I'm not doubting you Sandy, but I have a hard time understanding how we can have three conservatives on the board and not get to a revenue neutral budget. I suspect part of the problem is that you haven't managed to institute zero-based budgeting, but that's just a guess.
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.
