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

Ron Paul Describes ‘Confrontation’ With Rick Perry On GOP Debate Stage

(By Colby Hall, Mediaite) - During the break of the GOP debate on Wednesday night, Texas Governor Rick Perry left his own podium to address his fellow Texan, Rep. Ron Paul. A photographer captured the exchange, which appeared to be rather spirited given the body language and serious mien captured by the photo journalist. Some of Ron Paul’s remarkably loyal fan base saw the images and, in some far reaches of the Internet, proclaimed that he had been “assaulted,” a narrative that was then picked up by Fox News’ Carl Cameron. But what really happened?

During a rather nondescript campaign appearance last night, Rep. Paul discussed the exchange in question amidst the clattering of cleared plates and silverware and overeager laughter from his supporters. Turns out that Paul didn’t even recall the exchange in question, but did not that there were no “cross words” between the fellow Texans.

Watch the charmingly doddering story shared by Rep. Paul below:
