Rick Perry Wades into Foreign Policy
Governor Rick Perry has told reporters he's too busy with the legislative session to think about running for the presidency, but luckily -- news flash!! -- the legislative session is dealing with American foreign policy. Apparently.
Perry's office issued an official statement in the wake of President Obama's speech on the Middle East.
Perry's statement is brief, but it does contain one classic line:
As someone who has visited Israel numerous times, I know that that it is impracticable to revert to the 1967 lines.
Talk about your bona fides!!

We can only assume Perry stayed in a Holiday Inn Express in the Holy Land.
Here is Perry's statement, in toto:
President Obama's speech today continues a misguided policy of alienating our traditional allies, in this case Israel, one of our strongest partners in the war on terror. As someone who has visited Israel numerous times, I know that that it is impracticable to revert to the 1967 lines. President Obama is asking our Israeli friends to give up too much security and territory as a prelude to a renewed peace process.
