House GOPer: Impeaching Obama Would Be 'Dream Come True'

Michigan congressman said he’s discussed impeaching the president with lawyers.

Sadly, here in Michigan we have more Republican lunatics than you can shake a stick at. Case in point, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio:

"Michigan Republican Rep. Kerry Bentivolio said Monday it would be a “dream come true” to submit a bill to impeach President Obama. Bentivolio also said he had meetings with lawyers asking them to “tell me how I can impeach” the President of the United States. Bentivolio was speaking at the August 2013 Birmingham Bloomfield Republican Club Meeting.

“If I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true,” Bentivolio said."

Bentivolio at least admits that he has one little problem: You have to have evidence of an impeachable offense. But, why do you need that evidence?

'“Until we have evidence, you’re going to become a laughing stock if you’ve submitted the bill to impeach the president because number one you’ve got to convince the press,” he said."

So, needing evidence of an impeachable offense to impeach the president doesn't have anything to do with the fact that you have to have evidence to impeach the president. It's just that if you impeach the president without having evidence, then the press will make a laughingstock out of you.

Guess what, Mr. Bentivolio? You needn't worry about the press. You've made yourself into a laughingstock.
