House Ignores Bush & Overrides Veto

Ha! Ha ha! Please excuse my childlike glee, but after Bush vetoed the bill meant to provide medical care for poor children, it is just so darned satisfying to hear that the House has taken a stand against yet another blatantly partisan gesture of a dying Presidency (in this case, the vetoing of a $23 billion water resources bill). This is the first time that the House has overruled Bush’s executive power of Veto — by a margin of 361 to 54 — and it’s like a breath of fresh air after the sometimes-horrifying encroachments we’ve seen from the Executive Branch over the past seven years. It really makes me proud to see Checks & Balances in action, at their finest. Hurray!
