“I was thinking back during the first State of the Union Address by Bill Clinton and I thought, 'This guy can say things that aren’t true with greater conviction than anyone I’ve ever seen.' I honestly think that Obama is better."
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.
