Romney is already Selling Seats for Inauguration Event for $50k

Election Day is still nine months away, but Mitt Romney wants his supporters to know that all of their hard work and thousands of dollars worth of donations won’t be forgotten. Romney is prepping for a victory party and you’re invited!

All it will take is some serious wishful thinking and around $50,000.

One of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s biggest supporters began circulating an email over the weekend in which he explains to other Republican Party proponents of the candidate that their contributions toward the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign will have a serious payoff. And to say that the author of the email is a bit optimistic could be more than just an understatement.

In the email penned by Romney pal Richard Stormont, the former Marriott hotel executive explains to supporters that their campaign contributions will get them more than just a Christmas card next year. For Romney’s biggest fundraisers, a seat will be secured at an upcoming inaugural retreat with the country’s next president.

The catch here, however, is kind of a big one. Romney is still a few months away from presumably capturing the GOP’s nomination at their convention in Tampa slated for this August. Even then, the could-be candidate will still have to go up against incumbent Barack Obama and, if recent polls are any indication, a win for Romney isn’t exactly guaranteed.

According to the latest polling from Rasmussen Tracking done over the weekend, a hypothetical match-up between Romney and Obama would go to the challenger, but only by a spread of three points. Polling released on Friday by Fox News also put Romney in the lead, but only by two points. Earlier last week, ABC News released a poll in conjunction with the Washington Post that pegged Obama as the winner by seven points.

“The campaign is now moving into its next phase with the formation of ‘Romney Victory’,” explains Stormont in his latest email, which he goes on to explain is the new name that the Republican National Committee and the Romney for President campaign are working under to bring in as many bucks for the candidate as they can before Election Day.

“The legal maximum that an individual can donate to Romney Victory is $75,800.The campaign is asking people who are able to make a $50,000 contribution to do so today and become a ‘Founding Member’ of Romney Victory,” adds Stormont. “These donors will be invited to a special retreat with Governor Romney in late June in California and will have preferred status at the first Presidential Inaugural retreat as well as yet to be determined access at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August.”

Is it presumptuous for Romney to plot an inaugural retreat when he has yet to take the Republican Party’s nod, let alone race (and win) an election against Obama? Probably. But that doesn’t mean supporters shouldn’t empty out their bank accounts.

For Romney fans not in the one-percent (they do exist, right?), don’t worry — ol’ Mitt hasn’t forgotten about you either. Stormont adds that the campaign is offering some other, less expensive packages for those that want to support Romney yet don’t want to jump into dropping 50-grand to go to a make-believe gala.

Stormont says that Governor Romney will be returning to Atlanta, Georgia this June, where he will participate in two fundraising events. “The first event will be a reception which will be 1K per person/2K per couple to attend and 10K per couple to get a photo with Governor Romney. 10K represents a maxed out couple, giving $2500 each to both the primary and general election.”

“Please let me know that you will be participating in this critical phase of the future of our country,” adds Stormont, “I would like to request that you take a moment and reply back to me as soon as possible as to whether you would like to serve on the Host Committee for the June 11th reception and/or if you are interested in participating in the private dinner on June 11th?”

“The future of our country is at stake,” concludes Stormont. And with $10,000 getting Romney pals a dinner and Polaroid with the contender, steak better be on the menu too.

    Good luck with going against the left-wing mass media and billionaire backers. :roll:

    AGAIN, IT’S NOT HOW MANY VOTES THERE ARE, IT’S THOSE WHO COUNT AND CONTROL THE VOTES. :(

    Most people don’t believe in electronic voting, polls, the press or internet ratings.
    They can be (and usually are) manipulated. :roll:

    For example when people rate the postings, the posting rating numbers never change, and the message is “Your vote saved.” – The actual vote tally should be shown right away. Even though it still can change any time later. :-x

    The media polls and ratings are only used to manipulate the way people think and believe, and they are rigged!!!! :roll:

      Conservatives rely heavily on small businesses (job creators), and small businesses are facing heavy taxes and regulations.

      As the old saying goes voting is one weapon, communists are very afraid of. :-D

      These commies :roll: often tell you, voting doesn’t change anything or
      There is no difference. It’s like voting the same way for both sides of the coin.

      Well, it’s up to voters to make your votes count.
      Left-wingers control the White House, the upper house (aka the Senate),

      And the right wingers (conservatives) control the lower house (aka Congress).

      So it will very hard for conservatives to make any major changes.That’s why voting is very important for this country.

      Governor Rick Perry has proven that Ron Paul is a HYPOCRITE and a LIAR when he revealed Ron Paul’s letter which Paul wrote in 1987.

      :( In the letter Paul said he never liked president Ronal Reagan or the Republican party …… Yet OLD PAUL STILL RETURNS every presidential election and RUNS AS A REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE. :roll: We all know that Paul has lost every single election and received less than 5% of the votes.

      :( With this kind of dangerous game, Ron Paul will takes votes away from the Republican candidate who can beat Obama, which is governor Mitt Romney in this election.*********************

      :( Following is Ron Paul’s letter:

      “As a lifelong Republican, it saddens me to have to write this letter. My parents believed in the Republican Party and its free enterprise philosophy, and that’s the way I was brought up. At age 21, in 1956, I cast my first vote for Ike and the entire Republican slate.

      Because of frustration with the direction in which the country was going, I became a political activist and ran for the U.S. Congress in 1974. Even with Watergate, my loyalty, optimism, and hope for the future were tied to the Republican Party and its message of free enterprise, limited government, and balanced budgets.

      Eventually I was elected to the U.S. Congress four times as a Republican. This permitted me a first-hand look at the interworkings of the U.S. Congress, seeing both the benefits and partisan frustrations that guide its shaky proceedings. I found that although representative government still exists, special interest control of the legislative process clearly presents a danger to our constitutional system of government.

      In 1976 I was impressed with Ronald Reagan’s program and was one of the four members of Congress who endorsed his candidacy. In 1980, unlike other Republican office holders in Texas, I again supported our President in his efforts.

      Since 1981, however, I have gradually and steadily grown weary of the Republican Party’s efforts to reduce the size of the federal government. Since then Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party have given us skyrocketing deficits, and astoundingly a doubled national debt. How is it that the party of balanced budgets, with control of the White House and Senate, accumulated red ink greater than all previous administrations put together? Tip O’Neill, although part of the problem, cannot alone be blamed.

      Tax revenues are up 59 percent since 1980. Because of our economic growth? No. During Carter’s four years, we had growth of 37.2 percent; Reagan’s five years have given us 30.7 percent. The new revenues are due to four giant Republican tax increases since 1981.

      All Republicans rightly chastised Carter for his $38 billion deficit. But they ignore or even defend deficits of $220 billion, as government spending has grown 10.4 percent per year since Reagan took office, while the federal payroll has zoomed by a quarter of a million bureaucrats.

      Despite the Supply-Sider-Keynesian claim that “deficits don’t matter,” the debt presents a grave threat to our country. Thanks to the President and Republican Party, we have lost the chance to reduce the deficit and the spending in a non-crisis fashion. Even worse, big government has been legitimized in a way the Democrats never could have accomplished. It was tragic to listen to Ronald Reagan on the 1986 campaign trail bragging about his high spending on farm subsidies, welfare, warfare, etc., in his futile effort to hold on to control of the Senate.

      Instead of cutting some of the immeasurable waste in the Department of Defense, it has gotten worse, with the inevitable result that we are less secure today. Reagan’s foreign aid expenditures exceed Eisenhower’s, Kennedy’s, Johnson’s, Nixon’s, Ford’s, and Carter’s put together. Foreign intervention has exploded since 1980. Only an end to military welfare for foreign governments plus a curtailment of our unconstitutional commitments abroad will enable us really to defend ourselves and solve our financial problems.

      Amidst the failure of the Gramm-Rudman gimmick, we hear the President and the Republican Party call for a balanced-budget amendment and a line-item veto. This is only a smokescreen. President Reagan, as governor of California, had a line-item veto and virtually never used it. As President he has failed to exercise his constitutional responsibility to veto spending. Instead, he has encouraged it.

      Monetary policy has been disastrous as well. The five Reagan appointees to the Federal Reserve Board have advocated even faster monetary inflation than Chairman Volcker, and this is the fourth straight year of double-digit increases. The chickens have yet to come home to roost, but they will, and America will suffer from a Reaganomics that is nothing but warmed-over Keynesianism.

      Candidate Reagan in 1980 correctly opposed draft registration. Yet when he had the chance to abolish it, he reneged, as he did on his pledge to abolish the Departments of Education and Energy, or to work against abortion.

      Under the guise of attacking drug use and money laundering, the Republican Administration has systematically attacked personal and financial privacy. The effect has been to victimize innocent Americans who wish to conduct their private lives without government snooping. (Should people really be put on a suspected drug dealer list because they transfer $3,000 at one time?) Reagan’s urine testing of Americans without probable cause is a clear violation of our civil liberties, as are his proposals for extensive “lie detector” tests.

      Under Reagan, the IRS has grown bigger, richer, more powerful, and more arrogant. In the words of the founders of our country, our government has “sent hither swarms” of tax gatherers “to harass our people and eat out their substance.” His officers jailed the innocent George Hansen, with the President refusing to pardon a great American whose only crime was to defend the Constitution. Reagan’s new tax “reform” gives even more power to the IRS. Far from making taxes fairer or simpler, it deceitfully raises more revenue for the government to waste.

      Knowing this administration’s record, I wasn’t surprised by its Libyan disinformation campaign, Israeli-Iranian arms-for-hostages swap, or illegal funding of the Contras. All this has contributed to my disenchantment with the Republican Party, and helped me make up my mind.

      I want to totally disassociate myself from the policies that have given us unprecedented deficits, massive monetary inflation, indiscriminate military spending, an irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy, zooming foreign aid, the exaltation of international banking, and the attack on our personal liberties and privacy.

      After years of trying to work through the Republican Party both in and out of government, I have reluctantly concluded that my efforts must be carried on outside the Republican Party. Republicans know that the Democratic agenda is dangerous to our political and economic health. Yet, in the past six years Republicans have expanded its worst aspects and called them our own. The Republican Party has not reduced the size of government. It has become big government’s best friend.

      If Ronald Reagan couldn’t or wouldn’t balance the budget, which Republican leader on the horizon can we possibly expect to do so? There is no credibility left for the Republican Party as a force to reduce the size of government. That is the message of the Reagan years.

      I conclude that one must look to other avenues if a successful effort is ever to be achieved in reversing America’s direction. I therefore resign my membership in the Republican Party and enclose my membership card.”

        Ron Paul, the only Republican presidential candidate actively campaigning against front-runner Governor Mitt Romney.

        Reuters “Candidate Ron Paul effectively ended his White House bid on Monday, May/14/2012. Instead, Paul’s campaign will concentrate on trying to add to its tally of delegates to the Republican National Convention in August by sending large groups of supporters to state conventions to elect themselves to delegate slots.”

        :( In other words, Paul told state officials not to vote for Romney, but vote for themselves to prevent Romney’s nomination. It looks like a tactic being used by the super rich that are trying to manipulate and screw-up the Republican presidential candidate selection process.

        As Yahoo News reported, “Paul’s wins didn’t necessarily move Paul any closer to winning his party’s nomination. Paul has not won any state nominating contests. So far, he has only 99 delegates while Romney has 949, according to Real Clear Politics. A candidate needs 1,144 to win the nomination.”

        :( Paul won’t quietly into the night, and as he said : “Paul’s statement said his campaign would explain details of its delegate strategy “in the coming days.”

        :roll: Without the media giving Paul attention every day, nobody would even know who is he.

    I used to support Romney, but that is only because I never looked deeper into him. I want the candidate who has the best chance of defeating Obama. Then I looked at the most recent polls:
    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/polls/221163-rasmussen-obama-and-romney-tied-nationally

    I listened to the media says is the best to beat obama. They say Romney, so voters like me will over look his true record and inability to defeat Obama.

    He supports the Patriot Act, the NDAA, and won’t actually balance the budget.

    He is also very unlikeable and has no broad appeal.

    Ron Paul on the other hand, polls best against Obama and has by far the best voting record. I used to bash him for his foreign policy, but it just makes sense. We waste 1 trillion dollars overseas and we destroy our currency paying for it. How does that make any sense? Why do we subsidize other countries and corporate farmers, when we don’t have the money to pay for all of this. This is crazy and clearly bad economic policy. We’re broke, enough is enough already, lets truly cut spending!

    The Fed is owned by 10 banks. The fed is not a “federal” entity. It is a private corporation. The 10 banks that own the shares of the FED banking corporation contribute to all the crooks in congress. These banks are contributing all the money to elect Romney.

    Our government is run by the 10 international banks which own the congress through contributions to get them elected.

    Romney represents Goldman Sachs which is one of the 10 banks. The 100 year Fed contract ends in 2012. You must help and sign the petition to not renew the FED.

    Thank you for reading this. Vote Ron Paul. The delegate Strategy does allow him to win. There is a strategy for this and it is working. Please google Ron Paul…a statesman and true leader.

    If we end the FED there will be no income tax. Ron Paul will do this. All the income tax does is pay the tax on the debt
