Tagg Romney has apologized to President Obama for 'swing' remark

mitt-tagg-ann-romney-getty.jpgFollowing the second presidential debate, which became quite heated at times between incumbent President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Tagg Romney, the eldest of Romney's five sons, told a North Carolina radio station that hearing the president say his father is lying makes him want to "rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him."

Tagg made the comment in a lighthearted manner, but it's election season and nothing can be taken in a lighthearted way. It got pundits all up in arms and so Tagg has issued an apology to the president, reports ABC news.

A Romney campaign official tells ABC that Tagg apologized, but no other details have been made available at this time.
