Wimp son like wimp father.
Via Mike Nellis, this is hilarious:
Bill LuMay, WPTF talk radio: What is it like for you to hear the President of the United States call your dad a liar?

Tagg Romney: Well, you want to jump out of your seat and rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.

Of course, the only reason Tagg felt that way is because he knew that his old man needed the help. If his dad wasn't having such a terrible debate, Tagg would have been sitting back in his seat, having the time of his life. You know, like Michelle Obama did.

But unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney was utterly unable to defend himself last night. And when Tagg Romney saw his dad's ass getting kicked out there on the debate stage, he wanted rush out onto the floor to even the score.

But fantasizing about doing something and actually doing it are two different things, and when push came to shove, Tagg kept his butt firmly planted in his seat. Just like his father, all Tagg ended up doing was was dream about how things could have been. And just like his father, he's spending the aftermath whining.

6:08 PM PT: So, basically, to prove he would be El Macho Presidente, Mitt sent his son out there to say he wanted to punch Obama. Wanted to, but didn't.

6:09 PM PT: Or, as Teddy Roosevelt used to say, "scream loudly and whine like a little prick."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
