‘ED Show’ playbook: Mon., Oct. 15

Updated

On the night before the second presidential debate, the Obama campaign is fired up and ready to go while Mitt Romney prepares to keep the lies rolling.

Tonight, Ed welcomes msnbc Political Analyst Richard Wolffe on the expectations for the president going into the debate and former Governor Ted Strickland (D-OH) on the new lie Mitt Romney is cooking up.

Paul Ryan is getting some heat for his Ohio soup kitchen photo-op.  The president of the charity now says the candidate didn’t have permission to be there and didn’t exactly pitch in and help out.

E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist will join Ed to discuss that and much more.

Mitt Romney lied about shipping jobs to China, and the people of Freeport, Illinois, are living proof.  Workers at Bain-owned Sensata are about to lose their jobs, but they’re not going down without a fight.  Tonight, you’ll meet one of them: Mary Jo Kerr.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown knocks it out of the park in his debate against Josh Mandel. We’ll have the highlights.

And in the Big Finish, the stakes are high for President Obama in tomorrow night’s debate.  Howard Fineman, NBC News Political Analyst and Editorial Director of the Huffington Post Media Group, and Michelle Goldberg, Senior contributing writer, Newsweek & The Daily Beast NY, join Ed for a debate preview.

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