White House creating website for online petitions


WASHINGTON -- The White House is making it easier for people to press the federal government to act.

It is bringing that age-old constitutional right to petition one's government into the digital age with a new webpage, "We the People," where members of the public will be able to create and sign petitions seeking the government's action on a range of issues.

An official response is guaranteed for any petition that draws enough signatures -- 5,000 names within 30 days -- after it is reviewed by staff and the appropriate policy experts within the administration, according to White House officials who previewed the details for The Associated Press.

The White House planned to launch the page Thursday on its official website, The White House.

One would wonder how they would respond to a petition demanding his resignation, or that he pressure Harry Reid bring Cut Cap and Balance to a vote?

Shoot! I didn't see it. I suppose we can continue where ever we like until the inevitable thread merge.

OK Mods. Merge away!

I don't think so, but I do see it as a request for ideas. Probably a good thing considering he has none of his own.

It is also a good way to collect names to either hit up for campaign contributions or to have the IRS audit.

ACORN & SEIU will have so many fake petition signers on there that Obama will consider himself a dictator.
