Obama To Unconstituionally Bypass Congress On Treaties

Monday, July 6, 2009

His party has 60 seats in the Senate and he still can't wait for their oversight?


Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. constitution reads: "He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;"

ABC news reports:

"With the clock running out on a new US-Russian arms treaty before the previous Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires on December 5, a senior White House official said Sunday said that the difficulty of the task might mean temporarily bypassing the Senate’s constitutional role in ratifying treaties by enforcing certain aspects of a new deal on an executive levels and a “provisional basis” until the Senate ratifies the treaty."


Sorry Barry, the constitution doesn't say "Unless the president want it done quickly!"

What does "temporarily bypass" even mean? This sort of abuse of power should be immediately put down by Congress. They are, however, a bunch of statists themselves and gutless wonders.
