Glory, Glory

I almost don't believe it, but there it is, in black and white:

Bush threatens to veto Iraq funding bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush threatened on Tuesday to veto a bill to fund the Iraq war and Hurricane Katrina rebuilding if its cost exceeds $92.2 billion, as he weighed in on a heated Senate debate over the bill's rising price tag.

The veto threat, announced in a White House statement on the $106.5 billion emergency spending measure, was aimed at placating conservatives in Bush's Republican Party who are irate over extra items added that they deem as "special-interest" spending.
Of course, actions speak louder than words:
Bush has not vetoed a bill in his more than five years in office.
At this point it's just a threat. But maybe, just maybe, it's also the beginning of a movement.
