ED SCHULTZ, HOST: Good evening, Americans. And welcome to THE ED SHOW live from Minneapolis.

President Obama is destroying Republican lies about his record. Polls are showing Americans across the country -- they are not buying the spin anymore from the righties.

This is THE ED SHOW -- let`s get to work.


MITT ROMNEY (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I have always voted for a Republican any time there was a Republican on the ballot.

NARRATOR: Romney said he`s always voted Republican when he had the opportunity.

SCHULTZ (voice-over): Republicans are attacking each other in Florida.

And the president is attacking unemployment in Michigan.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: If there is anybody in America who can teach us how to bring back manufacturing, it is the great state of Michigan.

SCHULTZ: Tonight, Congressman Tim Ryan on the strong new numbers for America`s recovery.

And Jonathan Cohn of "The New Republic" on the message the president needs to send.

NARRATOR: If we can`t trust what Mitt Romney says about his own record, how can we trust him on anything?

SCHULTZ: Mitt Romney is basically lying his way to the nomination. And now, Newt Gingrich is calling him on the carpet. We`ll have the latest.

OBAMA: Bill Gates is doing fine. I`m doing fine. We --

SCHULTZ: Good to have you with us tonight, folks. Thanks for watching.

President Obama -- how else do you put it -- he is on the offensive, making the turn with more good news on the economy today. He is starting to take the credit that he deserves. Here is the president in Ann Arbor, Michigan today.


OBAMA: The American auto industry was on the verge of collapse. And some politicians were willing to let it just die.

I believe in American ingenuity, we placed our bets on the American auto industry. And today, the American auto industry is back, jobs are coming back!


OBAMA: A hundred and sixty thousand jobs.


SCHULTZ: You can`t say it enough, Mr. President. More jobs are on the way.

Here are the numbers, the American automobile industry is expected to grow 41 percent from 2010 to 2015, according to industry forecasts. General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, they all plan to add more jobs here in the United States. That`s the good news.
