Jordan's stealth campaign

| | Comments (5)

What does it tell you when a Republican candidate for State House, a first-time candidate with no public track record, refuses to expose himself to direct public scrutiny?

Fred Jordan refused to fill out the Oklahoma Republican Assembly questionnaire.

Over the weekend, KRMG invited Fred Jordan and Chris Medlock to appear separately on Joe Kelley's Monday morning show. Chris Medlock accepted and appeared. Fred Jordan refused. Not only did Jordan refuse, when he was told that Medlock would be on the air whether or not Jordan accepted the opportunity, Jordan complained that that was unfair.

Fred Jordan had set up an interview with the Tulsa Beacon, but cancelled it.

Fred Jordan refused an opportunity to debate Chris Medlock on Charlie Biggs' talk show on KCFO.

What does it tell you?


Paul Tay said:

He's a genius!

Twatch said:

Mr. Jordan is either following his own council or the council of his puppet masters. In any case his public position is designed to maintain
maximum flexibility to implement an agenda that would not be supported if explained to the electorate. I suspect Mr. Jordan is unaware of the
degree to which he is expected to "deliver".

Michelle said:

I had a Fred Jordan apologist comment on my blog. He said Chris Medlock was "booted out of the city council" and a whole bunch of other stuff that I refuted. All he could come back with was "I'm not going to dignify that with a response." Of course he couldn't, because I was right and he knew it.

I confess to hindsight in that I have already seen some returns on TV, but responding to your quesiton, Mike, it means:
1) Paul Tay is correct
2) Twatch is correct
3) Michelle is correct.

Or, putting all that another way, it proves Lincoln erred in his "you can fool all the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but not all of the people all of the time" analysis. Democracy does not require fooling all of the people, only 51 percent of them.

Mike said:

Unfortunately, his stealth campaign paid off for him today. For the life of me, I can't understand some of the folks in these parts who call themselves Republicans. Guess it takes all kinds, because I certainly don't have much in common with the Jordan/Christiansen/Hiett bunch.

Thank God at least Fred Perry put Christiansen in his place.
