Over the course of eight years, Barack Obama amassed an array of historic achievements. His administration saved the American economy from collapse, expanded health insurance to tens of millions who previously could not afford it, negotiated an unprecedented nuclear deal with Iran, helped craft a groundbreaking international climate accord, reined in Wall Street, launched a fundamental overhaul of our education system, and formulated a new vision of racial progress. He has done all of this despite a left that frequently disdained him as a sellout, and a hysterical right that did everything possible to destroy his agenda, even in instances when they actually agreed with what he was doing before Obama was the one doing it.
While the last historic achievement “Obamacare” is now the ultimate first to be repealed by the incoming administration and Congress, Barack H. Obama is optimistic that it’s revision will still be geared ultimately to the initial goal of providing health insurance to millions of Americans without medical coverage when it was originally conceptualized.
His first act in 2008 was to bail out the auto industry as the precursor to his legacy in stabilizing the great recession in modern time. Now, as the page turns to possibly the most dangerous Commander in Chief in our history, Jonathan Chait, one of America s most incisive and meticulous political commentators, digs deep into Obama s record on major policy fronts the economy, the environment, domestic reform, health care, race, and foreign policy to demonstrate why history will judge our forty-fourth president as among our greatest. Chait explains why so many observers, from cynical journalists to disheartened Democrats, missed the enormous evidence of progress amidst the smoke screen of extremist propaganda and the confinement of short-term perspective. He also reveals why Obama s accomplishments will last despite the reactionary effort by Donald Trump and the Republicans to extinguish them. And in its resounding defense of Obama s tenure, Audacity both makes clear his victories, and what we need to fight for next.
This will be a great reading book in time for the inauguration of the 45th President, Donald Trump on January 20 while watching Barack and Michelle Obama’s historic farewell send of in Marine One from the White House lawn.
