Attendees at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for 2012 are not exactly ready to throw their heart and soul behind Mitt Romney if he wins the Republican nomination to face President Barack Obama in the Fall.
The CPAC is an annual gathering of the country's most ardent conservative political activists in Washington D.C. These are the people who have been rooting, praying, and working for the "Not Romneys" during the Republican primary season.
We went around with a video camera and asked a convenience sampling of attendees about Mitt Romney. Specifically, we told them that it was inevitable, Mitt Romney has the money, and he will be the nominee. Will you support a Mitt Romney candidacy against President Obama?
"I held my nose and voted for McCain, I guess I can hold my nose and vote for Romney if he's the only one left," one attendee said.
We dug deeper with a few interviewees to determine the depth of their support for a potential Romney nomination and subsequent campaign by asking if the attendee will place a yard sign in their yard, and further, if the attendee will donate money to a Romney campaign.
The priceless answer from one attendee was, "Mitt Romney doesn't need any money."
Mitt Romney addresses CPAC today (Feb. 10, 2012), and the mainstream media is heralding the event as an opportunity for Romney to establish conservative bonafides. This video provides a casual glimpse in the luke warm reception that Romney will probably receive here. The general consensus is that, when considering the only other option being Obama, these folks will support Romney. But they aren't excited about that prospect. See the video above.
