Tough Talking Tagg Romney

Tough-talking Tagg Romney, the oldest of the Romney litter is the heir to the family dynasty. Tough-talking Tagg, obviously must not be shamed by any comparison with the example of England's Prince Harry, an heir to the centuries-old British Throne. Prince Harry is a helicopter pilot, serving in combat in Afghanistan, at this very hour. Vice President Joe Biden's son Beau is a major in the Delaware Army National Guard and served a tour of duty in Iraq beginning in 2008.

Obviously, neither Tough-talking Tagg Romney, nor his momma Miss Ann, nor his daddy have ever read about Presidents John F. Kennedy, or George H.W. Bush, both of whom were wounded in combat. No. Their religious missionary service is equal to the blood-and-tears-service of those who put on the uniform and risk their lives for this country's gun-slinging foreign policy, a policy which Gov. Romney wants to continue and expand.

No, Tough-talking Tagg Romney, according to Truth Out.org is now serving his country in another way: "Through a closely held equity fund called Solamere ... [Tagg and his family] holds a majority share ... in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7. Hart machines will also be used elsewhere in the United States."

In other words, a candidate for the presidency, and his brother, wife and son, have a straight-line financial interest in the voting machines that could decide this fall's election. These machines cannot be monitored by the public. But they will help decide the winner of the presidential election.

Tough-talking Tagg doesn't just talk-the-talk. He walks-the-walk.
