I am wondering why I am not hearing any remarks about Mr. Romney calling his own sons liars in the debate last night. What do you think? Is this projection or am I wrong?

I'm not sure what your contention is here, but it seems like Romney just provided one of his "zingers." I don't think he called his sons liars, so much as outlined a teenage stereotype. It seemed like a pretty innocent quip that a lot of parents of teenagers can relate to. It was probably a prepared retort that was meant to reduce Obama's credibility by comparing him to a teenager. I think he delivered it decently (better than you would expect from him), which is why you're not hearing about it.

Reasons for voting decision: This isn't much of a debate, but Pro's reasoning seemed sound. Since I don't even know what the resolution is, I have to vote for whoever failed to instigate this.
