Vermont towns vote to arrest Bush and Cheney

Voters in two Vermont towns on Tuesday approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against our Constitution," local media reported.

The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro in a state known for taking liberal positions on national issues, instructs town police to "extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them."

Vermont, home to maple syrup and picture-postcard views, is known for its liberal politics.

State lawmakers have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, and several towns have also passed resolutions of impeachment. None of them have caught on in Washington.

Bush has never visited the state as president, though he has spent vacations at his family compound in nearby Maine.

Roughly 12,000 people live in Brattleboro, located on the Connecticut River in the state's southeastern corner. Nearby Marlboro has a population of roughly 1,000.

  • Cheney will bitchslap those freaks into submission, and then claim the towns under emminent domain laws. Then he will transform it into a FEMA trailer park for displaced texas and louisiana hurricane victims. But he will leave the syrup trees. cheney like pancakes.

  • The thing that is real sad is these same people that go on about the Patriot Act and listening to phone calls would be all for it if Obama won. That is why so many times the Democrat party loses elections they are not Honorable. They don't keep there word. Back about 19 months ago Obama had some good Ideals now with all the CHANGE hell I don't know what he stands for.

  • "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them.
    That is our bottom line."
    President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998-Truth!
    This was a quote from President Clinton during a presentation at the Pentagon defending a decision to conduct military strikes against Iraq.

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear.
    We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons More..

  • "- outing a CIA agent

    - spying without a warrant

    - lying to send americans to war"

    1) CIA does not have job security, you screw up, it's on you and that's too bad.

    2) The president has the right to suspend habius corpus if it is for the safety of the country. The Presidents first job is to protect the country under any means possible. As stated before, if he is guilty, then so is Nancy Pelosi and our whole congress "which is all Democraps right now" for not drawing up the More..

  • You know what's funny? It's the speaker of the houses job to draw impeachment orders on the president, and that speaker would happen to be Nancy Pelosi, so if Bush violated constitutional law and she didn't draw up the orders, that would make her just as guilty.
    My question is this, if he did violate the constitution, why has she not drawn up the paperwork? I'll tell you why, because he has not violated the constitution, and these left wing nut jobs continue to be ignorant and prove it daily.

  • Arrest President Bush and Vice President Cheney???

    This is such a vain attempt at drawing attention. It is a childish and petty statement by people that have nothing better to do.

    If the Democrats had a single finger hold on a charge or a whiff of tangible evidence, they would have been all over it.

    I read the empty rhetoric of the liberal whiners and see that they are desparate for reprisal for the Clinton impeachment and the Gore defeat...

    It has been said that "A liberal is More..
