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

New anti-Obama TV ads to appear in Iowa today

(By Jennifer Jacobs, www.DesMoinesRegister.com) - New anti-Obama television advertisements begin running in Iowa today that predict a stark economy in 2017 if the president is re-elected.

The Republican National Committee today released the final television ad in its month-long “Change Direction” economic messaging campaign.

The advertisements are airing in battleground states President Barack Obama won in 2008 but where the RNC thinks Obama is vulnerable this election cycle: Iowa, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana and Ohio.

In the ad, a little girl in pink sits on a couch with a remote control, flipping past news channels broadcasting grim economic news.
