WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama plans to create a special advisory council to recommend ways to boost the economic outlook and quality of life for the estimated 60 million people who live in rural areas of the U.S., a White House official said.

Obama was expected to sign an executive order Thursday establishing the White House Rural Council and naming Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, of Iowa, to be its chairman.

I’m sure this will create a couple hundred well paid jobs for Democrats to parcel out in advance of 2012.

Well done Baraq!

Yeah, he’ll improve the quality of life of rural folks by resettling them to the cities where they can be watched more efficiently.

Why doesn’t he send rain to drought-decimated Texas or dry weather to the water-logged Mid-West while he’s at it? He actually thinks these worthless commissions are fooling voters into thinking he’s doing something about the HORRIBLE economy all over the U.S. Next November, he’ll see that it’s very hard to fool rural folks these days.

Its always been hard to fool rural folks. All they’ll do is realize that we ignore the cute little mandates they issue from Washington and continue to do as we please.

The White Crib is bitterly clinging to old-school Chicago buy-en-off-with gubmint-programs politics, trying to attract the “bitter clingers” and their G*d and Guns. When will Barry show up in the sticks asking, a la John F’n Kerry (who served in Viet Nam, “Where can I get me a huntin’ license?”

Well they'll have plenty to write LOL.

A few years back the county was trying to get the townships to impose anti burning ordinances. Almost every township said there was no point in bringing it up at meetings because the people would ignore the ordinance.

They seem to think that if you don’t live in a big city and drink cappuccinos - your life sucks.

“”None of his other special study groups have done a damn thing!””

Usually they do but he knows in advance he will disregard everything they come up with. Sure looks good - at least to him!!

Guess he never heard of the WAR ON POVERTY and the wonderful bountiful results from that!!

I’m amazed that I still have exclamation points left after the election of 2008!!!

His answer to everything. If there is a crisis appoint a group to study it. If there is no crisis appoint a group to study it.
Wonder how many groups this makes now.

Simple...start a "Public Allies" as a "Rural Allies" organization....

Check out 0bambi's "Public Allies" here at: www.publicallies.org

to see how it looks like and how it works.
