With things going to hell on land, the Obama administration has been forced to shift the focus to water.

Nearly four years ago, Michelle wrote about the oncoming “stealth Obama ocean grab.” These days, in an effort to replace “bad” headlines with “good” headlines, the grab is not so stealth:

President Barack Obama announced new executive orders Tuesday to make huge swaths of the Pacific Ocean off limits to fishing, energy exploration and other economic activities.

The move would create the world’s largest marine sanctuary, and is part of a broader push to tackle global warming and halt offshore energy development. This effort will be led by Secretary of State John Kerry and White House adviser John Podesta.

Obama’s new executive orders would expand the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument from 87,000 square miles to 782,000 square miles. All the waters being put off-limits would are located near U.S.-controlled islands and atolls, and the designation includes waters up to 200 nautical miles within U.S. holdings.

Totally distracted from the actual problems yet? Me neither.

Rumor has it Robert Ballard is being called in to scour the protected ocean floor looking for Obama’s approval rating, but with any luck he’ll find Lois Lerner’s old hard drive instead.
