Veteran liberal editor Tina Brown explains Obama’s declining fortune with women, which threatens to sink Democrats on Election Day.
Women, she said this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, don’t feel safe with Obama at the helm. A sense among of insecurity is a big political problem, because it strikes at a visceral need for women.
The politically correct would be offended by the suggestion women in particular need to feel secure, but it happens to be true, and no Democratic political operative worth their pay would ignore the issue of safety and women – though of course they might attack Republicans for bringing it up.
Fortunately, Tina Brown brought it up. She said:
For women, I don’t think he makes them feel unsafe. They feel unsafe economically, they’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe about Ebola . . .
I think they’re beginning to feel a bit like Obama’s that guy in the corner office who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says “This has to change,” doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change. Then it goes wrong, and he’s blaming everybody.
