Obama has already begun preparing for his annual State of the Union address to Congress on Jan. 20 – the agenda-setting speech that is his best chance to set the agenda for 2015 on his own terms.Republicans, emboldened by their sweeping victories in the November elections, have a different plan. After expanding their majority in the House of Representatives and winning the Senate, giving them full control of Congress for the first time of Obama's presidency, Republicans look forward to an all-out offensive against Obama's policies.Congress reconvenes after a series of high-profile presidential moves in the last six weeks of the year energized Obama – and infuriated Republicans.No matter what the Republican Congress passes, Obama retains the power to veto legislation, an action he's taken only twice in six years.
