Bush should call their bluff

Tony Snow says Bush should call the bluff of the Democrats by seeking legislation authorizing him to continue doing what he is doing as far as surveillance in the war on Islamic terror.

I think that is a bad idea. He already has the legal authority from the Constitution. To ask Congress for authorization would weaken the presidency and suggest he was somehow wrong in the past.

I do think he should call their bluff, however. The GOP should make this the essential issue of the Congressional and Senate races in November. And Bush should be the point man making the case. Dems want to fight on this issue. Let's have at it.
