GOP Measures the House Drapes

And so it begins...

Politico reports that the House Republicans' campaign machine is offering access to "Speaker John Boehner"--for the right price, of course.
Months before any midterm votes are cast, John Boehner of Ohio is putting his own face on the GOP’s drive to take back the House by quietly launching a “Boehner for Speaker” committee that aims to boost the party’s lagging fundraising, in part by introducing him as a “regular guy” from Ohio.

But while the effort plays up Boehner’s modest roots, the going rate to participate is pricey: According to materials distributed by Boehner’s camp and obtained by POLITICO, lobbyists and other major donors across the country who give the maximum or help raise $100,000 will get meetings with Boehner, calls from senior aides with updates on the campaign and “VIP access to all events, including roundtables, briefings, breakout discussions and interactive panel discussions.”
Politico has dubbed this the "cash-for-speaker" campaign. 

Personally, I think I'd rather see this guy as Speaker.  More importantly, I'd really prefer if the GOP weren't so presumptuous.  Let's face it--the GOP is experiencing a resurgence NOT really because of anything they've done, but because the country is sick and tired of the Democrats' power grabs. 

Here's hoping that a Republican majority in the 112th Congress will be much more proactive in pursuing a conservative agenda.
