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.

"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."

earlier i asked, "is this a normal practice, and i've just never heard of it before?"

well, even cursory searches show that it IS a normal practice, and i've just never noticed it before.

i guess i don't pay enough attention to fundraising. :)

He's really ruining his cred by the constant repetition. Oh wait. He had no cred to begin with. Never mind.

They could be scared of more scenes like at the Tampa debate where the audience chanted to let people without health insurance die, etc.

Especially now, who knows what homophobic slurs they might voice behind closed doors.

Can't let that out on YouTube, now can they?
