  •  It's a vent hole (5+ / 0-)

    It was created as a place to allow people to let off steam.  It creates the illusion that they're actually having an impact, when all they're doing is helping grow OFA's database of email addresses.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  Yes it is a vent hole. A stroke of genius. (0+ / 0-)

      President Obama was a community organizer.  He is a genius.  He wasn't carrying a basket of cookies to grandma's house.  He was gaining an understanding of how communities work.

      People mostly get worked up about stupid shit.  

      People won't sign a petition unless they are worked up.  Otherwise they will find fault and fight among themselves.

      So the White House has a perfect instant barometer of what the people are willing to do.
