research. Houston inspired Hillary to write It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us and reportedly moved into the White House to help out. When asked if she wanted to address Jesus, however, she said it would be “too personal.”

1. “What Difference…Does It Make?” Her dramatic lack of sympathy for the victims of the Benghazi attack – and her own attempts to avoid culpability – continue until today. She calls it the worst moment of her tenure as Secretary of State but refuses to explain what she did wrong…or, indeed, what she did at all.
Hillary’s worst enemy in 2016 will be herself. She is no woman of the people. She is, according to a vast swath of those who have written about her, a woman concerned mainly with herself. To become president, she'll need to recast her personality, not just her politics.

you're spending alot of energy sounding like Obama supporters in the 2008 elections now cashcow...

there ain't many folk who have the credentials to run the country AND are "in touch" with us normal people (yeah i know, i ain't really normal, and it's not really a good thang)-

none of this is new or even shocking. look at Christie for crying out loud... his people thought closing the bridge for "normal people" was OK? that's out of touch too ain't it?

this Governor in MD sounds like a decent type...

I always thought Gary Johnson should have won, but oh well. Wonder who they will have for 2016. Walker fixed up Wisconsin rather well, wonder if he could do the same on the federal level.

I wish a lot more people would have the sense to stay off the road, rather than be a hasard on the road to everyone else.

Drive in Ca. and you will get my point.

Even better, drive around the areas of leisure world,(retirement community) or Little Vietnam, you will even get the point better, if your not in accident.
