One of the masterminds behind Barack Obama’s election campaign, Jim Messina, has joined the British Conservative Party’s campaign team as a “strategic advisor” in the run up to the 2015 general election.
Messina is widely credited as being Obama’s right hand man in securing the 2012 Presidential victory, with a globally renowned expertise in social media and online campaigning.
…Messina describes himself as a lifelong Democrat and an ideological supporter of Barack Obama’s politics.
His willingness to grant the same support to David Cameron in what promises to be the most presidential campaign in British history is a clear signal that Messina, one of the most astute political analysts, sees Obama and Cameron’s politics as being very closely aligned. And this is of interminable concern.
