The treaty has never been brought before the senate for debate. The dems will not bring it up because they know it will fail.. Remember, it takes 67 votes in the senate to ratify a treaty. They don't have even a simple majority of 51, much less a super majority of 67.

What do you mean????

When a president signs a treaty, it goes to the senate for ratification. If 67 vote for it, it passes. Otherwise it fails.

This was a resolution, not a treaty ratification vote. It did not carry any weight of law. It was a totally meaningless political gesture.

BTW, the JAPANESE bombed Pearl Harbor.

I wouldn't call it totally meaningless, it did smoke out 46 senators that need to lose their next election.

see Vincents comment/picture. It's a line from 'Animal House'.

I am well aware the Germans did not bomb Pearl Harbor just so you know......

Not one bit 'misleading'. It shows their true colors, basically a 'test' vote.
