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.

RE: Realities

Steve Brenneis opines:

Don just seems to get stranger and more obtuse with every passing day. Senility, maybe?

In Don's bizarre little world, the government has first right to the fruits of your labors and government-run schools are the holy grail. According to Don, utopia is right around the corner if we will just let the government get its paws on a little more of our money.

I wonder if Don's so-called "realities of running a government" include all the nest-feathering being done by Eastern Democrats. I wonder if Don recalls the recent flap, quickly buried by our local leftist media over the majority of the funds intended for storm damage relief in the Western part of the state somehow mysteriously ending up in Eastern counties.

Right, Don. Those Eastern Democrats sure are wonderful.
