Cuomo: ‘I was not saying anyone should leave the state’
The Daily Caller ^ | February 12, 2014 | Caroline May

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 that’s 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, that’s 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, I’m going to leave and I’m 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 – there’s 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. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.”(continued)

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.

Now is it the ComDem’s turn for some of that?

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.

“I was not saying anyone should leave the state, right? Wrong, sir. And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. I heard them, and I know EXACTLY what you were saying. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Stop blowing smoke up our butts, Andy. Don't even pretend you want a "dialogue"... you just want conservatives to drop dead! Be man enough to admit it, at least.

Oh, gee, silly me... thinking a Democrat male could be "man enough" for anything!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
