Texas Gov. Rick Perry is losing and acting like he's got nothing to lose -- skewering fellow Republicans running for president as wimpy job creators and congressional Republicans who spent to much money long before before President Obama was elected.
"Obama has thrown gasoline on the fire," Perry said at the NBC News/Facebook debate on Sunday. "But the bonfire was burning well before Obama got there. It was policies and spending both from Wall Street and from the insiders in Washington, D.C., that got us in this problem."
When asked if current front-runner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, was electable, Perry said: "I look from here down to Rick Santorum, I see insiders. Individuals who been big spending Republicans in Washington, D.C." (Perry was exempting former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who stood to Santorum's right).
