HUFFINGTON POST: Tagg Romney Jokes About Taking A ‘Swing’ At Obama After Heated Debate

Source: The Huffington Post

Mitt Romney’s eldest son weighed in on the second presidential debate on Wednesday, joking that the debate’s contentious nature made him want to “take a swing” at President Obama.

During an interview with North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye, Tagg Romney said that hearing the president call his father a liar made him want to “jump out of [his] seat and … rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.”

He continued: “But you know you can’t do that because, well first because there’s a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because this is the nature of the process, they’re going to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it. We’ve gotta kinda sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way.”

Romney, who has reportedly taken on a bigger role in his father’s campaign in recent weeks, also divulged that Mitt often gets nervous ahead of debates.

    What baffles me is his reason for not following through his feeling, ie taking a swing at the POTUS! Which is, secret service and also the nature of the game. How about the fact that its a big no no!!?

    Why isn’t this guy being investigated. It’s not like he can’t get close to the President. This is a threat and he should be arrested.

    Romney is a liar…….

  • Who ‘jokes’ about taking a swing at the President? And one of the only things that stopped you is secret service??? “Leave my dada alone!” I can hear Prez Obama using a famous southside Chicagoans, Bernie Mack saying one of his famous lines…..

    I wish that Romney’s son had tried to hit Barack Obama. I would have loved to see him get his butt shot off! This just shows where their supposed christian values are. When Romney’s wife on Fox News called Barack a “boy” Why wasn’t this comment documented on the news!!
