On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, author and Daily Beast founder Tina Brown took aim at President Barack Obama and his handling of the several crises facing the country with regards to how women voters view perceive his responses.
Brown explained that Obama’s persona has done little to reassure that key voting bloc.
“They’ve got themselves a little better disciplined. But, you know, the fact is that Obama’s down with everybody, let’s face it, there’s a reason,” Brown said. “And I think that particularly for women. I don’t think it makes them feel safe. I think they’re feeling unsafe. Economically, they’re feeling unsafe. With regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe. They feel unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises. And I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, 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. So there’s a slight sense of that.”
Brown also attack the GOP, saying that while Obama has been underwhelming in some regards, Republicans have done nothing to pick up the slack in her view.
“But at the same time, we ought to think about what Republicans are doing for women, which is very little, you know,” Brown added. “I mean, they were against … they blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act –the fourth time since 2012. You know, they are really just not helping women at all. This gap in the economy is terrible. The fact that women are losing their jobs even more than men because of this whole kind of part-time issue and the economy’s terrible. So, you know, it’s not good.”
