When Tagg Romney said he wanted to run up to President Obama during the debates and “take a swing at him”, he must have known he’d receive some backlash for it. Not for thinking it, but for admitting it in a public forum (a radio interview). Apparently, he didn’t think much of it until Twitter and other social media sites blew up about it.

When asked how he reacted when Obama accused Romney’s father of lying during the debate, he replied, “Jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him. 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 that’s the nature of the process.” He added, “We signed up for it. We’ve gotta kinda sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way.”

Now that he’s apologized to Obama–he did so personally after the last debate on Monday night, saying he was “just joking”–many are saying the apology is too little, too late.
