Tavis Smiley stopped by 'The Joe Madison Show' on Monday. During the show, Joe asked Tavis who is his choice out of the current crops of candidates for the presidency including President Obama. He said without a doubt he would support Obama because he is the best choice base on what is out there.

He went on to say that the only thing he is trying to do is make President Obama a better president in the way that A. Phillip Randolph and Martin Luther King Jr did for the respective presdients during there day.


Watch Tavis' response below and tell me whether or not you agree or disagree with what he is saying.

  2. Upon what base of intellect or other substantial prowess can tavist make President Obama a 'better' president???? tavist is so far out of our President and our First Lady's 'league' that it's laughable. And can't everyone see that this tavist, continues to make our President a talking point in the way that he does, to get recognized by our President? Oh yes, the opportunist that tavist is, all it will take is for our President to include tavist in a 'roundtable' of sorts or appear on tavist's 'state of the union', and tavist will be fine! I hope it NEVER happens, but our President is GENUINELY kind-hearted (NOT weak), forgiving (arguably to a fault), so who knows? tavist might finally get the attention and sense of validation that he's been craving.

  3. Oh, and tavist, although there surely are some modern-day "A. Philip Randolph's" and "Martin Luther King, Jr.'s", both extremely intellectual and deeply spiritual men, YOU are NEITHER of them.

  4. I thought better, before any replies were made by any of you, about some comments that I made earlier about Tavist, and I want to retract them and apologize for them: I stated that he "is so far out of our President's 'league' ", then I referred to him as an opportunist, then inferred that he was neither extremely intellectual or deeply spiritual, none of which I know. (I'm sure that like Tom Joyner, I've simply grown frustrated with Tavist...) Still, I should not have said those things, although they might be true, yet they might not be so. It would have been more fair of me to indicate that Tavist seems TO ME not to be or to be those things, and even I know that what Tavist "seems to me" is of little to no importance... Was just venting...
