Skip to comments.Obama yields on White House visitor logs
Posted on 09/04/2009 8:22:06 AM PDT by Titus-Maximus
The Obama administration says it will release names of most visitors to the White House, starting at the end of this year. Information on visitors in the first eight months of his administration will remain secret unless you know which names to ask for.
The White House called the release of information "voluntary," continuing to argue the Bush administration's position that full disclosure is not required by the Freedom of Information Act.
After being sued twice by a nonprofit organization seeking the records, the Obama administration said Friday it will post the visitor logs online. The release will be time delayed, with 90 to 120 days passing before the records are posted on the White House Web site. And only visits after Sept. 15, 2009, will be revealed.

Hypocrisy Hypocrisy Hypocrisy
With all the technology in “our” house, there really is no need to visit our White House.
“Information on visitors in the first eight months of his administration will remain secret unless you know which names to ask for.”
How about any Arab-sounding name?
I wonder what he’s hiding this time???
Yep, that’s a big one. Another would be Jeff Jones?
He’s only doing it because of that and the fact that when we find out just who is visiting 1600 on a regular basis it will add to our fear and outrage.
Zero & his posse seem to enjoy starting a fire and throwing gas on it.
This is such a joke. It’s non-compliant compliance. They’re going to overwhelm anyone looking for names by releasing tens of thousands of names each month, including every tour visitor to the white house. No one cares about them. The white house says it WILL NOT release the names of “purely personal” visitors or names they deem to be sensitive to national security. The WHITE HOUSE will still decide what is released. I would guess that means Rev. Wright could visit every week and never be named. What a sham.
Maybe the people who went on a joyride on Air Force 1.
It says MOST visitors...so he can still hide who he wants.
What a bunch of crap this is. Transparency? Not at all.
Friends and family of the Pres. and VP will NOT be released.
We haven’t forgotten whose on this list and who is currently advising Obama, have we?
No names of those pre-Sept. 15...would have been nice to know those who had Barry’s ear in light of all the nonsense shoved through since January.
No names of those who would be meeting with Obama regarding sensitive issues...very subjective.
All in all, there is no transparency and this is more of the same from this administration.
LMAO this is a JOKE....right? Name avowed communists and terrorist and chicago mob rulers and we are in like Flynn.
No bet(s) required for something that is already a given.
“..most visitors to the White House”
Why even bother if you can cherry pick out the names you do not want the public to see anyway...............
I’ll bet a few savvy people would know which names to ask about. I hope they do, then share with Rush, Hannity, Beck, etc.
As well as name CEO’s of all the payoffs of WallStreet/Healthcare that are on the take with the WH.
Which means absolutely nothing. Most visitors? Is there a single living person who thinks they'd release the name of a single visitor that might raise awkward questions for the White House?
“most” visitors? Love that transparency!
Release the names of most visitors at the end of the year, huh?
More obfuscation and delay.
“Ill bet a few savvy people would know which names to ask about. I hope they do, then share with Rush, Hannity, Beck, etc.”
1.Don’t you think this is interesting timing?
2.Think about it - this administration has been about creating chaos in many areas and some things are a distraction.
3.a cover up for past errors (Van Jones)
4. Someone will come forward from the administration - someday (we can hope it will be soon - just like the artist that Beck interviewed)
This IS the most transparent administration in history. I see right through his LIES.
Shades of John F. Kerry "signing" his 180 form.
Start asking for Ayers, Manson, Wright, Marx, Moore, Quanell X,...
If we have to GUESS who may have been there, don’t leave anyone out.
Way to point an arrow at the records that absolutely must be seen now. The Obama folks are daring folks to redouble efforts to get this information released.
The Secret Service knows.
“And only visits after Sept. 15, 2009, will be revealed”
Yes, this is what I mean about interesting timing!
I thought I heard they want the health care bill passed by 9/15 - maybe that is not correct.
But it makes you wonder what do they have planned between now and Sept. 15.
Considering the Open Racists and Marxists that the administration openly appoints to high level position, it really makes you wonder how radical the people must be if they actually are afraid to let you know they were present in the White House.
Key word; “MOST”, translation: we will release the names of whom WE choose to. They will continue to HIDE the names of the communist, socialist, revolutionary “fellow-travelers” that they invite to dine and meet with king Obamessiah.
It’s purely a distraction from Van Jones, his tanking poll numbers, and his flagging health care proposal he’s never read.
And on Sept 15, 2009 two separate logs will be maintained. One for visitors and one for guests. The guest log will be secret of course.
THIS IS A COVER-UP. Take it back to court.
“most visitors? Love that transparency!”
That all depends on what your definition of “most” is.
The Non-profit organization mentioned in the article has stated it is satisfied with the Obama administration response. It tucked its tail between its legs and made off for the hills. This should not be the end of this matter.
Selective Transparency...thats what we got!
Good photo and on Drudge today. It says quite a bit. He’s failing and he knows it.
He wouldn’t mind so many Americans being out of work if the socialist plank was being put into place. But it’s not and the damn proles are rising up.
Who do these clingers, proles and little people think they are anyway?
The Rats hate the people, condescend to America with every breath and are now shocked that the average American is rising up against them.
They can scarcely believe it. Neither can the media. And their self-denial is only making it worse.
Proud of you America, damn proud. Now go out folks and make sure everyone you know hits the phones on Tuesday and beyond. Axelrod and co. are going to make another attempt to shove DeathCare right down America’s throat.
They know what’s good for you.

>> eight months of his administration will remain secret
>> unless you know which names to ask for.
Fine. What was it LBJ said? “Let’s make the son****itch deny it.”
Enter the names of all known terrorists, communists, mobsters — and with due credit to Arlo Guthrie, “mother rapers, father stabbers, and father rapers.”
And all their lawyers.
Leave no one but the litterbugs.
Yo obama, WTH are you hiding????????
Fidel Castro and Joanne Chesimard! For dinner.
Everyone from George Soros and Ward Churchill to Lyndon LaRouche.
I also bet his reverend wright and bill ayers among others
“Obama Drops Log...details at 11.”
The White House called the release of information “voluntary,” continuing to argue the Bush administration’s position that full disclosure is not required by the Freedom of Information Act.
So, Bush is bad but Bushdoubleplusoneandwaybeyond is okay?
Well, its a new day of enlightenment in politics.
