Libertarians For Obama

By Kleinheider

Joe Lance shows how both the left and right wing of the libertarian movement are showing strong support for Obama: Despite the fact that neither Wright nor Hawbaker mentioned it specifically, a leading cause for libertarians and their ilk to support Barack Obama is their shared position on the country’s involvement in Iraq. Obama famously opposed authorizing the President to send troops before he was yet in Congress. Most of the major candidates in the 2008 election cycle supported the war; several were Senators who directly voted to start it.
Even though Obama is not a libertarian, it is interesting that he has drawn at least modest numbers of them to his cause.
