For the misc ping list
President Cleveland had over 400 vetoes in a little over 4 years?
Do you think he and Congress weren't on the same page?
LOL. You could certainly say that.
Did you notice that you have to go all the way back to the 19th Century to find anyone with fewer vetoes that Dubya?
Now how about a list of how many phone sex calls made or recieved other than with spouse
FDR was busy ...
You have to go back to a pre-Civil War President...
Garfield doesn't count. He really wasn't in office long enough to make an impact unfortunately.
I know. He was only in for 6 months before he got assassinated.
I don't agree with everything he has signed, but I will say that it says something either about Congress or this President that he hasn't had very many vetoes used.
It's probably a combination of things.
I noticed. LOL.
I don't know how I got along without the Internet. :)
Thanks be to algore. :)
I posted a thread about "Presidential Signing Statements" several months ago.
It got very few posts I think.
Why veto when you can minimize the effect of Legislation by using Presidential clout?
I like that practice myself.
