Jordan Signs on With Saul Shorr



Democratic strategist Jim Jordan

In the first of what undoubtedly will be a slew of realignments in the consulting world, Jim Jordan, a prominent Democratic strategist, has decided to join the media firm of Shorr Johnson Magnus as a senior adviser.

"Andrea Johnson, Adam Magnus and I are thrilled that Jim has accepted the offer to join our firm," said Saul Shorr, one of the firm's principals. "We know it will make us stronger both in serving our political clients, and expanding our non-campaign business."

Jordan is a well-known name in Democratic circles, having worked for a number of national politicians over the past decade. He served as political director, communications director and executive director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee earlier this decade and in 2008 oversaw the organization's independent expenditure operation -- a major reason the party was able to pick up seven seats.

Jordan also has dabbled in national politics, running Sen. John Kerry's political operation for several years and eventually serving as campaign manager for the Massachusetts Democrat's presidential bid for much of 2003.

Jordan joins a firm coming off a very successful 2008 cycle that included work as part of President-elect Barack Obama's media team as well as gubernatorial victories in North Carolina and Washington state.

Shorr Johnson Magnus is likely to have another busy cycle in 2010. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is mentioned as either a Senate or gubernatorial candidate while Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan is reportedly considering a run against Sen. Kit Bond (R) -- both are clients of the firm.

IT's not really a conspiracy, it's more like a FRAUD - however haven't we said that before about Obama?


Someone just caught Obama - because Obama was traveling to Pakistan and several other countries in 1981


However we know that Obama did not have a US passport in 1981 - so Obama MUST have been traveling with a foreign passport - meaning he was a citizen of another country - meaning perhaps he isn't even a citizen of this country and that he was born in Keyna


Obama could actually be an illegal alien.


Obama lied, Obama lied, Obama lied, Obama lied, Obama lied.


.


Obama's grandmother is an eyewitness - she is on tape saying that Obama was born in Keyna.

Clearly this is a Weak Administration - you have all the Obamaniacs on here claiming that Obama is so smart, blah blah blah


However, read the postings about Hillary on this blog....


The appointments so far have been silly - a group of inexperienced blowhart artists who would be rejected by any human resources department in all the major corporations in the country.


Hillary is not qualified, period.


Richardson's performance at the Department of Energy should BAR HIM from all federal government buildings.


Eric Holder did a horrible job at Justice during his years there - he DOES NOT deserve a promotion to head the Department of Justice - the primary motivation in his appointment appears NOT THAT HE IS THE BEST QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE ATTORNEY GENERAL BUT THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN.


Napolitano may have been a good Governor, of a state with border issues, however let's be serious: DOES SHE HAVE ANY EXPERTISE AT ALL IN SECURITY ISSUES ??? Homeland Security has become a fairly important post and it appears that Obama doesn't know what he is doing appointing someone with so little experience in the actual field of HOMELAND SECURITY.


Rahm Emanuel ? As Chief of Staff? Why doesn't Obama just offer it to Bill Clinton himself. This DOES NOT represent change, and is a little silly to throw back in the faces of all the people who supported Obama in the primaries because they did not want another Clinton administration.


Overall, ONE HAS TO STATE THAT OBAMA HAS SHOWN POOR JUDGEMENT OVERALL IN THESE SELECTIONS - HE DOES NOT EVEN DESERVE A "C" - MORE LIKE A GRADE OF A "D"


Again, thank you for reading the truth.

Give it up 37th and O. The appointees will resign their seats prior to taking a position in the administration. Also, please stop spreading disinformation. What does claiming President-elect Obama was born in Kenya add to the conversation? Are you really that deranged?

Maybe Jim Jordan should be considered for Secretary of State


Pesky document that Constitution isn't it?


Read this


No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.


It appears Hillary can not be Secretary of State.


So NOT ONLY IS OBAMA DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE HE WAS BORN IN KEYNA, HILLARY CAN NOT BE SECRETARY OF STATE.
