Throughout the 2012 Presidential Race, a lot of issues will be thrown at the candidates: immigration, health care, the failing economy, gay rights, etc. While imperative to the campaign trails of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, one hot button issue has been brought up by National Geographic that has yet to be discussed from the pulpit: an alien invasion.
No, Arizona, for once this topic is not about you so calm down. We're talking about a full-blown smackdown from our extraterrestrial brethren. Gigantic motherships swooping in on Earth and systematically wiping out the human race, possibly enslaving the rest. Although the only people I'd want to call would be Bill Pullman, Will Smith, and Jeff Goldblum, we would have to turn to our president for guidance. So who do we want manning the Oval Office during such a crisis?
According to the survey NatGeo conducted for their new series, "Chasing UFOs," nearly 65% of the participants chose current Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama as their leader against an alien invasion. He destroyed his opponent across the board, gaining majority support from men (61%), women (68%), and ages 18 to 64 (68%). Did Mitt win anything? Yes and no; the senior citizen vote was split 50/50 between Romney and Obama.
I am with Obama every day of the week and twice on Sundays. I'm sure Mitt would strive for peace, then begin prepping for battle, only to flip-flop back and forth between the two until he's driven to alcohol and shatters his Mormon image. Eventually, he'd just offer aliens the poor and disadvantaged as necessary sacrifices for the greater good.
But Barack? Homie don't play that. The moment an alien zapped a peace dove out of the sky, Obama would have the fighter jets he already scrambled fly in from the mountains and demolish all the aliens. Barack is definitely prepared for an invasion.
Like I said, the most important political issue for these candidates isn't whether or not healthcare should be mandated, but what would you do in case motherlicking aliens touched down on Earth? Obama gets my vote, what about you?
Barack or Mitt? Sound off.
