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.
