Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry Thursday responded to criticism from people like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Karl Rove by attacking the city that he wants to make his new home.

"With all due respect to anybody that's out there either directly or indirectly criticizing me because I speak plainly, I call it like I see it," Perry told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

"Look, I am not an establishment figure, never have been and frankly I don’t want to be. I dislike Washington; I think it’s a seedy place."

He continued: "Our country is in trouble and I don't have the privilege to sit on the sideline and watch our country be destroyed economically by a president who has been conducting an experiment on the American economy for the last two and half years. My wife told it like it was when she looked me in the eye and said listen, you have to do your duty. And that's what I'm doing"
