Obama Plans Aggressive Speech

President Obama's State of the Union speech "will be less a presidential olive branch than a congressional cattle prod," Politico reports.

"Emboldened by electoral victory and convinced the GOP is unwilling to cut deals, Obama plans to use his big prime-time address Tuesday night to issue another broad challenge at a Republican Party he regards as vulnerable and divided, Democrats close to Obama say."

"He'll pay lip service to bipartisanship, but don't expect anything like the call for peaceful collaboration that defined his first address to a joint session of Congress in 2009, they say."
