If Obama loses in November he and Harry Reid are gonna do the “nuclear option” (overruling the filibuster) and force simple up or down votes in the US Senate on this treaty and perhaps several others.

They know the US Constitution abdicates national legal authority to, ratified by the Senate, the dictates of international treaties.
If a socialist Obama can't rule America a socialist UN will—and you thought the LAST lame duck congress damaged the country.

Yes, I read about the possibility of that little fiasco.

It would mean little to Zer0 because he'll be gone but that could backfire big time on the RATS that will still be around. I wonder if enough of them would prevent that to avoid a future backlash. A lot of Dems in Wisconsin had enough of the unions and they broke with the party.

Filibuster? This is a treaty and requires 67 votes.

Needs 2/3s vote of the Senate to approve this. If there are any ‘Pubbies in the Senate when the vote goes down, its pretty unlikely to get approved...
