Indeed, of the 157 events Shulman was cleared to attend, White House records only provide time of arrival information -- confirming that he actually went to them -- for 11 events over the 2009-2012 period, and time of departure information for only six appointments.

Oh my god. Oh my god, do you know what this means. Shulman is still in the White House! HE'S STILL IN THE WHITE HOUSE. GET OUT, GET OUT NOW

Popcorn Johnny: Watching the Obama presidency crash and burn is damn entertaining. Not nearly as good as a new episode of Game of Thrones, but equal to a new episode of The Big Bang Theory at least.


"Conservative propagandists have, once again, been caught lying their asses off for the bazillionth time! THIS IS BAD NEWS FOR OBAMA!"

You know, that was exactly what I thought when I read that part. What if he's got his own living quarters in there? He could just be living there full time working on the scandal, and those six departures are the only times he's ever left the place! We're not just through the looking glass, we've shattered it.

randomjsa: So basically Atlantic has no more idea than anyone else does and is just spewing liberal talking points to help cover up another Obama administration scandal.


Y'all are adorable.

On Thursday, Andrew Sullivan wrote: "I'd be grateful for reader scrutiny of this data -- simply because I do not trust the source, and there may be context I'm missing. But if the Caller is right that in the Bush years, 'Shulman's predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration,' we need an explanation -- and fast."

I'm getting really tired of Andrew Sullivan.

So here is some more context: There is no Bush Administration public-records data about who went to the White House. As incomplete as it is, the Obama White House data is more public information than we have about any other administration, or the visits of any other IRS commissioner.

Most transparent administration ever! Oh, wait.

Investor's Business Daily accused Shulman of having scurried "to the West Wing more than 100 times" in the piece "IRS Chief's 118 White House Visits Must Be Explained." But the publicly available data shows that the assertion of more than 100 West Wing visits is plainly wrong.

I'm sure IBD, Fox, Daily Caller, et al, will be offering retractions promptly.

FlashHarry: Popcorn Johnny: Watching the Obama presidency crash and burn is damn entertaining.

obama's approval rating since the "scandals" broke: up
the GOP's approval rating since the "scandals" broke: down

yup, sounds like crashing and burning to me...


Obama is such a failure, he can't even crash and burn correctly.

There ARE no trolls here, didn't you know that?

Just people with a difference of opinion.

What, is 0bummer too good to meet with his IRS honcho from time to time? Could only clear his busy schedule of golf and Hawaiian vacations eleven times in all these years? Who's driving this boat, anyway? Who's minding the henhouse?(Oh, that's right - eggs and chicken are food, so that's MooChelle's department.) Damned uppity layabout can't be bothered to do a damned thing except put his feet up on the that desk and ruin everything forever.

Watching Johnny Popcorn show off his stupidity is also as entertaining as watching paint dry.
