Congress overrides Bush veto on water bill.
But I’m not sure if it’s worth mentioning the “Democratic-controlled” Congress, per the article below. The Dems need to come a long, long way back before they get credit for standing up to the president, or their campaign promises.
The 79-14 vote included 34 Republicans who defied the president. Enactment was a foregone conclusion, but it still marked a milestone for a president who spent his first six years with a much friendlier Congress controlled by his Republican Party.
Now he confronts a more hostile, Democratic-controlled legislature, and Thursday’s vote showed that most of the Republicans will defy him on spending matters dear to their political careers.
