President Obama is moving swiftly to try to recover from his worst week in the White House, speeding up his schedule for engaging in the 2010 political races and planning to use his State of the Union address on Wednesday to show the public a feisty side, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said in a telephone interview with POLITICO…

“The president’s feeling feisty,” Axelrod said. “He’s challenged by this mission, and he’s eager to pursue it. That should have been clear on Friday, and it’ll be clear [on Wednesday]. He’s going to make clear that the American people want to see Washington work, for Republicans and Democrats to work together to solve problems. We’re always open to that.”
