According to ABC News on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, sources told them that Tagg Romney apologized to President Obama while they were both on stage on Monday, and that the president has accepted his apology. The two were seen whispering to each other after the last debate, with CNN also reporting that two Obama aides have confirmed their conversation.
As noted in the report, a source close to the Romney campaign revealed that reports that Josh, 37, Mitt Romney‘s third son, has also taken punches from Tagg, adding that the president should not be worried. Mitt and his wife Ann Davies Romney have three other sons, Matthew, 41, Benjamin, 34, and Craig, 31.
Tagg (whose complete first name is Taggart), 42, was interviewed in North Carolina radio station on Wednesday, October 17, and was asked about his comments on President Obama‘s accusations on his father during the second presidential debate, held the day before, at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York.
“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.” Tagg was quoted by Buzz Feed during the recorded radio interview.
“They’re gonna try 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 try to kind of sit there and take our punches, and then send them right back the other way.” Tagg added, who was laughing when he made his ‘swing’ remarks.
