BARACK OBAMA TO PROVIDE ANOTHER “NEW DEAL” FOR AMERICA?
MTSU History Professor Examines Obama and FDR on “MTSU on the Record”
(MURFREESBORO) — A recent edition of TIME Magazine featured President-elect Barack Obama’s face juxtaposed on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s body, complete with confident beaming smile and cigarette holder. With experts describing the current national economy as the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, how valid are comparisons to the challenges faced by FDR then and the challenges facing Obama now?
Dr. Kris McCusker, associate professor of history, will provide an historical perspective for the America to be inherited by the incoming Obama administration on “MTSU on the Record” with host Gina Logue at 7 a.m. this Sunday, Jan. 11, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
