Thanks, George!

Looks like our illustratious president is about to issue veto #3, this time for hate crimes legislation:

"The Administration favors strong criminal penalties for violent crime, including crime based on personal characteristics, such as race, color, religion, or national origin.

"However, the Administration believes that H.R. 1592 is unnecessary and constitutionally questionable."

[Technically, the Office of the President didn't say Bush PLANS TO veto it. It said his senior advisers would recommend that he veto it. While this may amount to the same thing in practice, it's different wording. See http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/legislative/sap/110-1/hr1592sap-h.pdf.]
