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.

Plenty of cash for Pro-Perry Super-PAC

(By Tina Korbe, Hot Air) - Rick Perry’s GOP competitors are pounding him right and left, but I have a sneaking suspicion he’ll weather the storm — and not just because he has an outsized personality and a jobs record to make CEOs salivate. No, he won’t be at the mercy of his would-be rivals’ less-than-impressive, almost-laugh-out-loud-obvious ads for another reason entirely: Money. What makes campaigns go round.

Make Us Great Again, a pro-Rick Perry super PAC, has plenty of money to spare — and a strategy to ensure not a dollar goes to waste. “Plans for major ad blitzes to the tune of $45 million through the end of March and an additional $10 million after that”? I like the sound of it — provided Perry and Romney, at least, don’t weaken each other so severely as to render the other truly vulnerable in the general.

Although … if you recall, the 2008 Democratic primary was pretty bitter (I know a gal who almost didn’t give herself a chance to fall in love with her now-husband because 'she' worked for Hillary’s campaign and 'he' worked for Barack’s). That acerbic slog didn’t stand between O and the presidency. So, go to it, Make Us Great Again.
