Another government release was sneaked out as the country begins to celebrate the New Year.
The White House has posted 25,000 additional records of those visiting the White House. It's all about investment bankers, union leaders and climatologists at the White House, judging by the visitors of President Obama and the President's chief economic advisor Larry Summers.
According to AP:
General Electric chief executive Jeffrey Immelt visited roughly a dozen times. Climate change expert Jonathan Lash visited as did Paul Hanrahan, the chief executive of major energy company AES.Further research shows that Goldman Sach's CEO Lloyd Blankfein pretty much spent the entire day at the White House on October 29. He met with the president twice that day (one meeting had 119 attendees the other 16). On that day he also met one-on-one with Larry Summers. He also met one-on-one with Summers on February 4.
On October 29, Jamie Dimon met with the president twice, it appears in the same meetings as Blankfein. He also met on that day with Larry Summers but with another person present. He also met one-on-one with Rahm Emanuel that day, something Blankfein did not get to do.
Steven Rattner, who for a time ran the government's auto task force and is co-founder of the investment firm, Quadrangle Group, met with Larry Summers over 25 times.
Microsoft's Steve Ballmer met with Summers once. George Soros met with Summers in February.
While SEIU President Andy Stern doesn't show up on the visitors list this time, after topping it last time, his top assistant Anna Burger met with the President 10 times.
Leo Gerard, president of the United Steelworkers, met with the President 4 times.
In addition to his many meetings with Larry Summers, Steve Rattner met with the President twice.
