“I know a lot of people are upset with Santorum doing this Operation Chaos business. I get the email. People are upset Santorum is crossing the aisle and trying to get Democrats to vote in the primary today. Maybe I’m in the minority here, but, as the original architect of Operation Chaos, I don’t have any problem with it if it’s done for the right reason.”
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.
