Tagg Romney Apologizes to Obama - Yahoo! News
This is pretty cool. Unlike the family of a former VP candidate in 2008, the Romney family has kept pretty damn classy when it comes to public appearances. It's good to see this guy apologize for what was a stupid comment to begin with. Also, his brother's commentary is pretty funny."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 this is the nature of the process," Tagg said. "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 gotta kinda sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way."
The comments raised eyebrows and were satirized on Saturday Night Live.
Sources tell ABC News that on stage after the debate last night, Tagg apologized to the president for the remark, a mea culpa the president quickly accepted.
A source close to the Romney campaign reports that Tagg's younger brother Josh, 37, notes that he has, in fact, taken punches from Tagg - and that the president has nothing to worry about.
