A look at some other members of Congress who have fielded questions on impeaching Obama

U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, R-York County, downplayed the idea of impeaching President Barack Obama during a York 912 Patriots meeting on Thursday, saying opponents of the president’s agenda have to be tactical and strategic.

The New York Times recently wrote about other members of Congress have said about the issue.

WASHINGTON — Representative Kerry Bentivolio, a freshman Republican from Michigan, has a legislative dream. It is not to balance the federal budget, or find a way to help his ailing state or even take away money from the federal health care program, a goal that has so animated many other Republicans this summer.

Rather, Mr. Bentivolio told constituents, it is to put in motion the impeachment of President Obama. “If I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true,” he said this month.

Mr. Bentivolio may be lacking in his understanding of the technical details of the impeachment process — he has retained experts and historians to help him with that, he said — but he is hardly the only one with this desire.
