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.

McConnell: “A real solution is unattainable” as long as Obama is president

(By Tina Korbe, Hot Air) - It was a floor speech to be quoted and re-quoted. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) this morning spoke movingly about Republicans’ commitment “to choose a path that actually reflects the will of the people” when it comes to an agreement about a debt limit increase (or lack thereof).

That path, he said, will include the responsible fulfillment of obligations on the debt — but it will also entail an ongoing commitment to pressure the administration to “rein in Washington — not to freeze it into place.”
