My old friend, Joe Swallow, admits to being a Republican, at least when he was a legislator many years ago, but his letter to the editor last week makes me wonder.
He belittles Mitt by comparing him to his father, whom he knew while serving as our State Representative and says, "Mitt Romney is no George Romney." Well my friends, I knew George Romney too, in fact he appointed me a member of the Natural Resources Commission.
There's no question George Romney was an excellent Governor, smart, hard driving, and very effective but I have also met and visited Mitt and you can be assured all the good attributes of George have rubbed off on his son. In fact Mitt gained so much from his father and yes, his mother too, that he now possesses what it takes to be a great president that can turn this country around and out of the disastrous four years of the Obama administration.
