During an appearance on the Bill Lumaye Show, a North Carolina radio program, Tagg Romney, the eldest son of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney explained how he wanted to “take a swing” at President Barack Obama during Tuesday’s presidential debate (emphasis added).
BILL LUMAYE: 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?
TAGG ROMNEY: 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 is a lot of Secret Service between you and him but also because this is the nature of the process.
While I’ve heard a lot of crazy things during the course of this presidential campaign, Tagg Romney’s comments about his desire to “take a swing” at the sitting President of the United States is absolutely disgusting and disgraceful. While I understand that many conservatives don’t respect President Obama as a man, I can’t fathom how Tagg Romney thinks his desire to assault the President of the United States is appropriate political campaign rhetoric.
