‘ED Show’ playbook: Tue., Sep. 18

Updated

49 days until the election and America is talking about Mitt Romney’s 47 percent.

We’ll have more of the shocking undercover tape and President Obama weighs in for the first time.  Tonight, Ed welcomes Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to look at the real Mitt Romney.

Then, Mother Jones releases the full video and it just gets worse for the Republican presidential nominee.  Democratic strategist Bob Shrum and Eugene Robinson, msnbc Analyst and Associate Editor and Pulitzer Prize winning Columnist for the Washington Post, discuss the political disaster.

Who are the 47 percent of American “victims” that Romney is talking about?  Ed will ask David Cay Johnston, columnist for Reuters, Pulitzer Prize-winner and author of “Perfectly Legal” and “Free Lunch.”

Forget leading from behind, Mitt Romney doesn’t want to lead at all when it comes to Middle East peace. msnbc Political Analyst Richard Wolffe looks at the other disaster from the Romney tapes.

And Romney’s comments are getting a mixed reaction from the right-wing, while some try to make a false equivalency to President Obama’s caught-on-tape comments in 2008.  Michelle Goldberg, Senior contributing writer, Newsweek & The Daily Beast NY, will weigh in on that. 

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