Cuomo: No Place In New York For Tea Party

NEW YORK (1010 WINS/WCBS 880) — Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo had strong words about his opponent Carl Paladino on Monday.

Cuomo addressed reporters after a meeting with black leaders – including former city comptroller William Thompson and Rep. Charlie Rangel.

“I believe his position that we should limit a woman’s right to chose even in the case of rape and incest, I think that’s an extreme position,” Cuomo said, “I think the position about taking families who happen to be on welfare and bringing them to work camps is an extreme position.”

Rangel described Paladino’s rise as “frightening” and said New York was fortunate to have Cuomo.

Thompson went as far as accusing Paladino of being a racist.

“We’re not going to tolerate it, we’re going to stand up and say it and quote it for what it is,” Thompson said.

Cuomo said he wants voters to know that this election is about making a choice.

“There is no place in New York for Tea Party politics,” Cuomo said adding that the party espoused “extremist views.”

    “It’s a true saying, the grass is not greener on the other side.”

    We have enough Child Molesters hiding out in New York!

    New York State does not need anymore child molesters moving here because they share Carl Paladino’s perverted views.

    Who is the worst of the two candidate’s? CARL PALADINO is, I never thought politics could get any worse, but this man is the most disgusting pig I have ever came across in politics, he’s a pervert giving out lollipops to kids and telling their Mom’s to vote for him.

    Without a doubt Carl Paladino is the worst out of the two candidates, he is absolutely not fit for office his mind is in the sewer it’s a cesspool full of pornographic videos.

    Carl Paladino is trailer trash in 2009 he sent out pornographic videos using emails to entertain his co-workers and friends. When he got married to his wife that he cheats on, her father died shortly after they married and Carl Paladino inherited her father’s real estate development business, that’s how he became 150 million dollars richer. That’s whose hands you’re putting New York State into, the man is unstable and disturbed, and once you read the details about him, you will agree.

    I feel like a fool after all these months I was supporting him on Westchester Online News, the internet and all the blogs, I feel terrible that I helped this man win the primary, but, he must not win the election, I hope it’s not too late too reach all the New Yorkers that voted for him in the primary to inform them that this man is not fit for the Governors Office. He is also a racist.

    It also is the responsibility for all the Online Press, TV News, Media, Radio, Blogs and Newspapers to inform the public about his pornographic perverted mind.

    We removed our endorsement from Carl Paladino For Governor of New York!

    saying there is no place for the tea party is a fear reaction to try to scare people into believing his social agenda is good, socialism has failed every time it was applied

    “I believe his position that we should limit a woman’s right to chose even in the case of rape and incest, I think that’s an extreme position,” Cuomo said…”

    Care to ask the Muslims in New York City what their position on abortion is…
    It is forbidden, so does Cuomo think they are extremists also?

  • Claire Solt PhD

    Does he think that abortion is the defining issue during a recession? Hardly, but corruption would be a close second. Stand right next to Charlie and lob your stones.

    I think Cuomo has confused two elements of the American right: social conservatives and the TEA Party movement. While many individuals are both, organizations that use the TEA Party monicker have, by and large, limited their official positions to positions on taxation, government spending and government regulation of business and everyday life, in keeping with the acronym for Taxed Enough Already, and have no position on abortion-on-demand, with the possible exception of not wanting tax money to fund it.

    Of course, conflating all of their opponents is an old and very effective leftist trick: the National Socialists were “rightists” even though they really were socialists because they opposed the Commintern, even as classical liberals (called “conservatives” here in the States since conserving the American Founding is conserving classical liberalism), monarchists, Christian Democrats, Tories and a host of others, all of whom abhorred Naziism also were “rightists” for opposing the Commintern. And, it’s a very effective tactic: even two generations removed, most Jews won’t vote for a Republican candidate who strongly supports Israel and whose views they agree with on virtually every issue for fear the “rightist” might really be a Nazi, preferring instead the Democrat, even if he openly backs “Palestinian-rights” and holds views contrary to their own on most issues.

    Of course, taking Cuomo at his word, he is asserting that a movement supporting less government and fidelity to the American Founding “has no place in New York politics”. What a sad comment on the state of New York politics that is!

    The tea party has no answers to our problems, the tea party IS our problem. The tea party is just a sad group of old, white, racist bigots who are all going to die naturally very soon so they have NOTHING to say about our future. They can’t stand the fact that we have a black president and when they howl “TAKE BACK AMERICA!!!” they mean to take it back from the minorities. They represent only the top 3% richest Americans so they are our cultural enemies. Barrack, don’t dignify those low lifes by asking them for suggestions. Mark Montgomery

      You are a very confused individual. I feel sorry for you. Please get help.

    I love watching CBS do the typical libturd thing: Censor everyone who doesn’t sound right. Freedom of Speech only applies if you follow their “norm”.

    And the following is definitely not their “norm”. Expect their minion, “nathan”, to censor this when he gets in to work tomorrow.

    Why does the libturd media still refuse to ask Cuomo what he was thinking of when he was in charge of HUD? You know, when HUD mandated that FNMA and FHLMC come up with some creative ways for people who can’t afford it to by a house. And once FNMA and FHLMC set up the ponzi scheme, banks were forced to “accommodate” it and sell it to the market. I believe this mortgage scheme thingie is what this current economic mess is all about? Or have you libturds conveniently forgotten that little event too? You really thought banks wanted to lend to deadbeats if they weren’t forced to do so?
