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.

Obama’s Position on Fundamental Change Changes Fundamentally

(By Jim Geraghty, The Campaign Spot) - Obama’s position on fundamental change has . . . well, fundamentally changed.

Right before Election Day 2008:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

But the way [Ryan's] plan achieves those goals would lead to a fundamentally different America than the one we’ve known certainly in my lifetime. In fact, I think it would be fundamentally different than what we’ve known throughout our history.
Follow the logic: In October 2008, America needed to change itself, fundamentally. Now, the Ryan plan is dangerous, because it would fundamentally change the way America has been since its founding.
