The DNC's secular feminist message risks alienating middle America

How may times have we heard something such as, “Barack Obama understands women. Barack Obama cares about women.”

Can you imagine the same thing being said about men?

And while the mainstream media won’t say this, they are overplaying the woman issue — thus, increasing the gender gap they have with men. In so doing, they are taking a very sympathetic argument, and turning it into a negative. Most people believe in equality for women — they do not, however, embrace radical feminism.

It’s almost as if they are intentionally recasting themselves as a mean-spirited, hard-left party, that is increasingly out of touch with “Reagan Democrats” and independents in middle America.
