A visit to the White House petition site.

“Rename the White House Press Room, “Richard Jewell”.

Went looking on the White House web site “We the People” for any petitions regarding a move to rename the WH Press Room (or the FBI building) after ‘Richard Jewell’. But I had no luck. There doesn’t seem to be any way to search for a existing petition on a particular issue.  I don’t really think it’s likely that either building is going to get renamed, but it would be a hoot to ‘sign’ any such petition.  So I don’t know if there are any existing petitions started, but I figured it would be useful to suggest they do something about the way the “We the People” site is organized.

So I did this:

Dear friends,  I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 99,999 signatures by January 08, 2020, the White House will review it and respond!
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the White House to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the White House will issue an official response.
You can view and sign the petition here:


Here’s some more information about this petition: Add a “Search” function to We the People website so we can find petitions we are interested in.
People who come here to sign an particular petition or check to see if there are petitions already in existence for a issue before creating another one have no way to search for petitions by subject, issue or title.
An example, I came here to see about petitions regarding renaming the White House Press Room for “Richard Jewell”.  Is there already a petition?  I don’t know. If there is a good reason for not having a search function, I can’t think of one.
Please add a search function or keyword index.

We’ll see what happens.  And don’t forget, Clint Eastwood’s new movie “Richard Jewel” opens on Friday.  It’s on my ‘must-see’ list.
