Perry Whining About Romney Being a Vulture...What is Wrong with Free Enterprise Rick?

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry asserted on Tuesday that both former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Bain Capital, the firm he founded, were "vultures" for preying on distressed companies.

During a town hall event in Fort Mill, S.C, the Texas governor amplified an attack on Romney that's being made by a super PAC which supports former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The Super PAC's film “When Mitt Romney Came to Town” accuses the Republican frontrunner of “looting” companies during his time as the head of Bain Capital.

"I will suggest they're just vultures," Perry told supporters, according to Politico. "They're vultures that are sitting out there on the tree limb, waiting for a company to get sick. And then they swoop in, they eat the carcass, they leave with that and they leave the skeleton."

Speaking to reporters after the event, Perry complained that "greedy people on Wall Street" were taking advantage of small companies, but added that the answer was not more regulation.
