"Women are not an interest group"

So says the President who is also the leader of a party and champion of an ideology that treats women in precisely that fashion, that is, a bloc of potential voters to be mined for electoral success.  Along with, of course, blacks, Hispanics, the "poor", illegals, the elderly, the infirm, the handicapped, homosexuals,....

It's a tried and true strategy.  If you can divide the country into "us" and "them" just enough, you can sometimes manufacture the narrow majority you need to win an election.
