A President is referred to as such for life...

Throughout his introduction of President Obama, ASU President Crow referred to him as "Barack Obama", without the honorific. This bothered me immensely; I feel that it is only proper when introducing a President to refer to him that way throughout.

I can't find any video of Crow's introduction, but he was referring to President Obama's focus on education and strides towards improving the nation, etc, etc.
Am I off-base here, or was Crow a bit out of line?
(Aside: despite the insane heat and it being a six-hour event, it was totally worth going to.)
