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.
