LAS VEGAS — President Barack Obama is putting people on notice: He's back from vacation feeling "refreshed, renewed, recharged" — and "a little feisty."

He immediately showed his feisty side.

At a Democratic fundraiser Monday night in Nevada, Obama declared himself ready for the challenge of dealing with a Republican Congress this fall that disagrees with him on the budget, energy policy and much more.

Obama said that as he'd ridden to the fundraiser with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, they'd spent some time figuring out how to deal with, in the president's words, "the crazies in terms of managing some problems."

The president didn't identify exactly who the two of them considered to be "crazies."

But Obama spoke at length about his differences with the GOP Congress.
