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.

The Great Green Gaffe

The liberal green movement has no idea how to actually handle energy and environment issues. Conservatives know that Big Government cannot save the economy or the environment -- private solutions are the answer to both.

(By Chris Field, Townhall.com) -
While stumping for Rep. Timothy Bishop, D-N.Y., Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd that "every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive." These "great" government ideas include abysmal programs such as Social Security, the Post Office and public schools where only 35 percent of students are proficient in reading. Biden's misguided comments demonstrate the disturbing trend of turning to tax dollars and federal agencies to address problems that are best handled privately. Nowhere is this truer than with the Obama administration's plan to "win the future" through clean energy initiatives.
