WASHINGTON

Rep. John Boehner of Ohio was elected House majority leader Thursday to replace indicted Rep. Tom DeLay.

Boehner defeated fellow Republican Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri, 122- 109, after lagging behind his rival in a first, inconclusive ballot.

Boehner campaigned as a candidate of reform, and said his experience as chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee had demonstrated his ability to pass major legislation.

Blunt remains the GOP whip, third-ranking in the leadership. He been a temporary stand-in for DeLay, who is charged with campaign finance violations in Texas.

And just how did you get that from his voting record? His only "antigun" votes were ones that kept the US from leaving the UN, and for creating a National ID card. Hardly gun-rights litmus tests. On the ACTUAL gun bill votes, he was 100% with gun owners.

Come to think of it they were both Ron Paul ammendments. He wouldn't want to risk party support by supporting a crackpot. Even though the crackpot was right.
