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.

Is Ingraham pathetic???

If the president does something that you think is a bad idea, I'm sure you have the courage to address it, or at least not deny it, rather than to try to alter the real story or throw up a smokescreen, as Ingraham is doing.
I'll zing whoever, regardless of age, race, gender, etc... I don't discriminate. :-)

I don't believe Ingraham is throwing up a smokescreen... I believe she is making legitimate points.

And I think that the general consensus is that they, reporters from the press, are; that is how a number of them as well as other non-military types are getting attacked, kidnapped and/or killed.
I believe the general consensus is they aren't... Why else is viewership and subscriptions to the "old" media outlets are falling???

Do right-wing pundits like Ingraham and Limbaugh really have such little confidence in the US military - the strongest military force in the world - that they think a bunch of no-good reporters are more powerful in their supposed efforts of self-defeat and erroneous reporting? That 'the Press' is the reason why we're losing Bush's war?
I believe conservative commentators like Ingraham and Limbaugh have all the confidence in the world in our US military; they just don't like how they or their mission is being portrayed in the "old" media. Let's face it, the "old" media portrays our soldiers as committing torture and practically being terrorists themselves. By the way, I personally don't believe we're losing the war over in Iraq. I'm more worried about losing it here at home... That's what the terrorists over there want.

The Bush Administration and those who helped make this war a reality are the ones to be held over the fire here, not a bunch of TV network field reporters - that's what's pathetic here. It just goes to show that the last of the pro-Bush pundits are out of all realistic arguments to defend their man.
Just because you don't agree with her doesn't make her arguments unrealistic... I believe she made some valid points.
