Q: Yesterday on Hillary Rosen, you had mentioned in the briefing yesterday that -- Hillary Rosen had come about 30 times. Have you followed up yet to find out if it was the Hillary Rosen who is a Democratic strategist?
MR. CARNEY: Sure, let me address that broadly. The point I was making yesterday is that often when we get inquiries about the visitor list, the WAVES list, just based on names, it turns out that people with common names appear -- how do I want to say this? That sometimes there are other people with the same names. This has happened on a number of occasions. So all I was simply saying is that at that point, we had no way of verifying that this was one person. Its also the case that a lot of -- for big events and things like that, that names show up but there are no -- theres no indication on a specific day that an individual actually came or left the White House. So sometimes people are invited to or cleared in for big events but they dont come so its hard to sometimes be sure about how many times somebody has visited.
Having said that, it is certainly the case -- I dont know how many occasions because of all those factors -- it is certainly the case that Hilary Rosen, Democratic strategist, has visited the White House on a number of occasions for large events or large meetings having to do with communications and things like that, but as Democrats have -- supporters of Democrats, Democratic strategists do on occasion. But I dont have a specific number for you.
Q: No meetings with the President?
MR. CARNEY: Im not aware of any meetings with the President.

Carney doesn’t lie very well. He has used this excuse before: “we don’t know if the names on the logs are the same person or different people with the same name”.
So are we to understand that folks just come to visit and leave with no record at the WH? Well that would certainly explain the incompetence on border security.
The White House changes the names in the logs to protect the guilty ?
BINGO! the conversation has been changed to Hillary Rosen, stay at home moms, Jay Carney and Michelle Obama's tweets... anything but the Obama economy.
Indeed. I think he tried to have us believe that there could have been two or three “Milik Shabazz”’s ringing the doorbell from time to time.
Freeper MNDude did a search and found only 2 in the US.
Man, if that guy were Pinnochio, he could be standing in D.C. and dipping his nose in Marina Del Ray, California at the same time.
I’m not a computer wizz but wouldn’t it be possible to
check the dates this Rosen was there against the dates
of group appointments? Do they match up? If not, was she
just there to polish the door knobs?
Just more dead fish from the most transparent administration
