Romney Attacked by Father's Longtime Aide

From Teagan Goddard's Political Wire

Walter DeVries, a longtime aide to George Romney, "issued a harshly worded critique of Mitt Romney, accusing him of shifting political positions in 'erratic and startling ways' and failing to live up to the distinguished record of his father, the former governor of Michigan," the New York Times reports.

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."

He added: "While it seems that Mitt would say and do anything to close a deal - or an election. 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."
