Medina responds to Glenn Beck questions
TheCypressTimes.com ^ | 02/11/2010 | Debra Medina

Posted on 02/11/2010 10:52:12 AM PST by Patriot1259

I was asked a question on the Glenn Beck show today regarding my thoughts on the so-called 9/11 truth movement. I have never been involved with the 9-11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way....

She seems to be blaming Beck for asking the question.

Medina dug herself into a hole and now she continues to dig.

I just listened to her interview with Glenn. If this response to her appearance on his show was what she really believed, then WHY DIDN’T SHE JUST SAY THAT?!

Look, I’m not in Texas and I have no dog in this fight but she should have just stated this answer the first time.

So believing that our government could have had a part in the 9/11 attacks makes a person a nut and not a viable Tea Party candidate?

Then why the hell didn't she say that instead of talking over Beck and hemming/hawing around the question? She's not ready for prime time no matter how much you spin it for her......

BECK - MEDINA Truther Exchange

The above You Tube is 4 minutes in duration and one can hear her response which isn't a denial.

Why? Van Jones and Rosie are left-wing nuts who hate George Bush and thus blame 9/11 on him. However, I don’t hate George Bush (I don’t particularly like him although I voted for him twice) but have seen some very credible evidence that our government was complicit in the 9/11 attacks.

My point was, just because the left hijacks an issue doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. In the past and present, governments around the globe, have been known to carry out atrocities against their citizens. Why would the United States be immune to evil?

What is odd with my posts? I am reading the news and posting things I find of interest. If you don’t like what I’m posting, be my guest not to read my stuff. Why can’t there be humane dialogue on this site? It seems like when people disagree on here, the suspicion mounts and the tarring and feathering begins.

I believe her now. I just think she wasn’t smart enough or quick enough to figure out the answer to a simple question on Beck’s show.

Not sure whether that will make her more, or less, qualified to those who support her, some of which appear to be 9/11 truthers themselves.

But it doesn’t seem to be a good thing either way.

I, too, listened to her interview today. Beck asked some of these odd questions to flush out what she really believes. After listening to the interview and her circling questions without answering them, I concluded that she is not ready for prime time and anyone who thinks she is equiped to be governor of Texas is sadly mistaken.

Yesterday on another thread someone called her "Sarah Palin without the wink". Sorry, folks, she's not even in the same universe with Palin.

I haven't disagreed with you yet, I might agree or disagree with you once you post your credible evidence that our Gov had a hand in the making of the twin towers being destroyed and an estimated 3,000 of our countrymen and women died.

You have to understand that for some Tea Party folk, you have to be 100% hard core fundamentalist, pro-life, no-tax, kick-out all immigrants, all Muslims are bad, God-fearing, George Bush-loving, quad.50-owning, Sarah Palin-worshipping registered Republican. Anything just a little bit less than that and you’re just a left wing pinko RINO commie and you’re not invited. There’s no in-between. (The reverse goes for the left wing nut jobs who have hijacked the Democratic party).

Suiting up now. Flame on...

The US is not immune to evil. But there is no credible evidence that the US purposefully had anything to do with 9/11.

If your argument is that the government could have done things to prevent it, that’s not “truther”, that’s just the truth, but is beside the point.

If you truly believe that the government, any part of the government, was part of a plot to help muslims hijack planes and kill thousands of Americans, and you further believe that Bush administration covered this up, you need to present evidence that doesn’t exist.

It certainly isn’t rational to believe — 9/11 is one of the most highly investigated events of my lifetime, so you’d need a gargantuan conspiracy to cover up government involvement.

No, I think it’s that the tea-party folks, who organized in support of limited government, tax cuts, and slashing government spending, don’t want their movement taken over by fanatics, idiots, and conspiracy theorists.

I don't. She answered honest and didn't expect this backlash. The truther stuff is why she was asked to the show. She had plenty of time to prepare.

One could argue that the government was complicit by dereliction of duty. Its failure to fully prosecute a war against an organization that had already declared war on us lead to our vulnerability, and gave AQ a strong hand to play, which they did to full effect on September 11th.

Does that mean the government was active in planning, financing, and execution of that attack, of course not.

And all of the hokum justifications presented by the truthers could have been brought about by other methods, or even the simple fact that larger nations are always taking potshots at weedy ones. There wasn't really a need to murder 3,500 citizens to either invade Iraq or invade Afghanistan.

It is not unheard of. For example, it is widely known that our government committed mass sterilizations of people deemed “unfit” to reproduce. They also deliberately gave pregnant women radioactive iron tablets to see what would happen. However, to think they had something to do with 911 is preposterous.

Sorry, chief ... no do-overs. It was a simple question with a simple answer — “no”. Any sensible person would’ve said “no”, and moved on.

The fact that you didn’t say “no” means you likely lend credence to “truther” movement, and, even if you don’t, the fact that you weren’t bright enough to say “no” means you’re not bright enough for my vote.

Rick Perry will be getting my support — Debra Medina will receive no further consideration, and nothing she can say will change my mind.
