Presidents don't typically veto much when their party controls Congress.
Do you really think the republican Party really controlled Congress?
Robert Byrd controlled it more than the republicans.
The Republicans cant even control their bowels on capitol hill. Lousy leadership and RINO's took away any hoppe thay may have had to run Congress. They let Byrd tell them the rules and they went by them. Watch how fast those rules change now with the democrats back in the majority.
