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.

Neil Cavuto Knows Nancy Pelosi And “She Ain’t No Martin Luther King”

(By Colby Hall, Mediaite) - How big of a deal is health care reform? Democrats have been liberally comparing passing of health care legislation with the civil rights movement of the 60’s. Some see that as an apt comparison, others see it as both a pretty big reach and/or an example of hubris. This was the topic today when Neil Cavuto was interviewing Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX).

Nancy Pelosi Was Right

(The Corner) -
Nancy Pelosi was correct when she said that we have to pass the health-care-reform bill in order to find out what's in it.

Now that the bill has been safely passed and signed into law, the mainstream press is gradually revealing the scores of delightful provisions tucked away in the 2,700 page abomination: job-killing taxes on businesses, innovation-killing taxes on medical products, suffocating regulations on individual freedoms, wealth-sapping taxes on the middle-class, unprecedented intrusions on personal privacy, unconstitutional mandates on individuals, racially discriminatory preferences for favored groups, a Ponzi-scheme-on-steroids financing mechanism, and spending on a galactic, incomprehensible scale.

And that's just the first 600 pages. But somewhere in this heaping pile of manure there just has to be a pony.
