Heh. Months ago, people were posting “Where’s Willard” photos and on-scene reports of Mitt Romney sightings. Now, many can see him all at the same time. Mitt Romney is reportedly set to speak at CPAC next month.

Um, really? –> Romney to Speak at…

SCOOP: Romney to speak at CPAC…

— Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO) February 20, 2013

Some Twitter users aren’t thrilled by the news.

Ugh, Mitt Romney is speaking at #CPAC? Thanks, Obama.

Mitt Romney to speak at CPAC — is he going to apologize to conservatives?

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) February 20, 2013

My suggestion to Mitt Romney: if you want to contribute to the GOP going forward, write a check.

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) February 20, 2013

Sorry, but Mitt Romney is not a wise choice for a speaker at CPAC.

GOP: Time to modernize and shake things up.CPAC 2013: Mitt Romney!

I hope Mitt’ CPAC speech include a full throated defense Romney/ObamaCare and he endorses Rubio’s amnesty plan. #MIttUnplugged

These fools might as well invite Obama… CPAC mattered in 2009. In 2013, just another tax-exempt DC institution

Harsh! On the flip-side:

Don’t like Romney at #CPAC? Here are some options: 1) Don’t listen to him 2) Don’t go to CPAC or 3) Put on a conference & don’t invite him.

Booing Romney at #CPAC after having voted for him (especially in the primary) is pretty ridiculous.

— Joel Palmer (@PoliticalLogic) February 20, 2013

.@mittromney 2 speak at CPAC:…. Could be either a gracious thank you or a riveting post-mortem. The latter, I hope

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) February 20, 2013

Complaining about Romney at CPAC? Meh. I guess being conservative isn’t enough for, um, conservatives. Stop complaining and do something.

— Jake (@UCCowboy) February 20, 2013

Don’t see benefit of Romney speaking at CPAC, but he’s a good man and would have made a good Prez, so don’t really get cheap shots either.

— AG (@AG_Conservative) February 20, 2013

You got to hand it to ACU. If nothing else, the Romney returns narrative will lead to great press coverage for CPAC.

— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) February 20, 2013

I know the 1st impulse is to mock, but Romney @ CPAC could be a pretty impt moment – will help define what role he will play in GOP, if any.

— Addisu Demissie (@ASDem) February 20, 2013

Still, mocking is something on which all can agree! Hit it, Twitter.

Prediction:Romney will get booed during his CPAC speech but Stu Stevens will latter claim “the speech hit all of our numbers”

Romney to CPAC: “I would have won if only I’d made Ted Nugent my running mate.”

— Matt Parker (@mattparkerfl) February 20, 2013

I’m hoping for his Bearded Al Gore phase RT @robertcostanro: SCOOP: Romney to speak at CPAC…

— Kevin W. Glass (@KevinWGlass) February 20, 2013

Romney speaking at #cpac is like me speaking at my ex-wife’s wedding.

— Jason Stanford (@JasStanford) February 20, 2013

Ok @cpacnews we all fell for the “Romney to speak at CPAC” thing. Now you can admit we’ve been punked.

— DrewM (@DrewMTips) February 20, 2013

I hope Mitt Romney grew an Al Gore style beard. That would be worth seeing.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) February 20, 2013

We need to have a panel with Romney, Stu Stevens & Karl Rove. Have these guys tell us what everyone else did wrong to force them to lose.

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) February 20, 2013

A hashtag enters the mix.

“Hi folks, I’m Mitt Romney and I’d like to talk to you about a reverse mortgage from AAG.” #RomneyCPACexcerpts

— Will Storey (@wbstorey) February 20, 2013

You’ve never had a keynote who wanted to do this less than me. #RomneyCPACexcerpts

— Pundit Review (@PunditReview) February 20, 2013

Heh. And some advice for attendees.

For those of you attending #CPAC2013, applaud Romney for his efforts, but don’t let nostalgia prevent you from losing sight of the future.
