Dear Editor:

In a recent op-ed piece in The Washington Post, Mark Thiessen noted the latest hypocrisy of the Obama administration.

In his article, Mr. Thiessenrecounted how during last year’s election, Obama’s campaign went nonstop after Mitt Romney for having investments in the Cayman Islands even though Mr. Romney did nothing illegal. He noted that Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt stated that even though Romney’s actions were legal “is not technically breaking the law a high-enough standard for someone who wants to be president of the United States?”

Now, it turns out that Obama’s pick to be Treasury secretary, Jack Lew, had an investment based in the Cayman Islands. I guess if you are a Democratic nominee for a cabinet position you can get away with things that would outrage the far left ifa Republican were to do the same.

Obama’s hypocrisy is one thing you cannot blame the Republicans for, even though I am sure some will try it. Kool-Aid anyone?
