Are you smart?

If you are smart, according to Rick Santorum,  you will never be on our side, that is, for American Values. What he is saying that if you are smart you will not vote for Romney/Ryan ~ two other American Value speakers. I guess he is telling citizens only dumb people will be, well, dumb enough to vote for them. Gee whiz.

The full quote:

We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country. We will never have the elite smart people on our side, because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. So our colleges and universities, they're not going to be on our side. The conservative movement will always be - and that's why we founded Patriot Voices - the basic premise of America and American values will always be sustained through two institutions, the church and the family.

I suppose Santorum is qualifying his statement with the word elite. I guess ordinary smart people do not count in his assessment of who will be on their side. I guess the reason Romney believes only those who can afford it should get a college education least poor, smart children are corrupted by our institutions of higher learning.

Whatever. The speech is a slap in the face of more than a few United States citizens.
