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: House Votes to Keep Offshore Drilling Ban

And yet, these politicians will complain the loudest when energy prices go up.

The problem is that residents of coastal states don't want to see this happening on their own coasts... just someone else's. Representatives of those states must keep that in mind if they're to truly represent the will of their state's residents.

And, as I stated before, there are silver linings to energy price increases. It can only encourage the development of new energy sources as well as encourage the practice of energy conservation among Americans too preoccupied to do so otherwise.
