Skip to comments.The Glenn Beck/Debra Medina Sucker Punch
Posted on 02/15/2010 9:21:06 AM PST by pissant
Lets say I had a television show and I asked a political candidate some questions regarding, lets say, about the other entrenched lifer candidates, local issues, state and federal issues, the Constitution, and then asked if he or she believed Babe Ruth was really black or if Barack Obama was really a United States citizen or if there was a 9/11 conspiracy.
Lets say an answer was given I didnt like. Would that alone disqualify me from holding public office?
I will admit, I did like some of the things Becks said over the last year on Fox News and previous years on radio, but he may have just shown us just how full of himself he really is.
Personally, Id like to see some new blood running Texas. Rick Perry straddled the bonehead fence when he started talking about secession, Kay Bailey Hutchinson appears to feel shes entitled to the governorship after many flaky years in the US Senate.
And while were at it, lets talk conspiracy.
Sarah Palin is now a Beck compadre at Fox News. Sarah Palin endorsed Rick Perry. Debra Medina was surging in the polls. Beck throws a beanball at Medina in an attempt to knock her out of the race. How ironic it would be that liberals could use a Glenn Beck audio clip to take out a Republican.
Ive already made my views (then doubts) about Beck known when I saw him pandering to black Republicans on a weekend show, complete with jungle-looking graphics, trying to come off as a potential savior who understands. Ive never bought his crying like a pussy, and Ive rejected every attempt hes made to make himself a 9/12, tea party grand poohbah.

“Personally, Id like to see some new blood running Texas.”
So would I but is it wrong to make sure that that person is not out of their alleged mind?
See the debates. She more than holds her own against the RINOs. So even a “crazy” person is better, especially if she didn’t say she was a “truther”, and since she’s not.
Good article and good post. I’ve long wondered if the kingmakers on the GOP side aren’t totally sold out to the same socialist, globalist tyrants who more openly run the Dems. When push comes to shove, they sure do act like it sometimes, and hit pieces and ambushes like the stunt Glenn Beck pulled on Medina are just a little TOO convenient for the establishment, IMO. That being said, I like Perry.
The Republicans of Texas deserve to know if a Governor candidate is a loon, and Debra Medina is a loon.
A beanball?? What a freaking whiner.
He asked her if she thought the government orchestrated the 911 attacks. That's called a meatball, right down the middle of the plate. Anybody who isn't an idiot should be able to knock that one right out of the stadium with a single word response.
The question, and Medina’s qualifying, backpedaling answer still stands as exposing the “truther” aspect. Perry and Hutchison are a battle of “pals of the elite” and do not properly address illegals, but a potential governor, who needs the help of ICE and Border would have a difficult time in communication alone, if they believe the Feds were behind 9/11. Her answer did not elucidate, and is a test of ability to think on her feet. The later “statement” was made out of damage control- not a real answer. Libertarians as conservatives are valid partners-but not as foolish truthers. The truthers were started by Hillary’s people, remember? There is certainly no conservatism there. While we’re on the subject, who was behind the bombinf of the Murrah federal building Hillary? Ask Bill who blamed talk radio. The Democratic/Perot politics in Texas are yet another part of the mosaic of individualists. Would that Medina was a Tancredo conservative.
I mean it's not like Beck asked her a question that reasonable people can disagree on. It was about the US gov't orchestrating 9/11!
As Howard Dean once said, "YEEEEAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!"
>> Lets say an answer was given I didnt like. Would that alone disqualify me from holding public office?
Depends on the question to which the wrong answer was given ... if it was the 9/11-inside-job question ... then yes.
New blood in Texas is less important than keeping the certifiably wacko out of office altogether. Beck did Texas, the GOP and the Tea Party movement a great service.
Yet she didn’t say 911 was an inside job.
She said she was withholding judgment on whether 9/11 was an inside job ... that’s still the wrong answer.
“What a stupid men.”
“What a stupid man.”
“See the debates. She more than holds her own against the RINOs. So even a crazy person is better, especially if she didnt say she was a truther, and since shes not.”
Unless the question had been asked, no one would have known for sure. There is nothing wrong with asking tough questions of those seeking power.
Then she clarified. Her questions were with regardss to the worthless 911 report, heavily redacted, mind you. The same report that did not address Able Danger in any serious manner and did not address the Gorelick Wall.
I agree. I don’t have any problesm with the question. Nor her answer, after she clarified what she believes.
Her clarification was unsatisfactory. It was a political backpedal by a political campaign that had torpedoed itself. You’d have never bought such a “statement” by Van Jones ... why buy it from Medina?
And, she’s reiterated her “concerns” since the half-assed “statement” (see the ABC interview and various appearances on Alex Jones’s show). She’s a nut.
