Obama Will Hit the Road in Battles with GOP

President Obama "intends to take a confrontational approach with Republicans in future economic battles by using the same campaign-style events the White House saw as effective in the 'fiscal-cliff' fight," The Hill reports.

"Many in Obama's party believe that he got the upper hand in the recent deal to avoid the mixture of across-the-board tax hikes and spending cuts, and that the aggressive approach helped build his public case."

The reasons: "his successful reelection; polling suggesting public support for many of his positions; and division among Republicans on Capitol Hill."
