“President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob. There are good decent men and women who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to test that aren’t taught by some liberal college professor to try to indoctrinate them. Oh, I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image.” – Rick Santorum
In the immortal words of Arnold Jackson (Gary Coleman), “What you talking bout Willis”.
Seriously, what is Santorum talking about? Is he so desperate to find something to stick to Pres Obama and to gain ground in the polls that he would really try to portray the president as a “Snob”? Unfortunately the answer is yes!
Santorum who is a graduate of Penn State and has a Masters in Business Administration and a Law Degree from Dickson School of Law, looks like a disconnected fool! Study after study have shown that in this economy it is becoming nearly impossible to find a decent job without higher education; I guess Santorum missed that economic data. Also Santorum either completely missed the point of Pres Obama when he said he wants to make college affordable for every American…. Or Rick decided to ignore what the president was saying in order to create some kind of fear with the middle class.
I tend to believe that Rick Santorum is all about the latter!
This is the Republican party, the party that will find a way to simply disagree with ANYTHING President Obama supports; even if it means making a fool out of themselves.
In 2006 Rick Santorum boasted about his support for higher education on his campaign website during his 2006 Senate campaign:
Commitment to Higher Education
In addition to Rick’s support of ensuring that primary and secondary schools in Pennsylvania are equipped for success, he is equally committed to ensuring the every Pennsylvanian has access to higher education. Rick Santorum has supported legislative solutions that provide loans, grants, and tax incentives to make higher education more accessible and affordable. – via Talking Points Memo
So what’s the difference now in 2012?
SMH, come on Rick….
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
