Glenn Beck Sucker Punches Texas Candidate Debra Medina
JohnJacobH RKBA Commentary ^ | 02/11/10 | JohnJacobH RKBA Commentary

Like the true gentleman he is, The Welshman from the Liberty Sphere CLICK LINK HERE comes to the aid of a lady in distress. Kudos to him!

There is something squirrely about the whole Glenn Beck phenomenon and it maybe time to examine this so- called conservative who sheds crocodile tears on Television and surrounds himself with a radio pack of wannabe Howard Stern Hyenas.

I heard part of this interview live this morning, Glenn Beck was not at his best.

Best regards to all,

With all due respect, she sucker punched herself - and I’ll still vote for her.

I heard it, he wasn’t grilling her. Her answer sunk her.

Bad article, it makes a claim, but doesn't quote either
Beck Or Medina. From what I heard, it was a simple yes or no answer, she choose not to answer it with a simple no, leaving the door open to label her a truther.
IMHO truthers are full fledged nuts...

Here’s part of the interview. She did a horrible job and Glenn, as usual, was hilarious.

It was a legitimate question.

She obviously wasn’t prepared for it.

She shouldn’t try to explain anything, just say NO.

I dunno if she can regain what she loses from this.

Glenn couldn’t believe the answer he got.

He asked her a simple question. She just blew it herself.
There was no sucker punch from anybody.

We’ve got to know everything there is to know in order to make choices.

That’s what media is supposed to do for us — expose it all.

We’re empowering representatives to make decisions in our name.

Let’s hear it all.

Better now than later by the other side.

Transcript of interview:

GLENN: I have when I said that I was going to have you on, you can't imagine the mail pro and con that I received. There was a theme that ran against you and that is you are a 9/11 Truther.

MEDINA: Well, there's lots of mud that people would like to throw at Debra Medina and make stick. The truth is I'm an everyday ordinary person. I am fighting for the things that our founders fought for, those very basic principles of a constitutional republic, and I'm going to champion people that hold their government accountable, hold me accountable but that's the first time I've heard that accusation. So that's an interesting one.

GLENN: Right. Here's then let me be more frank and ask you the question: Do you believe the government was any way involved with the bringing down of the World Trade Centers on 9/11?

MEDINA: I don't, I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn. So I don't I'm not in a place, I have not been out publicly questioning that. I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard. There are some very good arguments, and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence there. So I've not taken a position on that.

GLENN: I think the people of America might think that might be a yes.

MEDINA: Well

If you could call it an answer. She just starting blabbering...we all have bad moments. I guess this was hers, and it has probably sunk her ship.

The source to this article has links on their blog.
One is the anti war, 9/11 Truther Lew Rockwell.
It really piles up for Medina.
She thought she could fool the voters she was a Republican
but is a Truther Libertarian in RINO clothes.

It was hilarious! He kept trying to tell her she answered the question already - trying to save her from herself. Then, the post interview commentary was beautiful. I grew up the first part of my life in Texas, but I’d hate to have to choose between the two RINO leaning front runners and the nutball she seemed to be. I’m now a Florida voter and the choice is clear in our hotbed election - Rubio over RINO Crist.

That doesn’t read like a sucker punch.

Medina’s answer was the dumbest mistake since Mccain canceled his campaign to go to Washington only to end up voting for the bailout.

The sources site also links FR as a "message board." What's with that?

I posted this comment on another thread and I'm going to post it again here.

Her hesitation to answer one way or the other makes me think she was quickly reviewing in her mind all of her previous statements on the subject to weigh whether or not those statements could be held against her.

If you have to pause to think about what you've said previously and whether or not it can be used against you, then you are probably lying. That's my gut feeling on this one.

I just don't think she went into an interview with Glen Beck ill-prepared. She shined in the debates. She was prepared and focused. There's no way this was an off-the-cuff mistake. She hesitated because she knew she'd said something to someone that could hurt her politically.
