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

Hawaii Democrats propose new law: $100 to see Obama’s birth records

HONOLULU (By MARK NIESSE, Associated Press) – Hawaii's government would charge $100 for a copy of President Barack Obama's birth records under a bill introduced in the state Legislature by five Democrats.

The bill would change a privacy law barring the release of birth records unless the person requesting them has a tangible interest.

The measure hasn't been scheduled for a public hearing, and it can't move forward unless that happens.

But the idea behind it is to end skepticism over Obama's birthplace while raising a little money for a government with a projected budget deficit exceeding $800 million over the next two years.
