Bryan Fischer: Impeach Barack Obama for "educational" purposes

See also

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer took a call from someone who demanded that Republicans in the House of Representatives "take a stand" and impeach President Obama, regardless of the fact that he won't be convicted and removed by the Senate.

Fischer, who previously suggested that Democrats might impeach Obama to try to survive their midterm elections, agreed, both that Obama would not be removed by the Senate, but that the House of Representatives should go ahead with the proceedings anyway.

For "educational" purposes.

"There could be a powerful educational benefit from the House filing articles of impeachment," said Fischer, because "it would give the House the opportunity to make their case why this man needs to be removed from office," further stating that there would be "tremendous educational value in that; it may not go anywhere in the Senate ... but it may be time to recognize there's an educational benefit here."

This, oddly enough, is the closest Bryan Fischer has ever come to telling the truth in his entire life. If Congress voted to impeach President Obama, the American people would learn a lot.

Not about Obama. About Congress.

The reasons to impeach Obama summarize as a long list of conspiracy theories mixed in with petty grievances, which the House has been able to get away with this long because they are little known outside of the circle of conspiracy theory peddlers like Bryan Fischer.

Impeachment proceedings, however, would require these "reasons" to be made fully public. Which, just as it did in 1998 when Congress tried to impeach Bill Clinton, is much more likely to backfire.
