Yesterday on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, former presidential candidate Rick Santorum said he regretted calling President Obama a snob for saying that young people should go to college, over two months ago.
Santorum’s “snob” comment, which he repeated several times during his campaign, grossly mis-characterized President Obama’s actual remarks. In everything from campaign speeches to addresses before Congress, President Obama said that all young Americans should receive some kind of post-secondary education, whether by going to a four year college or community college or vocational training program. Notably, during the campaign, Santorum stood by his original comment during a late February appearance on Meet the Press.
