This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Sept. 12, 2012 for week ending Sept. 21, 2012

"Obama's going to stay away from the issues of the poor, because Republicans are running ads on welfare in some of the swing states. ... With this attack on Obama because of his race, black folk in particular take racist attacks on Obama as an attack on black competency. You're forced to vote for or defend him, because you're defending his competence."

– Author and activist Kevin Alexander Gray on why Obama focuses on the middle-class and doesn't discuss the issue of poverty in a campaign season where race and racism are the primary weapons to diminish candidates

Critics Separate Rhetoric from Reality in Obama's "Hope and Change" Foreign Policy

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with John Feffer, co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

foreignpolicy

Sen. Barack Obama campaigned for the presidency in 2008, as the “hope and change” candidate on domestic as well as foreign policy issues. After years of growing disenchantment and opposition to President George W. Bush’s bellicose and militaristic policies abroad – including the invasion of Iraq based on false allegations – many Americans were ready for our government to take a new approach in dealing with the rest of the world.  Story continues

In Appealing to Middle Class Voters, Obama and Democrats Ignore Rising Levels of Poverty

Interview with Kevin Alexander Gray, writer and activist Kevin Alexander Gray, conducted by Scott Harris

poverty

Observers of the issues discussed in countless speeches and demographic groups targeted at the Democratic and Republican national conventions easily could conclude that the primary focus of both parties' presidential election campaigns through November will be an all-out effort to appeal to middle-class voters. While politicians from both parties addressed the anemic economic recovery that has created a sense of uncertainty among many working families across the nation, little was said at either convention about the deepening poverty that is undermining the fabric of many of the nation’s poorest communities. Double-digit unemployment rates afflict both African Americans and Latinos.  Story continues

Stanford University Study Ignores Key Reasons Why People Buy Organic Foods

Interview with Bill Duesing, president, Connecticut chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

organic

A Sept. 4 headline in the New York Times read "Stanford Scientists Cast Doubt on Advantages of Organic Meat and Produce." The study cited was a meta-analysis of 40 years of research on organic and conventionally produced produce, that is, produce sprayed with pesticides. The study concluded that organic food was no more nutritious than non-organic. The research didn’t focus on questions of sustainability or even of flavor, though many people who responded to the article stated these issues were paramount in their decision to pay a premium price to buy organic food.  Story continues
