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?

CNN has come under fire for moderator Candy Crowley's performance at this week's presidential debate, but the network brass is standing by its political correspondent.

Some observers feel she was disproportionately harsh on Mitt Romney. The network doesn't believe it, but worries about anything that "calls into question CNN's impartiality."

CNN's Managing Editor Mark Whitaker sent an email around the office praising Crowley and trying to blunt criticism that she was biased toward President Barack Obama.

It reads:

Mitt Romney's quote that he brought "binders full of women" into his cabinet as Governor of Massachusetts has taken on a life of its own since last night's second presidential debate.

Predictably, the comment (watch video clip above for context) has been heavily spoofed with clever array of visuals on a new Tumblr blog in the last 12 hours.

Selected memes feature a Trapper Keeper, a text from Hillary Clinton, binders from HIMYM's Barney Stinson and Hugh Hefner, and much more.

Barack Obama showed up for his first presidential debate of 2012 last night in Hempstead, N.Y., to the delight of his many celebrity supporters on Twitter.

Unfortunately, this was his second presidential debate with Mitt Romney, who cleaned his clock the first time and wasn't exactly backing down Tuesday.

Here were some of the many celebrity Twitter reactions, in 140 characters or less:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: That debate was better than a real housewives reunion.

Mary J. Blige: "Great Job on debate Mr. President! I never lost faith in u!"

Jill Biden: Lucky for me, "Jeremy" was one of my drinking game words. #Debate

After a game-changing first encounter October 3, we were quite anxious to see how the second presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney would play out.

Who do you think won the rematch tonight?

Obama and Romney

Was this the event Obama needed to right the ship after Romney easily won their first meeting and shifted the dynamic of the race? Or did the challenger keep him on the ropes?

What was the most meaningful exchange? Did tonight's town hall style showdown at Hofstra University on Long Island alter or reinforce your opinion of either candidate?

Is the media grossly misreporting the taxes paid by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney? According to one review of his 2011 return, very much so.

Mitt and Ann Romney's 2011 adjusted gross income (AGI) was about $18.6 million, with their total federal income tax coming to $1.9 million, or 14.1 percent.

This number is a bit misleading, however, when analyzing Mitt Romney tax returns.

It implies the Romneys kept 85.9 percent of what they earned, which isn't the case.

While Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remark became a campaign land mine for the Republican this fall, another quote from that same viral video has been largely ignored.

Until now, if Rosie Perez has anything to say about it.

The actress just recorded an ad for a Democratic PAC focusing on Romney joking that if his Mexican-born father had had Mexican parents, he would “have a better shot at winning this.”

She did vote in the 2008 presidential election, however.

David Letterman (jokingly, mostly, maybe, sort of) predicted that Mitt Romney will lose this year's presidential election due to his snub of The Late Show.

Last week, Dave urged voters to vote against Mitt unless he came on the program. With Romney still reluctant to do so, Letterman now predicts his defeat.
