What Goes Around Comes Around

I haven’t followed the President’s fall campaign schedule that closely. It seems that this president is always in some sort of campaign mode. I understand he gets depressed and becomes increasingly bitter when he is at the Whitehouse for too long. He has been traveling to small towns in America and holding closed meetings in back yards. I was listening to some of what he was saying in a couple of these meetings with his supporters.

He was speaking about his successes with the war in Iraq. He also was asked about his religion and responded that he is a devout Christian (I recalled he recently made a walk to church from the Whitehouse with his family. How nice). He was not bashful in verbally attacking those who do not agree with him in these meetings, even lambasting “supporters” who stated they were less than enthusiastic with his record to date.

I was contemplating this when something came to my mind. It seemed I had heard the president speak about these things before. In fact, while he was running for the office which he now holds he was widely reported as saying, “You go into some of these small towns … And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them … as a way to explain their frustrations.”

I thought, “What goes around certainly comes around, doesn’t it?”

Matt 7:1-2, “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
