Tagg Romney Loves The Dairy Godmother

Mitt Romney's eldest son says Del Ray spot is his favorite in Virginia.

The eldest son of Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney says Del Ray’s is his favorite spot in Virginia, according to The Examiner’s Yeas and Nays blog.

Tagg Romney spoke with the Virginia delegation at the GOP Convention in Florida earlier this week and was quoted as saying the Mt. Vernon Avenue custard shop is tops on his Commonwealth list.

"It has got to be the best sorbet and yogurt that I've ever had in my life," Tagg Romney said.

Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight also paid a visit to the Virginia delegation in Clearwater, Fla., and said Mount Vernon Estate is his favorite place in all the world.

@OldTowner - Having lived overseas and yes, probably eaten dog meat myself, yes I know it's common. I have also eaten squirrel meat during survival training. Does that make me a bad person? Does it make the President a bad person to have eaten a dog or dog meat when he was a kid? No. How about dogs that are transported in kennels and strapped in on airplanes in the cargo hold? Does that mean their owners are bad? No. According to lefty Chris Hayes on MSDNC, Team Obama is “obsessed” with the Seamus incident because it allegedly polls horribly for Romney in focus groups. But, does this incident really matter years later when Mitt Romney's running for President? No. It is all designed to distract from the Democrats & President Obama record of failure. Like Newsweek said shortly after the Ryan pick was announced, if you think Democrats are really eager for a cool-headed debate over ideas, you’re kidding yourself.

@LeeHernly: Thanks for being candid on the dog meat. I've eaten snapping turtle, squirrel, snake and a few other odd things. However, there is a big difference between crating your dog and sending it on an airplane...which thousands of people do, and putting in in a crate on top of your car! How often do you see that? As for records of failure, try http://www.politifact.com/ or http://factcheck.org/ for reports on the Repub convention. I did and will also be checking there after the Dem convention. Then judge who is telling the truth. (And btw, have you ever run a marathon in under 3 hours??!!)

Everybody knows Liz makes the best of everything she serves! Does it really matter if he called it custard or yogurt, he probably didn't know, one thing for sure it was the best he had ever had. He isn't really telling us something all us here didn't already know.

@Oldtowner - No, I haven't run a marathon in under three hours. You do realize that both FactCheck.org & Politifact have been proven to have a severe liberal bias much like the rest of the mainstream media (yes, even including Fox News...). If you really want to show yourself to be non-biased, then do your own research like I do. That way, you yourself can judge w/o the help of a liberal outfit. For example, in an unaired interview, Paul Ryan responds to fact checker attacks that he lied in his speech @ the RNC (he didn't): http://redalexandriava.com/2012/09/02/paul-ryan-responds-to-attacks-that-he-lied-in-his-speech-video/

@ Lee H....no, factcheck.org and politifact have not been proven to have a liberal bias. They have also called the Pres and the Dems to task for half truths, etc. I can't believe you claim a site like redalexandriava is not biased....the whole red state.whatever is a shill for the GOP conservatives.....
