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.

Watching Ronald Reagan take the oath and the band playing Hail to the Chief still gives me goose bumps. Reagan had the presidental look.

Reagan was a good man. He was the perfect man for the job of president during that time in history. The mid to late 70's was a depressing and gloomy time in America. It's no surprise that Jimmy Carter, a depressing and gloomy character himself, was president during that time. Reagan saw the glass as half full, whereas Carter saw the glass half empty. This country was ready to kick butt and take names in 1980, and we found our leader in Reagan. May he rest in peace.
