White House Hosts Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers: Andrew L. Stern SEIU Tops List of Most Numerous Visitor

A list made available by the White House shows that both William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright have visited the White House since President Obama took office. William Ayers was there twice, once on May 2, 2009  and once on April 9 January 27 , 2009. Jeremiah Wright arrived on March 24, 2009 with no record of departure. Neither had an audience with the President of the United States (POTUS), and according to officials, neither are the William Ayers or the Jeremiah Wright. See 10-31-09 update below.

White House Visitors

The list is available in PDF file and an Excel file, thanks to MSNBC's Bill Dedman. Note that I've taken a guess at the positions these people hold. The information is not provided on the White House list, so...this is a guess.

The most interesting observation is that Andrew L. Stern, the president of SEIU (Service Employees International Union) met with Mr. Obama more times than anyone on this particular list - 7 times, none of them in Oval Office. (see update about Stern below)

Edward L. Yingling, President and CEO of the American Bankers Association met with Obama 4 times

Camden R. Fine, CEO of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) - 4 times
Daniel A. Mica President and CEO of Credit Union National Association
John Huntsman - perhaps Jon Huntsman, Jr., Ambassador to China - 4 times

Jesse Jackson met with the President 3 times and numerous other visits with White House personnel. Al Sharpton made it to the Oval Office, Jesse Jackson did not.

Below is are those meeting with the President in the Oval Office and then a list of those that met with Barack Obama somewhere on the White House grounds. The list often does not have middle initials and many visits are undated. If we could embarrass this White House, this record keeping would be embarrassing. Robert Gibbs said this week that "hundreds of thousands of vistors" had come through the White House since Obama's arrival - here we have only about 500.

Update 10-31-09:
Michelle Malkin headline of 10-25-09: SEIU leads new banking shakedown campaign. We can see from the small list of POTUS visitors above that Obama has concentrated on SEIU and bankers. If I were a banker, I think I'd give some thought to Barack Obama being a spy for SEIU.
