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.

With deadline looming, Obama to again push infrastructure

Washington (CNN) — Once again using some of the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure as his backdrop, President Barack Obama this week plans to pressure lawmakers into finding a way to keep money flowing to road and bridge projects before funding dries up next month.

It’s a message he’s pushed in front of crumbling bridges and at the White House since the beginning of the summer, often using the issue to blast Republicans on Capitol Hill, who he said could be responsible for massive layoffs and stalled projects should a plan to replenish the Highway Trust Fund not materialize before next month.
