Posted on 02/11/2010 11:41:32 AM PST by DallasBiff

In a startling statement today, Republican candidate for governor Debra Medina refused to disavow the allegation that the U.S. government was somehow involved in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center towers on 9/11.

Medina made the statement during an interview on the Glenn Beck radio program

But, hey, Ron Paul is probably very proud of her.

That's got to be some consolation prize...right? ;-)

I heard this. Beck gave her every opportunity to back away from this. She didn’t.

Uh, she did disavow it. Emphatically in her press release.

After she saw the damage.

Did you hear the interview? She destroyed herself.

IIRC, Debra Medina was a campaign official for nutzie Ron Paul's 2008 run for potus.

That alone should disqualify her for any elected position.

No, she didn’t disavow it. We have the statements from her appearance on Glenn. If she weren’t with the nuts, she’d have done it then. She’s done.

She might as well have announced that she could not remember the name of “that mission in San Antonio”, she preferred the Dixie Chicks over George Strait and she liked salsa from New York City.

Aw, come on. That’s the same crap that all truthers say. I’ve outed a number of them in my local 9/12 group as well. They’re all the same.

I understand you like long shots. Still thinking Hunter can win. But to even try and stand by a woman who would align with with those whack jobs...no.

We won’t “see” anything. I know she’s done. You’ll have to learn the hard way.

Well, you’ll have to find me a quote from her before today saying she believes the truthers. If you do that, she’s toast. If not, it was one bad interview followed by the clarification of what she “really” believes.

Kinda like Palin and the birthers.

She's a Libertarian.

Like her hero Ron Paul and some others, they run on the Republican ticket because they know they don't stand a chance on the Libertarian ticket.

I admire your tenacity, but her candidacy was effectively destroyed today by her own hands. This has already gone viral and has already destroyed any possible chance of her winning.

FWIW, I thought she was going to win prior to this interview. It was a devastating blow.

Well, a "Truther" is someone who says that Bush and/or our government had a hand in the attacks on 9/11. They're basically saying that Bush and the government "set it up" so that they could go to war against the Muslims and over in the Middle East and to enact freedom-busting laws against the citizens of this country... But..., then again... it does seem that "some FReepers" have a certain level of tolerance for some 9/11 Truthers...

That would include "Phil Berg" who the Obama Derangement Syndrome people (on Free Republic) have also supported... :-)






Some organizations in the nutty 9/11 Truther Movement


[ Caution: reading some of these nutty groups may cause blindness and brain tumors. Proceed with caution. This is probably what happened to Medina... :-) ... ]

I doubt it. She can still beat KBH and force a runoff. I’ll take her at her word until you demonstrate why I shouldn’t.

I have to do no such thing. Everything before today is irrelevant. She was asked today and she answered today. Period.

She's tried to backtrack after the fact, having seen her candidacy destroyed in one radio segment, but it is hopeless. We've all seen enough truthers to know the dance when we see it.

Now, Rick RINO Perry will go on to an undeserved 3rd term. Yay.

Debra Medina states: “I have never been involved with the 9-11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way. No one can deny that the events on 9-11 were a tragedy for all Americans and especially those families who lost loved ones.”
So...who’s doing the misrepresentation of the Beck interview?

Medina statement after hemming and hawing on Beck. The lady isn't ready for Texas Prime Time.

Beck - Medina Truther Exchange

The above You Tube is about 4 minutes of the exchange where she talked over Beck and never made a denial when she had the chance. Poor Poor showing.

You can support the Easter Bunny for all I care, but if the Easter Bunny not only wouldn’t disavow being a 9/11 truther himself or whether or not he’d keep 9/11 truthers on staff, the Easter Bunny’s chances would be just as hopeless.

Did you listen to the interview?

So, she backtracked after she saw her candidacy completely obliterated in a frenzy of twitter posts. If she felt that way, she should have said so from the start.

The above wasn’t in the Beck interview but a response from her after the screw up that she did on Beck.... Click the link and listen to the 4 minutes of her hemming and hawing.

BUT, I'm looking for that evidence and it will show that they knew about it and did nothing [because it was an excellent "opportunity" doncha know...]. And when I find it, then I'll tell you I have believed that our government was at fault from the beginning!

She aligned with them by not denouncing this theory from the start line. Keep trying, but she’s through. You can see for yourself this is starting to blow up. Watch the campaign commercials Perry and KBH have out in the next few days. The woman dug her own political grave. Conservatives do not support any flirtations with this garbage.
