Blunt Out, Time to Dump Boehner
by

A good indication of whether Republicans have learned anything from the shellacking they suffered at the polls for the second straight election is whether they decide to shake up their Congressional leadership. After the 2006 thumpin’, I wrote that they should replace John Bohner as minority leader. At the time, one could defend him by saying that he didn’t rule long enough to get blamed for the magnitude of the defeat. But now, more than two years has passed of Boehner leading with a minority mindset, and Republicans lost at least another 18 seats. There’s no excuse for keeping him as leader, though unfortunately, it looks like that’s exactly what they’re poised to do. In more positive news, Roy Blut has stepped aside as minority whip, and is likely to be replaced by Eric Cantor.
