Bully Pulpit

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

Bret Baier To Bill O’Reilly: Mitt Romney Thought My Interview Was ‘Overly Aggressive’

(By Alex Alvarez, Mediaite) - On Wednesday night, 'Factor host' Bill O’Reilly invited his colleague Bret Baier on to discuss Baier’s recent interview with GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. “Why are you asking this cat the same questions he’s been asked 800 times?” O’Reilly asked, basically.

Baier gamely explained why it was that he’d asked Romney about “RomneyCare.” Yes, again:

Well it lead, Bill, to another question about some of the statements that had been used in ads, both by the DNC and Jon Huntsman and others, that are current and in which he has, he says in these clips, that it’s a model for the nation. He’s been clear that health care in Massachusetts was, in his mind, for the state. But I wanted him to clear up some of these clips that have been out there. That’s why I went down that road. And he clearly got upset with the question.

He was irritated by the interview after we were done.
