The Paul/Medina crackpots will be deeply saddened.

Gilchrist endorses the creep who signed the illegal alien in-state tuition abomination?

Bats in the belfry.

Are we so desperate to clean house of 'career politicians' that we jump on the bandwagon of Debra MEDINA, an unknown ex-nurse with zero experience, questionable judgement and loyalties and who worked on the RON PAUL presidential campaign???

Perry leans too far to the left at times for the taste of most of us, but consider this: Texas is in better shape than almost any other state in the union since it's been under Perry's governorship since 2000!

If we're going to kick him out, we'd better be D*MN sure we know just what we're replacing him with!

Just WHO would we replace him with?

Ron paul/truther nutter Medina?

Trecherous Washington RINO Hutchison?*

MUSLIM FAROUK SHAMI?

Or maybe Lib Bill White?

Nominate Medina and we'll surely turn over Texas to White and the 'rats. She CANNOT beat White.

Perhaps in the future a more Conservative candidate will emerge for Texas, but this time around WE HAVE NO CHOICE.

For God's sake, has anybody really looked into her platform- her background? Has this woman even been vetted?

She wants legalized drugs.

She backs gay marriage.

.

She has not spoken to her elderly parents for YEARS. They had to find out she was runing for governor of Texas by reading the newspaper!

http://www.statesman.com/news/texas-politics/medina-hailing-from-beeville-learned-political-skills-on-229907.html?srcTrk=RTR_95609

What does this say about this woman's character?

And rumors are begin to surface about husband Noe's past associations.

Take a look at some of the statements she has made:

"I don't have all of the evidence there, Glenn. I think some very good questions have been raised. In that regard there's some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence there." (When Glen Beck asked her about the 9/11 conspiracy theory)

"It’s a shame isn’t it, that Republicans continue to ignore Hispanics especially here in Texas?’

"Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family?”

"Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture.”

"I believe we too often get into race when it’s immaterial.” (Obummer, is that you?)

I don't believe for one minute Medina's propaganda about wanting to strengthen the border!

La Raza probably has her in their back pocket!

This idea that Beck (or anybody else) sabotaged Medina is absurd. If you can’t answer “did the govt have anything to do with the 9/11 attacks?” you're not be fit to run for dogcatcher.

Glenn Beck has once again helped the tea-party stay in the Republican mainstreamby by weeding out dangerous fringe thinkers like Medina.

Medina is NOT representative of the Tea Party movement. She USED them- latched herself on to them. She’s a hard core Libertarian who has realized that the Libertarian Party will never win anything and that the only possible way to get herself into office is to do what Ron Paul did and wrap herself in the Republican cloak in hopes that it will fool enough of the voters enough of the time. Thank God Glen Beck outed her in time.

Retrieve your sombrero from the ring and go home Senora Medina. You're Texas toast. . .

* REMEMBER THIS,TEXANS:

Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress

“One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchison’s amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.”

Medina’s not fully baked.

Kay’s gone soft after all those years in Washington.

Perry’s the only real option and with that said I’m not completely happy with him over the years either, but.

And Slick RINO Perry was cheering them on. He's an amnesty DISASTER.

If Gilchrist has come to terms with Perry, then I can set his past errors aside — at least for the moment. Medina has proven herself far too unreliable, unrealistic and unprepared for a position like Texas Governor. Kay has NEVER been a Conservative, and coming from Washington to Texas she would NOT be effective or successful as a Governor.

Perry is STILL not an ideal candidate. He STILL must have solid Tea Party Conservatives looking over his shoulder, ready to set him straight if he acts a fool and goes off the rails again. But he’s the BEST Texas has to choose from under the circumstances. And he’s seen the Tea Parties first hand. That’s enough to keep him in line for now. Kay could care less, and Medina is using them as a prop.

Thanks to Gilchrist for looking this over...

Are you in some sort of contest to see how many copy and pastes you can spam into threads in a two-week period?

When Perry comes in again (he’ll win), he will take it as Carte Blanche to do all the things we worked to stop.

I think re-electing Perry is a huge mistake.

I agree that *Medina* isn’t ideal, but her power will be very limited.

Perry has a lot of political sway. I guess Gilchrist won’t mind fighting the TTC battle all over again. It’s his opinion and his choice, I just think it’s a huge mistake.
