(CNN)   Tagg Romney would like you to know that when he said he wanted to "take a swing" at President Obama, what he really meant was "sit respectfully and pay attention to the President of the United States as he addressed the nation"   (politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com) divider line 73

Tagg, you're it.

I.e., full of shiat.

Tagg's bark is worse than his bite? I imagine the same must be true of many members of that family, but I still wouldn't want any of them (especially the patriarch) in charge of all our nukes.
 
2012-10-24 11:37:24 AM  
I would still love to see him try it. Just to see the secret service perform a beatdown on the skanky little biatch. The look on mommy's face, pure icing on the cake.

Shut up, Tagg, you cock.
 
2012-10-24 11:38:03 AM  
This was a made up controversy anyways, not only did full context of his quote show that he was just using "take a swing at" to illustrate his level of frustration you can't even blame family members for taking it a bit personal, these are people they love and people are being mean to them.

You libtards laugh, but Tagg is actually a nationally ranked swing musician. It's not his fault that you libs are so focused on attacking american citizens that you assume he wants to punch someone

Of all the dumb things said in politics, an ill considered off the cuff remark from a non-political relative just doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me, even if I do get a weird Manchurian Candidate vibe from the entire family.

Unless he meant...you know...the other meaning of swing. But, I'm sure he'd be reluctant to make that public, being as his faith has always advocated for monogamous relationships. Besides, he told Josh about his desires, and he's been wearing the same shocked expression since.
 
2012-10-24 11:45:06 AM  
there is something very, very wrong with the Romney family.
 
2012-10-24 11:45:13 AM  
He meant take a swig with him. Apple Juice would be his first choice since in Romneyland caffeine and alcohol are banned.

Can we all just focus on the fact that there's a grown man named Tagg out there in the world? Can you imagine meeting someone who shakes your hand and says "Hi, I'm Tagg." How do you not burst into laughter?

Tagg just inferred that he wanted to take a swing at Obama, and sprawl15 implied it from his statement.

This ain't Mayberry and Tagg isn't Opie. He's a campaign adviser. Fox and the whole right wing barnyard would be on fire had an 'angry' blood relative of Obama's made that statement towards Romney.

Okay, but what about from a relative who is directly involved in campaigning, as Tagg Romney is?

Yeah, troll. And not even a good one. More fodder for the ignore list.

Fox doesn't define controversies. It wouldn't be one at the level of financial ties to firms buying Ohio voting machines, but still certainly enough to warrant a new adviser.

Perhaps they would, that doesn't make it right.

He was asked how he felt when someone called his dad a liar. He talked about how he felt and then said that he wouldn't actually do that. Not a great statement, but I am not seeing the cause for outrage that others do.

Democrats do have a habit of being spineless wimps so maybe fox could get them to drop and advisor based on some out of context quoting but it still wouldn't be a legitimate reason to .
