Tagg Romney Wanted To "Take A Swing" At The President During The Debate
punch the president during last night's debate.
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."The reason Tagg Romney didn't physically assault the sitting president of the United States is because there were Secret Service agents in his way? Let's hope some of those agents "get in his way" before the final debate. He should not be allowed to attend.
UPDATE: Via my pal Karl Frisch, here's the audio.
NOTE: I misidentified Tagg Romney in the photo used for the first draft of this post. Thanks to a kind tip from Karl, I've replaced that photo with the correct Romney son.
