Chris Christie: Santorum Claim About Obama ‘Over The Line’

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Mitt Romney surrogate, disagreed with Rick Santorum’s characterization of President Obama as a “snob” for saying he wants all Americans to be able to go to college.

“I think we should aspire to let every child reach his maximum — or her maximum — potential,” Christie said Sunday on CBS’ Face The Nation. “And if Senator Santorum is against that, then I don’t think that makes any sense. And I certainly don’t think the President’s a snob for saying that. I think that’s probably over the line.”

He later added: “Rick Santorum’s not going to be the nominee.”
