President Obama revives fiery rhetoric for campaign season

By Ian Swanson – 01/16/10 07:26 PM ET

President Barack Obama this month has shifted from the measured tones he used throughout 2009 to push his policies, reviving his fiery campaign rhetoric that helped him win the White House.

Obama’s trip to Massachusetts on Sunday comes as he and his administration have adopted a more confrontational political tone.

In a departure from his olive branches to the GOP a year ago, Obama on Thursday welcomed a fight with Republicans on healthcare.

“Let me tell you something, if Republicans want to campaign against something by standing up for the status quo and for insurance companies over families and businesses, that is a fight I want to have,” Obama said Thursday.

The remarks to a House Democratic caucus were intended to rouse lawmakers increasingly worried about losing dozens of seats in November.

The announcement Friday that Obama will take a trip to Massachusetts to try to save Democrat Martha Coakley’s faltering Senate campaign shows the president is pulling out the stops to keep 60 Democratic seats in the upper chamber. If Coakley falls to Republican Scott Brown, it could have a devastating impact on Obama’s agenda for the rest of the year.
