'ED Show' playbook: Wed., May 16

Mitt Romney and the Republicans say there’s no such thing as income inequality, President Obama is killing jobs and Democrats suffering from “envy.”  But Vice President Joe Biden is really letting them have it!

Ed will have that tonight, plus he’ll debunk Romney’s bogus “prairie fire” theories about spending the debt with help from Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) and this telling chart:  

New numbers show independents want the president to crack down on big banks. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will discuss the regulations we need to prevent another disaster. 

House Speaker John Boehner tees up another debt ceiling showdown.  And another establishment candidate falls victim to the Tea Party.  Howard Fineman, NBC News Political Analyst and Editorial Director of the Huffington Post Media Group, looks at the rough road ahead for Republican leaders.

President Obama comes out in support of marriage equality, and now some in the African-Amerian community are at odds with his position.  Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown university and author (“Can You Hear Me Now?”), and Sofia Nelson, Contributor for The Grio and award winning author (“Black Woman Redefined: Dispelling Myths and Discovering Fulfillment in the Age of Michelle Obama”), will join Ed to debate the issue.

And in the Big Finish, Gov. Dan Malloy (D-CT) and  Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, will tell us how Connecticut put an end to the Republican war on public education.  

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