Like Father, Not Like Son: Romney Gets Mocked as “Erratic” by His Father’s Longtime Aide
Mitt Romney has reinvented himself throughout his life, behaving as a moderate while Governor of Massachusetts, then remaking himself as a “severe conservative” for the 2012 election.
Now a long time aide of George Romney has come out against Mitt Romney in a stinging 700 word essay, accusing Mitt Romney of shifting his policy positions in “erratic and startling ways”.
Walter De Vries, who worked with Mitt Romney’s father throughout the 1960s, wrote that Mitt Romney’s bid for the White House was “a far cry from the kind of campaign and conduct, as a public servant, I saw during the seven years I worked in George Romney’s campaigns and served him as governor.”
“While it seems that Mitt would say and do anything to close a deal – or an election,” he wrote, “George Romney’s strength as a politician and public officeholder was his ability and determination to develop and hold consistent policy positions over his life.”
Mr. De Vries continued, “George would never have been seen with the likes of Sheldon Adelson or Donald Trump.”
