Cornell West & Tavis Smiley are at it again. But they don’t talk tough to Bill O’Reilly. Naturally, of course.

With great interest it's noted, Cornell West and Tavis Smiley challenge President Obama at every turn. 

Notice the other night how Bill O'Reilly treated them, even openly talking down to them.  But hey, it doesn't matter to West/Smiley, as long as they are the ones in the media spotlight.

I will say it.  Both of them need to go somewhere and sit down, and pimp other issues, not the President of the United States.

It's amazing the tone West and Smiley use for President Obama, and how they were put in their place by O'Reilly.

Nobody heard anything from West and Smiley during the Clinton years, but that's right Tavis, you got your invitation to the White House. 


WEST: We're not talking about isolated individuals. We're talking about chronic —

O'REILLY: Wait a minute, professor. No filibustering here. It's not that the message is wrong. It's not that the message is wrong. We do need to tighten up the loopholes. Everybody knows that. Barack Obama has chosen not to do that.


TAVIS SMILEY, PBS BROADCASTER: Three things. No. 1, it wasn't socialism apparently when we bailed out the banks in the first place. That pretty much fits a textbook definition of socialism what we did for the banks that you don't want to acknowledge, no. 1.

No. 2, you're right about the fact that Stanley O'Neal respectfully should have been chased down the sidewalk. He should be asked to account which raises a couple of questions.

No. 1, I know you did not mean —


O'REILLY: What do you mean I lied about it? Wait a minute, Tavis. Don't call me a liar on this program. What did I lie about?

SMILEY: Bill, I said you were right, r-i-g-h-t, you were right about.

O'REILLY: Oh I was right about. I apologize.

SMILEY: Yes, calm down. Calm down


WEST: Everybody lies. Bill, you lie, too, brother.

O'REILLY: I don't lie, professor. So there you go.

WEST: Oh I don't know about that.

O'REILLY: All right. I'm right about — I'm right about O'Neal. But I had to correct the professor who is saying that I'm promoting that and I'm not promoting it.


SMILEY: You're right about —

O'REILLY: Wait, wait, stop.

SMILEY: I haven't answered your question yet, Bill.

O'REILLY: All right, let's get down about what —

SMILEY: I haven't answered your question yet.

O'REILLY: — what these protesters want. And President Obama himself —
