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.

Bill leaves House leery

Immigration change called tough subject

By Mary M. Shaffrey
Winston-Salem Journal


The Senate is expected to pass an immigration bill next week that will give illegal immigrants a chance at citizenship.

Some senators, including Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., say they think that provision will stop any progress toward the passage of an immigration bill this year.

"It will incorporate a degree of amnesty that I think is impossible to conference with the House of Representatives, so I don't think at the end of this process we're going to get a bill that is signed into law," he said.
