Longtime George Romney aide Walter De Vries is no fan of Mitt. In fact I think it would be fair to say he’s embarrassed by Mitt.
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 continued, “George would never have been seen with the likes of Sheldon Adelson or Donald Trump.”
According to the New York Times, De Vries was inspired to write an essay showing his contempt for Mitt, in part, by his comments on the 47 percent.
George Romney would undoubtedly be just as embarrassed.
