Every Bush compromise is a loss for the Administration

The Monk does not understand why the President never learned that every compromise he makes with outraged Democrats just means he loses. First, there was the appointment of left-wing Clinton holdover Roger Gregory as a payment to get some of his judicial nominations through -- a ransom payment that still failed to break confirmation gridlock and a politicization of the process by Democrats that is despicable and unconstitutional.

The latest compromise was to put the terror surveillance program under FISA instead of resting upon the Executive's inherent power to protect the United States. That decision became a fiasco quickly -- the FISA court has been rejecting NSA communications intercept applications for calls and Internet activity between people outside the United States if the calls or computer activity is routed at some time through the United States.
