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: RE: 48 Urban Trailblazers

Steve: Here's a news flash for you, teacher-lady: teaching ain't hard work and lots of people have hard lives. I expect you'd also be shocked to learn that most of the wounds are self-inflicted as well.

Now, now — calm down, Steve. By the way, what exactly is hard work to you, Steve? What isn't besides teaching?

Regarding hard lives, I don't think that these kids have much to do with their households being one-parent environments or the financial situations they were born into... hardly self-inflicted wounds for most of them.

But yeah, for the most part, this article is what it is.
