Medina Would Now Beat Bill White
http://www.texasgopvote.com ^ | 02-02-2010 | Texas GOP

Posted on 02/06/2010 9:31:47 AM PST by willyd

Are you intentionally lying? Straight from your source: "The surprise, as in the new Rasmussen Reports survey of the GOP gubernatorial primary, is the growing strength of Debra Medina, a businesswoman active in the state’s Tea Party movement. Medina now edges White 41% to 38%."

It looks like Medina would be a strong candidate against Bill White as well...even though Perry's people are intentionally spreading rumors to the contrary. They are also making false statements that a vote for Medina will somehow split the vote or help Bill White in the election...this is patently false and seems to indicate that Medina is turning a lot heads in Texas.

This is excellent news, given that White is perhaps the strongest Democrat in Texas electorally. A Republican of Libertarian bent is something we need more of. Since most of Ron Paul’s critics aim their criticism at his foreign policy, they can’t use that to justify opposing Medina.

On what planet do posters on conservative site have to justify opposing a liberal?

Social issues are issues that matter.

BS.

People need to pull back and ask exactly who is really behind Medina and why she a person with no experience is running for the highest office in our state?

I consider this an insult the people of Texas.

One thing I’ve learned here on FR. Once someone determines they are for a candidate they will not generally consider any facts contrary to that decision.

Those for Medina aren’t going to accept the obvious. You could have the facts signed and notorized but it will not change their vote for her.

Unfortunately the people will learn the hard way like they have with Obama, should she capture this election. If she looses she has already done damage.

Why does she have to begin her political career at the top? Let her prove her worth first. Even nObama was a senator for 143 days.

This is an interesting comment coming from someone with your username: "...then find me a real conservative to vote for". Where do you think "they" come from? You would complain about any candidate whose name isn't Rick Perry.

Amen! People are getting all worked up about her because she's new to the scene, but look a little closer, folks.

She's a Ron Paul Libertarian who doesn't have a good grasp on how laws work in Texas.

She appears sympathetic to "immigrants" and is running a lot of ads in Spanish. She even talks about how we need to be more concerned about "Hispanics." Yes, she panders.

While I would love to see our State House get some new, conservative blood, Medina is not it.

What’s my user name have to do with anything? Quit trying to bait me. You know exactly what I mean. It’s to bad people are falling for the same reason we got Obama. That’s the difference.

I put my tag line there when they stole the election from us by putting McCain as our candidate.

What do you think they are doing with Medina? She is a loose cannon and a spoiler; notthing more.

For starters look up Debra Medina's column 'Latinos and the GOP'

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

'Ignore them', Mrs Medina? Since when? What more do you want? Or shouldn't we ask?

Medina ad:

“Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family?” (Medina’s cultural heritage is German and Bohemian.)

She told a colleague last month in an e-mail. “Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture.” But before she explained that, she told my colleage, who had asked her whether she considers herself Latina: “I’d not consider myself anything other than a wife and mother, a nurse and a patriot. I believe we too often get into race when it’s immaterial.”

No, Thanks, Mrs Medina.

She is also running Spanish ads. Hello Mrs.Medina! If they cannot speak English then they have no business voting IMO. When they learn English then let them vote. Assimilate. Learn English. Appreciate all America gives you.

So I’m sure she is blowing a lot of hot air just like Obama did just to get elected. Running those ads and saying what she has, tells me the border issue is just a try to get votes for herself.

No, thanks, I’ll stick with ‘ol RINO Perry. Texas has remained in better shape than almost any if not all of the states in the union under Perry's watch. As someone said, 'he's the devil we know'.

The motly crew running for governor is laughable; a MUSLIM, a trecherous RINO woman* (Hutchison) and a woman with questionable loyalties

*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.”

I fully agree with Debra Medina on this

There are really only two kinds of people, Good or Bad

Which one do you strive to be ?

When we quit wasting time worrying about what race some one is or who they are married to

We can get on with Restoring The United States of America to the # 1 gold standard of excellence of all things in the world

Really? Because I know who is backing Perry, and I don’t like it one bit.

Do you support the TTC? Do you support the mandatory inoculation for the HPV virus to all girls? Do you support the sale of toll roads to Spanish companies?

I don’t and I know who does, Rick Perry and his “backers.”

Is Medina perfect? Well, she could have more experience, but if she has some super-secret backers, they sure don’t have much money.

How much do you get paid to copy and paste this in every thread discussing Medina?

FACT: Rick Perry wants to build a huge toll road connecting us to Mexico.

FACT: Rick Perry wants to sell that toll road to a Spanish company, who will reap all the rewards from taxpayer built roads.

FACT: Rick Perry wanted to force all young girls to be inoculated for HPV, a sexually transmitted disease, even if against the child’s or the child’s parent’s wishes.

Rick Perry: A liberal RINOs can love.

So go ahead, sell Texas to the Spanish all while making it easier for Mexico to have even greater influence, all while claiming you are protecting the border.

Get lost.

Exactly.

And liberal Bill White would clobber Medina on the experience issue alone.

And we do not need Bill White as governor.

She’s hinted that she will run 3rd party if she does not win the GOP primary. Why don’t the libertarians run as Democrats and eat up DNC funds instead? The DNC needs to move to the right as well.

I’m going to say the same thing to you . . . .

So instead of going with the one who *might* be a liar, you’re going with the one you *know* is, just to avoid any surprises.

I really don’t understand this logic. I have three choices:

1. Die
2. Die
3. Maybe live maybe die

I’m taking the third one. I may be surprised and die, but at least I have a shot.

Hilarious. Now down to ad hominems. When you don’t have a rational argument, demean the other speaker.

“Medina just plain sucks. She’s nobody with nothing to offer except talk.”

That’s like going to war with a shot-out m24 Yugo Mauser and passing on a SCAR that’s never been fired because “it’s never been tested in battle. It’s all just range time.”

So you admit the following?

Because that's what you did there, chief.

“Because that’s what you did there, chief.”

From one of my favorite movie quotes:

“You do some time, they never let you go. Treat me like a criminal, I’ll end up a criminal.”

“You are a criminal.”

“Why you gotta go and do that? I’m trying to make a point.”
