He could talk about his father, or maybe not. George Romney, born in Mexico, was a principled politician who didn’t support Barry Goldwater’s nomination in 1964. He was nearly ousted from Richard Nixon’s cabinet for aggressive pursuit of racial integration in the suburbs. He opposed the Vietnam War. He not only paid a much higher rate of income tax than did his son, but he made public those taxes — 12 years of returns.
George Romney would be booed at this year’s convention.
His father seems like a solid individual. The kind of politician who doesn't exist anymore.
His father was awesome.
If his father were running I'd be voting Republican.
By comparison, Mitt is so out of touch with America.
It's sad. Mitt's too rich, selfish, and narcissistic to know what normal people go through.
