WASHINGTON --- President Obama has been rolling out the red carpet at the White House during his first term -- playing host to a who's who of business-world bigs and A-list celebs including George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey, newly released records reveal.

Also among the Tinseltown drop-ins were megastars Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington, who paid a visit in May, according to visitors logs, which cover January to July.

The administration posted the records on its Web site yesterday, two days after a report revealed that some of Obama's top financial backers had gotten White House tours and even use of a bowling alley in the White House compound.

You realize a round of golf takes 4 hours minimum, so he has spent 96+ hours on the Golf course.

Of course, Jermiah Wright, William Ayers and Angela Davis are on the list, but the White House says it is not just people with similar names to the infamous ones.

The Secret Service said that HW Bush and W Bush used to play “45 minute” golf games. There was always a ball in the air.

I thought I was reading the Onion, but this is on the site (I’m assuming they’re serious when they say it, but it’s the lamest excuse I’ve ever seen.)

A lot of people visit the White House, up to 100,000 each month, with many of those folks coming to tour the buildings. Given this large amount of data, the records we are publishing today include a few “false positives” – names that make you think of a well-known person, but are actually someone else. In September, requests were submitted for the names of some famous or controversial figures (for example Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly (”R. Kelly”), and Malik Shabazz). The well-known individuals with those names never actually came to the White House. Nevertheless, we were asked for those names and so we have included records for those individuals who were here and share the same names

Yeah, I’m sure there are a million people with the name Malik Shabazz visiting Washington and the WH.

I hope the haven't redecorated the White House with the same sense of style as Michelle dresses or they will have to gut the place in 2012.

George Soros has met with Obama MORE TIMES than Gen. McChrystal has. And SEIU President Andy Stern has met with Barry MORE TIMES then Barry's met with his Cabinet.

My conclusion is.. We're DOOMED!

Well, the black velvet paintings and the New Orlean whorehouse sofas will be easy to throw out. The Gang signs spray painted on the walls would be a harder thing to remove.
