Debates can get heated—there is no better example than Tuesday’s showdown between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The jabs exchanged between the nominees were sure to alarm some—and one member of the Romney clan didn’t take too keenly to hearing “the president of the United States call your dad a liar.”

You want to “jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him,” Romney’s son, Tagg said in an interview with North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye.

“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 said.

“They’re gonna try to do everything they can do to try to make my 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 said, according to POLITICO.
