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.

Operation Barbarossa Anniversary - John Murtha/Kerry

From Jay S. Parsons:

Hey Andy: Maybe you will want to post this at The Bully Pulpit.

On this the 65th anniversary (22 June 1941) of the start of Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of The Soviet Union by Germany, it is fitting to remember how Adolf Hitler's experience with military service translated into his own political judgment and management of military affairs as he presided over the utter destruction of Germany (in large part as a consequence of invading The USSR). Hilter served in the German Army in WWI and he argued his own legitimacy as the leader of Germany upon the experience he acquired during such service. Perhaps John Murtha and John Kerry should reconsider the validity of arguing for military service as a condition precedent to legitimate opinions about both military campaigns and the political consequences of such campaigns, they might be accused of sounding like someone else.
