Obama in Miami: "Once I'm no longer president, I can come more often!"

President Barack Obama took the stage at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus on Thursday afternoon to talk about the Affordable Care Act.

"Hello, Miami!" he said. "It's good to be back at Miami Dade, one of my favorite institutions."

The president called his trip "one of my last visits here as president." The friendly crowd booed, but Obama stopped them:

"The good news is, once I'm no longer president, I can come more often!" he said. "When I'm out of office, I can come here for fun."

Obama gave shout-outs to MDC President Eduardo Padrón and U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston and Ted Deutch of Boca Raton, all of whom were in the audience. Wasserman Schultz traveled from Washington with Air Force One.

Some 650 people gathered for Obama's speech, including 550 MDC Honors College students, according to the university.
