Ehrlich and Putin, birds of a feather [Letter]

Columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. recently asked "what do you think it will take to get [President Obama] to see that Mr. Putin and his fellow bullies might be playing him for a fool?"

Since it takes one to know one, Mr. Ehrlich should know — about being a bully, that is.

After all, this is the same power-besotted individual who, as governor in 2004, autocratically promulgated a ban against Sun journalists, issuing a memo ordering his staff not to speak with two Sun writers.

He even sicced his wife on the Sun and the Washington Post in 2005, having her declare that those two publications should be "punished."

At least Mr. Putin is man enough to fight his own battles.

G. F. Donnelly, Timonium
