So Bush is going to content himself with tinkering around with this socialist program that needs to be eliminated and continue to abrogate his responsibilities on every other front. So the circus that Congress has become will continue to lead the political dialog, such as it is.
Bush has become the lamest of all other lame ducks in recent memory. And he still has three and a half years left in his term.
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.
