Two Armed Men Wearing George Bush Masks Rob Bank

Colorado Springs police say the call came in around 11:23 a.m. from the bank, located at 1095 West Garden of the Gods Road. The caller said two armed men wearing masks of the former president demanded money and got away with an unknown amount of cash.

The suspects' race and age are unknown but they reportedly fled in a blue and silver Dodge Durango.

No one was injured in the robbery.

    Banks loan YOUR money at a rate of 26-30% and offer you a rate of .001 percent. Who really are the thieves here?

    How is this out of the ordinary? People have been robbing banks dressed up in dead presidents masks for a long time.

    Idea: As bad as it is getting, maybe banks should make you swipe your ATM card to get in their doors. Keep them locked up otherwise.

    I don't think those were masks. Senior and Junior are back at it again. Stealing our money just like they did while they were in office.

    Would it be a "funny robbery" if someone actually DID get shot, or hurt there? I didn't think so. Also, ANB DID actually have security guards, but they had to be let go because of the crappy economy.

    Maybe it was Doug Bruce trying to get money to pay his tax bill

    Would have been more fitting if they wore Obama masks considering he has taken more money from us than any other president (and in record timing). Just like Obama and his supporters, it is far easier to steal than work for it. Like all thugs, they'll get caught.

        You know what amazes me the most about you liberal touchy-feely types? You're the first to call names and resort to child like behavior when you don't agree with someone. At least when both Jr. and Sr. were in office, we got tax breaks and they didn't try forcing us to buy something most didn't want. What has Obama given us other than taking money and giving it to other countries and bail outs? Let's not forget he mysteriously disappears when a crisis is happening. If you're going to debate, make sure it's off of facts rather than emotions, but hey, that's the "give me, give me" I mean liberal way. By the way, I have a few trees that could use your hugs.

    Every bank I use has a security guard. They don't seem to be much of a deterrent...
