The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama rolled to re-election Tuesday night, vanquishing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney despite a weak economy that plagued his first term and put a crimp in the middle class dreams of millions. In victory, he confidently promised better days ahead. Obama spoke to thousands of cheering supporters in his hometown of Chicago, praising Romney and declaring his optimism for the next four years. “While our road has been hard, though our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come,” he said. Romney made his own graceful concession speech before a disappointed crowd in Boston. He summoned all Americans to pray for Obama and urged the night’s political winners to put partisan bickering aside and “reach across the aisle” to tackle the nation’s problems. Still, after the costliest — and one of the nastiest — campaigns in history, divided government was alive and well. Democrats retained control of the Senate with surprising ease. Republicans did the same in the House, ensuring that Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Obama’s partner in unsuccessful deficit talks, would reclaim his seat at the bargaining table. At Obama headquarters in Chicago, a huge crowd gathered waving small American flags and cheering. Supporters hugged each other, danced and pumped their fists in the air. Excited crowds also gathered in New York’s Times Square, at Faneuil Hall in Boston and near the White House in Washington, drivers joyfully honking as they passed by. With returns from 84 percent of the nation’s precincts, Obama had 53.7 million, 49.6 percent of the popular vote. Romney had 53 million, or 48.9 percent. The president’s laserlike focus on the battleground states allowed him to run up a 303-206

margin in the competition for the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House, the count that mattered most. Remarkably, given the sour economy, he lost only two states that he captured in 2008, Indiana and North Carolina. Florida, another Obama state four years ago, remained too close to call. The election emerged as a choice between two very different visions of government — whether it occupies a major, front-row place in American lives or is in the background as a less-obtrusive facilitator for private enterprise and entrepreneurship. The economy was rated the top issue by about 60 percent of voters surveyed as they left their polling places. But more said former President George W. Bush bore responsibility for current circumstances than Obama did after nearly four years in office. That boded well for the president, who had worked to turn the election into a choice between his proposals and Romney’s, rather than a simple referendum on the economy during his time in the White House. Unemployment stood at 7.9 percent on Election Day, higher than when he took office. And despite signs of progress, the economy is still struggling after the worst recession in history. Obama captured Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado and Nevada, seven of the nine states where the rivals and their allies poured nearly $1 billion into dueling television commercials. Romney won North Carolina among the battleground states. Florida was too close to call, Obama leading narrowly in a state where there were still long lines of voters at some polling places long after the appointed closing time. Romney, who grew wealthy in business and ran the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City before entering politics, spoke only briefly to supporters, some of whom wept. “I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction,” he said. “But the nation chose another leader and so Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation.”

New England stays blue by John Tyczkowski

Results not in

Barack Obama - 303 electoral votes Mitt Romney - 206 electoral votes

With the 2012 election’s latest electoral college results, New England once again has voted Democrat, shifting its historical political party alignment. In the six elections since 1992, all New England’s votes have gone to Democrat-

ic candidates, with the exception of New Hampshire, which was carried by Republican George W. Bush in 2000. This trend lies in contrast to New England’s history as a solidly Republican region. The pattern dated back to the 1856 election, which was the first to feature the Republican

Party on the presidential scene. By contrast, with a few salient exceptions, including Virginia and Colorado voting for Obama, the rest of the country largely performed as expected in this election. For example, New Mexico followed its longstanding tradition of re-electing the incumbent, and states like Pennsylvania have solidified their electoral shift to voting Democrat. Though New England’s voting for a Democrat six elections in a row is an electoral shift, its voting for a Democrat isn’t without precedent. Democratic switches happened twice in the 136 years between 1856 and 1992. The first such switch was in the 1912 election, when all the New England states, except Vermont, voted for Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Connecticut had been the lone Democrat-voting dissenter in the 1876, 1884, 1888 and 1892 elections. The other switch was in the 1964 election, when the entire region went for Democrat Lyndon Johnson. Over the past century, New England has returned to its solidly Republican status five times, in 1920, 1924, 1952, 1956 and 1984. But Republicans carried three or more of the region’s six states in 15 of the 19

Heinrich defeats Wilson by Antonio Sanchez and Ardee Napolitano

Old men, students and children danced onstage, some of them teary eyed, at the New Mexico Democratic Party’s watch party Tuesday night as they belted out the words to a popular Black Eyed Peas song. “I got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night,” hundreds sang. And it was more than just a feeling for the Democrats, who will see four more years of President Barack Obama. New Mexico Democrat Martin Heinrich took the U.S. Senate seat, earning 50 percent of the vote. Republican candidate Heather Wilson received 45 percent and independent candidate Jon Ross Barrie received 3 percent. “The Senate race is now over,” Heinrich said as he addressed supporters at the Embassy Suites. “You can turn your televisions back on and not see those ads. But this journey has just begun.” While supporters applauded and screamed, Heinrich said he will continue to tackle progressive nationwide issues, such as higher education funding, same-sex marriage and immigration laws. In his speech, Heinrich thanked his wife and children, his supporters and the people who

donated funds for his campaign. He said his win was also a huge victory for the people. “It is people — not just money and not just PACS — who decide our elections here in New Mexico,” he said. “And I would say … with great humility that I will be the senator of New Mexico.” The night began optimistically enough at the local Republicans’ Marriott headquarters when the party took an early lead in the general election. While most supporters recognized that New Mexico has recently leaned Democratic, they stayed positive throughout the night. Married couple Larry and Leonor Reisch came to the city’s Republican headquarters with confidence Tuesday night. Larry Reisch, a veteran, dressed as Uncle Sam; Leonor Reisch, a Las Lunas substitute teacher who uses a wheelchair, carried a sign that read “‘All in’ for Obama out.” When Obama’s re-election was first announced, Larry Reisch disregarded the news. “Until I see him give a speech, it ain’t over,” Larry said. Twenty minutes later, Larry’s Uncle Sam hat drooped as he wheeled his wife out of the ballroom’s side exit. The moment of the announcement was shared disappointment. A group of attendees held similar small dishes of taquitos and salsa when the announcement was made. The group

paused mid-bite, as one woman exclaimed, “Are you serious?” At the Democratic headquarters, 14-year-old Heinrich supporter Delaney Heileman cheered for Heinrich he took the stage. Delaney Heileman, who is the youngest intern in Heinrich’s campaign, said she decided to volunteer because she wanted to help put Heinrich into the Senate. She said she shares Heinrich’s views on important social issues. “Because I can’t vote, it’s really important that I volunteer so that my voice will be heard,” she said. “He would be a very strong advocate for the middle class, for women’s rights and for equality.” Delaney Heileman’s father and UNM’s Associate Provost for Curriculum Greg Heileman said he supports Heinrich because the senator-elect prioritizes higher education. “His policies related to education and research is in line with what I believe is the right direction,” he said. “I think there’s sensitivity nationally about the cost of education … and it’s getting more and more difficult to pay for those grants. I think his priority will be education.” According to a press release from Heinrich’s campaign, Heinrich has fought to counter the Ryan Budget, which was proposed by Republican

Heinrich defeated Heather Wilson, 51 percent of votes to 45 percent. vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan last year. The budget, according to the press release, would aim to cut $21 million from Pell Grant spending and would result in 3,000 college students losing financial aid. At the Marriott, Pat Dalla, a volunteer for GOP congressional candidate Janice Arnold-Jones’ campaign said that after a long race, she was tired. Arnold-Jones lost to Democratic opponent Michelle Lujan Grisham. “I walked Saturday seven hours by myself and I said ‘No more,’” said Dalla, a

Wilson supporter. Wilson addressed the half-empty ballroom late last night, and thanked her volunteers. “You stood proudly by the virtues of free enterprise and against big government that takes away our freedoms and our personal responsibility and opportunity and accomplishment,” Wilson said. “You fought hard for what you believed in, and you worked diligently for righteous liberty and for life.

Letters Children weren’t turned away for petty reasons Editor’s note: This is in response to the letter, “UNM Art Museum shuts out young connoisseurs,” published in Friday’s Daily Lobo. In the letter, a Monte Vista Elementary School student describes his class trip to the UNM Art Museum, where he said they were turned away because they were too young to appreciate art. Editor, Sam Allred’s letter to the Daily Lobo gives me a wonderful opportunity to share with readers the UNM Art Museum’s commitment to educating public school children as well as the University community. Without exception, we are delighted to host children from prekindergarten through high school at our exhibitions. We do, however, request that teachers schedule classroom visits in advance so that a museum educator may design learning experiences for them that will connect with and support their classroom curriculum as well as assist them in understanding the art. We also require one adult per every eight children, which is standard for field trips, because we have a responsibility to safeguard the artwork as well as our visitors. As a university art museum, education about and through art is our mission. Unfortunately, Sam’s teacher had not scheduled her visit to the museum and I, the only educator on the museum staff, was engaged in leading a University class when Sam and his friends arrived. Also, only two adults accompanied the estimated 30-40 first- and fifth-graders, not the one adult per eight children which is standard practice. Because the exhibition they wished to visit, “The Transformative Surface,” has several works of art that are especially vulnerable to curious hands, and two of which can potentially trigger seizures — children younger than 12 are particularly conducive to photosensitive epilepsy, which the teacher may not have known — I dissuaded them from entering and suggested that the teacher make a reservation to visit at a later time. As the founder and director, from 1985-2005, of the nonprofit organization Art in the School Inc., which kept art education alive in APS for more than 10,000 children when the district disbanded the fine arts program, and having written my dissertation on elementary children’s aesthetic experiences in art museums, I am deeply committed to facilitating meaningful and transformative experiences for young children with works of art. Unfortunately, Sam was misinformed, as I did not tell his teacher that “children under 12 years of age do not appreciate art.” I have built my professional career on the fact that they do. Sara Otto-Diniz interim director curator of academic initiatives UNM Art Museum

Limbaugh and his ilk aren’t model citizens Editor, Reported in the “news” on Friday: Rush Limbaugh implied that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s praising of Barack Obama for the way he dealt with the damage Hurricane Sandy inflicted on states along the East Coast means that Christie has love for Barack Obama, and that it is not “right” for one man to love another man.


VA, Medicaid are thuggish in practice by Frank Martin

I had a heart attack in 2009. I have never been able to get the Veterans Affairs Hospital or N.M. Medicaid to approve the cardiac rehab required to go to school and work. Right now, I am actually enrolled at UNM due to the New Mexico Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. But originally, I was dropped as a client at N.M. DVR because I could not get the documentation N.M. DVR wanted from the VA or N.M. Medicaid. When I was discharged from the Presbyterian Cardiac Clinic after the heart attack, I had the release packet — the full Presbyterian Cardiac Clinic release packet and the prescriptions for heart medication I needed to survive, written by the cardiac doctors at Presbyterian Hospital — and N.M. Medicaid ordered Walgreens on Central Avenue to refuse the prescriptions. I was left without access to the medications for the better part of a week, and that is a virtual death sentence. I had to have N.M. Rep. Gail Chasey intervene on my behalf. Right now, I have two different prescriptions from the VA for cardiac care, outside the VA, because essentially the VA is refusing me all care at this time. Of course, N.M. Medicaid is also obstructing my access to care. As it is right now, I should not even be enrolled at UNM because I was never able to complete the cardiac rehab. Keep in mind I am as healthy as a person with paraplegia and a heart condition could be, and I really am capable of finishing school at UNM if I have support, and I can even go to work. But I face daily deliberate obstruction at the VA and at Medicaid, and access to education and employment is defined by access to medical services. So, not only did I face the Sarah Palin death panel, courtesy of

privateered Medicaid, the VA and its network of supporters — N.M. Medicaid — has been keeping me from having access to follow-up care for my cardiac condition and keeping me from completing my education and going to work. On the ground and in the trenches, and that really is what medical services for the disabled is, trench warfare, there is a complete and willful avoidance of the circumstances. I do think we have some extreme problems in medical care in New Mexico. In an effort to clear up some of the ungodly mess and the deliberate obstruction to cardiac care and every other kind of care I face at the VA and elsewhere, one of my “licensed care specialists” called up the VA Zia Spinal Cord Clinic outpatient nurse, who just screamed at her over the phone and among other things was actually screaming, “The VA has no money.” We are supposed to swallow these creepy B.S. stories because we are veterans and/or disabled. This is what anyone who is “different” faces at the VA and through Medicaid. Simply put, we are bullied and brow-beaten by poorly trained personnel each and every day and there is simply no end to it. I am looking at the “prescriptions” written by VA doctors for “cardiac rehab” such as the shoe prescriptions written by VA doctors that were written to avoid providing items and care, as in cardiac rehab, I need to finish school. It is one big fat thuggish joke and it goes on every day. At UNM, I had to laminate my prescription for my scooter because employees at UNM Enrollment Services told people I did not have a prescription for my scooter and as a consequence a sign was put up at the UNM Student Union Building prohibiting my scooter in the SUB. This type of behavior gets completely out of control during election years. I was kept out of the SUB for several weeks

this semester despite the fact that I went to appropriate offices pleading my case. The level of obstruction for disabled students is simply extreme at UNM. And for those of us actively involved in trying to bring effective change in the extreme conditions for students with disabilities, the conditions are just devastating. All institutional means under the sun, and then some, are used to disrupt access for students with disabilities through N.M. public education, at every level, and it is not going to stop. And well before the institutional discrimination that defines “public school” in N.M., disabled individuals, and in particular disabled veterans, had to navigate the medieval “fish ladder,” on the parched supply-side crag that was once a flowing creek, up and over the local, state and federal dams that divided the institutional landscape. Some do make it up the winding switchback road over the entirely insolent institutional dam in a “bubble” truck. But what about the rest of us trapped in the dried-out crags, left without shoes for paraplegia, without access to appropriate and timely cardiac rehabilitation? And why are we left in such pathetic conditions? Why, you ask? Because we spoke up about the death panels delivered by privateered Medicaid and we spoke up about the deliberate lack of access at the VA PTSD clinics and we spoke up about the deliberate killing of veterans at the VA in Albuquerque in a new America defined by inadequacy and thuggish bullying brought about by crushing, out-of-control government established after the 9/11 debacle. It does appear that neither one of these candidates running for president of the United States knows these things are going on and it appears that neither one is going to do anything about the situation. And to speak of these circumstances in any way brings immediate retribution.

These statements by Limbaugh are a clear indication to me of how far from the teaching of Jesus and any degree of morality some of us in this country have strayed today. Jesus tried to teach that “love for all” was the most important thing of all. He also tried to teach that the only appropriate way for us to deal with each other is to work together cooperatively and compassionately to manifest what is best for us all at the expense of none. And what path is Limbaugh, and some others, walking today? The path of “I will never seek to find ways to work with those who do not share my beliefs, and instead I will only seek to find

fault with them and destroy them for the sole purpose of gaining more power and wealth for myself.” Dear fellow citizens of this once-great united nation on a hill admired by many: We have allowed ourselves to become a divided and crumbling nation on a hill for all to see and be glad that they are not making the errors we are making. There is still time for us to become the United States again. So let’s unite, despite our diversities of opinion, and regain the moral and admired position we once had in the world.

Voters OK renovations, wage hike Min. wage increase passes by comfortable margin by Megan Underwood

People who earn minimum wage in Albuquerque will make $1 more every hour beginning January 2013. The Albuquerque Minimum Wage Ordinance, which passed with 66.23 percent of the vote, will increase minimum wage from $7.50 to $8.50 and will increase wages each year as the cost of living increases. It will also increase wages for employees who receive tips from $2.13 per hour to 45 percent of minimum wage, about $3.82 per

hour. In 2014, wages for employees who receive tips will increase to 60 percent of the minimum wage. But the wage increase will not affect employers who spend $2,500 annually for employees’ child or health care benefits. The ballot measure proved controversial as some voters felt increasing the minimum wage would hurt small businesses by raising labor costs, which in turn would hurt New Mexico’s economy. UNM student Forrest Pitts said he disagrees with the increase. He said it will raise unemployment, which will make it harder to get hired in the future. “I can’t get a job right now. I just want a job even if I only get paid $5 an hour,” he said. “I just want to be

able to afford to eat at Frontier, not Tucano’s.” But UNM student Jacob Klien said increasing the minimum wage is crucial due to the increase in the cost of living in Albuquerque. “I make minimum wage right now,” he said. “You can’t make a living that way.” UNM student Jaclyn Serru, who works as a waitress part time to pay for school, said the increase in the tipped wage will benefit people like her. “When the cost of living increases, we can’t work more hours because we’re focusing on school,” she said. “I’m tired of getting paid $2.13 an hour. People don’t always understand how much we depend on tips.”

Bond C will fund UNM building revamps by Megan Underwood

Bond C passed, which means that UNM will receive $24.5 million in funding for building renovations for all UNM campuses. Bond C, which received 61 percent of the vote, will provide $120 million to public universities and colleges throughout New Mexico for renovation and improvement of campus buildings. The measure will not increase taxes because the

UNM Valencia Campus will receive $1 million to fund the construction of a parking lot and loop road, road replacement, upgrades for plumbing, heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems. UNM student Nicole Nevarez said she often has class in Castetter Hall and that the renovations funded by Bond C are necessary. “The buildings that we are in, in order to get our education, are not up to code at all,” she said. “The ability to have money for renovations without putting a burden on the taxpayers, who primarily pay for public education, is awesome.”

Jeri Clausing

The Associated Press ALBUQUERQUE — Democrats kept control of two of New Mexico’s three congressional districts with the election Tuesday of Michelle Lujan Grisham to represent the Albuquerque area. Lujan Grisham easily defeated former Republican state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones after an uncharacteristically quiet campaign for what is traditionally a swing district known for its hard-fought races. Lujan Grisham replaces Democrat Martin Heinrich, who defeated his predecessor, Republican Heather Wilson, for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat. Although the majority of voters in the district are Democrats, Wilson managed to hold the seat for a decade before giving it up in 2008 to make her

Senate race

first run for Senate. Heinrich had held the seat since then. It is the most competitive of the three congressional districts in New Mexico. In the other two, Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Luján and GOP Rep. Steve Pearce easily held onto their seats. In the heavily Democratic 3rd District representing northern New Mexico, Lujan defeated Jeff Byrd, a rancher from Quay County. In the Republican 2nd District that represents the southern part of the state, Pearce defeated Evelyn Madrid Erhard, a community college professor from Mesilla. Lujan Grisham is a former Bernalillo County commissioner and former state health secretary. ArnoldJones is a former state lawmaker who made a losing bid for governor in 2010. The two clashed on issues such as the economy, taxes, health care and

government regulation, but it was not been as bitter as past races, or as the Senate race being waged between her two predecessors. Arnold-Jones pushed for streamlining the tax code and decreasing government regulations, two moves she said would help spark growth in New Mexico, one of the poorest states in the country. Lujan Grisham stressed “public-private partnerships” in helping spur a sluggish economy and vowed to fight any effort to restructure Medicare. Shortly after declaring victory Tuesday night, Lujan Grisham said she is looking at consumer protection and jobs bills “to put New Mexicans back to work.” With Lujan Grisham’s victory, the balance of New Mexico’s congressional delegation remains the same.

something to contribute to make things better, you have to go do that and so we will see that, and if not, I’ll go work on my garden,” she said. Heinrich said that in the following years, he is going to focus on longterm solutions to social and econom-

ic issues around the country. He said he will work to promote economic recovery throughout the country, work which “started four years ago.” “Together we will prove that the Land of Enchantment can be the land of opportunity,” he said.
