Well, let’s cancel the election in this case. And by alien, they don’t mean the folks pouring in from Mexico. Who knows, maybe it’s the ears.

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).

    Obama could not handle an oil spill, He can’t work with Congress, his forign policies have made us a laughing stock with both China and Russia publically threatening us, (not being reported.) You can’t handle an alien invasion by printing money, raising taxes, creating debt, expanding welfare, or by blaming everybody else for your problems, Thumbs down on Obama.

    So the tards that watch Chasing UFOs, complete with the commercial that would embarrass LARPers, are solidly behind the Dear Leader. Good to know.

    My take on this was that these people could have chased storms, since the pre-requisite was being too stupid to come in when it’s raining, but they were afraid that in doing so they might actually be of use to someone, somewhere.
