Howard Fineman Discusses Mitt Romney's Debate Skills On 'Hardball' (VIDEO)

Howard Fineman appeared Tuesday on MSNBC's 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' to discuss Mitt Romney's performance at Monday night's GOP presidential debate.

"Romney rocked," said Fineman. "It's amazing the way things have shifted around, a couple weeks ago Romney was being widely derided as a non-starter."

Recalling past successes of the Romney campaign, Fineman said,"The best punch I've seen so far out of this crew is the one that Romney said when he announced. He said that if you're gonna create jobs in the private sector, it's really better if you actually had one yourself. And that got a really good response."
