There were two different stories…two different sources…these are the same people in the White House who talk about the war on women…but when they’ve got a working mom running the DNC what do they do…What this illustrates is how unprofessional in every sense this White House is and how they will try to use her as the scapegoat for a midterm and the President’s policies and unpopularity that’s going to create this problem in November for them…
