‘ED Show’ playbook: Thurs., May 17


Right-wingers are losing on the issues, so they’re once again resorting to the race card to attack President Obama.

Tonight, an ugly plan by a Republican PAC to (once again) use The Rev. Jeremiah Wright to blow the winds of racial fear and smears towards President Obama is exposed by The New York Times.

And Mitt Romney doesn’t remember contributing to the climate of racism that simmers below the surface in the Republican Party.

Ben LaBolt, Obama 2012 National Press Secretary, will respond to the latest developments.  And, Sam Stein, Huffington Post political editor, and Richard Wolffe, msnbc Political Analyst, will weigh in on the GOP’s desperate tactics.

Nobel Prize winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman says we can end our economic crisis now.  But Romney is not going to like what he has to say to Ed tonight.

Problems are piling up for J.P. Morgan and Romney thinks it’s no big deal.  Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has some harsh words for the bank on tonight’s show.

Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin is leaving the U.S. behind to avoid paying millions in taxes. Now some lawmakers are trying to keep him from setting foot on American soil ever again.

And in the Big Finish, Karl Rove weighs in on the Wisconsin recall, while Gov. Scott Walker cooks the books on his jobs numbers. Walker’s Democratic challenger, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, will respond.

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