Anyone who posts comments on the White Houses Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Twitter pages will have their statements captured and permanently archived by the federal government, according to a plan that the White House is now seeking a contractor to carry out.
The Executive Office of the President is looking for a private contractor to capture and archive comments and information posted on social networking and new media sites where the White House has established a presence. While the Presidential Records Act (PRA) generally requires that the administration preserve information generated by the president and his staff, the White House says that in seeking to collect and preserve comments made by common citizens on social networking sites it is acting out of an abundance of caution to comply with the law.
In mid-August, the White House put out a request for quotation (RFQ)which seeks bids from private firms for the project. Under the terms stated by the White House, the contractor would have broad responsibilities in collecting information from White House related Web pages.

...by being mentioned once or twice a year. I'm sure that definition will be broad indeed. So taxpayer money will go to help catalog and analyze the opposition to the WH agenda. Thats slick, for King Hussein.
