Only an Act or Treaty ratified by Congress is binding I believe. Until that happens? Obama only has Executive Branch authority. Since Pelosi is the real boss however, it is cause for concern.
I honestly believe Pelosi is now running this country.

When I first read "Late Great Planet Earth (Hal Lindsey) in 1979 it was difficult to perceive how the one-world government would come to be, but here it is.
The next step will be one-world religion and an Orwellian society.
As an aside, the date, 04/02/2009 works out numerically to 8, the money number.

Yea right. It already IS a global economic/financial system. It has been for some time. Since we were put into hock by blowing our budget surplus and borrowing trillions from foreign countries we kinda gave up that whole sovereignty angle.
It would have been fine had we kept a watchful eye on the US financial industry but that, apparently, was too much to ask. So we sold borderline fraudulent investment products to foreign investors thereby putting their US debt securities --- their massive US investments --- at risk. If we ever expect to sell US debt to anyone ever again you can rest assured that transparent, unifrom regulation will be a prerequisite.
To try and paint this as some sort of Obama treasonous act is outright ridiculous. If we want to borrow from the world economy then they get a say in the rules. These people clearly have a very myopic view of the current situation. We're in no position to dictate terms. It was our cluster-fart that caused this mess and the world's nations are calling us on it.
Too bad we didn't mind our own house before everything blew up, huh?
That boss being the shadow government -- administration officials who are members of the CFR, Trilateral Commission and/or Bilderberger. I think Geithner is a member of all three. Not a coincidence.
