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

Sandra Fluke: Women in America Are Silenced

(By Katie Pavlich, Townhall) - Sandra Fluke, the woman who asked taxpayers to foot the bill for her birth control in February, just wrapped up her speech at the 2012 DNC. Her remarks were brief but typical, arguing a Romney presidency would set women back and leave women to die "preventable deaths in emergency rooms."

Fluke has become a center piece of the Obama campaign and is being used to represent women. She embraced a second term for President Obama saying, "In which our president stands with all women.”

But does President Obama really stand with "all women?" Fluke shot to fame after radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, for which he later apologized. President Obama called Fluke to offer his support, yet failed to call Sarah Palin, Bristol Palin or Michele Bachmann when "comedian" Bill Maher called them much worse.
