>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

SO, YOU KNOW, SUMMER IS HERE.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I LIKE TO DO.

GET A FEW FRIENDS OVER.

A COUPLE OF BEERL.

HAVE A LITTLE BARBECUE AND MAKE THEM GIVE ME MONEY.

>> MITT ROMNEY IS IN PARK CITY,

UTAH TONIGHT HOSTING A RETREAT FOR A SELECT GROUP OF WEALTHY REPUBLICAN DONORS.

>> INCLUDED ON THE LIST ROMNEY'S BUNDLERS, INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE

RAISED ABOUT $250,000 EACH.

>> Jon: WHOA!

THAT IS THE JAUNTY EXUBERANCE OF A GENTLEMAN WHO HAS FOLKS GIVING HIM $250,000.

I MEAN, $250,000.

THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY.

HE'S INVITING THEM ALL TO LIKE A PARTY.

THERE HAVE TO BE AT LEAST 15 OR 20 PEOPLE ON THAT LIST.

>> 700 REPUBLICAN HEAVY HITTERS HAVE JOINED MITT ROMNEY IN PARK CITY UTAH THIS WEEKEND.

>> Jon: 700.

I HOPE THEY'RE JET POOLING.

WOW.

HOW DO YOU ENTERTAIN THAT MANY HIGH ROLLERS?

WELL, THE ANSWER IS WITH A PRIVATE SHOW OF OLYMPIC SKI JUMPERS HURDLING OFF RAMPS AND

DOING FLIPS INTO A GIANT SWIMMING POOL.

ARE WE SURE THEY WERE OLYMPIC SKI JUMPERS AND NOT JUST POOR PEOPLE BEING THROWN OFF A MOUNTAIN?

BECAUSE A RETREAT LIKE THIS, IT COULD GET REAL HUNGER GAMESY REAL FAST.

YOU KNOW, THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS UTAH HO-DOWN: SCHEDULING.

BECAUSE THIS WEEKEND NOT ONLY DID THE REPUBLICAN JEWISH COALITION HOLD ITS BEVERLY HILLS

SUMMER BASH -- OH, IT'S DRAFTY IN HERE -- THERE'S A GROUP WHOSE

BOARD INCLUDED SHELDON WHO SAID HE COULD GIVE $120 MILLION TO ROMNEY.

>> THERE'S ANOTHER CLOSED-DOOR MEETING IN SAN DIEGO HELD BY TO CONSERVATIVE SUPER DONORS

BILLIONAIRES CHARLES AND DAVID COKE.

THEY RUN THE POLITICAL ACTION GROUP AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY AND HAVE PLEDGED TO RAISE $400

MILLION TO HELP PUT ROMNEY IN THE WHITE HOUSE

>> Jon: A SAN DIEGO CONVENTION FOR BILLIONAIRE CONSERVATIVES, A CON-CON.

THAT'S JUST ONE WEEKEND OF REPUBLICAN FUND RAISING.

I HAVE TO TELL YOU, LOOKING PRETTY ROUGH FOR THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN.

I HOPE HE'S GOT A SECRET WEAPON

>> ON THE OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN WEBSITE BARACK OBAMA DOT-COM THEY SUGGEST, HEY, IF YOU'RE

GETTING MARRIED, WE HAVE AN IDEA.

IN LIEU OF PRESENTS, JUST ASK YOUR GUESTS TO GIVE A CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION.

>> Jon: YOU'RE [BLEEP].

I THINK I SEE WHY THE PRESIDENT CHANGED HIS VIEW ON GAY MARRIAGE.

HE NEEDS THE WEDDING
