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.

New McCain ad: Hey, you know who else blames Democrats for the mortgage mess?

(Hot Air) - Starring America’s favorite newly minted right-leaning independent. Viscerally enjoyable, although Obama’s led in the polls on the economy for so long that I wonder if he and the Dems aren’t bulletproof to charges like this by now. In fact, this plays more like a congressional ad than a presidential one, with The One making a brief cameo in his accustomed role: “Notably silent,” out of harm’s way, careful not to commit to a position too strongly lest it complicate life for him down the road. Which may explain why he didn’t phone a single House Democrat yesterday to push them to vote for the bailout he allegedly supports.
