Mother Jones‘ DC bureau chief David Corn joined Martin Bashir on MSNBC to discuss Corn’s new book, Showdown, which gives an inside account of Obama’s battles with the GOP, starting with the game-changing 2010 midterm elections and ending with the beginning of the 2012 campaign season. Corn also addresses the controversy that’s developed over his claim in Showdown that Fox News promoted the idea that Obama is Muslim to its viewers.

Also, don’t miss excerpts from Showdown about the inside story of the tense White House night during the bin Laden raid and Obama’s plan to win reelection in 2012.
