    Vermont, you have my full support in lawfully retaliating against the White House by passing a 603 proclamation calling for Bush's impeachment.

    What is truly disgusting about the cess pool inside the White House is their arrogant contempt of the law. Whether the AP does or does not reinstate the report has little bearing on the issue.

    It is clear the White House is silencing dissent and needed public discourse on the arrogant abuse of power and violations of the Constitution.

    Bush needs to be impeached over his war crimes, and reckless handling of the American Constitution.

    He openly defies the laws, and his signing statements have no legal foundation.

    Vermont, it may take some time, but know a few weeks ago you were reminded of a tool the states have. House Rule 603 gives you the power to issue a proclamation on impeachment: [ Details of what is ready to go for Vermont and the Nation: A Vermont proclamation calling for impeachment, under House Rule 603.]

    Whether you do or do not is not the issue; the issue is whether the White House should be surprised when you do what is well needed.

    I trust the citizens of Vermont will know that regardless what you choose in re impeachment, you remain in the thoughts and prayers of Americans. There is no excuse for this arrogance.

    The White House well deserves a formal response by way of a Vermont State proclamation calling for the US House to Impeach the President. The White House has wished for this.
