PARK CITY, Utah The Republican Party is trying hard to move on from Mitt Romney. His donors are another story.
Three potential presidential candidates grasped at the Republican Partys financial torch Friday by auditioning before an audience of Romneys most influential fundraisers and GOP officials. After huddling with the former nominee in a dark lodge Thursday night, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Romney running mate Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul woke up early to hobnob with donors and deliver their pitches at Romneys Experts and Enthusiasts conference.
All three Republicans had unique challenges in charming the moneyed and influential crowd packed into a ballroom here.
Christie, for one, had upset many of the donors loyal to Romney with his effusive praise of President Obamas response to Hurricane Sandy in the closing days of the 2012 presidential race.

ANY Big Donor is going to be AUDITED by the IRS!! THAT’S THE BIG SCANDAL!!! EVERY BIG DONOR HAS BEEN AUDITED!!!

The Romney donors LIKE weak candidates. There’s a reason for that. It’s not a good reason.
Still, that's less than 1/3 the average chance for someone at the bottom of the income scale who claims EITC ~ they have a 30% chance of being audited!
EVERY BIG DONOR HAS BEEN AUDITED!!!
Romney WORKS WITH SOROS and THREW two election to Obama;
One by attacking Gov. Palin and the second by being
a worthless, RomneyCARE-creating PHONEY.
What could go wrong with him now running the GOP?
Notice who is NOT cuddling up to him?
If Sarah wasn’t there, who cares
