Obama agenda: Obama's 'insourcing' event

Just a day after the nation’s first primary, President Obama held an “insourcing jobs forum” on Wednesday aimed at creating and bringing additional jobs to America, NBC’s Kristen Welker reports. Similarly, the day after last week’s Iowa caucuses, the president announced the recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Welker adds that both events are seemingly aimed at painting the president as a protector of the middle class and at striking strong contrasts with the Republican field.
