NOW with Alex Wagner | June 26, 2012
>>> so the supreme court had to step in because states had to step in. states looking to find a way to solve the problems he didn't address, tried to address it in their own ways and now the supreme court 's looked at it. what we're left with is a bit of a muddle. what we know is the president failed to lead. he failed to do what he said he'd do.
>> that was governor romney speaking in virginia moments ago, reacting to yesterday's supreme court decision on arizona's immigration law . michael steele , i feel like it's a little bit like candidate mad libs , blah, blah, blah, blah, end with president fails to lead. is that --
>> no, it's not. it's more like the charlie brown wa, wa, wa, not the blah, blah, blah. i go back to my earlier point, that's a stump speech , obviously. i think romney's team has their own timeline, their own way of approaching these issues, and you know, i think to the point that kurt made earlier, i hate to repeat myself, i really think this thing, the early setup, the game begins labor day after these conventions and then the proof is in the pudding . the president will, as will mitt romney , have to lay out concretely how you are going to address the debt and deficit, the spending, taxes, the issues that relate to real people who are struggling in this country right now, and he who does that will win. he who does not will lose. i think about as philosophical as i can get.
>> to be the republican party that prevented a republican reform of immigration, again and again and again, and then say oh, and he failed to lead, i mean, you cannot have that kind of instant revisionism.
>> they also were attacking --
>> i'm not going to argue that.
>> you can't have it both ways. either he did too much or did too little. not both.
>> he doubled deportations.
>> we will see if --
>> the only thing he is clear about is corporations are people.
>> katrina vanden heuvel gets the last word. we did not talk about michael steele 's mustache. maybe we can show the split screen as i thank everybody. i don't know. i don't know which i like better. okay. thanks again to kurt, karen, chairman steele, mustacheless or no, and katrina. that is all for now. see you back here tomorrow at noon eastern, 9:00 a.m . pacific.
