Libya reminds us that wingnuts like Glenn Reynolds were dead wrong about Obama.

Look at this smug triumphalism from Putz.
ANOTHER RUBE SELF-IDENTIFIES: YOU CAN CALL ME “SMUG” AS LONG AS YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THE STING. You were played. I told you so at the time. The whole hope-and-change thing was an obvious con, and you were among the rubes who fell for it anyway. And yeah, I’m rubbing it in.
Uh, what? Most people on the left I know who voted for Obama did so knowing that he called for increased defense spending and that he had supported just about every military action the US has taken since Vietnam -- except for Iraq.

The surge in Afghanistan was disappointing, but predictable. The withdrawal from Iraq seems sluggish, but is progressing. But the Libyan no-fly zone isn't surprising. Obama's never seriously challenged the wisdom of Pax Americana.

But wingnuts like Putz were insisting that a vote for defeatist, America-hating, pro-Arab Obama who ZOMG WANTS TO TALK TO IRAN!11!! was a vote to surrender to the Islamofascists.

And clearly, that was all wrong.

Who are the rubes, exactly?
