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.

Stokes County Home Health will not be privatized

(The Stokes News) - [Leon] Inman delved into the history of Stokes County health care in his comments. “In 2002,” he said, “I was sworn into this position. . .I saw Social Services and Health cut drastically.” Inman went on to say that he had seen both agencies slowly but surely make significant gains until they were nearly back on track at present. He stated that he had been on the Home Health Advisory Board in the past and had seen the Home Health agency make a significant profit a few years back.

However, Inman then questioned if the purpose of the agency was to show a profit. “We don’t ask the Sheriff’s Department. . .to show a profit,” he said. With regard to Stokes County Home Health, he asked, “So what if it doesn’t show a profit this year?” His conclusion matched that of the other commissioners, “I’m not ready to privatize Stokes County Home Health.” The motion was made and seconded to move the issue to the action agenda that night.

Why is Leon Inman a Republican? He should go down to the Stokes County Board of Elections office ASAP and switch political parties. Can you believe his comments? No wonder the Republican Party is in such a sad state of affairs when we have so-called Republicans like Inman saying stuff one would hear from a liberal.
