Well, that’s bold.

US House Republicans are exhibiting a bit of optimism in launching a new site promoting Ohio Representative and Minority Leader John Boehner for Speaker of the House.

How optimistic? Well, when you’re down 78 seats, that’s a helluva hill to climb, especially when you consider the 1994 Republican Revolution gained 54 seats.

Not that this is a bad idea. The NRCC is capitalizing on anti-Obama/anti-Pelosi rage among its donor base and giving them an a specific goal in a Speaker Boehner.

Finally, it’s a positive sign that Boehner is keeping the confidence of the House GOP. While there have been minor slips, like the alternative budget roll-out, overall he has kept the caucus in check.

Now let’s make 1994 look like child’s play.
