Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is interviewed by Tavis Smiley on the President’s speech last Saturday night to the annual CBC Dinner. I’m not a huge Tavis fan. Frankly, I think he focused too much on the President during his poverty tour as if poverty began in January 2009 when President Obama took office. However, there are a few interesting points made during this interview. Note Rep. Jackson Lee’s attempts to bend backwards to explain what the President said rather than pile on.
