He did speak for himself on this one, fishy.

From the article I linked to in my comment below:

Update, 4:45 p.m.:

Ron Paul issued a statement saying he declined to speak at CPAC due to a scheduling conflict.

In a statement provided to Whispers, Paul said that he did not turn down the invitation to speak because CPAC would not pay a speaker’s fee.

"While I have enjoyed speaking there in years past, I am unable to attend this year due to a previously scheduled engagement,” he said. Paul spokeswoman Stiles could not confirm whether Paul asked for his customary speakers fee to deliver an address to CPAC.
