    House Dems look ahead to tough cycle

    House Dems look ahead to tough cycle
    By ALEX ISENSTADT | 12/29/08 7:23 AM EST

    House Democrats are warning the party faithful of a difficult election cycle ahead, with as many as 70 party-held seats in danger.

    "We have a daunting challenge ahead in the 2010 midterm elections," Democratic House campaign chief Chris Van Hollen says in a year-end Web video thanking supporters. "Many of our new members are from conservative areas with long histories of Republican representation. We are looking at potentially 70 — 70 — threatened Democrats who will need our support."

    While House race watchers are predicting a difficult cycle for Democrats, Van Hollen's 70 figure may be on the high end.

    The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan handicapping guide, places 48 Democrats in prospectively competitive races. And Democrats are expected to have targets of their own in 2010, with Cook placing 34 Republicans on its watch list.

    Van Hollen, who recently signed on for a second cycle as House campaign chief, has been meeting privately with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee aides to chart out the committee's offensive and defensive moves for the cycle.

    Over the past two election cycles, House Democrats picked up 51 seats. In the Web video, Van Hollen is quick to note that the party defied electoral history in expanding its majority in the 2008 cycle.

    When the American people discover all these b.s. bailouts and any so called stimulus will provide jobs, mortgage and other loan assistance ONLY for illegal aliens all hell will break loose. On top of that Annie Schwarzenneger is allowing illegal aliens to use fraudulent matricula consular cards to open bank accounts and apply for more loans which they will default on with these same banks already the recipients of some of those idiotic taxpayer bailouts from previous bad loans and other toxic assets. The Democraps will long for the days when they held a 77 seat majority in the House. I am doing what I can to inform all media sources and tell everyone the Democraps real agenda unfortunately is NOT in the best interests of the American people but as always is only for open borders, cheap labor and illegal votes.
    The more things change the more they remain the same as always which is the only constant besides death, taxes and congressional payraises........
