Gov. Cuomo to conservatives: Leave NY!
The New York Post ^ | January 18, 2014 | Aaron Short

Posted on 01/19/2014 9:45:56 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Gov. Cuomo has a message for conservative Republicans — you don’t belong in New York.

Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself.

“Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show.

“Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

He added that moderate Republicans, such as those in the state Senate, “have a place in their state.”

Cuomo hammered Republican activists whose views he said were out of step with the majority of New Yorkers and said the party has to back moderates to have any hope of winning seats in this fall’s elections.

“You have a schism within the Republican Party,” Cuomo observed. “They’re searching to define their soul. That’s what’s going on . . . It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington.”(continued)

Imagine for a moment that Gov Sarah Palin told liberals to leave Alaska. Can anyone imagine the fury and screaming in the media? OMG!!! Yet not a peep when its the other way around. So damned typical.

Cuomo is a problem and always has been. Just like his old man.

Sure... whatever you say Andrew “Bozo the Clown” Cuomo.

You and your Marxist slime-balls are continually moving the ideological center further left... which makes our founding fathers out to be far right radical extremist. So by embracing our founding fathers principles and ideals also makes us far-right radical extremists.

Let civil war II begin!

As conservatives already have all the incentive they need to move out of places like New York, and as demographic maps show this already happening, I'm sure it won't be long before Cuomo gets his wish, and all the income-producing, community-maintaining, conservative folks are gone, and all that's left behind is what we now see roaming the streets of Detriot.

I'm still here, in NYC no less, but I'm can't wait for the first opportunity to pack up and go somewhere else!

No mo Cuo mo...

What god died and made him mayor...

Oh yeah, his dad.

It sure must be nice not to have to do a days work in your life, and lord it over everyone else as if you had clue one.

He Cuomo, I hear they’re looking for new management in Hell. I’m guessing that’s one place you couldn’t F up any worse than it already is. That would be an improvement.

Go directly there! Don’t pass go, and don’t collect $200 dollars.

The Unsafe Act among other things is backfiring on him big time. He’s basically got upstate NY entirely pissed at him.

So he’s flailing around for a boogeyman.

I think most have already left. Those conservatives left behind are only there because of/for:

1. family commitments
OR
2. a high paying job
OR
3. a medical condition makes them un-mobile or their house is unsellable.

Other than that, I got nothing.

Let HIM, the bumbling fool libtard leave instead. All he’s been doing is contributing to the moral, fiscal, and safety decay of NY. How DARE he dictate who can live in NY? Has his little libtard brain gotten all swollen up on hubris?

I’m trying to remember....some leader in Germany some years ago was saying that some group of people didn’t have a place in Germany and weren’t really Germans....they passed laws against that group and eventually they were deported to some places called “ghettoes” in Poland....I’m trying to remember what happened next??????

As if Conservatives really give a crap! Seems that today the liberal viewpoints continue to be politicized along with media help - what are you going to do? Seems nothing to me but we still wallow in our own demise... We do seem to enjoy complaining among ourselves though... Good luck with that!

If that is so (Hitler comparison) why the hell has that not galvanized the Conservatives to do something about it?

Are there no activist Republicans that can protest such nonsense in New York? Have we become so passive that we just continue to take the arrows without any retaliation?

That is why November is so important..no matter what we hear them say in the media..we DO outnumber them..it just doesn’t seem that way since the Libs control the media and Hollywood..but we do outnumber them and in order to save this country we have to win in November and take back the senate that will be a huge step in the right direction

Ah yes, sure hope that the illegal vote does not become a problem! Yes, common sense should prevail but when dealing with Democrats and their methods, it takes a bit more than votes and hope... Just another attempt at correcting a major problem with the direction that this country is going...

He’s trying to do a Christie: Get some of us out of the state so he wins the governor’s race by a wider margin, smoothing his way to run for prez. If gun-rights people in NY State are energized, they will swarm the polls in November and vote Republican.

That he can insult the constitution-abiding in the process is just a bonus.

Did you miss the 12,000 people who showed up at the statehouse in the pouring rain to protest the Safety Diaper Act?

Tea party is active. Upstate is very conservative. And beautiful! They are not going to leave. They’ve been here for generations.

That is what he is up against. No more causing a meltdown of the global economy from his perch in liberal Washington.

Seeing as our new Pope demoted a Cardinal that called for withholding communion from pro-choice politicians, I think he's safe.

Wonder how many votes Evil-Eye Cuomo won outside the Rotten Apple?

I have a better idea - excise the five rotten burrows from the surrounding countryside and let it float out to sea, taking this moron with it. An idea “floated” by Barry Goldwater back in 1964 and he was dead on back then too.

LOL. The buffoonish thug Cuomo is following the libtard Rx that turned Detroit into a third world craphole.
Plus the halfwit has an anti-fracking position.
The fiscal condition of the Empire State has already been in freefall
and people have been leaving the state in droves.
To those majority voters and fraudsters who choose to stay, you get what you deserve.

THIS and Biden are the Democrat's second line for 2016 after Hillary -- which might help explain the witch hunt for Christie. (I'd predict a McGovern or Dukakis-style blowout if they nominated him -- against any Republican with a pulse.)

You may be surprised....
The Albany Times Union, the Professional Obama Outlet Propaganda Sheet, located in the New York state capital, (POOPS for you in Rio Linda) is yet to report Cuomo’s attack on the states citizens of what ever race and culture.
However the local early morning radio shows are addressing it.
IIRC Andrew’s dad campaign against Ed Koch used the slogan:
“Cuomo not the Homo”..... nice family.
