    Now *this* is an opportunity

    Now *this* is an opportunity

    The White House is rolling out a new “petition” system designed, apparently, to help citizens get straight answers from the White House on issues they care about.

    Yeah, I’m not buying it either.  Isn’t this the same White House that tried to claim the high ground during the debt ceiling fight and then didn’t (in part, because the markets were afraid of it) release any plan at all?

    Theoretically, all they’re asking for is 5,000 signatures to get a straight answer.  So as soon as it’s live, let’s flood this thing.

    *By the way, I’m all settled in back at school and will start posting regularly again.

    If 5000 of us ask for his resignation, does that mean his little council will consider our suggestion? Oh, this is SO going to backfire on the WH Student Council (because that is the maturity level of the current administration).

    I, too, would be hesitant to put my email address in the hands of the WH.

    Tar and feather Eric Holder? Have the President make a speech without using his Teleprompter? Repeal Obamacare? This thing won’t last more than a week, so we’d better have fun while we can.

    Gee whiz, and here I thought the CONGRESS had that responsibility.

    Just another Obama end-run.

    I suggest we start with a petition asking for all communications between the White House and the Department of Energy regarding the $530 million loan guarantee to Solyndra at a amazingly low interest rate.
    We should be aware that there are connections to Obama fundraising involved as well as knowing that Solyndra has now gone Chapter 11, but those shouldn’t be mentioned on the petition.
