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:

Of course. “O” IS an alien
Heck, Obama would just give them all amnesty.
So now, in addition to Lincoln The Vampire Hunter, we can have Obama The Extraterrestrial Greeter.
That is exactly what I was thinking. They would get all the benefits of the American Dream without having to push a pencil.
Am I the only person that though this was initially about Mexicans?
Well this makes all the sense in the world, 0bama would bow, ask for their terms of surrender, and offer them anything they wanted.
Like Obama’s doing so well with the illegal alien invasion from Mexico.
Beat me to it...guess the ending to that story should be rather than ET call home, it should be BO go home.
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.
As for me - he is welcome to try handling this ...
Heck yes, he married one didn't he?
Romney would think they were there from Kolob to take him home...
And his EPA is best suited to regulate unicorn farts.
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?
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.
Where did they take this poll - a crack house?
America’s first African president knows a great deal about aliens.
Only if they land here:
Hell, he’d give them amnesty, too.
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.
Shoot. Saw someone already said that. I should know that other Freepers are cleverer and quicker than I. :D
Is it because, if in the event of an alien invasion, we’re more willing to sacrifice Obama than Romney?
Nearly 65 percent of respondents were stoned or drunk,result expected.
Yes, Obama would put down both a welcome mat and a red carpet to greet the invaders.
You know he’d bow...
Were the poll statistics controlled for idiocy? What sort of subsample of the population bothers to answer a poll question like this?
Most people know that Obama is an alien himself and other aliens would be more comfortable speaking with him then an American.
Now what does that tell you?
Yes. FINALLY a reason to vote for him! /s/
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.
If they mean Obama standing at the border with milk and cookies, well, then YES!
His home planet is Uranus.
Yeah because they know that Romney would welcome them as “brothers”.
Stupid poll; Stupid question.
And, we should care because.......??????
Yep, whenever I want to know what’s going on in America, I check the left-wing liars at Yahooo!
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
And they aren't very good at it.
