Christie body slams Paul on NSA spying: He's made America 'more vulnerable to attack'
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie repeatedly blasted Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on "Fox News Sunday," calling Paul's efforts to end bulk data collection on Americans "wrong" and done "to make a political point" that has "made America weaker and more vulnerable."
Paul is "politicizing America's national security," charged Christie, who appeared visibly angry as he spat out the word "wrong" to repeatedly characterize Paul's efforts to dismantle sections of the Patriot Act that allow surveillance on Americans without a warrant.
Sanders: The majority of gun owners are responsible and obey the law
Vermont liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that the majority of gun owners are responsible and obey the law and that a gun manufacturer should be no more responsible for a murder performed by their product than a hammer manufacturer is responsible "if someone beat someone over the head with a hammer."
Sanders was taking on detractors who have pointed to a bill he voted for that shields firearms manufacturers from being sued by gun violence victims. Presidential rival Hillary Clinton made reference to this bill in New Hampshire Saturday, saying that it was the "height of irresponsibility not to talk about it."
Congress skeptical of Iran nuclear talks
Several guests across the Sunday news shows criticized a potential nuclear deal with Iran — with the deal riling up several high-profile Republican senators and creating hesitancy among Democrats.
"We've gone from dismantling their program to managing proliferation," said Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on CBS'"Face the Nation."
Corker said it is important for inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities to happen anywhere and at any time. "I think no one trusts Iran," he said.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn't understand the challenges with securing the border from illegal immigrants, said former Texas Gov. Rick Perry in response to the billionaire's recent comments that Perry didn't do enough to secure the border while he was in charge of the state that has a 1,200-mile border with Mexico.
"We surged our law enforcement and National Guard," Perry said while on ABC's "This Week." "Executive experience really matters."
Trump's controversial comments on Mexicans bringing drugs and crime across the border are "offensive," said Perry.
Cruz: Supreme Court justices 'put on an Obama jersey'
Members of the Supreme Court "put on an Obama jersey" when they upheld subsidies for Obamacare and made same sex marriage a Constitutional right Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Sunday.
"In a period of 24 hours, we had two decisions of the Supreme Court where a majority of the justices violated their judicial oaths," said Cruz.
"I believe in democracy and the Constitution, and I think when the Supreme Court violates their oaths and undermines the Constitution, that is a grave threat to our nation," said Cruz, arguing in favor of his recommendation that Supreme Court justices should go through periodic elections.
