“Jeb Bush’s noncampaign campaign honesty problem”

Adam Smith:

Put aside the legitimate questions about how Bush is skirting campaign finance laws – or breaking them, as some experts allege. How about that quaint notion that candidates for America’s highest office ought to tell the truth?

Does anyone actually believe Jeb Bush has not decided he is running for president? Perhaps that was the case in January, as he was just beginning to meet with donors and voters and reporters and had not yet seen how he would be received, how it would feel on the campaign trail. That no longer holds water, and it hasn’t for a long time.
