'Ed Show' playbook: Fri., Apr. 27

House Speaker John Boehner cries up a storm about the fight over student loan interest rates.  And GOP presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney tells college students to just ask mommy and daddy to pick up the tab.

Tonight, Ed proves both men have it wrong, with Van Jones, President and Co-Founder of the Rebuild the Dream, and MSNBC Political Analyst Richard Wolffe.

The Obama campaign is hammering Romney on national security.  Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff at the State Department during Gen. Colin Powell's term and currently the Pamela Harriman Visiting Professor at the College of William & Mary, will help Ed set Romney straight.

We've had 33 months of consecutive economic growth but Romney says President Obama is more interested in slow jamming the newsRobert Reich, former U.S. Labor Secretary, UC Berkeley Professor, will respond to that.

Gov. Scott Walker is getting more out of state help in his recall election fight.  Fellow radical, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is heading to Wisconsin to do some campaigning.  Mahlon Mitchell, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, running for Lt. Gov. of Wisconsin, has the latest.

Senator John McCain ripped the Democrats for claiming there is a war on women.  You won’t believe what President Obama said about that a few minutes ago.

And tomorrow is the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.  Tonight, Ed (who is live from Washington) looks back on some of its greatest hits, including president's take-down of Donald Trump.
