Obama responds to Santorum’s ‘snob’ jab?

Washington (CNN) – The White House repeatedly maintains President Barack Obama isn’t monitoring the day-to-day rhetoric Republicans fire at him on the campaign trail. But the president all but directly responded to Rick Santorum’s latest jab.

Over the weekend, during which the former Pennsylvania senator called Obama a “snob” for suggesting all young Americans should to go to college, Santorum told supporters in Michigan, “Oh, I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image. I want to create jobs so people can remake their children into their image, not his.”
