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

Report: Oprah Winfrey Doesn’t Plan To Publicly Support Obama In 2012

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - This week President Obama officially launched his re-election campaign, yet according to some reports, one of his most prominent supporters from his first campaign will not be back for another ride. Oprah Winfrey apparently still supports the President privately, but in 2012 she will not be sharing her political views with her viewing audience.

According to PopEater:

“For 2012, much has changed for Oprah. She now has her own cable channel called OWN that has been struggling to find an audience – she isn’t going to do anything to alienate them. Unlike in 2008, when a drop in ratings didn’t matter as much for the queen of TV, Oprah is now fighting every day to get people to tune into OWN.”
Without the public support of one of the most powerful women in the world, might Obama be more vulnerable to a Republican challenger than originally imagined?
