Bush privately ‘upset’ with Romney.

According to the Politico’s Mike Allen, conservative columnist Robert Novak will report in his Chicago Sun-Times column tomorrow that President Bush is privately complaining about former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s “hard-line stance on immigration“:

While President George W. Bush has maintained neutrality among contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, he privately expresses to friends his exasperation with Mitt Romney’s hard-line stance on immigration. Bush is upset that Romney changed his position on the issue, compared to what it had been when he was governor of Massachusetts, at the expense of the president’s immigration reform.

In November 2005, Romney spoke approvingly of Bush’s comprehensive immigration reform effort, calling it a “reasonable proposal.” Now he regularly bashes it.
