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: What's next for NOLA?

I don't believe any of us could fathom the destruction that's really occured down there. And I believe the media is playing down the severity of what's really going on. It's so incredibly scary, that it's almost too much for us to take in.

Like the Superdome evacuation, for instance. How in the world are they going to evacuate nearly 25,000 people by bus and send them to the Houston Astrodome when the streets are flooded? Hwy. 10 is broken into little pieces. Dire situation.
