Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Detainee Compromise is Bad News for Dems


Judging by the reaction of the New York Times and Washington Post editorial pages, one would think that Jed Babbin's characterization of this deal as a "near-total win for the White House" is perhaps not that far away from the truth. The title of The Post's editorial ("The Abuse Can Continue") reveals just how far away they are from the average American on this issue. People on the street don't see these interrogations of terrorist suspects as "abuse" but rather what our operatives "have to do" to get the job done and to protect us from Islamic religious fanatics determined to kill as many innocent Americans as possible.
