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

WATCH: Giant Dog Welcomes Soldier Home After Nine Months Apart

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - We’ve just learned that there is website called Welcome Home Blog that has daily videos of military homecomings. This is, of course, wonderful for anyone who wants to be reduced to a sobbing pile of tears on a daily basis but is tired of watching the end of 'Toy Story 3' over and over. Anyway, today’s video is pretty wonderful. Sure, it’s probably impossible to have a military homecoming video that isn’t wonderful, but this one’s a little different. In it, the returning soldier is greeted by his enormous dog who welcomes him with all the excitement one would normally expect from the more human members of the family.
