This is plain and simple pandering to the eco left-wing base.
No doubt some rich San Francisco commie with deep pockets ordered Obama to sign this in exchange for campaign cash.
Just remember, nobody thought Obamacare will pass Congress either...
Senate gears up for Law of the Sea Treaty push
“The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has scheduled a hearing next week on the decades-old international Law of the Sea Treaty, confirming the Senate’s desire to try again for ratification after failing five years ago.
The treaty is championed by the State and Defense departments, which argue that the treaty would create a new legal framework for the peaceful resolution of territorial disputes. It has already been signed by more than 160 countries.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey are all slated to testify Wednesday, underscoring that ratification is a priority for the administration. The Senate is expected to take it up this summer.”
Just think what Obama will do in his second term...
Bull crap! All 0 has to do is tell the neutered repubs in congress that its part of homeland security and they will grab it hook, line and sinker!
