In South Carolina -- the Republican primary takes place next week.
Mitt Romney is barely ahead of Newt Gingrich in that primary race voting as a week from tomorrow by the -- Which why is Gingrich closing the gap all his attacks on Romney's Bain Capital record walking.
Joining us now is average and tell us co host all the five on the Fox News Channel.
Andrea I'm sitting back and uncommon upset it -- -- me.
When one Republican viciously attacks -- -- on the grounds that you -- a capitalist yet what's gone.
-- -- I don't mind that there attacking each other in a primary this is what they do but you're right they're attacking each other on a fundamental.
Republican conservative principle of free market capitalism.
It's bizarre it's actually really bizarre.
I want Newt Gingrich -- this though before he did it because.
If if he actually is able to pull ahead in the state like South Carolina.
Painting Mitt Romney -- -- capitalist what's Mitt Romney gonna do in states that aren't.
So conservative if he gets the nomination I still think Romney has a good chance of pulling this out squeaking this out.
Newt Gingrich is not gonna have the money to compete in Florida I think Romney is the only one that can actually do that and sustain I think these other conservative candidates will split the vote.
But this is this is serious I also wonder at what Newt Gingrich acting so schizophrenic first he says is gonna run a positive campaign that he's gonna run -- negative campaign.
Then he's hitting him with these negative -- now he says he crossed the line could -- yeah.
It could it be that he's a nasty -- And he was really annoyed that the Romney went after him with negative -- Iowa he's really annoyed about that and that -- get -- -- own back even if it costs -- -- run for the presidency yet.
He's the one man super -- right forget that so when animals attack when super -- attack because he's got money behind -- and they're pumping it into South Carolina.
I -- tensions -- to think that people -- -- like -- gotten get a yes -- happened like somebody handed it back it's backfiring and Monica you probably didn't want any in the -- and his mini surge going on in South Carolina really is an -- -- there's a reason why Newt Gingrich has slipped in the polls announced because he's an erratic -- have an -- candidate means an erratic presidency and that's one thing that we do not need.
You know what story you're you're right look.
I think part of this is a big reaction to the fact that he was hit he was pummeled in Iowa New Hampshire by negative ads.
But Mitt Romney and Ron Paul and so he's reacting but there's a way to react without attacking a core conservative principle which is free market economics I.
I think he gave them a gift.
I know a lot of conservative Republicans.
That we're very Leary on Mitt Romney if I'm Ronnie I'm gonna be a 110%.
On apologetic about my background.
My -- the daily news today says don't be bashful Mitt explained.
That Bain but that's a lot about the uncertainty yeah he hasn't ice -- -- -- defends himself I don't.
I was got a -- -- -- -- I haven't seen it's it just came out this morning I'm not real to get hold of -- yet he's got a new ad Allen's name which he explains what he did at Bain and justifies what he -- -- -- -- -- counterattack has started out.
It's got to be more simple I saw some footage of a -- trying to explain it.
It's got to be that he got into the business to grow jobs and also what he needs to do it in the context of this broader campaign assuming he's the nominee who does not get lost in the -- of -- and -- -- But -- yeah back and paid a bigger moral case for free marketing our outlook let when he when he gambles with money it's his money not taxpayer money like president -- thirty seconds left -- -- -- conservative -- is on the set with -- I wanna ask you both the same question.
-- -- -- -- A little bit yes -- and I think it's ridiculous I'm disappointed because he's Smart enough to know better exactly.
OK I think -- by the way -- quickly.
If you look in 1994.
The ads that Kennedy took out against Romney when they were running in Massachusetts.
The same as president Obama's gonna take if I were Mitt Romney I find those unemployed Solyndra employees and -- start putting -- -- campaign ads Amar.
Does that make me live.
