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

Nancy Pelosi Supports Part of Alberto Gonzales' Testimony

(Fox News) - Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller Tuesday accused Attorney General Alberto Gonzales of perjury over Gonzales' testimony about a White House meeting in March of 2004 — in which a group of congressional leaders was briefed on the impending deadline to reauthorize the president's terrorist surveillance program.

Gonzales said the consensus in the room was that it should continue, despite the objections of acting Attorney General James Comey.

Rockefeller said Gonzales did not brief the leaders on the deadline, and that he was — "making something up to protect himself." He said he had no idea at the time who Comey even was. But one official who was at the meeting tells FOX News that Gonzales' account is accurate.

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed that such a briefing had occurred, that Comey's objections had been discussed. Indeed, she said she agreed with Comey.
