    So Iran is threatening the US over the nuclear deal. Guess they needed few more pallets of cash.

    Just wondering why Biden isn't catching flack for not helping the people in Texas? If Trump was president, the media would be all over him for not doing anything or trying to send help.

    He is. Even AOC, at last count had raised $1 million and was sending it to Texans as Ted Cruz was drooling over his daughters friend in Cancun.

    So, I'll wade into the Ted Cruz pool...

    Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is... Hear me out.

    Yes the media wants to paint him as a leader 'abandoning ship' when his constituents are in need... OK, but:

    -now conflicting stories whether it was his daughter or wife...(maybe both) the reason he went to Cancun... Does it matter, if you're a father of young (<20yo) daughters or your wife? Your locked in a likely crappy situation and have the means to buy yourself some relief?

    -He's a Fed Senator. Power for TX is a state issue. So, constitionally, out for fed enumerated powers/scope.

    -But there is a national disaster? A) State Governor needs to declare disaster (done 2/14) B) Fema needs to respond c) Fema is under US Homeland Security, which falls under which branch of the Gov? (hint not judicial and not legislative; that's right Executive, good job).

    So wtf do you expect from a wealthy GOP senator?

    IMHO another Dem & media drive by/smear campaign, (not unity) division (party, family, wealth)...

    So, remind me why I care?

    And more importantly, why do sleepy Joe catching hell for playing video games at Camp David the day after the disaster was declared?!
