Tagg Romney on Debate: I Wanted to Punch Obama!

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney's son, Tagg, wanted to tag the Prez in the face the other night.

During a radio interview, the oldest of the Republican White House candidate's five sons was asked for his thoughts on Tuesday's presidential debate with Barack Obama.

His reaction to the often heated affair moderated by Candy Crowley?

Tagg's first instinct was to walk out there and "take a swing at him," he said of hearing President Obama accuse his father of lying, but "of course you can't do that."

There's "lots of secret service around," for one. Also, this is "part of the process."

One that mercifully comes to an end, for better or worse, on November 6.

Tagg, who was clearly kidding about throwing literal punches, added, "You know they will do everything they can to try to make my dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it."

"We gotta kinda sit there and take our punches, then send them back the other way."

Who ya got?

I would like to mash Mr. Potato head, Obama, myself.

I would like to punch him too, if it wouldn't send me to jail for life. Obama is arrogant and smug, and someone needs to wipe the smirk off his face.

Obama is very smart, modern, well educated thinking man.
The potato head is Mitt who is a few decades behind the reality. He is ARROGANT, dishonest, manipulating and rude.

Do you really believe Obama is a smart, modern, well educated thinking man? I read that he barely passed his grades at 50%-no knowledge of military, economy or executive material. Boy are you Democrats being fooled. Your comment about Mitt sure fits Obama to a T.

How despicable! It's bad enough that his father was so disrespectful to the President of the United States, practically telling him to "shut up" on the public stage. I guess the truth hurts, huh! And I'm glad the president finally put R-money in his place and called him out on his lies and flip-flops and instant changes of position on issues, according to the group in front of him at the time. Romney showed himself to be the epitome of "The boss you hate at work," not a potential Leader of the Free World and president of the United States. I do pray he is defeated in the election.

Hey at least a "boss you hate at work" means you have a JOB! Obama wants an unsustainable, unemployed welfare state paid for by loans from China.

What a self-entitled little shit. Who the hell goes on air and says he wanted to punch the president in the face? And the only reason he wanted to do it was because Obama finally called out Romney on being the liar that he is. If this man can't accept that his father is a hypocrit and a liar, then he has serious problems. And, it's not like his opinions matter much anyways.

What family member wouldn't want to punch the a$$hole that calls your father a liar?? Let's look at the facts, and you'll see that Obama is a name-calling bully with no substance to back up his claims.

You speak like you imagine being a member of his family.He makes you feel that way- it is called politics.
I honestly wish you the best no matter who wins.
When Clinton left the office America was in very good shape. So, Democrats were doing something right...The way things work in economics and on the market is that it takes periods of 8 to 10 years for some consequences to show. Bush enjoyed starting his presidency when economy had surplus. Then, he made a MESS which continued well into Obama's term. Obama needs to finish his work it is not the end of recovery now, just the middle. Economics has its rules and we need more time to see the results. Romney can't come in with a magic wand and change everything in four years. It is a joke.

Just look at France where the top earners are taxed 75% of their income. 75%!!!! What motivation would anyone have to work hard and achieve the "American Dream" if you knew that level of taxation was your "reward"? It was WRONG when Britain extremely taxed the colonialists who founded our nation, and the direction Obama is taking our nation is also WRONG. Higher taxation and more government control is exactly what our founding fathers fought against. I am just aghast at how many Americans would rather watch "Honey Boo Boo" than raise their voices in outrage and VOTE OBAMA OUT!

Well, thank you, I do appreciate your comments, and the opportunity to engage. (I hope that doesn't come across as sarcastic). I agree that Clinton did a good job with the economy; I also agree that the term with Bush was starting the dip back down. However, I do not agree that President Obama deserves another four years to see results. The direction he is taking America in will lead to our downfall. Just look at what is happening around the world in countries like Greece (too much government spending and taxes led to economic ruin).

You are so naive and stupid, I feel sorry for you. You must be one of these young uneducated people who live in expectation of becoming rich overnight by a miracle like believing in Romney changing your life. He is running for the office to make himself and people like him more rich, STUPID.

Hey Lana, I don't think we need to resort to name calling. I am neither young nor stupid; what I am is a female, a Latina of Puerto Rican heritage, a conservative, a college graduate, a business owner, and disappointed with the current administration's policies and their subsequent effect on our economy and businesses. So I just like to let people know that not every female and not every minority is drinking Obama's KoolAid.

Speaking of facts...Mitt Romney is a lying asshole. He flip-flops more than any presidential candidate than I've ever heard speak, and he has absolutely no respect for anyone that isn't a rich, white, straight, land-owning male, and Obama called him out on it. I applaud that.

No, Romney is not a flip-flopper, as the left like to call him. He is a MODERATE conservative. That means that he is willing to find common ground on both sides of an issue. People accuse him of playing both sides, but he has a good track record of working with both parties to get the job done, and I can't understand why that is a negative thing. It's called tolerance and compromise, not flip-flopping. That is exactly what we need as a country.
