Tom Ridge, who is a great American, just endorsed John Kasich. Does not hurt Donald Trump, but does Marco Rubio. The throat shot was when Secretary/Governor Ridge said, "Marco is a very capable YOUNG man and would make a good Vice President." i.e., Marco's a bright young(ish) man, but he lacks the depth of experience required for the job at this point in American history. Ridge is right to say that Kasich outclasses Rubio by a mile, as a seasoned leader and Chief Executive, regardless of how articulately and brightly Rubio speaks in controlled environments. Of note, when Donald called Tom Ridge a "failed Pennsylvania" Governor, he may have chose different words, but, again, what is he supposed to say when Ridge, unprovoked, calls Trump an "embarrassment" to the country. So, in Donald's defense, he was (again) counter-striking against some pretty nasty comments from Ridge. However, in defense of Ridge (I can do this; it's MY website), the former Secretary of Homeland Security did not ask Trump for handouts, thus was not hypocritical when he took a swipe at Donald. Ridge was just saying what he felt. Unlike some politicians pimping to donors like Johns, Tom Ridge did not take Trump's money one year, then turn on him the next, as was the case with the hypocrite Graham, who mooched Donald for his money when feeling righteously entitled to run for reelection, but somehow wished Donald to the ultimate ugliness when the tricks wore off. Yeah, he used the words "Donald Trump can go to Hell!" Actual Hell! Isn't Graham a Baptist or something? I've never known an actual Baptist (and I live in the South) to wish eternal damnation on another's soul, but then I'm not a career politician or U.S. Senator endowed with such authority by our Creator. Anyway, yes; Lindsey "Milquetoast" Graham took $12,400 of Trump's money in October of 2014, then said that Trump could go "straight to hell" barely two years later! Can I get a WTF from over there? To me, Graham comes up looking like one of the ice cold, suffering souls beneath Lago D'Averno in Dante's Inferno, and Jeb, a practicing Catholic should have thought twice before accepting the endorsement of a man who can look straight into a national television camera and wish someone to (actual) eternal damnation in Hell, especially for the sake of the temporal expediency and nastiness of a Presidential campaign. In contrast, Tom Ridge is one of the finest public servants of the past 30 years. He was a hero who didn't get caught, too, Donald (looking over the top of my eyeglass frames in headmasterly fashion). I like Kasich a lot, too, and he is a very capable man with serious legislative and executive leadership experience. But, he can't win. So, following on Tom Ridge's lead, if I'm Bush, I'm thinking, "I'll follow Ridge's lead and endorse Kasich, rather than Rubio who stabbed me in the back and got annoyed with me because I was pissed about it! At least Donald squared off and popped me right in the nose, like a man. I needed Marco and he not only abandoned me on the plain, he turned around, came back, and took the first couple of bites out of my wounded carcass." I can't see Jeb endorsing Donald until the Primaries are over. But, I'm curious to see what he does with Rubio. If he throws in with Marco, my thoughts are, "Come on, Jeb! Where's your pride, man? This guy screwed you and now you reward him? Reward your fellow Republican Governor, John Kasich, who at least won't drop the pieces of silver you gave him into a sock, whop you over the head with them, and expect you to tell him how wonderful he is for doing so.
