Romney's son apologises to Obama

2012-10-24 13:01

Morrison — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's son Tagg has apologised to President Barack Obama for saying in a radio interview that he was tempted to "take a swing" at the president for criticising his father during a debate.

Tagg Romney on Monday walked up on stage with other family members after the third presidential debate, where cameras showed him shaking hands and exchanging words with Obama. After the second presidential debate, Tagg told a radio interviewer it made him angry when Obama questioned his father's honesty.

Tagg Romney said, quote, "You want to rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him."

A Romney campaign official confirmed on Tuesday that Tagg had apologised for the remark. The official was not authorised to discuss personal matters and thus demanded anonymity.

    The father's called "Mitt" and his son's called "Tagg". They sound like they're parts of a child's party game. Who wants to elect them???

      spillies - 2012-10-24 14:07

      Maybe those that don't want to vote for O'bummer!!! Your input shows a lack of intellect, just like your idol \Obama\. What has a name got to do with the \man\.

      Nope, only one of the idiots is standing for president, remember.

      Oh, I love rednecks. Call me babe... Wink wink @ casters

      Lol was thinking the same thing. The previous republican candidate's name is Newt short for Newton, it's like the republicans love 4 letter names. How can anyone take them seriously.

    Casters Balle are you American cause you seem to be passionate about American politics or are you Morman, and just want a Morman as the so called most powerful man in the world.

    To me this shows good character and integrity. If somebody critisized my dad, i WOULD thump him. So to the idiots above, it's only your opninion. Half of America doesn't agree with you. As for me, Obama is a looser.

      UncleShep - 2012-10-24 14:24

      it takes a giant-size, complete, total idiot to identify idiots....so what does that make ya fella?

      sheldon.matthys.9 - 2012-10-24 14:45

      In the primaries most of his repub.opponents calls him a flat out liar.Wonder what Tagg's reaction was.

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-10-24 16:42

      So the only one who can criticise is Mitt? Where did you get off the bus? Mitt couldn't even get his facts straight in the second debate, and looked like an Ass.

      juannepierre - 2012-10-24 17:23

      I always believed an idiot swung his fist because he had nothing clever to say...? I could be wrong, you sound like a thinker. And I want to subscribe to your monthly news letter... For a good laugh of course.

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-10-24 16:36

    Well, his dad isn't the sharpest knife in the kitchen. If you look at his eyes he defnitely looks demented, and some of the things he says proves it.

  • bob.slap.5 - 2012-10-24 18:46

    he is probably upset same as Zumas kids, not sure you mummy is as there are so many
