Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Examiner reports, while speaking with Susan Arbetter on "The Capitol Pressroom" radio show Friday morning, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made a very controversial remark.
He basically said "extreme" conservative Republicans are not welcome in his state. Cuomo said, "You have a schism within the Republican Party, they're searching to define their soul."
Isn't that nice for him to care about the Republican party?
Cuomo went on to say that "schism" can be seen in his home state. In a nutshell, he said moderate Republicans are welcomed in his state, but conservatives were not.
Let me say this again, the governor of a state said moderate Republicans who may agree with him are ok, but conservatives were not welcomed in New York. If I were a conservative in the state I would be furious with someone telling me I'm not welcomed in my own home state.
Conservative radio host Sean Hannity has said that's it, he's done, he's moving out. I'll bet the guv sure likes all that tax money he gets from conservatives because we all know he's not giving that back.
Of course, once the chips hit the fan, he says he was misquoted.
But, this is what he said:
"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 is who they are and if they are extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York.''
Can you imagine if Rick Perry said no liberals were welcomed in Texas? Can you imagine the 'storm of you know what' that would happen? Our state is open to everyone. Yep, we have difference in opinions, but, black, white, brown, gay, straight, liberals and conservatives, all have a place at the ballot box.
I guess Governor Cuomo is that arrogant and thinks, like some have said, the state of New York is his play toy.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
