Romney will have to separate himself from the Barclays scandal, as the ninth-largest sponsor to his campaign has been faced with a $450 million corruption fine.

David Corn joined Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson and political analyst Richard Wolffe on MSBNC's "Martin Bashir" to discuss how the Barclays interest-fixing scandal is hurting the Romney campaign. Barclays CEO Bob Diamond was set to host a fundraiser for Romney in London, before the bank was slapped with a $450 million fine and he was forced to resign.

They then discussed how the GOP message machine is misfiring on health care—and how even popular conservative pundits are complaining about Republicans as a result.
