Cuomo throws tea party gauntlet
Politico ^ | Sept. 27, 2010 | Ben Smith

Posted on 09/27/2010 11:21:09 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Andrew Cuomo, betting that he's still running in a very blue state, offers a bit of a challenge to the Republican base:

"There are no places in New York today for Tea Party politics," he said today, per NY1's Josh Robin.

So what is he saying? That loving liberty is illegal in New York? That demanding lower taxes is a crime?

By golly, he’s right about that! Or, at least, there haven’t been any Tea Party politics in NY....ever.

On the other hand, Mr. Cuomo is a punk, and a bacala.

Did he take off his shoe and pound it on the table? Did he shout “We will bury you!” ?

Thank you Mr. HUD, you’ve just uttered your famous last words.

Really? Cuomo is not impressing me as being very astute. He may have set himself up for the biggest upset of election night 2010.

Help me out here. Wasn’t there another Cuomo who was governor of NY in 1994? Didn’t he wind up doing a potato chip commercial with Ann Richards after she lost to a certain Shrub?

I guess that, according to Cuomo, the Constitution is null and void in NY state.

I think what he’s saying is that teaparty conservatism can’t win in New York.

Let’s just give the liberals their own country and the conservatives their own country and see who does better.

It was an extremely arrogant statement from a narcissist:

Define narcissictic

. self-loving (characteristic of those having an inflated idea of their own importance)

Define narcissism

. narcissism (an exceptional interest in and admiration for yourself) "self-love that shut out everyone else"

Democrats certainly aren’t in tune with their intellectual godfather, Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Jefferson -
“Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty.”
“I own that I am no friend of energetic government, it is always oppressive.”
“That government is best that governs least.”
“If there should be any among us who would wish to abolish or alter this constitution, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion is tolerated where reason is left to combat it.” I’m not exactly sure about the exact wording of that last quote but am sure it is from Jefferson.
Anyway, sounds as if Mr. Jefferson would be right at home at a Teaparty rally.

“There are no places in New York today for Tea Party politics,”

Sounds a lot like a tyrant telling the people what they can and can’t do. The Democrat mentality.

This has the making of a great political ad.

“Cuomo says that that NY has no use for the Tea Partiers. After decades of reckless spending, unfunded pensions and large government debt, who can blame him.

However, it is time to take government back. If you stand for responsible government and oppose continuing down the dead end road of government as usual, tell Cuomo he is wrong by voting against him in November.”

The problem with this ad is that in NY, he may be right. But least when things fall apart, everyone will know who is responsible!

Please contact me if you’re interested in being added on or taken off the Carl Paladino for Governor ping list. This looks to be a fairly high volume ping list for a while, probably until the election.

Fine.

Bring it on, mr. nocojones.

Barron himself was not on hand, Robin tells me. Barron petitioned his way into the November gubernatorial election on what he’s calling the Freedom Party line to protest the lack of any candidates of color on the statewide Democratic ticket.

Good. That'll split the dem vote nicely.

If Prince Andrew had any guts, he'd be arranging a debate with Paladino rather than taking on the Tea Party Movement.

That’s a really ‘extreme’ statement -— what happened to liberal tolerance and love of diversity???

Imagine the uproar if a prominent R. candidate in NY said “there are no places for X politics in New York state” referring to any of a long list of Democrat interest groups?

Cuomo’s message to New York: Scum-suckers of the left unite, you have nothing to lose but your minds and souls!!

Who knows, might take more than one election, but there could be victory in New York.
Like California, they are drowning in government employees, unions and people who get benefits from the government.
The whole thing is on borrowed time, and when reality bites down hard, firing of many government employees and the cut back of many benefits will be forced to take place.
