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.

Obama: We’re better off with my policies than four years ago

(By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air) - As Jim Geraghty says, it all depends on your definition of “better.”  Do we have more jobs?  No.  Do we have lower unemployment?  No.  Do we have a more balanced federal budget? No.  Do we have increasing household income? No.

Hope and change, baby!

Well, you know, I think we are better off now than we would have been if I hadn’t taken all the steps that we took. I don’t think the country is stronger yet then it was when the economy was still booming and we didn’t have Wall Street crisis, and we didn’t have the housing bubble burst. But, we’ve made steady progress, we just need to make more.
