NY Gov Who Told Conservatives They Weren't 'Welcome' Says Cruz Should Apologize for
Townhall.com ^ | January 15, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien

Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.

The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.  

At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage,  and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments.

"I'm always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about," Cuomo said on NY1. "And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New York. Not that I believe they need it or they want it. But if he had any class, he would apologize."

Cruz should not have generalized New Yorkers so dismissively and Donald Trump had a surprisingly strong response, defending New Yorkers' incredible fortitude in the wake of the September 11 terror attacks. 

Yet, in 2014, Cuomo's brush was just a bit broader:

"The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that's not who New Yorkers are." 

Maybe Cruz will apologize when Cuomo does.

Just show him a picture of a 10shot magazine. He’ll soil himself and demand armed protection.

Because it’s a N.Y. Value thing.

Mr. Cruz needs to make it clear to the Nazi Cuomo that if he tries to confiscate firearms from New Yorkers, as president he will call out the 101st Airborne to stop him in order to defend the constitutional rights of citizens.

Too funny. Cuomo pretending to know what class is.

These New York Democrats are soiling themselves over Cruz’s comments that are absolutely true and championed by the politicians New Yorkers vote for. Cruz’s “apology” today covered the subject succinctly.

Did Little Andy Cuomo clear his remarks with his Consigliari before he spoke them?
