This Is What Happens When You Copy Rove’s Math Homework

John Boehner has completely lost touch with reality:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) predicted Thursday that Republicans will pick up seats in the 2008 election despite a slew of GOP retirements and the Democrats’ significant fundraising advantage. “We don’t need as much money as [Democrats] have,” he said. “We need enough to tell our story.” He added, “I think we are going to gain seats this year. Period.”

(…)

Boehner said Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) presidential candidacy would be an asset for House Republicans.

Boehner brushed aside suggestions that the parade of GOP retirees was a sign of impending doom in November. Twenty-nine House Republicans are not seeking reelection.

“Most of those retirees are in safe seats,” he said, noting that vulnerable open seats would have been tough to hold with or without an incumbent running.

“There are some retirements that were probably good…good for the member and good for the seat,” he said.

Alrighty then.  If anything hurts Democrats this year, it will be that they didn’t oppose the Republican agenda enough.  But I guess Boehner’s not going to mention that.
