'Women Are Not An Interest Group,' Obama Says By Mary Bruce | ABC OTUS News 1 hr 5 mins ago
As the fight to woo female voters in 2012 intensifies, President Obama today argued that women should not be relegated to a political interest group, and he highlighted the crucial contributions women make to the economy.
"There's been a lot of talk about women and women's issues lately, as there should be. But I do think that the conversation has been oversimplified," the president said at a White House forum on women and the economy, two key issues in the 2012 campaign. "Women are not some monolithic bloc. Women are not an interest group. You shouldn't be treated that way. Women are over half this country and its workforce."
The administration's decision to zero in on women's issues comes as the gender gap between the president and GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney is widening. A recent USA Today/Gallup poll shows the president with an 18-point lead over Romney among female voters in the top 12 swing states.
"These issues are more than just a matter of policy. And when we talk about these issues that primarily impact women, we've got to realize that they are not just women's issues, they are family issues, they are economic issues, they are growth issues, they are issues about American competitiveness. They are issues that impact all of us," the president said.
Obama defended his record on issues related to women and vowed to stand up for them when it comes to fair pay, health care and education. The White House also released a new report today touting the steps the administration has taken to boost the role women play in the economy and help them gain economic security.

>>Women Are Not An Interest Group,<<
Not that I would accept anything barry the zero says, but that would explain why in college I couldn’t get women to be interested in me...
That must have really hurt to say......
Come on Barry! Let your inner Muslim out! You know you want to!
No, the feminazis are a perpetually outraged, enraged identity group.
It’s best not to even talk to them. With very few exceptions, nothing a man says will be construed as benign.
Barry Obama “argued”? Who is he arguing with, himself? He is such a blowhard. Id throw myself off a cliff if I thought I was half as full of sh!t as this moron is.
Hey ladies, are you doing any better after 3 1/2 years under Barry Obama? What about minorities? Doing any better under Barry Obama?
Didn’t think so.
“Women are not an interest group.”
Mmmmm. Then why did I see a bumper sticker the other day that said “Women for Obama”?
So that would make them a Disinterest Group?
‘Women Are Not An Interest Group,’ Obama Says... True, Obama has never been intersted in women..... Tranies yes, women no..
Is he speaking shorthand again?
We knew that women are not a group in which Barry is interested. Now why doesn’t he go back to Indonesia, where the women are men, and let American women make contributions to the economy and all that.
For liberals: Women = Abortion
War on women = War on Abortion
Women are not a special interest group
Abortion is a special interest group
Short answer : of course they are.
Of course not all women, but militant women are, even if they are not really female. The ones that demand free recreational sex are an entirely different category.
Only a child or the insane adult would simply accept a silly assertion as fact. What should the rest of us believe? Obama's delusional assertion or our own eyes and ears?
Must be why there’s no “Men for Obama” bumper sticker.
Leave it to obama to major on his concern about who is golfing. Lord knows it has dominated his time in the White House.
They are Not an Interest group? Then why is he treating them like one?
