    I think he is covering his bases. He is saying he cannot regular veto it because the H of R is not in session, but by sending the memorandum with his objections back to the H of R, he is making sure they understand he is vetoing the bill. He's trying to do both, a pocket veto and a real veto.

    Sadly, I think this entire situation has been misinterpreted and people are all in a fluff over the wrong thing. We need to stick to the fact that he is allowing a foreign government to dictate our laws! That is getting lost here. Since when do we allow foreign governments to dictate our laws?

      if the House were holding pro forma sessions too. It is not - so the fact that Bush had to cover his bases is understandable.

      The bigger outrage is, as you note, the outrage of allowing foreign governments to dictate our laws but of course it could be a backdoor way of covering up US wrongdoing through its entanglements with Sadam . .
