Lou Dobbs Thursday 3pm, WVOP AM970
Wednesday, 04 February 2009
February 5-- We have to admit it: President Obama had us all excited when his economic stimulus package included “Buy American” provisions. After all, if U.S. taxpayers are going to be on the hook for a trillion bucks or so in new spending, shouldn’t that spending actually benefit U.S. workers and manufacturers?

We’re not so excited now. On Tuesday, the new president expressed concerns about sending “a protectionist message.” Urgh. It sure sounds like the president is feeling the heat from special interests that put themselves first and U.S. workers second. And in the process, the American people are again presented with the utterly bogus choice of “protectionism” versus unfettered free trade.

Where can you turn for a little economic reality these days? Try the Independent Nation, where Lou Dobbs will keep speaking truth to power.

Joining Lou on Thursday’s broadcast will be the newly minted chairman of the Republican National committee, MICHAEL STEELE. He’ll discuss his ascension to his new post, as well as plans for the GOP’s future.

Democratic congresswoman CORRINE BROWN, who represents the Third District of Florida, talks to Lou about this nation’s mortgage crisis—and how we can fix it.

JOHN FUND, the author of Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, offers his take on the latest developments in the still-unresolved Minnesota Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken.

And PETER MORICI, professor of international business at the University of Maryland, examines the stimulus package that’s being debated by the Senate and whether it can cure what’s ailing our economy.

As always, Lou will take your calls to discuss the issues that matter most to you—and to get your thoughts on the direction America is heading. Call him toll-free on the Independent Hotline at 877-55 DOBBS. (It’s the best bargain in broadcasting.)
