SOTU Crib Sheet for June 17

Today on “State of the Union” President Obama’s senior adviser David Plouffe insisted the White House shift on immigration policy was not a political move. Pressed on the timing and the political impact of the decision, Plouffe said, “who knows how the politics will turn out.” Meanwhile, Former Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum told us Mitt Romney’s response to the new immigration policy shows he’s “trying to walk a line as not to sound like he’s hostile to Latinos.” Santorum also told us he’s not interested in serving in a Romney administration. On the looming Supreme Court decision on health care, neither Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), nor Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) articulated a definitive plan for what their parties would do if the Supreme Court strikes down the law.
