Rick Santorum calls President Obama a “snob” for wanting all students to attend college. President Obama never suggested all students need to attend Harvard like he did. He reiterated this today at the White House:
The jobs of the future are increasingly going to those with more than a high school degree and I have to make a point here. When I speak about higher education we’re not just talking about a four year degree. We’re talking about somebody going to a community college and getting trained and, for that manufacturing job that now is requiring somebody walking through the door handling a million dollar piece of equipment. And they cant go in there unless they’ve got some basic training beyond what they received in high school.
But that reiteration didn’t stop Alice Stewart, Santorum’s press secretary, from defending her boss’s comments.
