As Twitchy reported earlier, the White House hosted the Forum on Women and the Economy today, which kicked off with predictable talking points and lame attempts at rah-rah sisterhood pandering. Wait, there’s pandering going on? Enter the Panderer-In-Chief!

As always, Obama proceeded to use women as pawns. Funnily enough, some women don’t cotton to shamefully being used and treated like helpless little victims. You know, the kind of woman who wasn’t invited to the Forum, likely because they are too busy actually doing and not just whining. They made good use of the official hashtag, #WomenEconForum, to let President Obama know they were not impressed with his speech nor his actions.

No, Mr. Obama, what is clear to me, is that you will use women to advance your political agenda. Period. #WomenEconForum

Barack should just pat them all on the head now and thank them for being willing campaign props. #WomenEconForum

President Obama had the audacity (not of hope) to say that “women are not an interest group. You shouldn’t be treated that way.” This from a man who treats women only as an interest group! Then he went on to blather about ‘personal stories’ (all about HIM) and encouraging adults to mooch off of their parents’ insurance policies as if that were a good thing. He threw in some attempts to further the “wage gap” myth as well. Women were again not impressed.

@TeriChristoph Dems couldn't talk if they couldn't tell "stories." Apparently they aren't able to understand concepts without an example.

#WomenEconForum Um, this whole event is what being treated as a special interest group feels like.

#Obama just repeated the lie that @PPact provides mammograms. Make sure to let all friends/potential donors know the TRUTH. #womeneconforum

#WomenEconForum: "Things don't always move forward, sometimes they move backward." Sums up 2009-present very well.

Missing from the President’s speech on Women and the Economy? Anything at all about, you know, the actual economy.

#WomenEconForum More than halfway through and not one mention of rising gas or grocery prices. #waronwomen

She must be one of those ‘not authentic’ women, so her experiences don’t count.

Even some in the media had to report on what a dog and pony show it was.

Not a forum, not about women (except so far as Obama can use them) and not about the economy. A campaign rally for President Obama, on our dime and at our expense. And the conservative women of twitter saw right through it.
