DSCC Memo: Marginalize GOP Candidates as Tea Party Candidates
"They're telling their candidates to go very early against republicans, seeing if there is a way to target them as conservative. To marginalize them as tea party candidates."
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.
