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

United Nations: Pro-American or Anti-American?

Fox News

The latest FOX News poll shows a striking difference in how the political parties feel about the United Nations. Thirty percent more Republicans say the U.N. is anti-American than say it's pro-American, and 15 percent more independents believe the group is anti-U.S. than those who believe it's pro-U.S. But a plurality of Democrats — 33 percent — say the U.N. is pro-American, compared to 24 percent who say it's anti-American.

Meanwhile, President Bush may have vowed to get Usama bin Laden, but he's getting most of the blame for failing to capture the Al Qaeda leader. Thirty-two percent of those surveyed blame the Bush administration for failing to get bin Laden, while just 22 percent fault President Clinton.
