9780062117113: Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party

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:

In Showdown, the veteran political journalist and New York Times bestselling author David Corn goes behind the scenes at the White House to recount the dramatic tale of the pivotal period of the Obama presidency, from the game-changing 2010 midterm elections to the beginning of the critical 2012 campaign season—a tumultuous time that tested the president as never before and set the stage for a titanic clash over the future of the nation.

Drawing on interviews with White House officials, Obama's inner circle, members of Congress, and others, Corn takes the reader into the Oval Office and the back rooms of Congress for a fast-paced account of the major events and captures the dilemmas faced by a president assailed by disappointed progressives and defiantly obstructionist Republicans determined to see his defeat.

The book offers revelations and an enlightening look at the turbulent American political scene during one of the most consequential moments of the nation's history; it explains the fascinating and complicated leader at the heart of this vortex, Barack Obama.
