President Barack Obama has taken to the presidential bully pulpit and the campaign trail in bringing the fight to Republican challenger Mitt Romney and the Tea Party-dominated Congress.

the president told thousands of cheering partisans at what aides insisted was his first full-fledged political rally of the election year.
