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.

Truth vs. Propaganda

(Fox News) - Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus says global warming hysteria is a prime example of what he calls the "truth versus propaganda problem."

Klaus writes in the Financial Times: "As someone who lived under communism for most of his life, I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious environmentalism, not in communism."

He quotes an MIT scientist who says future generations will wonder in bemused amazement why the world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree.

I really like Vaclav Klaus... He's the only leader that's speaking common sense on this issue.
