Pray for Obama
Pray for Obama
Now that President Obama has been re-elected, we can hope he can achieve his dream of pleasing everyone. That's going to be difficult.
This area has suffered greatly since the steel mills and glass factories closed and the demand for coal dropped. Then, with advances in automation and computerization, the same work could be done with fewer employees and workforces were reduced.
Then we have natural disasters and expensive wars. We've elected Obama to fix this mess not of his creation.
Everyone deserves to be respected. The Holy Bible states: “Whoever is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” None of us are perfect. The Bible also states: “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.”
Let's pray that Barack Obama achieves his goal for us and that our Congress works hand in hand with him.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
