Rick Perry Targets Mitt Romney, Defines "Vulture Capitalism"
After bypassing the New Hampshire primary last night, GOP candidate Rick Perry joined Fox and Friends to discuss his strategy in targeting Bain Capital, the former company of GOP contender Mitt Romney.
Perry spoke about spending time in Gaffney, S.C., a town he claims is home to a company that Bain Capital "had gone in and basically picked the flesh off the carcass," resulting in 150 people losing their jobs.
The metaphor is in reference to Perry's statement that Romney is a "vulture capitalist" instead of a venture capitalist.
"There's a real difference between venture capitalism and vulture capitalism," he said. "I don't believe that capitalism is making a buck under any circumstances. Look what happened between Washington D.C. and Wall Street over the last few years: $7.7 trillion were transferred from our Federal accounts into Wall Street. That's why Americans are upset."
