I can think of a whole host of petitions that the White House didn't like that wound up crossing the threshold on there too.
A few of the petitions for allowing specific states to leave the union come to mind for this. I think that a few of them actually crossed the old threshold, which is probably what prompted the higher numbers for everyone. Obama and his cronies, just like Bush II, doesn't really appreciate it when the people come together to voice their opinions.
Ah yes, because having a rounding error number of people in the country with a moronic idea should be able to waste the time of the federal government?
Care to guess what a counter petition from just the rest of the people in those states would have garnered?
