Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan from Ohio, a state that where Hillary Clinton was surprisingly crushed by Donald Trump after Democrats took the state in 2008 and 2012, said that the Democrat Party is no longer a national party, that it sells well on the coasts, but has basically lost the rest of the country.
Tim Ryan, who recently announced a challenge to longtime Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi , a California communist, told MSNBC’s Katy Tur on Monday that he’s “pulling the fire alarm here because the house is on fire.”
Ryan argued that House Democrats have lost “68 seats since 2010,” and that they have the “smallest number of Democratic office holders in the state and federal level since just after the Civil War,” so that its time for a change in leadership.
“The question really is to my fellow colleagues, ‘How many seats do we have to lose before we make a change, 80 seats, 90 seats, a hundred seats?’ I mean, we’re at the point now where not even a national party at this point. We have some support on the coasts but we’ve lost the support of Middle America. We are not a national party and we better make some big changes. So I’m pulling the fire alarm here because the house is on fire.”
On Sunday, fellow Marxist Barack Obama, who has taken a wrecking ball to the Democrat Party, all but endorsed Nancy Pelosi to continue in her House leadership roll. Obama said that while he’s reluctant to “meddle” in party politics, he sang Pelosi’s praises.
“She combines strong progressive [communist] values with just extraordinary political skill, and she does stuff that’s tough, not just stuff that’s easy,” Obama said when asked whether the San Francisco leftist should be reelected to her position.
In a follow-up interview on Tuesday with MSNBC Clintonista Andrea Mitchell, Mitchell praised Pelosi’s ability to raise oodles of money from the big donors. Ryan replied that if this was an issue about money, Hillary Clinton would be president and the Democrat Party would hold majorities in both the House and the Senate. Instead, they have none of the above.
