No one yet seems to have commented on possibly the weirdest moment of the debate: the first time Romney called Obama a liar. I was focused on the audacity of Romney’s insult and the weakness the President showed by not responding to it. But if you think about what he actually said, it just gets stranger and stranger:
I got five boys. I’m used to people saying something that’s not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I’ll believe it
Two points here:
1. Would a normal person call his five sons chronic liars on national TV?
2. If Tagg and the rest of the litter are in fact chronic liars, maybe they came by it naturally. Or maybe they learned it from watching their father.
