Looks like Obama is cranking up his deaf ear to the wishes of the People.

Care to guess how many millions of Americans a random sampling of even 25,000 affirmative responses could represent? This is sickening. Not all such petitions were bizarre and wasteful. And for Christ sake was responding to petitions really going to cripple the White House?!? Given the amount of waste on other things in our government? I don’t know, maybe as President you might want to cultivate an image of being a good listener, someone who is empathetic to the People. Maybe even responding to the death star petition might give the impression that our Countries President is accessible, has a sense of humor and, maybe, just one of the People?!

But nope, it’s jut another example of Obama tuning out the needs of the Masses by cutting down on an interestingly selected point of clerical work.

Not too smart on the ol’ public relations front your Royal Highness.

Ps. Ironically this head line appeared right under the headline that a bunch of children had wrote letters to the President begging for sane gun control.

I say we start a petition to lower the number back down to 25,000.

Face it, it was a good idea and both sides abused the hell out of it and have to be treated like the children they were acting like.

We Know How Far Trump Will Go - How Far Will Republicans Go?

Thom plus logo Colonel Vindman's testimony pretty much proves that Trump was trying to shake down Ukraine for information on Biden, and that the Republicans are doing everything they can to cover up this extortion attempt.
