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

Conservative Rep Allen West (R-FL): Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid ‘Have Dug Their Heels In’ Don’t Want To Hear Budget Solutions

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Republican Congressman Allen West appeared with Greta Van Susteren last night to discuss the possibility of a government shutdown. While West suggested there is enough blame to go around amongst politicians of both parties for the fiscal crisis we are in, he singled out some Senate Democrats as “definitely being obstructionist in this process.”

Allen West: “Mr. Schumer, Mr. Reid and Mr. Durbin, I think that they have dug their heels in and they don’t want to hear any type of solutions. And you have to also ask yourself who put us in this position with fiscal irresponsible policies – did not come up with a budget in the 111th Congress – but yet they continue to stonewall it and prevent us from moving forward.”
