Today marks 120 days until the November 4 general election – 120 days of obnoxious pandering by Presidential candidates, 120 days of campaign television and radio ads, 120 days for lovers of the Republic to hold their collective breath. Sigh.
Speaking of candidate pandering, Barack Obama’s recent whiplash-inducing rush away from his Leftist voting record and positions should give cause for concern. As one noted for his aptitude at quoting Scripture out of context, though, Barack Obama does have a ready-made passage he can abuse to justify his major switcheroos:
I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.
Of course, it goes without saying that I Corinthians 9:22 doesn’t say anything of the sort that would justify Barack Obama’s waffling. But the thought that he “might save some” of us from ourselves fits right in with his messianic complex. And the way this campaign has unfolded so far, I wouldn’t be shocked if Obama did quote this passage some day soon on the trail.
Now back to summertime and the non-political life.
