Bully Pulpit

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.

Team Romney Launches 'Mothers Day' Attack on Team Obama

(Fox Nation) - Restore Our Future has released a new ad highlighting the associations between President Obama and supporters who have said misogynistic things about Republican women.

From the description...

Ann Romney raised 5 boys. She successfully battled breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. But what does White House insider Hilary Rosen say about Ann Romney? "Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life." And Bill Maher, who gave $1 million supporting Obama, attacks: "Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house." Happy Mother's Day from Barack Obama's Team!

Mr. Romney should be a shoo-in for the "Bully Pulpit," hmm? I am finding many pundits far too forgiving, not necessarily of the peccadilloes of youth but of Romney's current characterizations of all those little episodes as "pranks." At least some of Mitt's fellow "pranksters" still remembered, as adults, the hair-cutting incident, and one spontaneously apologized to the victim. This is the action of someone worthy to be president; the self-serving memory lapse of Mr. Romney is certainly not. We do not need a president who needs to be educated about what we, in modern times, call bullying. We do not need a Bully-In-Chief.

Let's hope that stay-at-home mom Ann Romney (full disclosure: I, too, stayed at home) has done a better job civilizing her brood of boys.
