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.”
