PARK CITY, Utah — If the majority of donors who attend this weekend’s gathering of hundreds of high dollar fundraisers go back home as fired up as Rodger Young, the Romney campaign will be in quite strong a financial position and the investment in time and effort for the event will be paid back many times over.

“I am going to bundle every penny I can bundle,” said Young, a donor at this weekend’s mixer for Romney donors, GOP stars, and Republican leaders.

Until this weekend, Young was merely a donor not a bundler, but that has now changed.

“I came here with the idea that we were all going to take on more financial responsibility and I am certainly prepared to do that for Gov. Romney and I think we can get this done,” Young told ABC News.

Hundreds of high dollar fundraisers turned out this weekend for a mixer for Romney campaign donors, GOP stars and Republican leaders, but among the faces at the retreat were other attendees who have the same goals of defeating Barack Obama, but whose roles in Republican politics lie in super PACs.

A man in a dark suit and purple pocket square was camped out in the lobby of the Chateaux at Silver Lake talking to what appeared to be lanyard-wearing donors. The man was Charlie Spies, the founder of the Mitt Romney-backing super PAC Restore Our Future.

He wasn’t attending any of the panels or discussions and didn’t even want to go into get a cup of coffee, but the lobby is really the place to be, with attendees walking to and from meetings or gathering to talk....

Do you really think our current dog-eating, skinny-azz, dictator will make better Supreme Court choices?

That "wise latina" is really pretty dumb, and Kagan looks like a bull dyke to me.

Even Ginsburg doesn't trust his choices or she would have retired.

And he will never repeal his own centerpiece.

Do you know how much time, effort and sacrifice is involved in raising significant amounts of money when you’re not a “plugged-in” businessman or celebrity? I’ve done it, and it’s no cake-walk.

I agree. Rice is soft mush.

In this increasingly corrupt, dangerous world, we need an administration full of bulldogs, not barely audible nannies.

No doubt Romney will go the nanny route.
