New House Majority Leader

Axis of Right congratulates Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) for winning the Majority Leader post 122-109, after Shadegg dropped out following the first ballot in which it was Blunt 110, Boehner 79, Shadegg 40.

Congratulations to Re. Boehner. Even though he was not endorsed by the Axis of Right, I think he will be a better majority leader than Blunt, just because he has not been in the leadership over the past several years. If he can bring back the spirit of ’94, all power to him.

Boehner was a second favorite for me. I liked Shadegg, but Blunt had to go. Something fresh for the election year… and to make the Dems cringe a little!

Nothing but second best for us. Oh well, at least Shadegg drew attention to the need to return to our core principles. One of the chief culprits in the Republican spending spree and architects of political malfeasance has been defeated.

Boehner has been in the leadership before. He was a key player in 1994. He could be decent. If he follows the Shadegg playbook he’ll remain MAJORITY leader for a long time,

I wonder if McCain’s endorsement of Shadegg had anything to do with the result?
