Obama’s Missteps Across the Pond: Why the US Still Needs Europe

The United State’s relationship with Europe, and in particular the United Kingdom, has always been a special one.  However, in recent years, the Obama Administration has let that relationship falter.  Whether it is sending back a bust of Winston Churchill, giving the Queen an iPod as a gift, or ignominiously slighting the British Prime Minister by cancelling a welcome ceremony and press conference, the mistakes have been significant.  The apparent disregard for the US relationship with UK and Europe has some important consequences in the world today.

Reception with Joe Morris

July 29, 2010 at The Library at 190 South LaSalle

More than 30 years after Saul Alinsky published Rules for Radicals, his philosophy has returned front and center to the American political stage with the rise of President Obama, a former “community organizer.” How did Alinsky affect modern politics? How does his school of thought affect the positions and actions of Obama and his administration? What do you need to know about Alinsky and his philosophy?

Together with Illinois Policy Institute, we hosted Joe Morris, a Chicago lawyer and president of the Chicago Legal Foundation, to discuss this fascinating topic. Morris met Alinsky in the late 1960s and witnessed some of his organizing efforts firsthand. He is an alumnus of the college and law school of The University of Chicago and has served in several senior positions in President Reagan’s administration.
