ERICK ERICKSON That was one of the most amazing parts of the CBS Debate and Cruz at his finest.

WASHINGTON TIMES Tensions are rising in the wake of federal busybodies who are making such pests of themselves that land, and who owns it, is becoming a hot-button issue west of the Rockies.

MCCLATCHY DC Inside the Sunshine Coin Laundry near the Piggly Wiggly supermarket, Lagretta Ellington removed her family's clothes from one of the large dryers and began to neatly fold them on a nearby table. The air was moist and smelled of detergent. The floor was concrete. Her views of the presidential race were anything but. She was unsettled, and distrustful. The candidates just seemed like entertainers.... (more)

WESLEY PRUDEN Harry Reid is the majority bumpkin of the U.S. Senate, vying with the vice president to say weird, goofy, sometimes amusing and often embarrassing things. His Democratic colleagues typically chuckle, roll their eyes, and put it down to ol' Harry just being old Harry. (He's only 78, but in his case, 78 is the new 90.) Long-suffering aides shrug at his bellicose ad-libs and call it "just Harry getting out ahead of his skis."... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and a group of House lawmakers are building a case for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder. "Impeding justice is intolerable and he should not be permitted to refuse the American people a true investigation into the actions of those who used the machinery of government to target, intimate, and silence them for politically driven reasons," Cruz said during a June 26 floor speech...

PJ MEDIA On Monday night, the Republican Party gave the first victory of 2016 to the first Hispanic candidate for president of the United States, Ted Cruz. Sen. Cruz won for many reasons: his outsider appeal, disciplined message, and sophisticated get-out-the-vote operation. But after two trips to Iowa to volunteer for Cruz, I noticed something else about the Cruz campaign that probably made a difference.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama's ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a "fireside" Web chat that his "is the most transparent administration in history." There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it... (more)

RICK PERRY President Obama's appropriations request only deals with one aspect of the current crisis on our southern border, while barely addressing its root cause: an unsecured border. Of the $3.7 billion in President Obama's request, only $68.4 million -- or 1.8% -- is directly dedicated to border security efforts, which are absolutely essential to resolving this crisis, and avoiding more such crises in the future...
