9780062108005: Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Battled the GOP to Set Up the 2012 Election

Veteran journalist David Corn—Washington Bureau Chief for Mother Jones magazine and New York Times bestselling author of Hubris (with Michael Isikoff) and The Lies of George W. Bush—now brings us  Showdown, the dramatic inside story of Barack Obama’s fight to save his presidency. With Bob Woodward-esque insight and narrative flair, Corn takes readers into the White House and behind the political scenes during the beleaguered president’s pivotal third year, and explores the most earth-shaking events of the Obama presidency—from the game changing 2010 elections to the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling battle with Congressional Republicans, the killing of Osama bin Laden and beyond.

From the Back Cover:

Heading into the 2012 campaign, Barack Obama was coming off of a period of bitter battles with an emboldened Republican opposition dedicated to impeding his presidency. These crises and fierce debates transformed Obama and profoundly shaped the terrain for what would be his last election.

Drawing on interviews with high-ranking White House officials, Obama's inner circle, members of Congress, and others, David Corn takes the reader into the Oval Office and the back rooms on Capitol Hill for a fast-paced and gripping account of the major clashes and events that defined Obama's presidency, including the controversial tax-cut deal with Congress, the repeal of Don't Ask/Don't Tell, the near shutdown of the government, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the intense, high-wire debt-ceiling face-off.

A vivid and powerful account of White House decision making, Showdown offers a unique and enlightening look at the turbulent American political scene during one of the most consequential moments of the nation's history, and explains the fascinating and complicated leader at the heart of this vortex.
