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.

Guessing Games

(Fox News) - While environmental groups and the United Nations have predicted stronger and more frequent hurricanes in the future because of global warming — one hurricane forecaster is downgrading its predictions for this summer — because of cooler than expected water temperatures in the Atlantic.

WSI — a major forecasting service used by both FOX News and CNN — is predicting 14 named storms will produce six hurricanes — three of them major. That's down from 15 storms — eight hurricanes and four major. Last year forecasts of significant hurricane activity proved to be unfounded following the major storms of 2005.
