    “Damn You **insert name *** is extreme language that has not escaped it’s biblical origins-

    “To condemn to hell ” /’eternal damnation’

    As I recall Ryan is Catholic & this would be very offensive & hurtful.

    How is this praise?

    Even in civil terms it is very ruinous & has been in our society for over 450 years.

    Not surprised Ryan did not run with admirers like that .

    Look, I love Ryan, he is great. But being sharp on policy isn’t the first qualification to be President. Like Santorum, with his resume he wouldn’t even get an interview for the CEO job at a mid-cap company. No executive experience. Ryan needs to do his job – we need people like him doing it – and build his resume, perhaps run for Governor of WI after Walker, and then with some administrative experience under his belt, he will make a great President one day. Same goes for Rubio.

    The United States federal government is the largest operation in the world, with a budget greater than the entire economy of every country in the world except for Japan and China. This isn’t some game. People who have no executive experience do not do well; those with some tend to do better. There’s a reason we often elect Governors and Generals and only rarely Senators or Representatives.

    It makes no sense to push good people into jobs far over their pay grade and experience. Usually you just ruin them and have lousy results.

    All members of Congress secretly see themselves as Presidential material. As long as they keep it to themselves, they don’t hurt anybody.

    […] Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion: “Damn you for not running” […]
