Cue Twilight Zone Music: Texas Candidate Debra Medina is a 9/11 Truther

Debra Medina imploded today on the Glenn Beck radio show. The Republcian candidate for governor is a 9-11 Truther.

She said questions still remain.

TV and radio commentator Glenn Beck dismissed the candidacy of Debra Medina when she left open the door to a conspiracy fringe group that believe the U.S. government might have been behind the 9-11 destruction of the World Trade Center.

Beck, a leading personality for conservatives, asked her point blank if she believed such a theory.

“I don’t have all the evidence there, Glenn,” Medina replied. “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’s some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence there so I’ve not taken a position there.”

He then asked if she would disavow people on her campaign team that held such a theory.

“I’m certainly not into mind control or thought policing people,” Medina said. “I don’t see us having a team of radical individuals, if you will.”

When she signed off the program, Beck let out a long Oooh.

Statement from Gov. Rick Perry:

"Today's comments were an insult to the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on 9/11 and the military men and women who are overseas protecting our country. President Bush worked tirelessly to protect our nation from additional terrorist attacks and anyone who would suggest 9/11 is a conspiracy involving the Bush administration should be ashamed."

Statement From Kay Bailey Hutchison Regarding Medina 9/11 Comments

"I know exactly who was responsible for the horrific attacks on September 11th - Al Qaeda terrorists who declared war on America. To suggest otherwise is an affront to the men and women who are sacrificing their lives to root out the terrorists in Afghanistan and around globe. Ever since that tragic day, I have fought tirelessly to ensure that we hunted down the Islamic extremists who target our nation. No one stood closer to President Bush and Vice President Cheney in their efforts to defeat the terrorist threat to our freedom."


Wild Thing's comment.........

She was always a nutjob ... Beck just exposed her. She is incompetent, and unqualified.

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.

Debra Medina is a Ron Paul follower. She comes across as very conservative and has some good ideas, but she is a believer in Ron Paul.
