This quote from House Speaker Jon Boehner made ALL the Political media stops….
The OTHER GOPer’s tried to play it off as a fundraiser ploy….
I’m NOT so sure that’s completely true….
House GOP Speaker John Boehner has MORE grey hairs from fighting his OWN House people…
And THIS DOG thinks he’s worried (Like Romney) about the troops staying too far to the right….
And the Fundraising angle below Money….
“I would say that there is a two-in-three chance that we win control of the House again but there’s a 1-in-3 chance that we could lose, and I’m being myself, frank. We’ve got a big challenge and we’ve got work to do,” he said.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) struck a more optimistic tone last week when he predicted the GOP will pick up seats in November.
“I’m very bullish on the House,” Cantor said. “I am very confident that we will strengthen our majority.”
Boehner is worried that Republican donors will take the House for granted, and pour their money into the battle for the White House and the Senate.
A GOP aide familiar with Boehner’s decision to make the comment said the Speaker doesn’t want donors to become complacent, or less generous, in the effort to retain the new majority.
Former National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Communications Director Ken Spain echoed that point on Twitter by offering a “translation” of Boehner’s remarks: “We feel very good but don’t want donors to stop giving.”
