He has assured his constituents that he has done everything possible to find a reason to impeach President Obama.
“I went back to my office and I’ve had lawyers come in” the Congressman continued. “These are lawyers, Ph.Ds in history, and I said ‘tell me how I can impeach the President of the United States.’”
Give me something, anything, please. Democrats famously took actual impeachable offenses by George Bush "off the table
" for no other apparent reason than wanting to be nice and liked and playing along and not rocking the boat. And this is what they get in return - what a contrast with Republicans for whom enough reason is their intense hatred of a black man in the White House.
However Bentivolio does seem to have the capacity for rational thinking and announced ruefully to his constituents that actual "evidence" is required for impeachment, not just the desire fueled by the white hot hatred that burns with the light of a thousand suns.
“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. “There are some people out there no matter what Obama does he’s still the greatest president they’ve ever had. That’s what you’re fighting.”
Great rationale there - don't try to impeach him with lack of evidence, not because you can't but because you'll be the laughing stock of the country. And "fighting" against people who are aware that there is no basis whatsoever for such action.
The exchange starts at about 27:00. The Congressman has a bunch of loony constituents - one of them actually asked what he was going to do about ChemTrails, and he seems very practiced at talking them down from the ledge, explaining why the premises of their questions are without merit, without telling them they're unhinged loons.
