House Republicans opt to "stay the course", keep Boehner and Blunt.

House Republicans, still reeling from their defeat at the hands of Democrats, have opted to "stay the course" in their pick of their leadership team for the next Congress. They have elected Rep. John Boehner of Ohio as their Minority Leader to replace Dennis Hastert, who declined to run for the position, and Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri as Minority Whip, No. 2 position in House Republican heirachy. In effect, the two elected leaders moved one spot higher in their new posts. The House Republicans effectively rejected calls for new blood, new faces and new direction for the party by choosing as they have. The future will determine if their decision is a wise one or one to haunt them.
