Tagg Romney wanted to punch Obama for calling Mitt Romney a 'liar'

tagg.gifAs if Tuesday's town hall style debate weren't feisty enough, it seems there was another near Romney-Obama physical altercation at Hofstra University.

Tagg Romney, Mitt Romney's eldest son, was asked on a North Carolina radio station Wednesday about his reaction to President Obama's claims that his father was less than truthful.

"I'm going to ask something I think a lot of people want to know, or at least I do. 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?" host Bill Lumaye asks. Tagg's response:

"Jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him," Tagg responded, laughing. "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 that's the nature of the process."


Here's the audio from the interview:

Obama never actually used the word "liar" in reference to Romney during the debate, though he did question the truthfulness of many of the governor's statements. You can watch the full debate here for the exact exchanges.

Shame on Tagg Romney for showing such disrespect to the president of this nation. President Obama holds the highest elected office of the land, voted there by the American people, and as the holder of that office he is due respect. There is an truism about how people can be judged by the fruits of their labor; and as Tagg is certainly the fruit of Mitt and Ann Romney's labors, they too should be ashamed.

It seems that Tagg is something of a bully. Whom did he get that from?

Well now...sonny boy Tagg wants to resort to physical violence like a street punk...and his Daddy practically says he'll put us into war with Syria if he's elected...does anyone else see a MAJOR PROBLEM within this families bloodline??????

Re: Statement About Same Sex Marriage Made By Illinois Rep. John Cabello:
My post has nothing to do with this man's political party affiliation. My post has to do with the ugly, despicable, depraved, vile, black-hearted, hateful, truly warped mind of this individual!!!! It's absolutely apalling to think the good tax payers of Illinois are paying such a sick-in-the-head individual to be a representative of their state. This man's vile words are completely UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! In my opinion...every person in the state of Illinois that can write, should send letters and start flooding your state house, as well as every single radio station and news station demanding this man resign from his seat!!! I'm not a gay person, and I've read plenty of mean and ugly things written on the net about gay's and lesbians...BUT THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE!!! It deserves and needs to be retaliated against....this kind of stuff SHOULD NOT be acceptable behavior from our elected officials!! The state of Illinois would do just as well to have a member of the 'skinheads' or KKK hold this man's Senate seat.....they've got the very same frame of mind!!!! People of Illinois...are you going to just passively accept this, or do something about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
