Governor Perry & Kay Baily Hutchison Respond to Debra Medina Truther Statements
It looks like the 9-11 Truthers have been impressed with Debra Medina for a while.
From the We Are Change Truther website: “Debra Medina & Sheriff Richard Mack at “States’ Rights Tea Party” in Seguin”
Yesterday, Texas Tea Party candidate effectively destroyed her campaign for governor when she told Glenn Beck that there were “some very good arguments” that the U.S. was involved in bringing down the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
Governor Rick Perry and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison responded to these crazy statements yesterday afternoon.
The Dallas News reported:
Medina, Perry and Hutchison are battling for the GOP nomination. In recent weeks, Medina has surprised political observers by surging in public opinion polls and raising her profile in two televised debates.
Perry said Medina’s remarks “were an insult to the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones.” He countered that anyone “should be ashamed” for suggesting involvement by former President George W. Bush’s administration. Bush was Perry’s predecessor as Texas governor.
Hutchison stressed that it was “al-Qaida 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 the globe.”
Beck, who is influential among the Libertarian-leaning voters that Medina has attracted, said he had been flooded with mail since he announced she would be on the show. Medina said in the interview that she has not been questioning the attacks publicly.
“There was a theme that ran against you, and that is, you are a ‘9/11 Truther,'” Beck said, referring to the term given to people who doubt the official account of Sept. 11.
“While I don’t endorse anyone … I think I can write her off the list,” Beck said. “Let me take another look at Kay Bailey Hutchison if I have to. Rick, I think you and I could French kiss right now.”
