Al Shartpon Criticizes Ohio Democrats for "Blame Obama"
When the Reverend Al Sharpton spoke at an annual conference recently for African American elected officials there was no other place in America where you could better see the battle lines that will be drawn in next years election.

The Ohio Legislative Black Caucus was having their first annual state dinner, a time for various elected officials in the state to meet, connect and discuss various issues facing African Americans and minority legislators in the state.

Sharpton chastised Black Ohio leadership for rolling over in the face of opposition and failing to represent not just African Americans but the poor and disenfranchised. In particular, Sharpton criticized Black politicians for resting on their laurels during the 2010 mid-term elections which allowed John Kasich to squeak out a 1% win over incumbent Democrat Ted Strickland while eliminating Democrats from state-wide office.

"Most of yall were still dancing from Obamas inauguration party when the GOP swept into office last year. And now that theyre rolling back everything weve accomplished over the last 30 years you wanna blame Obama."
