Obama in Manitowoc: KPFK Wed. 1/26

The day after Obama called for investment in infrastructure and cutting the corporate tax rate in his State of the Union speech, he travelled to Manitowoc, Wisconsin – our JOHN NICHOLS was there and will report.  John of course is Washington Correspondent for The Nation and writes “The Beat” blog at TheNation.com.

Also: Last night’s State of the Union was a speech about Obama’s view of where jobs come from: from government help for corporations.  But those corporations have not been hiring workers in the US, says  HAROLD MEYERSON: he writes a column for the Washington Post op-ed page and he’s editor at large of The American Prospect.

Plus:  Baby Doc is back.  AMY WILENTZ returned last week from Haiti on the first anniversary of the earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people – and after the ominous return of former dictator “Baby Doc” Duvalier.  Amy wrote about Haiti for the L.A. Times. “Haiti Stories” conference at UCLA Sat. 1/29: info HERE.
