Oh. My. God. As if it couldn't get any worse. This video clip has to be seen to be believed. And people wonder why conservatives are seen as anti education. This should tell you why.

Santorum: Obama is ‘a snob’ because he wants ‘everybody in America to go to college’ - Election 2012 - The Washington Post

Absolutely apalling.

Everyone shouldn't go to college.

That said, I agree that Santorum's comments are inappropriate.

Everyone should have the chance. Sadly, in the United States that's not the case.

No one should be forced to go to college. Especially now. Don't like Santorum at all, but he has a point, even if he is too stupid to make it properly.

And I think that's true. college isn't for everybody and his comments were inappropriate. But what's so snobby about thinking college is a good idea? The guy's nuts.

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg & Steven Spielberg just might agree with Santorum.

Why are Vocational Schools never mentioned? People can get trades training for the workforce... well... when jobs come back in force.

That might be the most pathetic explanation as to why people shouldn't go to college that I have ever heard. Seriously don't go to college because liberal professors are going to remake you into Obama? A nominee for the president is really going to go with that?

It's true. Education (University/College) system today is the most EVIL system on earth. They teach lawyers, politicians, bankers, etc. how to be corrupt. Wise people realize that fact.

Rick, ya sound like my kinda guy!
