Like Father, Like Son?

A reader flags this passage from Theodore H. White's The Making of the President 1968, which was published in 1969, on Gov. George Romney, Mitt's father:
 
"Above all, he looked like a President. Handsome, silver-haired, robust, masculine, smiling or stern, he seemed cast for the part by Hollywood's Central Casting. Correspondents who liked him called him 'Mr. Straight Arrow;' those whose flesh crawled at his pieties called him 'Mr. Square,' or worse... He would make a forthright statement one day, then, like a man making up his mind in public, contradict it or modify it on another."
