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.

Bush, Oil, and Liberals

And you're sure that his legacy does not include taking really good care of his oil business buddies and other Bush team cronies?

I'm going to ask this again, even though I know I won't get an answer. Can you provide even the slightest bit of evidence that the Iraq War or any aspect of the War on Terror has benefited Bush's "oil business buddies" one iota? Can you provide even the most miniscule shred of proof that Bush has embarked our military on this mission with the intent of providing benefit to said buddies?

Furthermore, why is it you guys on the left never take Bush to task for providing benefit to his "agriculture business buddies" via the obscene increase in farm subsidy funding or for providing benefit to his "pharmaceutical business buddies" via the outrageous and immoral Medicare drug benefit funding? I can answer that. It's because those windfalls are the result of government largesse which nominally is supposed to benefit some class of people that leftists have adopted as mascots. You people have been so indoctrinated into the belief that government programs are intrinsically flawless that you are willing to ignore the unmerited favor generated for some sector of the economy that regularly takes advantage of said largesse.

Steve, why would "some liberal" try (again) to give you any evidence of the blatent relationship between the bush ADMINISTRATION (i.e., CHeney), major energy companies, and the war? So you can provide another irrational "stop copying Michael Moore" nana-booboo BS response? (Moore might be a jack-ass, but that doesn't make him a liar.)

But seriously, what's the point? You're obviously too deeply shrouded in denial to listen to reason.

And "why don't we take him to task for agriculture?" you ask. Well let's briefly compare these apples and oranges:

Since 2003-
War: Hundreds of billions of dollars and counting....
AG: A mere fraction of the cost....
War: 2,000+ dead US soldiers & 25,000+ dead Iraqi CIVILIANS...
AG:0 dead soldiers & 0 dead civilians
War: gives the US a bad reputation in the world...
AG: Can't worsen the rep the war has alresy given to us...
I could go on & on... but... finally between serving as secretary of defense during the first gulf war and VP during the second gulf war, Cheney served as CEO of Halliburton. Halliburton recieved multi-billion dollar contracts from the US govt. to clean up in Iraq, not to help grow corn in Iowa.

Are you naive or just in denial, dude?
