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: Stokes may re-open health clinic soon

"We have such a nice building. That building being up and running is a front-burner issue for me," said Commissioner Stanley Smith. "When can I pull over there and get a shot?"
Can't Stanley Smith afford to go to a private doctor and get a shot??? This is government-run health care on the local level... I'm sure Hillary Clinton would be proud of Stokes County. Maybe Ron Carroll will have a fundraiser for her there at the clinic.
