According to a new survey commissioned by the National Geographic Channel, nearly 65 percent of Americans believe President Obama is better equipped to handle an alien incursion from outer space than Mitt Romney.
Doesn’t sound like a campaign issue to you?
Well, 36 percent in the poll said they thought flying saucers are real, and 48 percent were not sure. That means 84 percent of the population thinks it’s at least conceivable that we are being visited by space aliens, and surely none of them would rule out the possibility that these creatures could get cranky.
Especially once they hear about the cuts Obama is making to NASA.
Now we see the full dividends being paid for Obama’s self-promotion of his “gutsy move” in knocking off Osama Bin Laden. If he would kill Bin Laden, the reasoning appears to be, he’d zap Evil ET too.
The poll, reported by USA Today, also suggests though that some people may recoil at any effort by Obama to harm the visitors.
Twenty two percent that if an alien knocked on the door, they would try to befriend him. This presupposes, of course, that an alien would knock.
