White House visitor logs show that Hilary Rosen, the DC lobbyist/Anita Dunn colleague who attacked Ann Romney’s stay-at-home-mom status on CNN last night, visited 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at least 35 times.
(Remember: White House logs are an inaccurate measure of ACTUAL White House visits, as liberal media outlets/watchdogs themselves have reported and as I’ve reminded you many times.)
More illuminating than the number of visits is the info about who Hilary Rosen visited. (Note: The vast majority of entries list “Hilary B. Rosen” as the visitor; Rosen’s middle name is Beth. White House press secretary Jay Carney lamely obfuscated earlier this morning about whether the Rosen in question was indeed the visitor listed in logs or another of the “three” Hilary Rosens he knows.)
The records are a mess, so let me break it down for you:

Plus: 12/15/09 – 12/15/10 – 12/15/11 — Incomplete entries, no visitee identified.
Bottom line: For the last three years, Hilary Rosen has met nearly three dozen times with top Obama communications and political strategists from Valerie Jarrett to David Axelrod to Anita Dunn to Jim Messina to the president himself.
Any notion that her frontal assault on GOP women was an accident or lone wolf move is contradicted by the long paper trail of her intimate working relationship with the White House campaign/media team. The data also puts the disavowals of Messina/Axelrod last night into much-needed perspective.
They can’t disassociate themselves from one of their most frequent visitors and associates.
They just never expected the fierce online/social media pushback they got from conservative women, who are beating them at their own medium.
Naturally, Hilary Rosen is out with a new piece on CNN deriding GOP moms again and calling their outrage fake.
