Larry Smith - He Ain't The Brightest Tool In The Shed

Larry (Stick) Smith, County Commissioner and known liar (chancery court Spring 2007 and Fall 2008)appeared on Inside Tennessee that aired this past Sunday morning on WBIR. He made the statement that Knox County's economy was just fine, because the bond raters have improved our bond rating. Dennis Francis, pointed out that four restaurants have closed in Turkey Creek and asked Smith if the the bond raters were Bernie Madoff. Smith responded they are the qualified ones.

In addition, to the restaurants in Turkey Creek. Gridiron Burger closed on Clinton Highway as well. Image Point in downtown Knoxville has closed up shop. Anderson News Company has closed up shop. Feel free to leave more closures on in the comment section or email us here.

Smith using this rationale is like all those home mortgage companies that told people they could afford the house and mortgages they were receiving and then when they couldn't afford it anymore. They said well, the professionals told me I could.

Smith sounds like a snake oil salesman, certainly not somebody that you should ever trust his opinion. Individuals close to Smith have been overheard to say, I realize he ain't the sharpest guy in the room.
