My tax dollars pay for lots of things I don't agree with. What's a few dollars in taxes to help pay for educational programming for your children and hundreds of thousands of others? Seems like a small price to pay.
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.
