Blago and boards

Does Blagojevich oppose using these boards to govern?

Chicago Tribune (Diane Rado):
After the threat of a lawsuit by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Blagojevich on Monday appointed new members to the Education Funding Advisory Board that recommends per-student funding levels for schoolchildren.
Alton Telegraph (AP):
A new economic development board cannot conduct business because Gov. Rod Blagojevich has failed to appoint members, despite his praise for the board when it was created six months ago.
And of course the Gambling, err, "Gaming" Board has gotten more attention.

What gives? Blagojevich creates a board and then doesn't use it.

Is he trying to get credit for creating the board but avoiding the accountability of actually doing something on the issue? Does he think this is a viable political strategy?
