U.S. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Milford, made the comment to supporters in Birmingham. The talk was posted on YouTube.
In response to a woman's question about impeaching the president, Bentivolio said he wishes he could submit an impeachment bill. He told her he feels her pain about Obama because he "stood 12 feet away from the guy" and "couldn't stand being there."
Bentivolio said it's his job to respect the office of the presidency and anyone who seeks his impeachment without evidence would "become a laughingstock."
