Joining me now with reaction to tonight's results.
From South Carolina is presidential candidate the governor of the great state of Texas Rick Perry is back with -- governor welcome -- -- Don thank you it's -- to be you -- Our governor I saw -- press release and we just heard from Newt Gingrich and senator Santorum men in your press release she said.
Tonight's results here in New Hampshire show that there is a race for a conservative.
Alternative to Mitt Romney remains wide open it's interesting that all three of you now are saying the same thing is.
Is there a chance that you kind of split that.
Conservative vote they -- all be appealing for tonight.
Well I think.
That the campaign that we put together here in South Carolina is is really strong I get the guest speaker of the house Bobby Harrell has endorsed us -- Mel by any.
Some real serious conservatives.
And that's a message that's gonna resonate with the people of South Carolina these are folks to get it from the standpoint of we've got to have a real conservative and individual who's got a track record of creating jobs.
-- -- by any makes a powerful.
Presentation -- when he talks about he's look he knows all these candidates he looked at all the candidates and there's only one that's got the record of job creation.
Lot of people talk about what they're gonna do I've done it in the stated -- by creating a million jobs.
And that is a story that really resonates here and the palmetto state particularly when you look at.
The assault that they're under by this administration whether it's the do it Justice Department going after their voter ID law there immigration law and then of course the Boeing story.
And Texas being a right to work state nuts.
Working every day to push back on this administration.
Those are stories that really resonate with the palmetto -- voter.
But -- look let me ask you governor because I've been following his -- is as you've been going around South Carolina.
You are talking about the success of of Texas you are making comparisons about the Obama economy.
But you've also had some very harsh words about about governor Mitt Romney who's now has won Iowa and New Hampshire he said.
Talking about his days of Bain Capital.
Bain Capital compared companies like that they leave the carcasses behind.
-- is a -- capital company they walked in the South Carolina company like Gaffney they pick the bones clean of those people lost their jobs in the same mill.
He say rather than restructure jobs they're trying to make money.
-- get thrown out the door they make as much money as they can in no hurry.
You know when I hear that it's so it almost sounds like -- Occupy Wall Street it doesn't sound like somebody that that it is governing the state of Texas has a conservative.
-- there's a real difference between venture capitalism.
And vulture capitalism venture capitalism we like vulture capitalism note.
And and the fact of the matter is that he's gonna have to face up to this that some time and other.
And South Carolina is get a place to draw that line in the sand as -- because those people in Gaffney South Carolina understand.
What happened to that.
Photo album company.
The folks in Georgetown South Carolina understand the jobs that were lost.
And that bank apple took 20000000 and 65 million dollars respectively from each of those deals and walked away from it.
That's not what we're looking for the president United States were looking for someone that knows how to build jobs create jobs and that's what I've done in the state of Texas so.
There's no use trying to Paper this over that is a problem permit he's gonna have to face -- -- he's saying that is what he said specifically that they're not ethical he said specifically your peers saying that Mitt Romney governor Romney is a vulture capitalists that governor Romney is unethical.
But I'm saying is that the way that they operated bank capital with those two particular companies and those two South Carolina cities.
It I think was irresponsible so you know the truth is the -- shot and there's no use this trying to shy away from if we think for a minute.
-- Barack Obama is not gonna attack this and talk about as we -- we'll get it out in the open and discuss it right now and find out is this.
The type of but conservative that we want represented knots at the top of the ticket I happen to think that.
South Carolina voters want someone who has.
Serve this country in the military let me ask itself.
But because -- we know whoever gets this nomination is gonna be attacked is going to be a billion dollar campaign.
Certainly there -- areas legitimate areas of disagreement you can have what governor Romney.
Is -- -- -- positions on guns and abortion or Romney care I think those are all legitimate debate here but there also is.
I just think from as a conservative.
To say that those people that are willing to invest their money for companies that have either been mismanaged -- the headed for bankruptcy.
And they command and trying get him profitable again and -- say they're vultures and their unethical.
I mean that's about a severe charges you can make and frankly you're right it is one that.
I would expect from Barack Obama says Republicans want dirty air and dirty water.
Well the fact is that folks and Gaffney South Carolina and -- down South Carolina.
Agree with that.
And I happen to think that if they were gonna be real venture capitalist they would come in and help clean up those companies save those jobs.
Rather than -- and and and -- their bound plane which isn't exactly what I think they did.
And then walk away from home with huge amounts of profit so if those problems that have been put back into those companies my instinct is that still be people in a lawyer -- just say governor Romney did a good job have -- -- let -- Mean with say staples horror of some of their success stories where they did invest their money.
And many jobs were created would you say in other -- ventures that they were successful.
Sure there -- there are places where they were successful but these are the places where they came in and really destroy these people's lives and when you walk into those two communities and you talk to the people here.
They were use.
-- feel very used and he's gonna have to -- that when he comes to South Carolina so.
That now you know that this that this campaign covers a lot of ground.
And it's it's about those flip flops that that -- made on whether it's guns or whether it's on -- abortion whether it's on traditional marriage whether it's on global warming.
He's gonna have to come to the south and talk to people who have very strong opinions about all of those.
This venture capital vs vulture capitalism is just while.
-- within a -- watch this very closely and we'll see you next Monday the Fox News Channel debate.
From South Carolina governor we'll see there we regularly and be like John.
Guys coming up our coverage of the New Hampshire primary.
