Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up today weâ€™ll talk with David Corn of Mother Jones Magazine about his new book SHOWDOWN: the Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor and the Tea Partyâ€¦..
And weâ€™ll also hear from members of Occupy St. Petersburg who will be protesting state laws on nuclear power tomorrow in front of Progress Energyâ€™s offices.
But first- four listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s program on which we discussed rock star Ted Nugentâ€™s recent comments to the National Rifle Association Convention.
Our first guests are members of the Occupy St. Petersburg movement. They are: Lenny Flank, Christine Wall, and Greg Stemm.
They will be protesting Progress Energyâ€™s plans to build two new nuclear plants in Levy County by holding an event tomorrow in Williams park in downtown St. Petersburg across from the Progress Energy Building.
In his new book SHOWDOWN, Mother Jones Magazine DC Bureau chief David Corn writes about the period after the 2010 elections to the start of the 2012 presidential campaign. The 2010 elections saw the big gains in the House for Tea Party backed Republicansâ€¦.and some saw it as a repudiation of President Obamaâ€™s first two years in office.
