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.

Mitt Romney Goes Nuclear In First Negative TV Ad, “Newt Gingrich Cashed In” On Freddie Mac

TAMPA, Florida (BuzzFeed) — Mitt Romney's campaign released it's first negative ad of the cycle, which will begin airing in Florida this week, slamming Newt Gingrich on his ties to Freddie Mac.

Titled "Florida Families," the ad asserts that Gingrich "cashed in" working for Freddie Mac while Floridians struggled after the housing crisis.

Gingrich ended his relationship with the government-backed lender as the housing market was in decline, and Romney is calling on him to return the $1.7 million in fees he took from the company.

It's the first anti-Gingrich campaign ad released by the campaign, though many have been released by the pro-Romney Super PAC "Restore Our Future."
