‘ED Show’ playbook: Fri., July 6


Another relatively weak jobs report and another victory lap for Mitt Romney.  But he forgets to mention how hard his buddies in Congress have worked to make this day possible.

Tonight, msnbc Political Analyst Richard Wolffe joins guest host Michael Eric Dyson to analyze the politics of obstruction and what today’s number means for President Obama.

Then, Washington Post columnist and msnbc Policy Analyst Ezra Klein looks at which candidate has the policy to create jobs now.

Meantime, President Obama hits Romney where it hurts on health care.  

Tonight’s Big Panel – Goldie Taylor, columnist for The Grio and Managing Editor of The Goldie Taylor Project, Jimmy Williams, former Democratic Senate Staffer and msnbc Contributor, and Jon Bramnick, New Jersey Assembly GOP Leader – weighs in on the president’s offensive move.


Pennsylvania’s Republican effort to disenfranchise three-quarters of a million voters is now headed to court.  The Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, will tell us how residents are fighting back.

Cookie gate is back in the news and a potential Romney running mate is caught getting a little hot under the collar.

And in the Big Finish, what is “the God particle” and why couldn’t American scientists find it?  Michael will ask Leonard Mlodinow, physicist at Cal-Tech in Pasadena, author (“Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior”).  

It’s going to another packed @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
