The tense verbal exchange between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney during Tuesday’s presidential debate stirred anger in Romney’s son, Tagg Romney.

The GOP challenger’s son was a guest on a North Carolina radio show when he was asked how he felt the moment Obama accused his father of being a liar.

Tagg said he wanted to jump out of his seat and “rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.” Tagg added that the thought of being tackled and stomped by the Secret Service was the only thing holding him back.

 

“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 this is the nature of the process. They’re gonna try to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he’s not.”

Now, normally the Secret Service takes any threat of violence against the president very seriously. But in this case, the Secret Service and the media are strangely silent.

It will be interesting to see if Tagg Romney is allowed to attend Monday’s presidential debate considering his propensity for violence.
