Bush proposes a law giving him the right to "make unwarranted searches" into America's Internet usage.
Aides say the new legislation comes in the the wake of the president's realization that he does not yet monitor American's Ipod use or open all their email.
"Al Gore may have invented the Internet," Bush reportedly says, "Well, I'm gonna reinvent its use."
Analysts say this proposal may be the President's way of diverting attention away from the lackluster response to his revised Iraq policy.
"In a way, sending more troops makes it look like America failed," said a senior military official speaking under terms of anonymity.
"This will show people the president is going to use all our technological resources in the War Against Terror."
However, both Republicans and Democrats are skeptical about the new law, which has yet to be formally presented. They remember the Operation Iraqi Freedom Document Portal fiasco last fall, when it was reported that some Arabic documents on the site amounted to a nuclear primer.
"It's a new low," says Senator John Kerry. "This proposal truly combines the worst of his knowledge deficits. I don't think the President has ever so much as opened an AOL account." People outside the political world expressed reservations as well.
"It turns the president into a hacker," says Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft. "I'm just surprised he didn't slip this into a signing statement."
