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.

Steve opines:

Yet another cheerleader wishing upon a star.

I read through this article actually hoping to hear something that was convincingly good news. All I got was conjecture and wishful thinking.

I wonder if the people who write this junk realize how ridiculous this all sounds.

If you know anything about Ralph Peters, you know that he doesn't write junk. It's sad in that it's to the point now that if anything good comes out of Iraq, people like yourself will automatically say it's "wishful thinking" and "junk."
