Ryan foresees only small Democratic losses in the House



Published: Tue, April 13, 2010 @ 4:42 p.m.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-17th, says his political party will lose seats in the U.S. House and Senate in the November general election, but not enough for Republicans to control either legislative body.

“In reality we probably have a few seats [in the House] we shouldn’t have anyway,” Ryan of Niles said during a meeting today with The Vindicator editorial board.

“We got them from the backlash of [the presidency of] George Bush, and the Barack [Obama presidential] election,” he added. “I don’t see us losing a lot of seats. We won’t lose the House.”

Democrats have a 253-177 majority over Republicans in the U.S. House with 5 vacancies.

Tim is apparently not that bright. I get the feeling he's going to be in for a big surprise.

Maybe we can get lucky and one of the seats that the Dems loose will be Ryan's. This guy's a clown, dodges any forum where he might actually get asked some tough questions, and seems to be Nancy Pelosi's step and fetch it boy. Can't wait to AGAIN vote against him. WIth the condition of the country, and Marxist Obama's policies, I'd vote for roadkill before I voted for virtually ANY current officer holder, Democrat or Republican.

Not many republicans have held office in the demacratic stronghold mahoning valley.. May be a reason we have been in such sad shape since 1979. We don't get nothing but smoke blown up our arses because the politicians already know our area is a lock..

Far left liberal Nate Silvers, who runs FiveThirtyEight.com and accurately predicted the 2008 Election with his computer formula says the Democrats are very likely to lose the House and may lose close to 50-60 seats!

Timmy Ryan is wrong!

Nancy Pelosi will remain Speaker of the House because the Democrats will remain in control of the House of Representatives. Guaranteed.

Cambridge, you will be wrong.
I bet the GOP picks up around 50-55 seats and comes awful close to taking back the Senate.

America hates ObamaCare and it will lead bad losses for the Dems in 2010.

What a sad bunch of rethug losers that post on the Vindy.

The real reason that no rethug has been elected in the valley for so long is because you clowns cant tell you're you-know-what from a hole in the ground.

USA1 - You've just made my point! Thank you!

The Democrats will remain in control of congress by a large margin. Guaranteed. The GOP (Gone Old Party) have been owned since 2006 and that's not going to change anytime soon.

I have to give teabaggers like the USEless1 credit. When others realize that when they vote republican they vote the same way he does it helps them make up their minds on who to vote for.

USEless1.....Thanks for bringing up Sept.12 again. I have provided at least a half dozen reports by reliable news organizations that say less than 100,000. You have provided zero reports that report more than 100,000 because those reports don't exist.

You lie, everyone knows you lie and everyone laughs at you and your stupid posts. Your just to stupid to know it.

USEless1....I have provided link after link from reliable news organizations that report less than 100,000. Why don't you provide just one link from one reliable news agency that reported more than 100,000. That should be easy to do since you claim 2.1 million, that is, unless you lied.

I dare you. Post a link that backs up what you say. Can't find one? Guess why? They don't exist because you lie and everyone knows it and that's why everyone makes fun of you.
