Obama Making Push to Take Back Congress

President Obama "is taking the most specific steps of his administration in an attempt to ensure the election of a Democratic­-controlled Congress in two years," the Washington Post reports.

"Obama, fresh off his November reelection, began almost at once executing plans to win back the House in 2014, which he and his advisers believe will be crucial to the outcome of his second term and to his legacy as president. He is doing so by trying to articulate for the American electorate his own feelings -- an exasperation with an opposition party that blocks even the most politically popular elements of his agenda."
