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

Flip-Flop: Crist Now Says He Would Have Voted For ObamaCare

(Breitbart.tv) - Flashback: The Associated Press, 3/21/10 : “Crist, a Republican who was in Tampa tonight attending the closing ceremony for the Gasparilla International Film Festival, said he hopes to get elected senator in November to help repeal the bill and bring a commonsense approach to healthcare reform. ‘What people really want when it comes to health care, in my view, is they want greater access and less cost,’ Crist said. ‘We just need to get it right and do it right,’ Crist said. ‘Do it right for the people.’”

Crist says he 'misspoke' on healthcare

(By Shane D'Aprile, The Hill's Ballot Box) - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (I) is walking back comments he made in an interview earlier today about the recently enacted healthcare law.

Crist is mounting an independent bid for Senate against Republican Marco Rubio and Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek.

Crist told a local TV station Friday that he would have voted in favor of President Obama's healthcare proposal were he in the Senate. That was a reversal of his previous position against the healthcare law.

"I would have voted for it," Crist said in the interview. "But I think it can be done better, I really do."

But now, Crist says he "misspoke" in that interview. His campaign sent out a statement Friday afternoon clarifying Crist's position on the healthcare law.
