Doesn’t Everyone Just Miss Him – Romney To Charge $5,000 to Donors to Hear Him . . .

Well, Hear Him Do Something

The ability of the human mind to forget is a problem most of the time, but in the case of Mitt Romney the forgetting just cannot happen too quickly.  Mr. Romney has had little public attention since he lost the Presidency.  Oh he went on Fox News to whine and complain, and he went to CPAC telling them he really, really was a true Conservative and not to make the same mistakes he did. 

But interest in public policy is not Mitt’s thing.  The Presidencial run was largely an ego trip, Mitt wanting to be President because he was entitled to it.  That he really had no interest in public policy is evident by his post election activities.

The former presidential candidate sent out an email Thursday evening to bundlers and big donors, asking them to join him for a four-day June summit in Park City, Utah. The cost: $5,000.

This of course is just the natural follow up to his employment decision after the election.

Romney recently announced he was joining his son, Tagg Romney, and aide Spencer Zwick’s investment firm Solamere Capital. He will also be giving a presentation on the Solamere Founders Fund update following the first evening’s official program, according to the email.

But there is good news.

As we only have capacity for a small group of people to be part of this gathering, invitations will be kept to a limited group of industry and thought leaders.”

So it looks like The Dismal Political Economist will be unable to secure a seat.  As for Mitt, here’s a word of advice.  Try not to make disparaging remarks about the people who are not multi-millionaires and billionaires.  It didn’t go too well for you the last time you did that.
