President Bush is second only to President Jefferson

Russell Roberts at Cafe Hayek has linked this in the USA Today.
"WASHINGTON — President Bush Thursday becomes the longest-sitting president since Thomas Jefferson not to exercise his veto, surpassing James Monroe."

Here's the mony quote from the article:
Bush said Tuesday that the veto threat has helped him reduce the rate of domestic spending: "One reason why I haven't vetoed any appropriation bills is because they met the benchmarks we've set."

Does he really wonder why he has lost the base and his ratings are in the tank?
