Veto it anyway, George

Bob Novak writes:

Republican voters' concern about fiscal responsibility is mainly directed at reducing spending. However, Republican senators last week informed Bush he will be overridden if he vetoes a highway bill whose spending levels exceed his specifications.

Veto it, George, just to get into the habit. Keep on vetoing when Congress spends more and more then you request, because you, not them, get the blame for deficits. It'll be good for you and for the country.

  1. That it is good for the country is an argument that is unlikely to move GW Bush. GW wants credit for SAYING that he is against spending but he also wants credit for helping his party in Congress bring home the pork.
