Rick Perry, on Fox News this afternoon, with some awfully tough language on Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital.
"Mitt Romney's going to have a hard time coming into South Carolina and making the people here think that he's anything other than just a rich Wall Streeter who took advantage of their businesses.
People lost their jobs, they lost their pensions, they lost a lot.
.... shutting down these businesses -- with the only real reason that most people can see -- was so that Bain Capital could profit and he could get richer.
That's not going to sell in South Carolina."
With Perry getting in on the Bash-Bain act, Newt Gingrich now has some cover for his own attacks.
But using this kind of rhetoric is still pretty dangerous for ostensibly conservative candidates.
