‘ED Show’ playbook: Thu., July 5


We’re back from the holiday with so much to talk about!

President Obama takes his “Betting on America” bus tour to battleground Ohio as the Romney campaign deals with new reports of offshore tax havens.

Tonight, former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH), an Obama 2012 campaign Co-Chair, has some tough words for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Researchers are predicting a rebound from last month’s disappointing job numbers. We’ll preview the June jobs report and what it means for the campaign with Steve Benen, Contributing Writer and Blogger with the Washington Monthly.

The right wing media us turns its sights against Mitt Romney and his confused “tax or penalty” campaign.  Sam Stein, Huffington Post political editor, has the latest.

Ann Romney says Barack Obama’s campaign strategy is to “kill“ her husband.  The Big Panel – Patricia Murphy, Editor of Citizen Jane Politics and Daily Beast contributor, Susan Del Percio, Republican Strategist and msnbc Contributor, Keli Goff, author of “The GQ Candidate” – weighs in on her questionable comments.

A shocking new report says Republican voter ID laws could disenfranchise three quarters of a million voters!

And in the Big Finish, comedian Chris Rock tweets about slavery on Independence Day and the right wing can’t stand it.  Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University, responds tonight.

Ed is taking a few days off, but the always excellent Michael Eric Dyson will be filling in.
