I watched Larry King's show last night. He went pretty far down in the barrel to come up with a panel, and from the pit came Tavis Smiley! He is such a hater! He hasn't gotten over the fact that Barack Obama had the right to make his announcement for running for President of the United States when he wanted to--not withstanding Tavis Smiley's little annual meeting on the same day. Tavis claims he feels sorry for Barack! I didn't quite understand that--but, then I don't understand much of what Tavis says!
I just want to say, "Oh, Tavis, please don't. I feel sorry for your inability to get over the fact that Barack won the race for President without your support, and that means a whole lot more to a whole lot more people than "The Tavis Smiley Show" has ever meant. You're okay, but you are not Barack Obama!" After rating the President's first 100 days with a B Minus, Tavis seemed to have come to his senses and began to tell the truth about the brilliance of our President--but he appeared to be in such pain admitting it. (Guess he began thinking about why he is no longer on the Tom Joyner show.)
When I hear people like Tavis who didn't give Barack half a chance during the Presidential Primary, I wonder how they can even go on these shows and pretend to be impartial! Then came poor Larry Elder--another serious hater. I feel sorry for Tavis because I really think he's a better person than he has shown himself to be in the last 2 years. As for Larry Elder, I can only shake my head in disbelief whenever I hear him. Just pray for God to help him. He's in serious trouble, and nothing other than prayer can help him.
