THE ED SHOW with ED SCHULTZSeptember 11, 2012

Guests: Karrie Turner, Senator Sherrod Brown, Karen Lewis

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

Fifty-six days until the 2012 election. On a day where Americans honor the heroes and victims of 9/11, one party just can`t put politics aside.

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


BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: This anniversary allows us to renew our faith that even the darkest night gives way to a brighter dawn.

SCHULTZ (voice-over): As the nation mourns and remembers, Republicans attack.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The president calls for a moment of silence, but he doesn`t call for the word God. So some people are asking, why is God being left out again?

SCHULTZ: FOX News, Dick Cheney, House Republicans and others use the 9/11 anniversary to attack the president. I`ll have commentary. Jonathan Alter is here with reaction.

LAURA INGRAHAM, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: If you can`t beat Barack Obama with this record, then shut down the party. Shut it down. Start new with new people.

SCHULTZ: Mitt Romney has major problems inside his own tent. We`ll tell you why the right wing buyer`s remorse is setting in so early.

Karl Rove and friends are getting desperate in Ohio.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Politicians like Sherrod Brown voted for billions in new taxes.

SCHULTZ: We`ll ask Senator Sherrod Brown about his opponent`s dark money controversy.

And on day two of the Chicago teachers strike, the union isn`t backing down to the bully. The Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis is here for an exclusive interview.


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

The presidential candidates and their running mates put their campaigns on hold to mark the somber anniversary of the terrorist attacks. President Obama spoke this morning at a Pentagon Memorial ceremony where one of the hijacked planes crashed 11 years ago today.


OBAMA: We know that somewhere a son is growing up with his father`s eyes and a daughter has her mother`s laugh, living reminders that those who died are with us still.


SCHULTZ: The president made a detour to Arlington National Cemetery where casualties of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are laid to rest.

Vice President Joe Biden was in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, honoring the victims of Flight 93 and their families. Biden drew upon his experience with the loss of his wife and his infant daughter 30 years ago.


JOE BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: My hope for you all is that as every year passes, the depth of your pain recedes and you find comfort as I have, genuine comfort, in recalling his smile, her laugh, their touch.


SCHULTZ: In Wisconsin, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan met with first responders and members of the Wisconsin Air National Guard. And Mitt Romney spoke to a conference of the National Guard Association in Reno, Nevada.


MITT ROMNEY (R), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: I would normally speak to a gathering like this about the differences between my and my opponent`s plans for military and for our national security. There is a time and place for that. But this day is not that.
