‘BIOB’: McCain Slams ‘Blame it On Bush’ Syndrome in Obama Address
"What we're hearing tonight is the 'BIOB' -- let's call it that from now on -- 'Blame It On Bush.' Whatever has gone wrong, let's blame it on Bush."
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.
