2016 jab: Perry says Ted Cruz’s name ‘not once’ mentioned during Israel, London trip

October 21, 2013

Rick Perry-Ted Cruz
In another early sign that the 2016 Republican presidential nomination field may be crowded with big-name contenders, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in Israel — again.

The longest-serving governor in Texas history was in Israel on Sunday, traveling with Houston businessman and former U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council Chairman Fred S. Zeidman, to set the stage for the opening of the Nazareth campus of Texas A&M University, he said.

Mr. Perry, who arrived in Israel after visiting London for a plaque dedication, told The Washington Times in a phone interview from Jerusalem that the government shutdown was “political theater” that wasn’t casting a pall over his trip abroad. Not one British or Israeli government official has mentioned Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas as the party’s face or complained that the U.S. suffered a black eye as a result of the 17-day government shutdown, he said.

“The United States’ reputation in Israel wasn’t affected by the shutdown, because the Israelis understand that from time to time politicians in a democracy engage in political theater, which is what the shutdown was,” he said.

He said the same held true in London, from what he could tell in his brief visit before flying on to Tel Aviv.
