The tense verbal exchange between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney during Tuesday’s presidential debate stirred anger in Romney’s son, Tagg Romney.
Tagg Romney was a guest on a North Carolina radio show when he was asked how he felt when Obama accused his father of being a liar.
Tagg said he wanted to jump out his seat and “rush down the debate stage and take a swing at him”. But when he thought about how secret service would “stomp him down” he held back.
I heard Tagg Romney’s interview and I think his comments were a natural response of action to anyone attacking his father. If someone was verbally attacking my father, I would want to react in the same fashion, defensively. In a case like this, Tagg didn’t care that Barack Obama is president of the United States.
So in the meantime as the media “blows Tagg’s comments” out of proportion on this issue, I’m sure Romney’s son made the comment out of human nature, love and protection for a parent.
What do you think?
