Ouch! Jeb!'s 3 Delegates Cost $50 Million a Pop, No Wonder He's Mad at Trump

Jeb Bush's three delegates at the Republican National Convention cost him and his campaign around $50 million each

After being the 'hands down' favorite to win the Republican primary with an unlimited bank account supporting him, Bush ended up spending all the money his donors had fundraised and losing the election in miserable fashion.

Ever since, Jeb and the entire Bush family have been extremely negative and reluctant to support the Republican nominee.  In May, (politically correct) Bush criticized Trump for eating a taco salad.  

“What Trump did was so insensitive,” Bush told Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.  "First, not all Hispanics are Mexican," he declared. 

Earlier in the campaign year, Jeb was kicked out of a rotary club meeting just before losing in New Hampshire where he gained three delegates.  

As late as January, Jeb was declaring himself second place behind the eventual nominee telling Fox News that "you gotta believe in this."

Newt Gingrich said that Bush was behaving childishly in his absence from the convention and that he needs to get over it.  

Hopefully this highlights the problem with the Establishment. When it comes to establishment spending, there are no limits. That tactic works when you are winning. But when you spend more than your opponent and still lose, it raises questions about your competence.
