One student in Allentown, Pennsylvania had a humorous question for the president Friday. “I was wondering if maybe if you checked out some of the statistics about legalizing prostitution, gambling, drugs and non-violent crime in order to stimulate some of the economy?” asked the second year college student.

“I appreciate the boldness of your question. That will not be my jobs strategy,” Obama replied as the audience laughed.
