Let the world change you... and you can change the world

Your Anti-Education Candidate

I normally do everything I can to avoid listening to Rick Santorum, but last night my local TV news broadcast slipped this Santorum gem by me before I could hit the channel changer:

“President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob!”

So Rick Santorum is opposed to the whole concept of a college education!  This guy is so far out there I don’t think he can even see bizarro world from where he is.  In my lifetime the U.S. has slipped from having the best educational system in the world, to not even ranking in the top ten countries in any skill category.  And the “fix” that the right-wing promotes is firing teachers, closing schools, and cutting educational budgets.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.  And now along comes Santorum, advocating against going to college.

And here’s the scariest part — 44% of Americans say they would vote for this douche bag if he ends up being the Republican nominee.  Idiot Nation marches on.
