WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Friday showered attention on helping women yet warned in the same motion that they should not be reduced to a uniform political bloc, declaring they are not an interest group and "shouldn't be treated that way."

"When we talk about these issues that primarly impact women, we've got to realize that they are not just women's issues," he said at a White House forum on women and the economy.

“Straight” women have NEVER been a group Bath-House Barry was interested in. I hear he likes white, old guys-—(probably with their dentures out of their mouths)?

President Obama, as a woman — I don’t NEED you.

I’ve got my husband, my family, and my own abilities and independence to obtain whatever it is I need.

Just do your dam job and protect the Constitution. Oh, but you can’t even manage THAT, now, can you.

Thanks.

To Obama, “women” are like Oprah.

Brainwashed, and barefoot.

President Barack Obama on Friday showered attention on helping women yet warned in the same motion that they should not be reduced to a uniform political bloc, declaring they are not an interest group and "shouldn't be treated that way."

The reason he declared women shouldn't be treated as an interest group was, of course, to pander to their vanity, and thus reinforce them as an interest group of women who refuse to be seen as an interest group.

:: sigh ::

The only thing more horrifying than the rank stupidity of this pandering manipulation is that it works.

Nor are they a monolithic block of like-thinking liberals -- since you raised the issue Mr. President.

Prove it Mr. President. Give me free gas instead of free birth control.

I think he was misquoted. He said “womwn are not an interesting group.”

He plays for the other team.

Let’s hope women as a whole have awoken from the ‘black magic’ spell 0bama performed on them in 2008.

That is a self-contradictory statement.

Women are not an interest group. Please remind Emily’s list, League of Women Voters, NARAL and NOW of that.

I am sure they will be the first ones to jump up and declare that they are not an interest group.

Of Course it works ,havent you heard of the Battered wife syndrome? Women feel dissed by their husbands and they get Battered by their husbands and they stay with them to continue to be beaten up. The unemployment for women under Obama is UP,women are losing their health Coverage because of Unemployment,they have to pay more for Gas for Driving around the Kids,so what do you think the Women will do,of Course, vote for Obama. Its the same Reason they Continued to Vote for The serial Womanizer Bill Clinton,something they would Kill their own Husbands for they Loved him for Doing it.
Just think what Womans Lib has done for the Female,Made them so independent they now Beg to Be taken care of by the Likes of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama,How Pathetic

But apparently are tools to be abused by Obama and George Stephanopoulos.

Speak for yourself, swishy. Most red-blooded men find women to be a very interesting group...........

"When we talk about these issues that primarly impact women, we've got to realize that they are not just women's issues,"

Of course they are not, Barry: they are also "issues" that the limped-wristed, metrosexual, leftist, "Dudes" favor as well, never mind the actual homos, transgender and those of unknown gender.
