NEW YORK (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has a modest, tongue-in-cheek suggestion for people in New York City who support his agenda: move to North Dakota.

"I said, 'Move to North Dakota!"

"If I could just get about a million surplus votes in Brooklyn out to Nebraska, Wyoming," he said, drawing laughs from the crowd of about 50 people.

That’s exactly what they’ll try next if they cannot get this National Popular Vote initiative implemented.

I wish I had enough money to fly HALF of his NYC supporters to Europe. Then I would fly ALL of them HALF way!

Sounds like an argument for internal border control.

The 35.4% of US residents ALREADY receiving one or more means test Federal benefits could do this with no penalty.

You can still be non-productive and draw Federal welfare in North Dakota.

Interesting that he picked the most economically vibrant state to pick on. They are drilling and mining and fracking despite Obama’s best efforts.

I'm in South Dakota and until someone from North Dakota weighs in, I will speak for them : STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM US! We don't want you. You are big enough pains when you come as tourists. Conservatives welcome always. Others stay away! There is nothing out here for New Yorkers.

Makes total sense to him because all he cares about is getting Democrats elected. Instead of spreading wealth he wants to spread the “looters”.

New York street smart does not translate to country survival. The average New York Libtard wants every thing done for them. Trash collected, water at the turn of a knob, cell phone service, television. We that live out here choose simpler, not more. So, it is inconvenient, so they will come to demonstrate, but will run home to the great cesspools of the large cities.

And only 50 showed up to hear him speak? Awwwwww!

For a second there I thought it was a backhanded way of telling them to get a job.

Then I realized who was speaking.

It’sd happening. The small rural town I live in has been solid Republican for generations. Then a few motivated lefties move in, get on the planning board and it’s demands for “affordable housing”, which just moves the welfare crowd from the cities to the sticks.

Yep, Yep. We have septic tanks and propane tanks and crazy weather, and bad cell phone reception. My Internet and satellite TV go out when it storm. Oh and the Hail! Huge and frequent.

Then there is the poop, deer, turkey, bunny, mountain lion, pronghorns, coyotes, not to mention that they eat all your flowers and trees.

Rattle Snakes! Stay Away!

You will never have a good hair day again. It's always windy.

(I really love wliving out west, but we don't want those Nyer's here. You should see what the Californians are doing to Colorado)

It shouldn't be too hard to get them off. Vote them out or have conservatives pushed to fill the positions if it is appointed. We are taking over the garden club Repubs. over here.
The main thing is people have to be involved.

Wow is right. He sure is drawing big crowds these days. The only reason they would mover there is for JOBS. Of course, they are probably on the federal tit.

I’ve lived 2/3 of my life either living in and stationed in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska.

I can say for many I know: Keep your fascist democrat asses out! Stay in the crapholes you’ve created.
