When the Solicitor General gets that feedback from a liberal Justice (Sotomayor), you know he’s having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Arizona v. United States did not seem to go well for the Obama Administration today.
Ed Morrissey concludes
If the White House loses their challenge to the most controversial part of the law, expect the Left to go after Verrilli again as they did after his difficult day defending ObamaCare. He may have performed better this time, though, at least on the secondary issues. And once again, the problem was less with Verrilli and more with the administration’s positions that Verrilli had to defend.
