WASHINGTON - To some conservative Jews, Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make an excellent presidential candidate. He’s been to Israel more than any other candidate in the field and has said he loves it. And Perry creates jobs.That last line really should have been "mission from Jesus". I think, though I'm willing to be convinced otherwise that as a whole we would not have a problem with anyone believing they are on a mission from God, so long as: they don't claim God actually spoke to them, and more importantly, it is the Jewish god giving out the missions, and not some other deity.
But other Jewish conservatives seeking the anti-Obama candidate look at the three-term governor and see something arresting: He believes he’s on a mission from God.
