Perry vs. Paul: Round two

(CNN) - Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is firing back at Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, in an escalation of a war of words between two potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders over U.S. foreign policy and the country's role in the bloody outbreak of fighting in Iraq.

"There are many things I like about Texas Gov. Rick Perry, including his stance on the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. But apparently his new glasses haven’t altered his perception of the world, or allowed him to see it any more clearly," Paul wrote in an op-ed that appeared Monday in Politico, taking aim at the much talked about eye-wear Perry's been sporting since last year.

In the Perry versus Paul feud, McCain avoids picking sides

Washington (CNN) – In the Republican-versus-Republican foreign policy feud between Rick Perry and Rand Paul, whose side does John McCain pick?  The Arizona senator is not interested in stepping into the political crossfire. But that does not mean he won't offer a lecture.

"Sen. Paul is part of a wing of the party that's been there ever since, prior to World War 1, in our Republican Party. And that is a withdrawal to fortress America," McCain told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "I do believe that the things we're seeing in the world today - in greater turmoil than any time in my lifetime - is a direct result of an absence of American leadership.

O'Malley: U.S. shouldn't send immigrant children back to 'certain death'

(CNN) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley advocated for sympathy for the surge of young Central American immigrants flooding the U.S. southern border, arguing that to turn the children away without due process would be un-American given what violence awaits in their home countries.

"We are not a country that should turn children away and send them back to certain death," he told reporters Friday at a National Governors Association meeting in Nashville.
