Unfair to Corbett

| Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

It's time that the media stop treating Gov. Corbett and Republicans so unfairly, especially when they constantly give a failing President Obama a free pass.

Corbett is a forward-thinking governor with a strong vision for Pennsylvania. Since the day he took office, he has been working to ensure that every Pennsylvanian who wants a job has a job.

As a resident of Western Pennsylvania, I can clearly see the results of his hard work and dedication to bringing new industry and innovation to the region. Just look at the Shell petrochemical complex. This facility that Corbett fought to bring to Beaver County will bring 20,000 new jobs to the area.

Corbett is the definition of a pro-jobs governor, with a strong record of job creation that's being recognized across the state. He received a Pittsburgh Business Times Energy Leadership Award this year. He's not just pro-jobs, he's pro-energy jobs, and energy jobs will make Pennsylvania a leader nationally in job creation and internationally in energy production.

Too bad Obama won't accomplish in eight years what our governor has done in two and a half.

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.
