I guess at least you didn't call me a dick and tell me to go **** myself a couple more times, eh?
Flips speaks the truth. Even though you simply presented the graph "without commentary", it's obvious what those who are pointing to such statistics are trying to insinuate (yes, I've seen it on Facebook as well).
....and believe me, I'm not trying to stand up for Republicans (or any political party for that matter).
If it is true that Romney got a higher percentage of college educated people than Obama did....wow. That adds an extra layer of dickishness to that chart.
I'm bored, so I'll do that with CNBC's best/worst states for business:
Texas - Romney
Utah - Romney
Virginia - Obama
North Carolina - Romney
North Dakota - Romney
Nebraska - Romney
South Dakota - Romney
Colorado - Obama
Georgia - Romney
Wyoming - Romney
New Jersey - Obama
Louisiana - Romney
Delaware - Obama
Connecticut - Obama
Nevada - Obama
Mississippi - Romney
Alaska - Romney
West Virginia - Romney
Hawaii - Obama
Rhode Island - Obama
Not really much you can say about states with poorer business standings in terms of preference. Those with a stronger business presence as determined by CNBC voted in favor of Romney. That, however, shouldn't really be much of a surprise considering the two candidates' economic policies.
Please tell me how this is an accurate description of the education voting association, when college grads voted more for Romney?

It took me 5 years to get a degree and I hated every second of school but I went through it because there's this ridiculous notion that you're not smart if you don't have a bachelor's degree. Unless you've been through 4 years of some stupid ******** busy work, where you memorized answers and slapped them on a test sheet, then somehow your opinion isn't as valid as another's?
Some of the stupidest people I know have college degrees... a lot of them are jersey shore girls who got through college because it's a total joke and now i'm supposed to respect their retarded opinions over someone who is brilliant but couldn't afford to drop 100k on a lousy piece of paper?
I could just as easily say the states with the best "education" went Obama because the educational system is run by a bunch of people who have never worked in the private sector, got teaching degrees through largely liberal schools, and don't know the first thing about conservatism or free markets.
This entire thing is totally relative and absolutely childish.
