    “Berkeley, Calif. wants vote on Bush impeachment”

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Berkeley plans to give voters a say on a measure calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, the mayor of this famously liberal California city said on Wednesday.

    A number of local governments across the United States have passed resolutions urging impeachment. But the Berkeley city council wants to be the first to put the issue directly to voters, Mayor Tom Bates said in an interview.

    "This is basically giving the people a chance to talk, to join the debate," Bates said. "The issues go way beyond impeaching the president. They go to safeguarding the Constitution."

    Cheered on by Iraq war protester Cindy Sheehan, who has moved to Berkeley, the council voted unanimously on Tuesday to have the city attorney review the measure that would appear on the November ballot.

    The Berkeley Peace and Justice Commission, which advises the city on civil rights issues, recommended the measure to the council.

    The panel accuses the Republican White House of intentionally misleading Congress to justify an unnecessary war in Iraq, pursuing unlawful surveillance programs and permitting torture of detainees suspected of links to terrorism.

    Bush and Cheney "have acted in a manner contrary to their trust as President and Vice President of the United States and subversive of Constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the People of the United States of America," the commission said in a statement.

    Berkeley has seen its politics march steadily leftward since the 1960s, when the Free Speech Movement and Vietnam War protests at the University of California, Berkeley, drew political activists to the city.

    Bush received 4,010 votes in Berkeley in the 2004 presidential election, compared with 54,409 votes for Democratic challenger John Kerry….

  2. Do you really think that Berkley speaks for the rest of the country?

    News flash....ain't happening.
  3. I highly doubt the Bush and Cheney will be impeached, not that they are unworthy, but it would be very detriminal to the US. Berkley is the extreme of liberalism, the don't speak for the majority. Don't put much weight into this story. That's like saying Pat Robertson speaks for the majority. Don't think so.

    SouthAmerica: This is only the first shot in a long impeachment process.

    Yes, a lot of people in this country would like to see the Bush/Cheney team gone from Washington.

    The sooner these clowns leave town - the best it will be for the US and the rest of the world.

  5. The amazing part is that he became president in the first place. Quite ridiculous.
  6. In many ways yes, but it would show the world that the actions of these men do not represent American values. At some point there has to be some effort to mending a broken image.

    I agree that it will never happen, not a chance.
  7. Yeah not once but twice.:(
  8. Exodus


    He became President because Daddy has lots and lots of buddies in the OIL patch and this is EXACTLY why OIL is the price it is right now!

    Everything is all OKY DOKY in the BUSH camp and all thier oil buddies are happy little campers and it ONLY cost a few tens of thousands of lives!!!!

    The day he is impeached is the day that America will be blessed again.
  9. I think the most amazing thing is that no moderator has set up a macro to auto forward all of South America's posts to the Chit Chat section.
  10. Bush won the year 2000 election because of a low voter turnout. Only nine people voted.
