    Tagg Romney Apologizes to Obama

    Tagg Romney Apologizes to Obama - Yahoo! News

    "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.
    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.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It's cool that he apologized, but I don't think he said anything wrong in the first place.

    I know, I don't see what he said that was so wrong.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Yeah. He reacted the way many of us would react if we saw another person attacking someone that we loved. Much ado about nothing, really.

    He wasn't wrong, but an apology was warranted and it was gracious of the President to accept.

    When you say you want to hit a man, whether he's got it coming or not, you've got two choices: you can either hit him, or you can apologize for having said it. In a more civilized era, hitting the President may indeed have been a reasonable option-- but nowadays it would be considered a crime and a scandal, and a gentleman has his honor to consider. Especially when his honor might reflect on the father he is so eager to defend.
