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: Bush & Immigration...

Come on, Steve... We don't need comments like that either.

I just call them as I see them, Andy. With Bush wandering around different venues, alternately smirking and barking, but in both cases saying the same stupid things over and over again, the choices are that he's either autistic or he's certifiably nuts. The latter scares me, the former not so much. Take your pick.

Or would you rather believe that Bush is actually not the simpleton puppet of the neo-cons he appears to be, but is genuinely evil? He has done genuinely evil things. He has contributed more to the destruction of the constitutional republic than any President since Roosevelt, maybe since Lincoln. He has just about single-handedly wiped out the Reagan revolution. He stomps around, babbling platitudes while we are invaded by an army of people who don't all bear us good will, and all so his pals can hire cheap labor. Worst of all, he has embarked the U.S. on a course that puts us in the way of Soviet-style imperialism and adventurism. This is real evil, much more so than Bubba Clinton's hillbilly Mafia tactics.

When I call him stupid, I guess I'm just giving him the benefit of the doubt.
