The conservative blogosphere had a collective melt down after President Barack Obama took a picture in front of a mural of Cuban revolutionary leader Che Guevara on Monday in Havana’s Revolution Plaza.

Conservative websites jumped on the opportunity to criticize the President for posing in front of the infamous image of Guevara, which is based off a picture taken in 1960. Townhall.com called it a “gem of a picture,” while The Washington Examiner wrote that the picture created a “fresh wave of fury.”

The Drudge Report splashed the photo across its homepage with the caption “Mission Accomplished.”
