‘ED Show’ playbook: Thur., June 14


President Obama and Mitt Romney go to battleground Ohio to deliver dueling epic speeches on the economy.  And the different visions of the presidential candidates could not have been more clear.

Sam Stein, Huffington Post political editor, will join guest host Michael Eric Dyson tonight to compare and contrast.

Republicans try to convince voters in swing states that President Obama’s plans aren’t working while at the same time, those states are benefiting the most from his economic policies.  Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist, looks into that.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Gov. Rick Scott’s voter purge isn’t targeting Latinos in the state, but the numbers tell a very different story.  Ari Berman, Contributing Writer for The Nation and Rolling Stone, will have story.

A new report says Sheldon Adelson may be willing to spend nine (yes, nine) figures to defeat President Obama. Ken Vogel, Chief Investigative Reporter for Politico, and Democratic Strategist Chris Kofinis, have the numbers.

The Obama campaign is reaching out to the black community with a new ad and the right wing is going crazy over it.

And in the Big Finish, Frederick Harris, Professor of Political Science at Columbia University and author (“The Price of the Ticket: Barack Obama and the Rise and Decline of Black Politics”), says America is still waiting for our first black president.  But Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University, says he’s already here. 

Michael will moderate that debate!
