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

NJ Gov Chris Christie dozes off during Springsteen concert...

(New York Post) - Bruce Springsteen’s marathon, high energy gig at Madison Square Garden had a celebrity crowd rocking — except for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was caught dozing by fans.

Christie — an ardent Boss buff who’s said to have caught fellow New Jersey heavy-hitter Springsteen’s show more than 100 times — was seen snoozing by fellow fans in his MSG section.

“The governor was very active during the show,” said a spy. “Bruce started talking about ‘supporting food banks in New York and New Jersey,’ and ‘how people have been hit hard,’ and Christie was riveted. Then Bruce performed ‘Rocky Ground,’ and Christie visibly started fading.”
