Quack like a Bush

The Senate passed a highway bill over Bush's objections.

The Republican-controlled Senate brushed aside a presidential veto threat Tuesday and passed a $295 billion highway bill, arguing that massive spending on bigger and better roads was necessary to fight congestion and unsafe roadways.

The administration, while pressing Congress to pass a new highway bill, said the Senate version was too expensive in a time of war and debt and could result in the first veto of the Bush presidency.

Have you noticed that President Spendthrift turns into a real penny pincher when it comes to anything that actually helps Americans?
