- The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 6, 2012

One of psychiatrist Sigmund Freud’s seminal contributions was the principle of “reality testing” (“Five unanswered questions about Benghazi attack,” Commentary, Thursday). The Fourth Estate’s seminal contribution to “reality testing” was the Washington Post’s investigative reporting that resulted in Watergate and the resignation of President Nixon in the face of certain impeachment.

By the same standard, it has become unambiguously clear that Barack Obama cannot govern. In my view, it is time to face this reality and genuinely move forward.
