Veto Pen Flurries

Perhaps the lambasting that President Bush received from conservatives over his losing of the Presidential Veto Pen has finally started to bear fruit because the vetoes are flying now.

Last week he vetoed the bacon riddled Water Bill and just today he has vetoed the Human Services-Education Appropriations Bill, a measure replete with over 2,000 earmarks.

Why? Pork!

The President has proven to be no conservative when it comes to lavish spending schemes designed to persuade improvement out of systems that are essentially designed to fail such as the Medicare Program and the public education system. So I find great comfort in knowing that there are some wasteful measures even he won't support in its entirety.

Despite it being FOR THE CHILDREN!
