Obamas Wis. visit compared with Trumans CUNA visit
MADISON, Wis. (9/28/10)--President Barack Obama is visiting Madison, Wis., today in an event that is being compared by local media to President Harry S. Truman’s 1950 visit to the city when he dedicated the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) headquarters. President Truman was on a 6,400 mile whistle stop-train tour through 16 states when he spoke May 14, 1950, before a crowd of more than 10,000 people on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus during a midterm election year (Wisconsin State Journal Sept. 27). The article carried a photo of Truman laying the cornerstone of CUNA’s building. Today, President Obama will speak at the university’s Library Mall to begin a four-stop tour to help elect Democrats in key states during a midterm election year, the newspaper said. Some of Truman’s remarks in Madison 60 years ago sound like they could have been written for today’s occasion, the paper noted. “This world is constantly being drawn close to us by improved communications and improved transportation,” he said. “It is also being drawn close--dreadfully close--by weapons of destruction which become ever more terrible.” To read the article, use the link.
