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

Liberal Rep & DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL): It's 'Baloney' to Say Stimulus Didn't Work

(CNSNews.com) - Public pensions have not dragged down state budgets, and the "mantra that the Recovery (stimulus) Act did not work is such baloney," Democrat Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Monday morning.

The Florida Democrat was plugging President Obama's jobs plan on Fox News. She said the plan would be paid for by "closing corporate loopholes," bringing jobs back to the U.S., and by raising taxes on the "wealthy and more fortunate."

"At the end of the day, we have to make sure that we don't continue to deepen our problems by laying off more teachers, firefighters and police officers. We have to make sure we put construction workers back to work like the American Jobs Plan would do by investing in the infrastructure we need, and we have to make sure that this is paid for by folks who are not paying their fair share now, making sure that the wealthy and more fortunate step up to the plate, and that's how we're going to get this done."
