Analysis: Obama shows combativeness entering second term but risks await

• Reuters
 The latest sign: his decision to defy a concerted campaign against his choice for defense secretary. 

The Democratic president, re-elected in November, unveiled a more combative approach during the end-of-year "fiscal cliff" taxes and spending drama, exploiting disarray in Republican ranks that underscored Washington's legislative dysfunction.


Obama also showed a "get-tough" strategy in his determination to pursue gun control after last month's massacre of schoolchildren by a gunman in Newtown, Connecticut.
