Well, He wanted it and today the House joined the senate and passed the expansion of the warrantless wiretapping powers.  Of course, it’s not a total White House victory because they did manage to limit how long the thing will be effective.  Unless Congress renews it, it will expire in six months.  In my opinion, that expiration date is not soon enough by several years.

HOUSE OKS BUSH EAVESDROPPING BILL

The House has handed President Bush a victory, voting to expand the government’s
abilities to eavesdrop without warrants on foreign suspects whose communications pass
through the U.S. Mr. Bush asked Congress to stay in session until it was passed.
