he is equally committed to ensuring the every Pennsylvanian has access to higher education.
Rick Santorum supports increased funding for Pell Grants, and since 2001 funding for the Pell Grant program has increased by 47 percent. Pennsylvania students have benefited tremendously from Pell Grants; providing a college education for our state's youth who otherwise might not be able to afford one.

People who place so much emphasis on going to college to be "educated" are just mindless dimwits who label themselves as "intellectuals" because they read a few chapters from assigned text books. True intellectuals seek out information on their own and don't need politically-motivated instructors lecturing at them.
You're too afraid to admit that Obama's intelligence bothers you.
Under water grottos, caverns
Filled with apes
That eat figs.
Stepping on the figs
That the apes
Eat, they crunch.
The apes howl, bare
Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the
Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.

Sounds like Rick is pandering to his audiences lately, in this case he is trying to create a further separation of African Americans, that do not or can't relate to Obama by using demographics of where he may happen to be at the time. It is deplorable that he would use statistical data and make generalized statements based on the demographic he is talking to to gain support. Perhaps next he will say, "Eat all the fried foods you want Alabama" since it is number one in stroke. Perhaps in Arizona he will say "Dui's are offensive to the working class" since Arizona is number one in alcoholism. It has become apparent to intelligent people he needs to shut his mouth if he wants to stay in the race, otherwise he is going to keep coming off as a Mr Random statement insane candidate.

Between this idiotic "college is for snobs" comment and his JFK "puke" comment, he just cost himself the primaries in AZ and Michigan.
