65 percent of Americans say Obama better suited to handle alien invasion than Romney

65 percent of Americans say Obama better suited to handle alien invasion than Romney By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 1 hr 59 mins ago

In the event that Bill Pullman isn't available, two-thirds of respondents to a new survey say that President Barack Obama would be better suited to handle an alien invasion than presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

"We wanted the pulse on people's opinions," said Brad Dancer, senior vice president of research and digital media for National Geographic, who conducted the survey for the new series "Chasing UFOs." "We wanted to get a sense of how Americans view UFOs, what people believe and how mainstream pop culture may or may not be playing into their opinions on it."

Nearly 65 percent of respondents said Obama would be better suited to handle a theoretical alien invasion than Romney.

In fact, Obama trumped Romney across the board, winning a majority of support from women (68 percent), men (61 percent) and those aged 18 to 64 (68 percent).

Romney's strongest bracket was with senior citizens, where he split the vote with Obama at 50 percent each.

During a May visit to the White House by the actor Will Smith and his family, Obama was quizzed by Smith's 13-year-old son, Jaden, about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. In an interview with the BBC, Smith recounted Obama's reaction to his son:

Well this makes all the sense in the world, 0bama would bow, ask for their terms of surrender, and offer them anything they wanted.

Obama would handle an alien invasion by leading it.

Romney would handle an alien invasion by declaring that the Mormon self proclaimed prophet Joseph Smith was correct when he said there was no question the moon was inhabited. "Who can tell us of the inhabitants of this little planet that shines of an evening, called the moon? When we view its face we may see what is termed "the man in the moon," and what some philosophers declare are the shadows of mountains. But these sayings are very vague, and amount to nothing; and when you inquire about the inhabitants of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the most ignorant of their fellows. So it is with regard to the inhabitants of the sun. Do you think it is inhabited? I rather think it is. Do you think there is any life there? No question of it; it was not made in vain. It was made to give light to those who dwell upon it, and to other planets; and so will this earth when it is celestialized" (Journal of Discourses 13:271).

We're doomed either way we go.

Repel aliens, vote Virgil Goode.

With his background, I would have to go with Mitt Romney on who could best handle a visitation from visitors from another solar system.

This is something that conspiracy freaks will like.

If Obama (being the narcisist that he is) thinks he is going to lose the election, and a government coverup of UFOs is taking place ala. X-files. He could potentially uncover ALL of it and use it as a tool to get re-elected.

That is if the Potus is informed of such things and they foolishly give the POTUS enough evidence of it’s supposed existance.

If there is a government coverup of UFOs, then why hasn’t Obama used it for his political advantage?

He could drop the bombshell and then say “I need another term to unravel all this coverup stuff” and he would get re-elected...

But if he tried how far would he get before getting “JFK’ed” by some governmental organization like the CIA/Shadow Ops?

One must always remember that Bigfoot and UFOs are inextricably intertwined.

Bigfoot(s) are just Alien Pets that Dad 'forgot' about when he flew off in the Family Mobile Home.

Luckily, several visitors have 'accidentally' lost a few pets (is it because they STINK REALLY BAD when they get wet?), so some have managed to 'mate'. They have a low survival rate because even the adults are prone to wandering off and getting lost.

Yep. He’ll tell them where to line up and cut in line to suck up any benefits are out there to be had. Then he’ll raise the taxes on the “rich” in the name of fairness.

You came close. However, Bigfoot pilots UFO”s. That fact is why no one ever finds a Bigfoot body; for when a Bigfoot dies on earth the remaining Bigfoot crew picks them up and whisks them back to Bolok for burial.

Is it because, if in the event of an alien invasion, we’re more willing to sacrifice Obama than Romney?

Let's see... the economy is in the toilet, people can't find work. The price of gas is way too high. More and more are joining the welfare rolls. We have a president who talks out of his ass and generally b.s.'s about everything. And THIS is what the press thinks it is important to write about? If there are any aliens out there, please come and invade us. I am sure the resulting carnage and devastation would be an improvement.

Most people know that Obama is an alien himself and other aliens would be more comfortable speaking with him then an American.

Seeing Jack Nicholson pictured upthread, I am also put in mind of another film of his, As Good As It Gets. And a particular line of dialogue concerning "reason and accountability" which seems appropriate, given your question.

I think that the level of intellect of Americans is at an all time low.

Also, the level of immaturity.

I am always appalled when I bump into ‘made for TV’ programming while I am looking for something else.

It reminds me of the reallllly bad movies and TV programs in the 70’s.

The dialogue is ALWAYS wise-a$#, childish, smart-alek banter and the actors are ALWAYS a kind of second or third hand version of what some Hollywood producer thinks is ‘hip’ THIS WEEK!

Of course if you ever have occasion to talk to a young person or over hear their conversations, they ape all this BS behavior and speech. They conduct their lives and personal relationships at this level. We are in for it from THIS generation! All idiots
