A Bush Civics Lesson: The Veto

I pay less attention to Bush than I used to, and so sometimes miss things like this:
That's why the President has a veto. Sometimes the legislative branch wants to go on without the President, pass pieces of legislation, and the President then can use the veto to make sure he's a part of the process. And that's -- as you know, I fully intend to do. I want to make sure -- and that's why, when I tell you I'm going to sprint to the finish, and finish this job strong, that's one way to ensure that I am relevant; that's one way to sure that I am in the process. And I intend to use the veto.
Scholars take note, this theory may be new to you.

"Sprint to the finish" - that's a beauty too.
