Obama getting more confrontational

David PlouffeOn the heels of victorys on healthcare reform, a nuclear-arms agreement with the Russians, and student loans, President Obama seems to be getting more willing to be confrontational with Congressional foes.  Political science Professor Graham Wilson, author of “Only in America? American Politics in Comparative Perspective,” says it appears the 2008 campaigning Obama is back.

“Is this because key adviser David Plouffe [above] is back with him? The change in style seems to coincide with Plouffe’s return. Certainly the days of Obama being a punching bag for the Republicans seem to be over.”
