Actually, it was just a spin story to make the President look "tough!" LOL!
The White House on Wednesday said Mr. Obama exercised his right to send back to the Capitol a temporary appropriations bill that lawmakers passed in case a winter storm about two weeks ago would have prevented them from approving a final measure to fund the Pentagon next year. The Dec. 19 blizzard didn't keep them away from the Capitol and they approved the $626 billion defense spending bill before the previous budget expired.
The White House described the move as a technicality that the President took out of an abundance of caution, and that it was his first veto.

Because the non-conservative outlets that I found this story on all "conveniently" left out the part in red, and didn't mention that this wasn't a veto that actually mattered!
"Obama Issues First Veto Threat"
Lisa--Why do I get the feeling you are going to continue to "split hairs" over everything I say?! LOL
