For GOP star, mom, challenges go beyond Congress

Washington (CNN) - Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' life is like a well-conducted orchestra: Everything happens on cue in precisely the right note.

That's on most days. But other days she readily admits things don't always happen so smoothly.

    Who gives a rats tail. She should be a stay at home mom and leave Congress if it's too much to handle. Give me a break.

    Congratulations. Now make sure all of your many nannies, au-pairs and other house staff are US citizens.

    I have come to learn that the phrase "GOP Star" is applied to the most ideological of the ideologues. To those who follow the script and march the party line in lock step.

    Do you want politicians in Washington telling you what they plan to do, or politicians who do what you ask of them to do? And, when it comes to the politicians telling you what they plan to do, who is telling them what to do?

    Rising star? Too funny. She's just an order taker.

    There nothing extraordinary about this woman. There are thousand of women doing what she is doing every signal day. IAnd the republican party cares nothing about them. I would love to hear her give a speech on woman and faimlies who making 30k a year. If she was so conern about the family or better yet woman rights why did she voted against the fair pay act for woman
