Conservative Texas lieutenant governor affirms American support for Israel during visit to ‘Post’

One of America’s preeminent conservative politicians told The Jerusalem Post Sunday that the people of the United States support an aggressive, pro-Israel foreign policy even if its administration does not.

“Our system in the United States, even though it’s a delayed golf swing, has to be responsive to where the people are,” said Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a 12-year veteran of the job with an extensive background in intelligence. “And the people in the United States want a more proactive foreign policy.”

“Although this administration is obviously in charge from a foreign policy point of view,” he said in an interview at the Post’s office that Israelis should “not misjudge where the American people are based on this administration.”
