WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is sounding a conciliatory tone after his re-election victory, saying he has learned from those who supported him and those who opposed him. And he says he returns to Washington "more determined" and "more inspired."

He said he's hoping to work with Republicans to solve the nation's problems.

He spoke to a cheering crowd in Chicago shortly after Mitt Romney told supporters in Boston that it's time for the nation to unite behind the president.

Obama said he wants to meet with Romney to discuss how to work together.

As he starts his second term, Obama will once again be dealing with a Republican-controlled House and a Senate led by Democrats.

Congratulations are in order for President Obama on his second successive victory at the polls. His win over Mr. Romney was predicted by most pre-elections polls. Took me only 40 minutes to do my civic and Godly duty. At other nearby polling places, lines snaked around the building. Fortunately, we were blessed with a coolish temperature of about 75 degrees throughout the day in my adopted State of residence.

The President will have his hands full in his second term trying to get any meaningful legislation passed with the Republican opposition adopting their well-known 'nyet' (Russian for no) stance. The country is roughly divided along party lines. The difference makers are usually Independents such as myself.


Some here are saying that the President's re-election was due primarily to his popularity rather than substance. They point to the dismal overall economic performance in the last four years. Also, the fact that he came out recently in support of same-gender marriage and abortion rights delighted both constituents, the vast majority of whom voted for the President.

As Christians, we're commanded to pray for our leaders. We should be praying for things such as salvation if needed; wisdom to make decisions that please the Lord and therefore benefit the governed; protection, health and strength to discharge duties and responsibilities of his office. I'm asking Bim Christians while they're praying for Mr. Stuart and other leaders there, to bring world leaders including President Obama before the throne of GOD. Thanks.
