Now their claws are showing and it ain't pretty. Hilary Rosen let "slip" her disdain for motherhood a few days ago. The Obama White House quickly disavowed any knowledge, saying she did not speak for them. But there are some who are not convinced.
Wyoming Republican Rep. Cynthia Lummis added that Rosen is part of the administration’s surrogate strategy.
