GOP plans to use Cuomo
I do not see anything to support that he was only saying that conservatives could not win an election in NY. I think that is back tracking to try to cover up what he said.
I assumed when he was talking about "problem" he meant "problem getting elected to office."Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself.
“Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show.
“Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
I don't doubt that the GOP is trying to use that quote to make political hay - that's politics as usual. That doesn't mean much to me.

David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
And I'm saying that I don't get why it's offensive to say that extremists that don't appeal to the majority have a problem getting elected.

I just listened to the video of the conversation. He was not talking about getting elected and people have every right to be offended.
Darnit, I can't watch YouTube on this computer. I'll see if I can find a transcript.
