President Bush enacts second veto

President Bush enacted the second veto of his term as President, vetoing the "Making emergency supplemental appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, and for other purposes" bill this afternoon. This is the bill that would have enacted a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq.

Want to know the President's reasons for rejecting the bill? You can read or watch his statement on the White House web site.
