College boy

According to Rick Santorum, Obama is a snob (looking down on you, white man) for wanting people to go to college.  Talking Points Memo reports:

"Not all folks are gifted the same way. Some people have incredible gifts with their hands," Santorum began. "Some people have incredible gifts and want to work out there making things."

Then he went after the president's call for making college easier for Americans to attend.

President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob," Santorum said as the crowd howled with laughter and applause. "There are good, decent men and women who work hard every day and put their skills to the test that aren't taught by some liberal college professor."

Santorum said he knows the real reason Obama wants more Americans on college campuses.

"That's why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image," Santorum said to more applause. "I want to create jobs so people can remake their children into their image, not his."

I doubt Obama's view is "everyone must go to college indocrination."  It's more like: "everyone should have access to college if they want it."

Nonetheless, this is a kind of brilliantly evil move on Santorum's part: expecting his view to make any sense is a form of snobbery.   

One thought on “College boy”

  1. Just to be clear, Santorum thinks that the typical American is better served by selling stuff on Etsy than by going to college? Not that I have anything against Etsy – I have a cousin who is doing quite well selling soaps and lotions through that site. (She has a college degree, though, so I'm not sure where that leaves her.)
