After 15 days in a carefree island paradise, it’s back to reality for President Obama.
Obama returns from vacation to a chilly Washington on Sunday, staring down a long legislative agenda and simmering foreign crises, and with a desire to seal his legacy over the next two years. …
The president isn’t sticking around long, however. Obama plans to hit the road Wednesday for a three-day travel blitz that officials describe as a sort of preemptive State of the Union.
The president “will highlight the progress we have made in the economy and he will announce policies that he will highlight in the State of the Union address to push us forward,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.
The president plans to visit Detroit on Wednesday and Phoenix on Thursday, and then travel to Tennessee with Vice President Biden on Friday, Schultz said. …
In an interview, Schultz said the president plans “big, bold, decisive action” in 2015, in many cases circumventing Congress as he did with executive authority last year. “We’re going to run that same play,” he said.
