    ABC just obtain a leaked document that the details the guest-list and program for Mitt’s highly secretive retreat in Utah this weekend. This is how they described the event:


    Romney’s Great Utah Adventure: The Guest List and Schedule Leaks Out
    “ABC News has obtained access to parts of the schedule for the three-day retreat with Mitt Romney in Park City, Utah, this weekend. If you’re massively wealthy and favor Romney over Obama, or if there’s a possibility you might be No. 2 on the Republican ticket, or if you fancy being considered for the veep spot, this fancy resort town nestled in the Deer Valley is the place to be.”

    I cut through the noise to give you a taste of his guest-list:
    1. James A. Baker III
    2. Former Minnesota Senator Norman Coleman
    3. Tennessee senator Bob Corker
    4. Weekly Standard editor and co-founder Bill Kristol,
    5. Former Utah governor Mike Leavitt.
    6. John McCain
    7. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
    8. CEO of Hewlett Packard Meg Whitman
    9. Billionaire financier Ken Langone,
    10. Rep. Paul Ryan
    11. Sen. John Thune.
    12. GOP attorney Ben Ginsberg
    13. Weekly Standard and Fox contributor Fred Barnes
    14. GOP strategist Mary Matalin
    15. Condoleezza Rice
    16. Ann Romney
    17. Former Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill
    18. Jeb Bush
    19. Rob Portman
    20. Bob McDonnell
    21. Tim Pawlenty
    22. Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu
    23. Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets

    This is quite a little party he has going on. The most newsworthy issue I see is in this paragraph:
    “Then, “Media insight” will feature Romney counsel and longtime GOP attorney Ben Ginsberg; Fred Barnes and Kristol, editors and co-founders of The Weekly Standard; GOP strategist Mary Matalin; and Bush strategist and American Crossroads founder, Karl Rove."
    Karl Rove is developing media strategies on behalf of American Crossroads and the Romney campaign?
    Think about this for a second...

    Karl Rove has been running millions of third party ads against Obama. Romney claims he has no control, knowledge or involvement with his group but he develops a panel with:

    1. The Romney Campaign
    2. The Founder of American Crossroad
    3. Two Employees from the Weekly Standard
    4. Three Employees from Fox News
    5. One employee from CNN

    ...to work on a media strategy?

    What?

    Seriously?

    We need to make him eat this!!!

    Sounds like quite an A-List shin-dig to me. Surely Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman and Sen Marco Rubio will be there too. Interesting that Conde Rice is yet again in the mix. ROMNEY / RICE 2012?
