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

‘Selfishness’: Obama Wages New Attack On Those Who Don’t Want Higher Taxes

"John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic. You know I don't know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."
Barack Obama

From PowerLine:

Today, Barack Obama accused those who don't want him to raise their taxes of "selfishness."

This is a classic inversion of the truth, liberal style. It is not selfish to want to keep money that you earned. What is selfish is to try to steal someone else's money, whether that is done by breaking into his house or by voting for Barack Obama and other Democrats.

It is collectivism that is amoral. Anyone who believes they have some right to the fruits of my labor, whether for themselves or someone else, is no different than a common thief.

However, Palin and McCain are no less socialistic than Obama, as far as I can tell. Obama spouts rank Marxism, but the Republicans charge him with the lesser offense of socialism in order to hide their own sins.
