Given this administration’s continuing downward spiral on the economy, if they were sincerely trying to help, the first thing they’d do would be to stop trying to help. But the kinds of “strategies” that have turned out to be little more than throwing wildly expensive anvils to a drowning jobs market are instead being expanded deeper into the heartland.

From the White House website:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The White House today announced the establishment of the first White House Rural Council. While rural communities face challenges, they also present economic potential. To address these challenges, build on the Administration’s rural economic strategy, and improve the implementation of that strategy, the President signed an Executive Order establishing the White House Rural Council.

“Strong rural communities are key to a stronger America,” said President Barack Obama. “That’s why I’ve established the White House Rural Council to make sure we’re working across government to strengthen rural communities and promote economic growth.”

Hang in there, fellow bitter clingers — Federal reinforcements to help you become milder and less clingy are on the way.
