Jobs R Us; Obama taps labor expert for econ post

The White House is going to announce a major new jobs initiative after Labor Day. This is, of course, in response to jobs being placed on the endangered species list. We all know that the cobweb-dark economy has devoured jobs like so much barbecued shrimp.
To get things kick started today, President Obama named Alan Krueger, one of the nation’s top labor economists, next chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.

Krueger’s Mission Impossible is to jump start the economy, thus tautening the strap that slingshots Obama to a second term.

Good luck with that.

Fixing the economic mess is a tad more complex than adding a little Rust-Oleum so everything looks better.

At the helm, Krueger will be restrained only by the injunctions of wind, tide and partisan politics.
