Maybe she was bending overboard trying to be truthful without appearing to be an extremist. She may have a few “questions” about government involvement or negligence re. 9-11 and hasn’t really researched the matter very much. She is, as she stated, running for a state position, not federal, so does 9-11 conspiracy theory really make that much difference in her case?
If she really feels some sympathy for trutherism she might have said something like “there are still some people who question whether the Roosevelt administration had advance knowledge of the Pearl Harbor attack and questioning things is not un-American” but instead she turned into a motor mouth trying to make excuses fr herself.
She’s not a smoothie, that’s for sure, but who wants that type of politician anymore? She may have some kookie ideas but she believes in conservative government and seems to dislike lying, so I have a hard time condemning the lady for what she said to Beck.
Beck, BTW, keeps saying that he was not going to endorse candidates but he sure did his best to end Ms. Medina’s chances. Plus he talked down Kay Bailey Hutchinson (”not impressed”) and built up Rick Perry.
I’m not condemning her, except to say that in the media drenched culture in which politics occurs today, she needs to understand how to do an interview. I agree that she was a motormouth in the interview, and as I mentioned before, she needs to learn how to listen when doing an interview.
I think Beck went into the interview a dedicated Perry supporter. Beck just doesn’t understand how disconnected the rugged looking, conservative sounding Perry that Beck has been around is from the semi-RINO governor that Perry actually is. Perry is kind of like the oranges in the supermarket that have been dyed to conceal the fact that they were picked when not ripe. Tree-riped fruit without dye doesn’t sell so well even though it tastes better because it doesn’t “look pretty.” That, unfortunately, is a metaphor for our political culture, even among conservatives.
