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.

Tea Party debate turns into Perry pile-on

(By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air) - Last night’s debate turned into a fine donnybrook at times, as the candidates took off the gloves and started landing a few blows.  As one would expect, and as many of us expected for 'last' week’s debate, most of the Republicans on stage took aim at the undisputed front-runner, Rick Perry, and this time they scored points.  Perry remained cool under fire, but two issues may have lost him a few Tea Party voters in the audience.  Will it have an impact, or will Perry maintain his momentum as he did after his initial foray into the fire?
