Tagg Romney Says He Wanted to Punch Obama During Tuesday's Debate


I didn’t think it was possible to out-creep Josh Romney after his intense robot scare stare, but Tagg really takes it to the next level in an interview with a North Carolina radio station earlier today. When asked how it felt to “to hear the president of the United States call your dad a liar,” he responded with this lovely bit of business:

“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.”

Charming. It’s fine and dandy to feel protective of your poor ol’ dad, but you are talking about the President of the United States of America, have some g-d respect. It blows my mind that a son or daughter of a candidate for the presidency would have the nerve to say that. This, coupled with Romney’s extremely defensive, borderline rageaholic debate style is all just a little too Halloween fright night for me.

And then, well, then there’s poor Josh Romney, straight-up crazy-eyed and terrifying, patiently waiting for T2 to pick him up for their lunch date. Never forget:
