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.

Shocking Video Shows 35-Year-Old Dad Violently Beating Teen

(By Billy Hallowell, The Blaze) - In what seems like a scene from “Fight Club,” a disturbing video shows a 35-year-old Florida man violently beating a teenager. The shocking footage was apparently taken after the man, Gary Johnson, allegedly setup a fight between his son and another teen.

But rather than simply allowing the young men to duke it out (not that this should be encouraged, anyway), Johnson purportedly jumped in to defend his son, repeatedly kicking and punching a 16-year-old boy.

Some sources claim that Johnson, who did not have a prior legal history, initially told the two boys that he would be willing to monitor a fight between them. But that doesn’t seem to be how the incident unfolded, and Johnson‘s violent attack didn’t end until his son — who apparently quit the fight before his father joined in — pulled Johnson off of the victim. A woman can be heard (and briefly seen) yelling in horror.
