I have read elsewhere (Digby? FDL?) that a close reading of the Constitution says that Bush would have to return the bill to body where it originated and, since it's an appropriations bill, that's the House-- which is not in session.

By contrast, the Senate votes on nominees, and it is in session.

So, the pocket veto probably is technically legal. Slimy, but this is Bush we are talking about.
