Ford 66, Bush 1

One of them may have been elected twice, while the other was never elected and held the office for just 896 days, but if there’s one area where President Bush lags President Ford, it’s in the use of the veto. From the NY Times obit:

[Ford] vigorously tried to control federal spending with vetoes of spending bills, starting his first week in office.

Ford exercised his veto power a total of 66 times, with 12 being overridden. President Bush is now 65 vetoes behind Ford, but the new Democratic Congress will offer him ample oppoutunities to catch up.
