Jeb Bush: Keepin' it real, $1 million at a time

By Richard K. Barry

My favourite story in the political press yesterday was about how Jeb Bush is instructing his donors not to give more then $1 million right away.

The Washington Post reported:
The requested limit, confirmed by multiple people familiar with the amount, may mark the first time that a presidential hopeful has sought to hold off supporters from contributing too much money.

The move reflects concerns among Bush advisers that accepting massive sums from a handful of uber-rich supporters could fuel a perception that the former governor is in their debt.

Here's some advice, Jeb. You're not going to fool anybody. Should you succeed, against all odds, to win the nomination or the presidency, there will not be a voter in America who doubts you have been bought and paid for. 

And another thing, most Americans, not the people you usually hang with, consider $1 million a lot of money.
