Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

American Terrorism

Behethland responds to Steve:

And I see your point, as well. But I didn't mean a government-supported terrorist organization, necessarily. I was referring to the Klan and other white supremacists. Cross burnings are certainly a form of terrorism. The Oklahoma City Bombing is classified as an act of terrorism. Certainly, the Aryan Nation is a terrorist group and quite active. Gangs are terrorists. To say that the US doesn't have terrorist activity is to have a very narrow view of what terrorism is.
