    Perhaps all those that "....... have no place in New York" will move out of state, thereby burdening those who remain with the taxes that are being paid by those "having no place." Watch the jobs go somewhere else.

    "It's my kind of town," except for everyone that the liberals do not like. Sadly, it's not "my kind of town" for the babies who are murdered before birth.

    I think don't think that the title is quite accurate. Sounds like pretty standard political rah rah stuff:

    “I agree with Governor Cuomo’s remarks. I interpret his remarks to say that an extremist attitude that continues the reality of violence in our communities or an extremist attitude that denies the rights of women does not represent the views of New York State,” he added.

    My guess is the Cuomo bible-beatin' characture of a conservative here doesnt make up a huge part of the NYC/NY tax base, nor are those people, if they even exist, clamoring in big numbers to move to NYC/NY either.

    Agree. NYC tends to be comprised of more Catholics and mainstream Protestants than evangelicals, although there is from what I read a number of years ago a growing number of evangelical protestants, but given the population size of NYC and the metro area, such numbers are dwarfed by the others.

    I wasnt commenting on its ok-ness. It doesnt strike me as something extremely excellent to say, but on the flipside, nothing to lose any sleep over either, because politicians say this sort of thing all the time. I doubt NYers lose much sleep when Republicans talk about the "real America" (i.e. not NYC, even though that it is part of America).

    Really, so what conservative governor has said liberals are not welcome to their state? I'm always hearing how leftists are so inclusive.

    I don't know, I don't go around searching for these sorts of stories to get pissed off or indignant about.

    Well you did say people say this type of stuff all the time as to marginalize what came out of his mouth. This guy does have a certain reputation that quite frankly he worked hard to make.

    They do - Sarah Palin talked about "The Real America" and she was the governor of Alaska at the time. I've heard the we need to be governed by "Real Americans" or "people who share our values," etc, etc. thousands of times in ways both benign and dickish. If you want to get historical, pretty much every Southern governer said: we don't want Northern liberals coming to our state to make trouble from about 1865-1964. Long story short, I don't find any version of "we want to live with/be governed by" people like us to be particularly unusual in American political rhetoric.

    Do tell, what did they mean be real Americans? I'm sure you have the special code meaning translated. Cuomo has a history of derogatory speech. Hear is blast from the past "vote for Cuomo not the Homo". Yeah this guy is a class act.

    Cool. I don't like Cuomo either, but these remarks did nothing to make me think any better or worse of him. I doubt they had any different affect on anyone else.

    I would say there are many people that think less of him, myself included.

    You do know that Sarah Palin never said, "I can see Russia from my house?"

    Palin is still a dope.

    I love his quote about "extremist attitudes that continue the reality of violence in our communities".

    Wow.
