Rick Santorum is trying to paint himself as the hero of the working class, and he got a big cheer Saturday when he blasted President Barack Obama during a conservative forum in Troy, Michigan.
"President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob," said Santorum, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination. "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."
Going to college, Santorum suggested, could lead to trouble.
"That's why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image," the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania said. "I want to create jobs so people can remake their children into their image, not his."
