Vermont Candidate for DA says she will prosecute Bush if elected

Denette, a candidate running for District Attnory in Vermont is telling everyone who will listen that if she is elected she will prosecute Bush for murder. She says Bush should be held accountable for the US Soldiers and Iraq citizens that have died in the war with Iraq. If you want to read the full story go to yahoo news. It seems she is not the only DA that thinks Bush should be in jail. What do you think? Is this just poliitical BS to try to get elected. After all everyone hates Bush and the war so it would be an easy way to get votes. Or if elected so you actually think they would try to do it? DO you think if they did try that they would get away with it?

I think Bush should certainly be held to account for his illegal and totally unecesssary war in Iraq which has cost us a trillion dollars. And now we are going to pay another trillion dollars to bail out the banks - bravo to the most incompetent administration in history. Bush had an agenda to attack Iraq and cynically used the fear generated by 9/11 to attack Iraq even though there was never any link to the 9/11 terrorists. No weapons of mass destruction. No threat. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed. Yes Bush should be damn well prosecuted, it is a disgrace that he wasn't impeached. Not that I have much hope though, he'll probably get away with it and retire on his fat government pension having robbed the country blind.

making the facts fit around the policy in relation to the Iraq war, using weapons of mass destruction as an 'administrative' reason to launch his war when his real reason was regime change from the very start. Pretending therefore that Iraq was such a grave imminent danger that the weapons inspectors could't finish their work. All that is called in my book 'high crimes and misdemeanours' and he should have been impeached, pure and simple

Yet nothing you have wrote is a crime. You may disagree with his politics but politics and crimes are two different things.

Actually, a whole bunch of lawyers have been holding gatherings and stuff to discuss how one would go about prosecuting Bush. I forget what state, but it's a small thing, but it could conceivably grow. So no, I don't think it's a gimmick. I'd hope she'd go through with it, if elected -- heck, I hope she works for it, even if she's not.

yeh, vermont is kinda new england's answer to california. sorry bout them. there's a lot of pretty extreme keft wing groups there. One wants to cecede entirely, take main and new hampshire with it along with the atlanitc provinces in canada to form a new nation, "new Acadia". This is the same state that brought us bernie sanders and howard dean.

Total political bunkum, there is no way a local District Attorney can prosecute Bush for murder, but it sounds good up there. The candidate will probably win just for this statement, yet she cannot back it up. If I was her opponent I would use this against her and destroy her. Let us remember she is running for a local District Attorney which can only prosecute crime committed in her district, which is probably her county. Unless George W. Bush has committed a crime in her district of Vermont then she has no ability to prosecute Bush for anything. What ever happen to a peaceful transition of power that has happen to ever other President. I have never heard or read of any other President that has been threaten with prosecution after his Presidency was over.
