David Corn on ‘Showdown’ between Obama White House & House Republicans


Hour 1

Mother Jones Washington Bureau chief DAVID CORN has a new book, “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party,” covering the White House struggle against House Republicans from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of 2012. Corn’s analysis of how “President Barack Obama got his groove back in time for his reelection campaign” is filled with observations, interviews with key players on Capitol Hill and the White House, and his trademark probing analysis from the left.
