Republican hypocrites

To the editor:

Republican hypocrisy constantly stuns me.

1. National Security Agency spying: PRISM began under Bush, who also rammed down our throats the Patriot Act, specifically to legalize such NSA actions, but only now the GOP hates Obama for spying on us?

2. Associated Press phone hacking: Since when do Republicans object to finding leaks of secrets?

3. Internal Revenue Service investigations: Politics aside, doesn’t any group named “Taxed Enough Already” trying to set up tax shelters deserve investigation?

Stop witch-hunting, GOP. It failed under Clinton, and it will fail now. Oh, one more thing: Obamacare is now law. Ha ha.
