I feel faint.

At first, I thought it was from actually going to the gym today.

Alas, it wasn't that. It was that President Bush actually vetoed a spending bill today.
U.S. President George W. Bush on Friday vetoed a popular bill that would authorize hundreds of water projects across the country, escalating a battle with congressional Democrats over domestic spending.

Bush had long threatened to veto the $23 billion bill, targeted for projects including coastal restoration in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina and improving the Florida Everglades, saying it was too expensive.

Democrats said they would try to override the president's veto as early as next week. The measure passed both houses with more than the two thirds majorities needed to override a presidential veto.

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino called the measure "fiscally irresponsible" and said Bush cast the fifth veto of his presidency before leaving for a trip to South Carolina.

5 entire vetos. Wow. He must have a cramp. And it would figure it's something that passed with enough votes for an override.

And how dare anyone in this administration call something "fiscally irresponsible". This entire Presidency has been fiscally irresponsible.
