Tagg Romney Wanted To 'Take A Swing' At The President During Debate

Sitting in the top row with his mother, Ann Romney, during Tuesday night's presidential debate is Tagg Romney. Ann doesn't look very happy...


**Edited. The previous photo was incorrectly identified as Tagg Romney sitting beside Ann Romney at last night's debate. The individual was actually Josh Romney. Tagg Romney is shown above at a campaign stop last week.


The audio above is from Wednesday's Bill LuMaye Show, Talk Radio 850, WPTF. Mitt Romney's son, Tagg, stopped in to say "hello."

Bill LuMaye, host, WTPF:

“What is it like for you to hear the president of the United States call your dad a liar? How do you react to that?”

Tagg Romney:

“Well, jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him. But you know you can’t do that because, well, first there’s a lot of secret service agents between you and him…”

The Romneys, keeping it classy. I think the secret service might be keeping a much closer eye on Tagg from here on in. They might even just pay him a little visit, as they take such talk very seriously.
