    up in the elderly because we notice it.  Likely, the inability to separate real experience from what other sources relate is present long before, but we don't bother to check most stories, presuming that people are telling the truth.
    It really is very time-consuming to check out every assertion.  Makes sense to presume probity, like innocence, and reserve the effort for when it really counts.
    Reagan making up war stories from the movies he'd acted in was forgiven.  Perhaps Willard's handlers figured a nostalgic recitation would be forgiven.  Willard's obviously incapable of retelling his own emotional memories because there are none.  They have to prepare him a script.  

    It's strange that the instinct-driven have few emotional involvements.  Dogs show more attachment to their masters than these people do to their families.  "Opportunist" is probably a generous term in that it implies judgment.  Robotic Romney simply responds to prompts which look good in the moment.  Running for President is an opportunity. Opportunity costs are born by someone else.
