    He never said they "couldn't stay." He was quite clearly saying that those types (the extreme pro-life/anti-gay/etc.) simply aren't going to get elected in New York. And he was right.

    And since when is he the "decider" of who is and who isn't welcome?

    Oy vey.

    As I said, I thought his statement was inelegant at best. But what he meant, in full context, is obvious. You try getting elected in any but the absolute reddest parts of NY State as a Louie Gohmert/Steve King type and see how fast your ass gets sent packing. He wasn't delivering a mandate, he was simply stating simple fact when it comes to the New York State electorate. The Tea Party (rather, the politicians that run under the banner of the TP but are generally right-wing whackadoodles) has been roundly rejected in New York.

    A couple have tried, and they all failed.

    yeah, that all makes sense. however, if the Mississippi governor said that he didn't want people who were pro-gay marriage in his state I have a strange feeling you wouldn't let it slide off your back like Cuomo's comments.

    I dunno, I guess we'll see if it happens.

    I think it's more of STFU or to the back of the bus with you. Typically arrogant liberal as one would have come to expect.

    Let's see how many other negative things we can claim liberals have cornered the market on. Because libertarians are certainly never arrogant.
