Fox News host Sean Hannity told Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday night that he sounded like an “Occupy Wall Street” protester.

Perry had earlier in the day asserted that both former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Bain Capital, the firm he founded, were “vultures” for preying on distressed companies.

“It almost sounds like Occupy Wall Street,” Hannity said. “It doesn’t sound like someone who is governing Texas as a conservative.”

“There is a real difference between venture capitalism and vulture capitalism,” Perry responded. “Venture capitalism we like. Vulture capitalism, no. And the fact of the matter is that he is going to have to face up to this at some time or another.”
