The President set an example by sharing a kiss with his beautiful wife Michelle, minutes before praising her to the cheering and laughing crowd.
The First Lady, introducing her husband, told the Third Infantry Division Headquarters that the president had tirelessly fought for them.
'And, ladies, I think he's kinda cute,' she added to approving hurrahs from women in the crowd. 'She is a tough act to follow,' Obama said moments later.
'For the gentlemen out there who are not yet married, let me just explain to you: Your goal is to improve your gene pool by marrying somebody who is superior to you.' The crowd laughed.
The President had just signed an executive order to help protect military families and veterans from aggressive recruiting by higher education institutions, targeted especially at profit colleges seeking their military benefits without any intention of providing meaningful education.
'Iíve heard the stories,' the president said. 'They harass you into making a quick decision with all those calls and e-mails. And if they canít get you online, they show up on post. One of the worst examples of this is a college recruiter who had the nerve to visit a barracks at Camp Lejeune and enroll Marines with brain injuries ó just for the money. These Marines had injuries so severe some of them couldnít recall what courses the recruiter had signed them up for. Thatís appalling. Thatís disgraceful. That should never happen in America,' he said.
The executive order, he said, will 'make life a whole lot more secure for you and your families and our veterans and whole lot tougher for those who try to prey on you.'
