By The Ed Show, The Ed Show - February 29, 2012

Guests: Richard Wolffe, Ezra Klein, Bob Shrum, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ayanna Pressley, Dr. Amy Bryant, Dr. James Peterson

ED SCHULTZ, HOST: Good evening, Americans. And welcome to THE ED SHOW tonight from New York.

Well, less than 24 hours after winning Arizona and Michigan, Mitt Romney takes his push button mentality to the battleground state of Ohio. Rick Santorum and his pet rock, well, they are in Tennessee.

And President Obama is cleaning both of their clocks.

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


MITT ROMNEY (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Let`s talk about jobs, the president`s failed.

SCHULTZ (voice-over): Mitt Romney escaped Michigan with a win. But he can`t escape the truth.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: You got folks say, well, the real problem is, what we really disagreed with was the workers, they all made out like bandits. Even by the standards of this town, that`s a load of you-know-what.

SCHULTZ: Tonight, Richard Wolffe on President Obama`s reality and Romney`s fiction, Bob Shrum on the Republican fight for the middle class votes on Super Tuesday, and Ezra Klein on the fuzzy math in Mitt Romney`s budget.

The Republican war on women`s health is exploding in Washington.

SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D), CALIFORNIA: Two-point-eight million jobs are at stake and we`re debating birth control. Let`s beat the Blunt Amendment, it`s a disaster.

SCHULTZ: The radical Blunt Amendment is now up for a vote. Big name Republicans are now running away from the legislation. We`ll have the latest.

Incredible numbers for Democrats in Wisconsin show Scott Walker is in for the political fight of his life. We`ll have the new poll.

And Reverend Franklin Graham has finally seen the light.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you believe that President Obama is a Christian?

REV. FRANKLIN GRAHAM, EVANGELIST: I think you have to ask President Obama.

SCHULTZ: Dr. James Peterson on the reverend`s surprise apology to the president.


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

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, well, they wasted no time shifting their attention to the working class in the state of Ohio. Now, it`s all about Super Tuesday.

Mitt Romney won big in Arizona yesterday, but his win in Michigan isn`t looking like much of a win today. Romney won the popular vote in Michigan by about 32,000 votes, 41 percent to 38 percent over Rick Santorum.

But today, Santorum claimed victory.


RICK SANTORUM (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: We won Michigan last night by coming out of Michigan with 15 delegates out of 30 delegates in Mitt Romney`s home state.


SCHULTZ: Santorum is right, a win is a win for Mitt Romney but the delegates are split evenly. Each candidate received 15 delegates.

Romney spent time today cutting down the guy who tied him in Michigan.


ROMNEY: Rick Santorum is a nice guy, but he`s an economic lightweight. He doesn`t understand what it takes to make an economy work on a personal basis.
