Al Sharpton is NOT PLAYING
'Sharpton: Obama critics backed Clinton in 2008'
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/09/28/ap/government...

(AP) WASHINGTON The Rev. Al Sharpton said he will lead a march in Washington next month in support of President Barack Obama's jobs plan and he dismissed blacks who criticize Obama over high black unemployment as having backed Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2008.

As Sharpton announced plans Wednesday for the Oct. 15 March for Jobs and Justice, he was asked whether there is a double standard in failing to hold Obama accountable for joblessness among blacks. The leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., has said there is and that had President Bill Clinton failed to do the same, black leaders would have marched on the White House.

The double standard, Sharpton said, is that most black politicians who publicly criticize Obama did not initially back his 2008 presidential bid they supported Hillary Clinton, who is now secretary of state.

"We did march when (Bill) Clinton was president. I led the march on racial profiling. They weren't in the march, so maybe the reason they didn't think nobody marched on Clinton was because they missed it," Sharpton said.
