Debra Medina implodes on Glenn Beck's show
Kansas City Star ^ | 2/11/10 | By Yael T. Abouhalkah, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist

Posted on 02/11/2010 2:54:28 PM PST by DallasBiff

Medina is facing off in a GOP primary with Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Medina's absurd comments to Beck about U.S. government involvement in 9/11 included this gem:

"I don’t have all of the evidence there, Glenn, so 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 the evidence there, so I have not taken a position on that."

Perry and Hutchinson immediately ripped Medina for such ignorant comments

Her response was pathetic backpedal by a politican who committed campaign suicide this morning. Beck’s question should not have required much thought to craft a proper response ...

“No.”

... how hard is that?

The headlines are indicative ...

- Debra Medina Self-Destructs on Glenn Beck Radio Show (Christian Science Monitor)
- Medina refuses to say whether 9/11 was an inside job;
(Houston Chronicle)
- Medina sabotages her campaign with 9/11 answer
(Dallas Morning News (blog))
- Medina questions whether US government was involved in 9/11 attacks (CBS Local Houston)

She’s done. And, in reality, the candidate that some conservatives adored, and others hoped was the real-deal, never really existed. She was always a nutjob ... Beck just exposed her.

Medina Campaign Responds to Glenn Beck Interview

by Debra Medina on Feb 11, 2010

I was asked a question on the Glenn Beck show today regarding my thoughts on the so-called 9/11 truth movement. 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.

The question surprised me because it’s not relevant to this race or the issues facing Texans. This campaign has always been about private property rights and state sovereignty. It is focused on the issues facing Texans. It is not a vehicle for the 9-11 truth movement or any other group.

The real underlying question here, though, is whether or not people have the right to question our government. I think the fact that people are even asking questions on this level gets to the incredible distrust career politicians have fostered by so clearly taking their direction from special interests instead of the people, whether it’s Rick Perry and his HPV mandate or Kay Hutchison and voting for the bank bailout. It is absolutely the right and duty of a free people to question their government. Texas does not need another politician who tells you what you want to hear, then violates your liberties and steals your property anyway. I fully expect to be questioned and to be held accountable as Governor, and that’s the underlying issue here: should people be questioning their government. And the answer is yes, they should be

Medina may be the best campaign staffer Perry has ... she gift-wrapped a victory. This thing’s a cakewalk from here on. Perry will get about half of her supporters the second they hear this, and half-again once the rest realize its a lost cause.

No, rather the “we despise Ron Paul and Truthers” campaign.

It’s been in effect since at least 2001 when we were attacked by terrorists and not our own government.

I will never understand Truthers.

They act as if the government being involved is some kind of neat story that justifies them in their opposition to the government.

If I believed the government, or individuals within the government, were involved, I’d be pushing for a full-scale investigation, with prosecution and execution of all those involved, from GWB on down, for treason and mass murder.

But I don’t. No government is competent enough to keep such a secret, anyway.

Medina is not the sophisticated politician that Rick and Kay are. This question came out of the blue....nothing to do with the campaign. Of course she was taken back by the question. She thought she was going to be interviewed about her policies and what she would do if elected Governor. Beck was a jerk!!

Glenn Beck transcript, Medina 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

GLENN: Do you have advisors, do you have advisor

MEDINA: I’m not going to take a position.

GLENN: That’s fine.

MEDINA: These questions have been raised and they are not answered.

GLENN: Do you have advisors that advise you or people that are around you that are 9/11 Truthers?

MEDINA: Not to my knowledge.

GLENN: Would you, if you found out that there were, would you disavow them like the president should have but I mean, he escorted them out in the middle of the night. Van Jones was a 9/11 Truther. If you found out that people around you are advising you were 9/11 Truthers, would you disavow them or allow them to continue to advise you?

MEDINA: Well, you know, that’s a federal issue. We’re very focused on issues in Texas, on Texas state government. I’m certainly not into mind control or thought policing people.

GLENN: No, that’s a pretty big one.

MEDINA: We’ve got a very diverse team in this state and that’s because Texans are standing shoulder to shoulder to support and defend the Constitution. I frankly don’t have time, you know, to go through and do psychological testing on people and know every thought or detail that they have.

GLENN: No, I don’t think it’s psychological at all.

MEDINA: I don’t see us having a team of radical individuals, if you will. I think that there are certainly some that are looking, trying to use scare tactics. I you know, are there people?

GLENN: No, I don’t think they’re scare tactics. Debra, you’ve answered the question.

MEDINA: Yeah, are there people that have tried to come and be a part of our team

GLENN: Right.

MEDINA: that have not gotten on the team? Absolutely there are. But I can’t

GLENN: Yeah, I understand. Debra, you’ve answered the question.

MEDINA: You know, I don’t know. That’s so out of context, it’s difficult for me to answer.

GLENN: There’s

MEDINA: I think it would depend on, you know, how vocal they were about that and how much I thought it colored whatever other talent they brought to the table.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, Debra, thank you very much. I appreciate it and best of luck to you.

MEDINA: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet. Bye bye. I think

PAT: Problematic?

GLENN: While I don’t endorse anyone

PAT: Problematic?

GLENN: I think I can write her off the list. Let me take another look at Kay Bailey Hutchison if I have to. Rick, I think you and I could French kiss right now.

PAT: Let me tell you something. He’s a damn handsome man.

GLENN: He’s a damn handsome man.

PAT: Looks good in a pair of jeans.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: He’s a handsome man.

GLENN: Wow. The fastest way back to 4%.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Holy cow.

PAT: I mean, and we’re going to I’m going to hear from people in Texas. How can you take her we just asked the question!

GLENN: Asked the question.

PAT: Because we got all the rumors, I expected her to say oh, absolutely not.

STU: Even if you are a Truther, there’s an easy answer to that

PAT: That is not what she said.

STU: which is of course not; what are you talking

PAT: Absolutely not, I am not a 9/11 Truther.

GLENN: I mean, but at least give her credit.

STU: Give her credit, she told the truth.

GLENN: Give her credit for telling the truth.

PAT: She didn’t lie. Yeah, she didn’t lie.

GLENN: But you know what? If you believe the United States government blew up the World Trade Center, there should be no other higher priority, no other higher priority.

PAT: And I don’t want to hear from you if you are a 9/11 Truther on her side.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Save your e mails.

It was a softball question with an easy answer. “No.”

It may have been out-of-the-blue — though given her response, I’m not sure it was (where there’s smoke ...) — but it doesn’t take much studying come up with an answer to that question. It wasn’t a pop quiz about leaders of obscure nations ... it was a simple question “Do you think the US Government had any involvement in the 9/11 attacks”.

She shouldn’t need to prepare an answer. The fact that she did need to prepare an answer means the answer is likely not “no”.

She is incompetent, and unqualified to govern this state.

She began the interview with packaged talking points answers and would not stop until she had finished reading them...in my opinion.

I was already questioning her as a candidate before THE QUESTION. She was not convincing about her surprise to be asked that question since she again launched into a prepared statement.

That response was the second reason NOT to vote for her.

The people working overtime at FR are your folks from the unqualified Medina campaign. She should not have been running to start with because of no experience.

The insult to Sarah Palin by some of you Medina people are not going to win votes. Medina sure is not like Palin who had experience as a Mayor before running for Governor.

Your candidate stuck a fork in herself on what should have been an easy question to answer. Not ready for prime time but then most did not realize where she came from. Hope it teaches people a lesson that because people say they are from the Tea Party movement doesn’t mean they are good candidates or even conservative.

Democrats would have had her for lunch in the general election and getting a run-off would have wasted money.

The gig is UP!

Exactly.

She's a Ron Paul acolyte. She couldn't answer Glenn's question because she was worried about offending the large contingent of "Troofers" in her support base.

Then when it hits the fan, she backpedaled.

I wasn't buying her garbage before and I'm certainly not buying it now.

It doesn’t matter if it was a set-up. She should’ve been able to sidestep the landmine. She didn’t and it blew up in her face. It isn’t the question that disqualified her ... it was her monumentally stupid answer.

I do not understand how ANY conservative could vote for her after she admitted that she entertains the notion that the Bush Administration may have been involved in 9/11.

She has permanently and irrevocably lost the vote of this Texas Republican, as well as my entire family (8 voters). Like Beck said, “fastest way back to 4%”. She’ll be there before you know it. She’s done.

I’m not a Texan, so I don’t have a horse in the race. But just MHO. I’ve been listening to Beck since 2000 (he was our local guy back then.) He does not ask a question “accidentally.” He asked the question because he knew she’d waffle on the answer. Why/how he knew she’d waffle is anybody’s guess. Pat Gray was a radio host in Texas for years before he joined Glenn’s staff...maybe he knew something. But it wasn’t an out of the blue, has nothing to do with anything, oh, and by the way, question...I’ll guarantee that. Her answer proved she had an issue with it, even her explanation of her answer is vague.

After that answer, there were really no more questions to ask. Like Beck, I couldn’t care less about her thoughts on Perry or Hutchinson, her property tax arguments, or any other issues.

Her answer was a dealbreaker, and there is really nothing else she could’ve said. She completely eliminated the necessity for the rest of the interview.

Look, I'm not advocating for Perry - I don't vote in Texas anymore.

I'm just saying that if her website statement is a true reflection of her views (and not just morning-after CYA), then she should have spoken out plainly.

She chose to dance and squirm and hem and haw and "nuance" it, and came out looking like a nutcase.

Plain speaking is what we need, not nuance.
