"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Hundreds Protest in Pennsylvania

Looks like the time has come to get out the pitchforks and torches. Well, not quite yet, but the inertia has begun. The pendulum has certainly changed its course. Centre Daily Times reports hundreds of protesters gathered in University Park, Pennsylvania to greet the President with their shouts of contempt...

The silent protest became a chant at about 1:20 p.m., led by State College resident Tony Coray. As a few protesters beat drums, Corey began yelling "By the power, by the power, by the power of the people" and "Impeach."

Other protesters picked up the chant, although Centre County's Democratic Chairman Bob Shepherd, whose group was the umbrella organization for the protest, said his group didn't condone leaving the silent format. The same chant was repeated just before 2 pooh, again led by Corey shouting through a ballroom.

As Bush supporters passed by on their way to a hospitality tent nearby, protesters aimed shouts at them. "Your support kills people," one yelled. Another chimed in, "Stop the killing!" Others began chanting "Impeach."

"They call this the free speech zone," said Peter Morris, a retired Penn State professor who was holding a sign that read: "He Lies. They Die."

"It used to be that the whole country was a free speech zone."
