Bully Pulpit

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

Hecklers Spew Profanity, Flip Off Crowd During Another Allen West Town Hall

BOCA RATON, Fla. (By Tory Dunnan, WPBF) - Police escorted a number of people out of a town hall meeting Wednesday night -- the second night in a row that U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., held what became a heated event.

"I think they're a bunch of jerks," said Anne Dion after police walked her outside. "That's what I think about being forced to leave."

Trouble was brewing even before the event started. Sign-carrying protesters were asked to leave private property.

West warned the crowd about lashing out.
