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

What debt crisis? President Obama heads off to be serenaded by Jennifer Hudson for lavish 50th birthday celebration

Obama Partying With Millionaires and Corporate Jet Owners at Lavish Birthday Fundraiser

(By Paul Bentley, UK Mail Online) -
With hindsight, a low-key dinner with close family and friends would probably have been more appropriate.

There has been speculation for days as to whether the President was going to make it to his own fundraising 50th birthday party - a lavish affair at a $40,000 a night ballroom in Chicago, with Dreamgirls star Jennifer Hudson booked to sing for the birthday boy.

But with the announcement last night that a debt deal had been agreed, it finally appears as if the party is back on.
