Jeb! Bush and "Campaigning In Style"

Alternate title:

How Jeb! literally burned through a massive, gargantuan wad of donated cash, only to end up being the biggest loser of this campaign. 

How much bad advice can one Bush receive?

(On second thought, don't answer that *cough cough James "F&ck The Jews" Baker, cough cough*)

And what is the top dollar price for that craptacular advice? Because nothing but the most expensive worst advice will do!

To wit: "the Bush camp has spent more on staff and consultants than any of the leading candidates. Starting roughly in the spring, Bush paid out about $8 million. Cruz spent just $2 million; Rubio, just under $2 million; and Trump, $1.7 million."
How bad can the optics be while paying lip service to identifying with regular Americans?

This bad:

"There were stays at boutique hotels featuring rooftop pools, private soirees at members-only, jacket-and-tie clubs and fundraisers at the Four Seasons, the St. Regis and the Mandarin Oriental."

"In the world of Jeb Bush, the campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination has at times been a whirl of private planes and high-end affairs, according to the federal filings of Bush’s campaign and his Super PAC, Right to Rise, which can raise unlimited funds for Bush as long as it does not coordinate directly with him."
