Thanks Obama forever

One interesting aspect of the developing Republican backlash against police abuse protests is that it's a convenient way for them to continue blaming Barack Obama for everything even as he's on his way out.
On Saturday Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana governor who has not yet declared his candidacy for the GOP nomination, accused the president of having a divisive tone on race. Jindal was responding to a question about recent riots in Baltimore which followed the death in police custody of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African American man.

“We’re not just talking about Baltimore or some of the incidents recently, but I’ve said I think for quite some time the president continues to divide us,” Jindal told reporters following a speech at the South Carolina Freedom Summit, a conservative gathering of grassroots activists.

“He tries to divide us by gender, by age, by geography, by race – and I think that’s wrong. Part of his job is to unite us and bring us together.”
This is quite an accomplishment for Obama. Remember a few years back he ended racism by being elected President.  Now apparently racism is back and it's all his fault this time.  Gonna be a fun election season.
