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

‘You Got a Name?’: Feisty Rick Perry Demands Politico Journalist ‘Out His Source’

(By Becket Adams, The Blaze) - Having recently published a fistful of stories that claim Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign has fallen into disarray and that his staffers are blaming one another, Politico’s Mike Allen tried to get the Texas governor to comment on the reports.

However, Allen appears to be unprepared for what happens next.

“Governor, some of your staffers have told us that you ran this as a gubernatorial campaign for too long and you didn’t look big enough, get big enough, fast enough,” said Mike Allen. “Do you take some responsibility?”

“I don‘t know who you’re talking to,” said a slightly smirking Perry, “So I can’t respond unless you give me a name.”
