Skip to comments.Cuomo: ‘I was not saying anyone should leave the state’
Posted on 02/12/2014 8:18:42 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
People misunderstood New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when he said conservatives have no place in the state of New York, the Democratic governor explained Wednesday.
I was not saying anyone should leave the state, right? And anyone who heard the comments knows thats not what I was saying, Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, thats what it is.
Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay have no place in the state of New York.
Conservative talker Sean Hannity even threatened to leave the state over the comments.
Gov. Cuomo, Im going to leave and Im taking all of my money with me every single solitary penny, Hannity said on his radio show in January. And by the way governor, because I work here theres a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. Im sure youll take care of them.(continued)

He will NEVER dig his way out of this. I have the audio and will use it as much as I can this coming election cycle. I cannot wait to kick this guys a$$.
I am very indifferent about New Yorkers (except upstate NY) coming to Texas.
Now, Businesses that want to move away from the insanity in NY, We would love to have you here.
Val/Jar said it: Payback is Hell.
Now is it the ComDem’s turn for some of that?
Cuomo should leave for Cuba, along with the Commie Blasio.
Snicker, its a bit late to back-pedal at this point. He is just learning that he is losing his tax base and won’t have the money to give out freebees to his supporters.
What a despicable weasel. Hard to believe he's actually WORSE than his sh*tbag father.
he has the very same unclean spirit as jarret and that lawless beast in the white house,
you can see it in their eyes, its exactly the same,
Oh, gee, silly me... thinking a Democrat male could be "man enough" for anything!
It’s too bad that Upstate NY can’t send NYC off to become part of N.J.
They both speak Farsi.
Yep, evil unclean spirit.
Cu-homo isn’t the supreme douchbag here. The people who voted him in are.
Yes he is saying this now because everyone IS leaving the USAs first full blown fascist state.
Cuomo speaks Farsi? Is he any better at than he is English?
He looks like a monkey.
The typical liberal CYA.
They say something stupid and then try to claim we’re just not smart enough to understand their brilliance.
The fear is that any New Yorkers who DO come will carry the infection of liberalism with them. Even a little bit of that can spread and turn your state blue in a few years.
I hope Hannity’s not going to be talked into staying. These arrogant buzzards need to be taught a lesson.

Come to the NEW New York,
And build your Company!
We have Tax Free Zones,
So Build and grow tax free!
What I meant to say,
As normal people would agree,
I know what is best to think and say.
In New York I make the rules,
Since arrogance is the key,
Of Liberal life and debt.
When the tax free zones expire,
Just leave your Company Key.
I can’t stand to listen to this lying POS mofo. Ever noticed that he “uptalks” all the time like a Valley Girl? His tampons must be pretty uncomfortable to make him talk like that.
He is responsible for the housing bubble that burst in 2008 and he will NEVER be held accountable for that.
Help me here, somebody. I'm just not sure what he's saying.
Cuomo: I didn’t say what I said?
I think he’s a drunk or on drugs.
When I asked my source in the belly of the beast (Albany) - what the reaction was among the state workers?
The answer came back - most ofthem are not aware of the situation.
We are surrounded by low information voters.
People simply do not have a clue anymore.
Wallace wouldn't be comfortable living in Cuba?
If anybody told me, “You’re not welcome here”, I’d interpret it to mean that he wanted me to leave.
I suppose, however, words mean only what Cuomo wants them to mean, nothing more and nothing less.
With the Red Queens of theauthoritarian progressive movement in charge, I really do feel like Alice in Wonderland.
I hope Hannity carries through his comment since he said he WAS leaving, not threatening to leave. And how liberals say something then claim to have meant the complete opposite is astounding to me. What freaking liars
New Yorkers are welcome in Texas, but only if they want to become Texans ... and not turn Texas into New York.
Like the police chief of Houston once said: Yankees are like hemorrhoids: when they come down and go back up, they aren’t so bad; but when they come down and stay down, they’re a source of constant irritation.
I wonder how the “come to New York to do business” ad campaign is effecting new businesses to NY? I would think it would keep many (in their right mind) from setting up shop in NY even with the touted ten year tax free inducement. What other taxes and fees are not being mentioned in the ad?
What makes you think we want this a-hole of a city over on this side of the Hudson?
Of course he didn’t intend anyone to leave.
Communists don’t allow anyone to leave.
They also don’t allow dissenting thought.
You will be re-educated, comrade.
Remember, they’re not “liberals”, they’re communists. Liberals value divergent views, if only to get their own intolerable views tolerated. Communists, having achieved tolerance of their own intolerable views, literally seek to destroy diverging views - not to tolerate diversity, nor let others leave to live their views elsewhere, but to destroy the very existence of unapproved opinions.
Reduced need of bridges?
Yeah, Cuomo's special alright.
40 more months and I’m there.
Ask Cuomo there about Rush.
He left and the state’s taxman kept trying to drag him back.
** And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. Im sure youll take care of them.**
Unlike Jay Leno who took care of his TV family. Repeatedly, consistently.
Sean, you are a putz....and keep proving it....time and again.
He said what he said. If he objects that much to people drawing reasonable inferences from what he said, maybe he shouldn’t have said it in the first place.
Do you not know how to say Thank You for Birthday Wishes?Disappointed.Fly on.
He’d use concentration camps if he thought he could get away with it. Same for all political democrats. Been saying that for years and my kids are starting to believe me now..
I can’t help but be reminded of the district manager I worked under back in 1980. I was one of 83 tech reps in his district and he actually sent out a memo about errors on paperwork saying that if any one man accounted for one percent or more of all the errors in the district he could be fired. I pointed out that if each one of the 83 only made one error in a month all of them would need to be fired. He then came back and said that we should not take everything so seriously! He threatened to fire people and then when he realized he had been a fool he could not admit it, he tried to push it off on the people he had threatened.
Besides all the other usual leftist reasons, this might be another one that they’re working all kinds of angles to get money away from conservatives and people on the right, to redistribute to their leftist constituents. As long as conservatives have any wealth and are amongst rhe most productive segment of society, they can’t yet totally dismiss us. That bothers them a lot, to understate it.
All the productive and mentally healthy contributing, decent, members of society will leave, then he’ll have to come up with some new extortionist racket, and try to federalise it, to support his remaining parasite constituents.
To clarify” You’re not welcome in New York”
That worries me too. Even the ones, for example, who don’t want their weapons confiscated, may carry the union virus. Or they may oppose high taxes, but be all for abortion or the watermelon agenda (green on the outside, red on the inside).
Nope. Must have posted to wrong thread.
Both Obama and Val/Jar both speak Farsi.
Cuomo speaks ComDem Insanity.
