I had no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about things -- you have enough vote -- -- hand that.
What is this company bank account all the jobs that they feel I'm sure he was worried he'd run out.
-- That was Texas governor Rick Perry.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney as Perry campaign in South Carolina against what he said was the pink -- love and Byron people love and Mitt Romney and this is power like live this hour from the campus of Saint Anselm College here in Manchester, New Hampshire.
And safety praise Juan Williams is with us still as he as he keeps a steady hand on the tiller -- power play.
Thank you for saying here want and we welcome now accordingly when -- He is the state director for Americans for prosperity.
And -- here in New Hampshire and -- Americans for prosperity favor prosperity.
We do -- okay that's good but you favor prosperity and a sort of free market.
Kind of conservative way right exactly right okay you you have it a flavor of prosperity that you prefer we like free market prosper yes okay so the question is this.
I'm watching a Republican primary process.
In which Mitt Romney.
A free market kind of guy is getting hammered him.
For being a free market capitalist kind of guy I thought the red team.
Was the capitalism pro capitalism team what's going well.
If you look here -- Hampshire Mitt Romney does have some support from very prominent conservatives in New Hampshire mostly senator Kelly a -- a very conservative senator yeah Tom Thompson whose father was the governor of New Hampshire well known tax advocate.
But if you look across the field annual doctor Paul is probably the candidate most resonates with the Tea Party movement on the fiscal issues the probably ask clearly this is.
His foreign policy is so alarming so concerning that there's just no real opportunity for him to be the nominee.
And then if you look at the rest of the field -- speaker Gingrich or governor -- governor Santorum us senator Santorum there are parts of each of those candidates that.
The Tea Party likes and embrace it right however you know I think -- -- we can do very well here in New Hampshire today.
-- very well South Carolina -- want to be the nominee.
Wire the other ones attacking him on firing people and Bain Capital this is this is something I'm I'm I'm struggling with -- guys.
I always thought that the Republicans were the ones who defended.
We're good term that the congress uses creative destruction.
That economies go up economies go down its failure is requisite.
For success look we what we believe American prosperity believes the government doesn't pick winners and losers right this is a capitalistic system where if you've got a good product.
-- surviving get a bad product you you don't divide male we don't need the Big Three anymore we donate GM you know Ford and and that Chrysler puts up the big -- -- -- -- one whichever one is the best right we're ending up next exactly whichever product you have is the best is with the people decide to free market decides.
If governor Romney's position when he was a sealed -- Was to go along fine companies to be successful and it was required frame -- now forecast to make the company's more profitable that's -- American capitalism is all -- and -- notion that.
We believe this is the.
-- related trying to -- -- a second because I think that we -- distorting his conversation the fact is it is a surprise Christmas thing that Republicans would be challenging.
Mitt Romney on free enterprise but.
If you listen to someone like.
What he says this -- no problem with well he has no problem with free enterprise.
But when you engage in a predatory type action where you buy companies you look for efficiencies and take money profit out.
And then when the company doesn't do well close it and push people out of work he sees that as a negative form of capitalism.
