Not sure Putin knew that all he had to do was say something nice about Donald, Trump would so easily fall in love with him. I'm thinking Putin is feeling a little uncomfortable and awkward.

I know it's silly. At my age it should take more than a pat on the back to make me so happy.
Yet the rich were still very very rich. Had mansions, servants and yachts. We were easily the most powerful country in the world with the largest middle class ever. That cemented the envy of other countries. Schools worked. Highways and bridges were the best. Our military was strong.

We have often discussed how free speech is rapidly being curtailed on college campuses in the name of fighting intolerance and ill-defined "microaggressions."

When asked about a possible showdown between U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, and Cruz, Cornyn said he is “not going to get involved in any primary races, particularly with my colleagues in the Senate.” He continued, "We'll see what happens, but we've got plenty to worry about between now and November 2016 before we start worrying about November 2018."
As the Tribune’s Patrick Svitek reports, Cornyn’s remarks echo what Cruz said in 2014, when he opted to not comment on primary races and declined to endorse Cornyn during his primary campaign. Although Cruz has not yet commented, Cornyn’s remarks fuel speculation that there may be bad blood between the two men.

Although McCaul hasn't ruled out running in 2018, he said that challenging Cruz wasn’t his top priority.
“In the heat of the moment, you have to decide who is going to hit which person, when, and how hard,” Trump said.CONTINUE READING »
