Update: Tagg Romney Decides Not To Run For Kerry's Seat

UPDATE: Tagg has decided "the timing is not right" for him to run. So no, we won't have another Romney to kick around.

Tagg Romney was so angry at President Obama that he wanted to throw down on him to protect his father's honor or something.

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.

Now Tagg is considering protecting the GOP by stepping in to sub for Scott Brown and try to take John Kerry's Senate seat in the upcoming special election.

Tagg Romney is considering a run in the special Senate election now that Scott Brown has opted out, the Truth Squad has learned.Related: Former Mass. Gov. Weld says no to Senate runCalls for Romney, 42, to join in the short campaign to replace Secretary of State John F. Kerry have increased since the Herald first reported heavyweight Republicans are urging both Romney and his mother, Ann, to get in. The eldest son of former governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney already has statewide name recognition and could quickly ramp up the campaign infrastructure for a short, five-month race.

The father of six was a regular on the campaign trail in both of his father’s failed races for president in 2008 and 2012, which would give him some political know-how while working to win over Bay State voters. But the younger Romney is weighing joining the fray against remaining with his successful venture capital firm, Solamere. Many Democrats also have noted Mitt Romney’s dismal Bay State returns in the most recent presidential election, losing the state by 23 points.

I'd love to send him home, crying over his own loss at running for public office after he's witnessed his father getting pummeled for two consecutive presidential races. I do hope that if he is going to follow his father's footsteps, if he has a dog---please refrain from tying him on to the roof of the car.
