Tagg Romney Swings his Purse at Obama, Hits Secret Service Agent by Mistake, Wakes Up in ICU
Needless to say, if Tagg Romney had assaulted Obama, he wouldn’t be tangling with the President. He’d be grappling with a Secret Service agent who — in order to become a Secret Service agent — was required to do a one-arm overhead press with a kettlebell of half his bodyweight, and do ten minutes of nonstop one-arm kettlebell snatches. Good luck. They don’t teach that in prep school.
Funny how bluebloods and trailer trash both give the same wacky first names to their kids. Why is that?
These smug sheltered born-on-third-base types always think they’re above any sort of accountability; above the rules that everyone else has to follow. A perfect example is Tagg Romney’s offense at hearing his lying pusbucket father being called a liar.
Ann Romney’s “You People” comment is another example.
And now we have another glimpse of the Real Mitt Romney, the Mitt Romney we get when the public — supposedly — isn’t listening, so he can take off his Ward Cleaver mask: Last June, Mitt Romney was in a conference call with the National Federation of Independent Business. Assuming that no members of the lowly public would ever hear it, Romney told these business owners to make sure their employees vote to protect “your enterprise and therefore their job.”
He told these entrepreneurs to “make it very clear” to their employees that President Obama is “hostile to small business, and to business overall.”
This article has a link to the audio of Romney’s conference call with the National Federation of Independent Business.
Romney probably didn’t break any laws with these “suggestions” to employers. After all it’s not illegal to be an asshole.
But according to somebody quoted in the linked article, Romney was practicing “voter intimidation.”
But hey, Mitt Romney was born on third base, so it’s OK.
