Santorum stands by 'snob' remark

Republican president candidate Rick Santorum defended his statement Saturday that President Obama was a "snob" because he has said he wants everyone in the country to have the ability to go college.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Santorum said he does not believe that going to college is the only way to become successful.

"What I've said is I want everyone to have the opportunity to go to college, or whatever other higher training skills," he said. "But it doesn't mean you have to go to a four-year college degree ... I think everyone should have the opportunity. It's about what's best for you."
