Jonathan Chait - Audacity: How Barack Obama Defied His Critics and Transformed America

Upcoming Event
Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As Obama leaves office, Chait, a noted commentator and the author of “The National Interest” column for New York magazine, gives the forty-fourth president high marks. While noting that Obama’s record on foreign policy is wanting, Chait nonetheless credits him with largely fulfilling his ambitious promises. His analysis of Obama’s two terms details the administration’s accomplishments in areas including expanded health care, a curb on Wall Street’s excesses, the nuclear treaty with Iran, and the global accord on climate change. Chait also notes that Obama achieved these things in the face of strong opposition from the right and little assistance from the left.
