Protests Intrude on Bush's Trip to Maine

ABC News: Protests Intrude on Bush's Trip to Maine

Keep the pressure on. The theme of these protests need to change. We ALL need to ask him (and his cohorts) to resign.
"KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine Aug 26, 2006 (AP)- President Bush came to his parent's century-old summer home on the Maine coast for a little relaxation, a distant cousin's wedding and some family time. He got all that, along with a boisterous reminder nearly on his bucolic doorstep of the unpopularity of his Iraq policies.

What local police estimated were about 700 anti-war demonstrators marched Saturday to within half a mile of the Bush compound before being turned back at a security checkpoint. Called Walker's Point after the family of former President Bush's mother, the stone-and-shingle retreat covering a craggy promontory is owned by the current president's parents.

The protesters sang, chanted, beat drums, waved signs and even played fiddles to call on Bush to bring troops home. "
