WASHINGTON  - Former US President George H.W. Bush backs Mitt Romney for president, the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday, an important boost for Romney from the Republican establishment less than two weeks before the Iowa caucuses.

The comments were not a formal endorsement but Bush told the newspaper he had known Romney for several years and also knew his father, former Michigan Governor George Romney.

"I think Romney is the best choice for us," Bush told the newspaper.

He cited Romney's "stability, experience, principles" and said, in a possible reference to Romney's famously volatile rival Newt Gingrich, "He's a fine person. I just think he's mature and reasonable - not a bomb thrower."
