Maybe Romney wanted to avoid what happened with these teabaggers recently:
"In 2010, many freshmen Republicans were swept into Congress on the promise of doing things differently.
"But fast-forward to 2012, and the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Fla. -- an exclusive seaside resort and home to 54 holes of championship golf and a private marina full of luxury yachts.

Rep. Cory Gardner, in yellow, joined a select group of Republican freshmen, big campaign donors, lobbyists and others at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Fla., 2012.
"That's where we caught up with a select group of Republican freshmen, engaged in business as usual. But they didn't come alone. They invited big campaign donors and lobbyists to join them - for a price. And we secretly sent our cameras along for a unique inside look at their first joint fundraiser, where special interests got the kind of access ordinary Americans can only dream of: on the golf course; over drinks at the resort bar; at a private beach lagoon."
