Rush Limbaugh: Obama Throws Gates Under Bus
OBAMA: — continue to believe, based on what I have heard, that there was an overreaction in pulling Professor Gates out of his home to the station. I also continue to believe, based on what I heard, that Professor Gates probably overreacted as well.
RUSH: Throw him under the bus, I told you, I told you!
It’s getting crowded under the bus, eh?
Michelle Malkin: The anti-police bigotry of the Left

Politico: President Obama walks back police criticism
Obama’s conciliatory moves marked an abrupt shift from Friday morning, when White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed a suggestion that the backlash from police groups could be distressing to the White House, given that Obama has enjoyed a positive relationship with the law enforcement community.

Hmmm… one can also said that Obama attacked the police because the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain. Which one is the cause and which one is the effect?
