@NYTimeskrugman: "It's About Time" that the French Revolted and Voted In the Left

Paul Krugman writes that "it's about time" that Europeans like the French and the Greeks revolted against the system and brought back the left, presumably with all that that entails regarding raising taxes, increasing spending, and using generosity-tolerance-humanitarian-filled expressions and other leftist gobbledygook.

To quote Victor Davis Hanson (thanks to Instapundit):
In 2005, Paul Krugman was writing why Bush’s spending was going to crash the economy; in 2012, Paul Krugman is writing why Obama’s far greater deficit spending, on top of Bush’s debts, is not going to crash the economy, given that we need to borrow far more than our paltry $3 or $4 billion a day.
Meanwhile, Le Monde posts a table with the details of which segments of the French population voted for whom on Sunday.
