Commentator Thomas F. Schaller's recent column about the Obamacare rollout played footloose and fancy free with the facts of the president's $800 billion "stimulus" plan in 2009 ( "Obamacare rollout shockingly rough," Dec. 10). For example, Mr. Schaller gushed over "how deftly and proficiently Barack Obama and his advisers managed the implementation of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. " The truth is, the Democrats simply rammed the measure through Congress in much the same manner they later did with Obamacare.

I was going to congratulate columnist Thomas F. Schaller, who I actually thought might write something in a recent column that didn't tear down conservatives or the GOP ( "Paper or plastic?" April 15). But he sucked me in and then hit me with this stupid statement: "I wish some of the conservatives who complain incessantly about the predations of 'Big Brother' governments they fear are tracking their gun purchases would raise at least the occasional objection to how much corporations now know about the rest of our consumer behaviors.

It was nice to see columnist Thomas F. Schaller find the guts to criticize President Obama for the Affordable Care Act rollout disaster ( "Obamacare rollout shockingly rough," Dec. 10). It would have been nice for him to have also pointed out that Mr. Obama sold the program with three years of lies, but I guess that was too much to ask. Meanwhile, the obligatory ding at former President George W. Bush was typical Schaller. Andrew Hartman - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

I won't go so far as to say that Sun columnist Thomas F. Schaller is a liar. He may just be an ignoramus. But his column ("Shutdown is the Republicans' fault," Oct. 2) contains so much misleading information (disinformation?) that one can only wonder if he even understands the concept of telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. For example, he wrote, "Tea partiers ... don't care about the Constitution, the law or American political tradition. " Really?

Whistling Past Dixie: How Democrats Can Win Without the South By Thomas F. Schaller Instead of "futile pandering to the nation's most conservative voters" in the South, Democrats should build a non-Southern majority to regain dominance, argues Schaller, a University of Maryland, Baltimore County political scientist, in this focused, tactical account. The Republicans' Southern monopoly may have helped them achieve national majorities in the past, but it has never constituted a majority alone, Schaller explains.

Who is this wacko Tom Schaller, and why does he harbor so much hostility toward the people of Western Maryland ( "Don't secede; vote with your feet," Oct. 29)? The fact is that the interests of Maryland's western counties are not well represented by their state government. So why shouldn't they make some noise? Mr. Schaller labels these people as "Maryland haters. " After looking up his all-too-short biography on the Internet, it turns out that Mr. Schaller himself is not a native of Maryland but rather of New York and he has lived all over.

I read with complete dismay Thomas F. Schaller's recent column about the Western Maryland Initiative and the desire of some to secede from Maryland, the great tax state ( "Don't secede; vote with your feet," Oct. 29). Who better to write such a commentary urging people to leave Maryland than someone living off an income created by the politicians who run this state? As Professor Schaller was growing up, did he just run away from everything he did not like or agree with? Did he take his ball and go home if he didn't like the way the game was played?

Americans are a bunch of lazy layabouts who don't want to work and would rather live off the taxes generated by the toil of their countrymen. I hear some version of this rant repeatedly from people who believe that the American work ethic disappeared at some point in the past generation. Here on gorgeous Cape Cod, where I vacation, I've been thinking about the state of American work and workers. So let's clear up a few matters. First, American worker productivity is high and continues to rise.

I generally avoid trite devices like multiple-choice questions to frame a column. But I can't help myself this time, so please bear with me. Congressional Republicans rejected President Barack Obama's proposal last week to exchange a cut in corporate tax rates for an infrastructure-based jobs stimulus plan for which of the following reasons: (a) They know U.S. corporate tax rates aren't nearly as punitive for corporate America as they claim them to be; (b) They realize the 2009 stimulus worked and don't want to risk doing anything that might further improve the economy between now and the 2014 midterm elections; (c)

Whistling Past Dixie: How Democrats Can Win Without the South Thomas F. Schaller Simon & Schuster / 336 pages / $26 Southern voters have been an important component of Republican and Democratic presidential victories for more than four decades. Since the 1964 passage of the Civil Rights Act, GOP presidential candidates have actively courted white Sutherners and convinced them that the party supports their economic and moral positions. Employing what has come to be known as a "Southern Strategy," party nominees have regularly carried such states as Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina as presidents from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush won the White House.

President Barack Obama is right: All Americans could benefit from some soul-searching about race in America. This is not a message that many white Americans - or many nonwhite Americans - want to hear. The only thing people like less than being told to do some soul-searching is being told they're racist. In his speech last week following the George Zimmerman trial verdict, the president didn't use the term "racist," even if the label accurately applies to more of us than we care to admit.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman shook up Maryland's 2014 gubernatorial race by announcing they will run as a ticket for the Democratic nomination in 2014. Politically and electorally, it's a shrewd and gutsy move. Picking running mates before the primary remains unconventional. In December 2005, then-Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley surprised almost everyone by selecting Mr. Brown, then a state delegate, to join his gubernatorial ticket almost a year before the general election.
