Will Obama help developing country farmers?


Obama’s inauguration promise: “To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds.”

Emmanuel says that pledge is unlikely to be fulfilled, alleging that Obama supports ethanol tariffs and farm subsidies.

    But it’s the thought that counts, right?

    Considering that the Democrats continue to block free trade agreements and are leaning towards protectionism in these harsh economic times, I can’t fathom how the President thinks he’ll accomplish this. With all the money we are giving away to the banks, auto makers and such, I guess the only plausible means would be……more money, the penultimate problem solver.
