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.

Video of Democrat Omitting, "Under God", While Leading the Pledge of Allegiance on the House Floor

(By Tom Hawks, The Hawk Report) - Thanks to a pissed off MN CD 4 voter for finding this gem and sharing with us. What you will see is a sad display of disrespect by a United States Congresswoman from Minnesota, Democrat Betty McCollum. It is a video that Betty does not want her voters to see, but it's too late Betty, you have been exposed.

After watching this video you will see how obvious it is that she intentionally omitted the words, "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. At the time, her staffers claimed she took a breath, but with the video now out, the lie has been exposed. She intentionally omitted the phrase.

What really makes this an affront to all is that she was actually leading the pledge on the floor of the House. If she were just saying it as a part of the whole chamber it would have been fine. However, by omitting the words, "under God", she was actually showing her disrespect to her position, the Flag, God and the American people. Oh, did I mention that she likes to brag about her Catholic faith when running for re-election?
