Uh oh! Asked in an interview with North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye what it was like to sit through Tuesday’s super-charged debate and hear Obama “call your dad a liar”, Tagg Romney said it made him want to “jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him”. SERIOUSLY?
He continued with his description of how the extraordinarily close race is weighing on those close to the protagonists, less than three weeks before Americans head to the polls on November 6.
He followed up his alleged joke about punching Obama by saying: “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 it’s just the nature of the process. They’re going to try to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he’s not,” Tagg, the eldest of Romney’s five sons, said.
“We signed up for it. We gotta kind of sit there and take our punches, and then send them right back the other way.” There was no malicious tone to his voice, and a campaign aide said that Romney was clearly speaking in jest.
“He was joking about how frustrating this process can be for family,” the aide told AFP.
The political slugfest has heated up in recent weeks, and it reached a peak at Tuesday’s presidential debate at a New York university, where Obama and Romney often stood just feet apart, talking over each other.
