But my mom's a very unusual person for her time. She's someone who did get a college education in the 1930s, and was a nurse, and got a graduate degree, even, as a nurse, and worked full time. And when she married my dad, they worked together at the Veterans Administration. That's where they met, right after the war. And later on, they had me and the rest of the family, my brother and sister, and my mom continued to work. She worked all of my childhood years. She balanced time, as my dad did, working different schedules, and she was a very unusual person at that time. She was a professional who actually made more money than her husband.

President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob.

The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness.
-From his book It Takes a Family:Conservatism and the Common Good (2005)
He is a hypocrite. He also has three post high school degrees; a Bachelor of Arts (Political Science) from the Pennsylvania State University (1980), a Master of Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh (1981), and a Juris Doctor (Law degree) from the Dickinson School of Law (1986). His wife has two degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Duquesne University and a law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law (1990). She also worked as a lawyer before she married Santorum.
I can accept a person being passionate about his or her religion as long as they do not force their beliefs on me but what I won't accept is a hypocrite. Before last night he was anti-feminists and anti-college but now all of a sudden he is praising his feminist mother and her college degree. What this man said last night shows he is willing to lie to get what he wants, which is the Republican nomination, even if what he is saying is in direct conflict with what he truly believes.
