Republican president candidate Rick Santorum defended his statement from 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.
