At last night governor Mitt Romney scored an impressive victory in New Hampshire in their primary but tonight the campaign rages on as the candidates now head to the next battleground.
-- this time -- South Carolina and as the rest of the field tries to catch up to the front runner.
While some candidates are targeting governor Romney's business background and his time as the head of Bain Capital.
And that includes Texas governor Rick Perry who led this to say last night.
On our special edition of Hannity.
There's a real difference between ventured.
And and the fact of the matter is that he's gonna have to face up to this at some -- another and South Carolina is get a place to draw that line in the sand -- any.
And meanwhile today former house speaker Newt Gingrich backed off his criticism of Romney's time in -- and blame president Obama's class warfare rhetoric.
For blurring the lines of this debate however the speaker did call into question the governor's conservative credentials here's what he said.
I believe it is -- somebody try to debate Obama.
Who isn't sure what they believe isn't sure what their record is and isn't sure how to articulate it is just going to be.
What we've done in the past you've seen when we nominate moderates they can't debate.
They can't explain it because they understand they're trying to -- what is -- -- -- -- And as for governor -- may well he doesn't seem at all surprised that he is the focus on the field -- this.
I believe in free enterprise and freedom and opportunity.
And I frankly think members of my own party.
Who may be desperate -- their campaigns tried to attack free enterprise.
Are making an enormous mistake for themselves and for the country we have differences on policy -- you know that's a valid for us to discuss but.
These attacks from the speaker and from Rick Perry -- you know I expect that come.
And joining me now with analysis of last night's results and a preview of the battle for South Carolina the former governor of the great state of Alaska Fox News contributor Sarah Palin governor welcome back.
Thank you so much on our let's start let's start is before we get into the specifics of what's going on now.
Is it too much in fighting too much attacking or is it healthy India at the end is the vetting of the candidates make them stronger and prepare them.
For a billion dollar Obama barrage.
They need to that one another we're not gonna get the mainstream media to.
I help betting on the other side of the -- so will vet within our own party and will allow that.
That most prepared candidate to -- to the top so its top that's rough and tumble but this is the way that debt.
You you -- it here claims I'm absolutely.
That are being made today you hear backed up in facts and information supporting the claim safer job creation that's been the talk the last couple -- days claims made in these campaigns.
And that's sometimes it gets rough and tumble as you try to hold these candidates accountable for what their claim me I know has backed off his criticism of being -- But I had a Governor Perry on the program last night.
He doubled down the term vulture capitalist taking advantage of these companies and their hour of need.
You know just to turn a quick profit etc.
What do you think of those attacks in particular is that where it is if you're running a campaign.
Would that be your line against governor Romney are -- making a mistake -- -- attacking the fundamentals of conservatism.
Which is we support capitalism.
I don't agree with attacks on free market capitalism at all but I don't believe that.
That's really what is at the heart of governor Perry's criticism.
Romney and his time at Bain this isn't about a politician in the making huge profits in the private sector.
Think what governor periods getting -- is that governor Romney.
Has claimed to have created a 100000 jobs had -- and we can you know people are wanting to know.
Is there proof of that claim and was that US jobs created for -- United States citizens you know -- 100000 jobs and and I believe that that's what governor periods -- -- is.
You know their own up to the claims that are being made and -- -- that's negative campaigning that's fair to get a candidate.
To be held accountable to what's being claimed especially when it comes to job creation because so many of us are so concerned about what's going on.
On main street as well as Wall Street -- let me.
