內容簡介

「一本必須存在的參考文獻,獻給未來要研究歐巴馬總統任內政績的歷史學家們」─華盛頓郵報

美國前總統歐巴馬是美國歷史上第一位非裔總統,選前和當選後呼聲都很高,八年任內完成了不少承諾民眾的任務,本書即是列出歐巴馬任內的政績並加以說明。

歐巴馬上任時,美國經濟衰退嚴重,失業率高,任內他推動經濟改革,降低失業率;任內為了解決美國境內醫療費用逐年升高的問題,積極推動平價醫療法案,造福廣大美國民眾;增加以風力、太陽能等產生的能源的使用比例,推動綠色能源的使用,減輕環境負擔,並且為了針對全球暖化的巴黎公約也下了不少苦功。

除了上述政績,歐巴馬完成的項目更多,支持歐巴馬的讀者絕對不能錯過,而對歐巴馬有疑慮的讀者也可以透過這本書,再次檢視歐巴馬總統任內的努力。

A Consequential President by Michael D'Antonio is a bold assessment of the lasting successes and major achievements of President Obama.

Had he only saved the U.S. economy with his economic recovery act and his program to restore the auto industry, President Obama would have been considered a successful president. He achieved so much more, however, that he can be counted as one of our most consequential presidents.

With The Affordable Care Act, he ended the long-running crisis of escalating costs and inadequate access of treatment that had long-threatened the well-being of 50 million Americans. His energy policies drove down the cost of power generated by the sun, the wind, and even fossil fuels. His efforts on climate change produced the Paris Agreement, the first treaty to address global warming in a meaningful way, and his diplomacy produced a dramatic reduction in the nuclear threat posed by Iran. Add the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, the normalization of relations with Cuba, and his "pivot" toward Asia, and President Obama's triumphs abroad match those at home.

Most importantly, as the first African-American president, he navigated race relations and a rising tide of bigotry, including some who challenged his citizenship, while also fighting a Republican Party determined to make him one-term president.

As a result, Obama's greatest achievement was restoring dignity and ethics to the office of the president, proof that he delivered his campaign promise of hope and change.
