Valentine's Day warning: 'Don't forget!'

Obama

President Barack Obama did American men a favor. He reminded them it was Valentine's Day.

"Let me start with a quick public service announcement for all the gentlemen out there. Today is Valentine's Day," Obama said in a message yesterday.

"Do not forget!" he warned, suggesting that he himself could have used a reminder at some point in his relationship with his wife of 19 years, Michelle. "I speak from experience here."

"It is important that you remember this," he continued in a preface to remarks about the benefits of a payroll tax cut.

"And go big, that's my advice."

It was the kind of counsel that might be slightly off message for a president trying to portray himself as fiscally prudent.

But on Valentine's Day men are wise to put cost aside. And, no, the president did not forget his own obligation. At 2:39 p.m., he delivered a personal greeting on Twitter: "Hey, (at)MichelleObama: Happy Valentine's Day. -bo"

No word on how big he went.
