After espousing extreme positions for the past two years, Mitt Romney is now dishonestly trying to hide his real platform from voters to increase his chances of winning. But his disingenuous political ploy has not gone unnoticed. In fact, his tactics have even earned him a scathing review from a longtime aide to Romney’s own father, George W. Romney.
Here’s how his father’s aide reviewed Romney’s candidacy:
Walter De Vries, who worked for the senior Mr. Romney 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’s stinging assessment was contained in a nearly 700-word essay that he distributed to a small group of journalists with whom he has spoken over the past year. ... In a telephone interview, he said he was motivated to write the essay by “an accumulation” of Mr. Romney’s actions, like his comment about 47 percent of Americans and his decision to campaign with Donald Trump.
