Romney's Son Says Wanted to 'Take a Swing' at Obama During Debate

Political campaigns can be hard on the candidates' families, and 1of Mitt Romney's sons used some eyebrow-raising language Wednesday (October 17th) that demonstrated just how hard it can be. Tagg Romney, the oldest of the Republican presidential nominee's sons at age 42, was asked during a North Carolina radio station interview about watching the 2nd presidential debate a day earlier. He was specifically asked about hearing, quote, "the president of the United States call your dad a liar," and answered, "You want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him 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. You know, they're going to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he's not. We signed up for it. We've got to, kind of sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way." A Romney campaign spokeswoman said when asked about Tagg's "take a swing at him" comment, "He was joking about how frustrating this process can be for family." In an appearance on the TV's The View yesterday, another Romney son, 37-year-old Josh, also said his brother didn't mean it, and he joked, "That brother has slugged me a couple of times. I assure you President Obama has nothing to worry about."
Quite frankly I can understand EXACTLY how he feels. When my husband ran and lost a little local election and people lied about him I felt the same way and wish I could have done the same thing. If you have ever been in political circles you know how nasty they can get. I hate the lies and hear then daily from political commercials and candidates. Very frustrating!
Just remember to VOTE!
