‘ED Show’ playbook: Thu., Oct. 4


President Obama fires back at Mitt Romney after the first presidential debate.

“Governor Romney may dance around his positions,” Obama told supporters in Denver today.  “But if you want to be president, you owe the American people the truth.”

Tonight, Ed welcomes Stephanie Cutter, Obama Campaign Deputy Campaign Manager,  to review last night’s performance and the way forward.

Then, Sam Stein, Huffington Post political editor, and E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist, look at Romney’s style versus the president’s substance.

President Obama says we can’t double down on the policies that created the Great Recession. Tonight, Ed welcomes David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author (“The Fine Print: How Big Companies Use ‘Plain English’ To Rob You Blind”), to examine Romney’s $5 trillion lie.

All of a sudden Mitt Romney is concerned for the middle-class.  James Hoffa, President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, reacts to Romney’s pandering to the middle class.

We’ll bring you the latest on Mitt Romney’s plan to fry Big Bird!

And in the Big Finish, Ohio is the key to victory for both candidates. Ed will ask state Sen. Nina Turner (D-OH) whether last night’s debate was a game changer for voters in her state.
