Majority of Americans Think Obama Is Better Suited To Handle an Alien Invasion

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the lock-and-load dept.

Sci-Fi 305

Geoffrey.landis writes "At last, a public opinion poll that gets the opinions of ordinary Americans on the issues that matter! Apparently, two thirds of Americans polled think that Barack Obama is better suited to defend against an alien invasion than Mitt Romney, according to a survey from National Geographic Channel, done to tout their upcoming TV series 'chasing UFOs'. In follow-up questioning, Americans would rather call on the Hulk (21%) than either Batman (12%) or Spiderman (8%) to save the day. No word on which candidate is most fit to defend America against shambling hordes of undead seeking to destroy civilization in the zombie apocalypse (perhaps that will be brought out in the debates)." The real question of course is how Obama would handle Galactus.

Yeah It Was in that Last Debate on ONN (5, Funny)

eldavojohn (898314) | more than 2 years ago | (#40473547)

Mediator: First I ask the former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, how would you handle an alien invasion?
Mitt Romney: Simple, I'd shoot them.
Mediator: And to you, Mr. President, how would you handle an alien invasion?
Barack Obama: *pauses* Instead of shooting where they are ... *even longer pause* .. I would shoot at where they are going to be.
Crowd: *breaks out in rapturous applause*
Mitt Romney: Oh, come on, of course that's what I meant as well. I mean, I'd probably have the military figure all that out or pay someone in rubies or chickens or beads or whatever the hell it is you poor people are spending at Wal-Mart these days.
Crowd: *boos loudly*
Crowd Member #1: Oh, that Romney, I don't like him. I don't like him at all.
Crowd Member #2: I've never seen a Mormon kill anyone -- let alone an alien. Have you?
Crowd Member #3: I'd bet all my Wal-Mart rubies he doesn't win.

NatGeo channel's really gone downhill (4, Insightful)

This used to be one of my favorite channels. Along with "Wild" Discovery, History, Scifi, and Animal. The last one's not too bad, but NatGeo and the others have turned-into reality shows.

Yeah I know. Complain, complain. Well I can't help if all these channels start looking alike, instead of their original mission. NOW I spend most of my time watching the free broadcast channels: RetroTV, ThisTV, AntennaTV..... they are what AMC and TVland used to be. (Though it's probably only a matter of time til they jump-the-shark and start inserting reality shows.)

Well, let's not be too hasty now. I mean, what if they did a crossover where some of the animals from NatGeo join the casts of the other channel reality shows? I'd like to see a grizzly bear mix things up a bit on the Jersey Shore. Especially with those night vision cameras they have in the rooms. I mean, the "people" on those shows are already behaving pretty much like bonobo chimps.

They ARE bonobo chimps. The channels have been doing these wildlife crossovers for years! (After Pink and The Brain retired from starring in cartoons, they went on to scriptwrite for CSPAN. The Family Guy is actually directed by Flipper the dophin. Fox News is not named such by accident.)

It seems that reality tv shows are the cheapest programming you can make.

"Actors" that are just amazed they are on television and if you tell them they will get paid even half as much again as their current yearly salary they start humping the programming directors leg.

Meanwhile, the big, classically trained in NYC, celebrity actors bitch about the wrong color M&Ms in their custom trailers and just when does their salary go to 1 million dollars per episode.

No big loss to me. It's not like I was that into television in the first place. I'll miss the sci-fi shows and documentaries, but that will just make want to watch the documentaries on Netflix even more.

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#40473803)

From TFA

Moreover, most citizens would not mind a minor alien invasion, because they expect these space-age visitors to be friendly--like the lovable character depicted in Steven Spielberg's popular film "E.T."

So yeah, Democrats are stereotyped as little Nevilles who'd sooner open a dialog with Hitler than shoot anyone; Republicans as drunken cowboys who'd sooner shoot Ghandi's face off than discuss why beef tastes good, ergo he's a moronic stinking hippy.

If you think the aliens are friendly, of course you'll want Obama; conversely if most people thought the aliens would be hostile, you bet your ass they'd want Romney.

It's ok; I would probably side with you guys. A lot of us have gone native. And you really are a lot further along than you think. For example, the same technology you use for DLP televisions could be used to create rapidly oscillating microscopic mirrors to generate virtual particles. With a bit of tuning and using lasers for selection/detection, you could use them to pull up wormholes out of the quantum foam (the trick is stabilizing them with negative matter. But wormholes already have negative curvature and thus are negative matter, so you can use the rejected ones to "feed" the one you want to select).

Oops; I'm rambling. Anyway, the point is that you guys almost have Q-drive, with smaller cores than anything the rest of the galaxy can offer. That and BBQ pretty much means you guys don't have to worry about any kind of extinction attacks. When the aliens arrive, send them to Texas and for Great Maker's sake don't offer them chili with beans in it; you have no idea how offensive that is.

It really was like so many videos I have seen. A saucer shaped object, no wings, going through the air at constant speed, "quietly", "accompanied by two jet fighters on either side going about twice as fast as it, approx 2-5 thousand feed off the ground. The UFO may or may not have been flying quietly because the jets were pretty loud themselves.

Why did they waste precious resources conducting this survey? Most Democrats think Mitt Romney himself to be a humanoid android sent from the Gamma quadrant in sector six by the richest 0.001% of the universe to alter the history. So he is them, he is no good protecting us from them.

Future Fake Alien Invasion Repelled By Fake SEALS? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#40474061)

So during the olympics or the next superbowl, can we expect a faked alien invasion to be repelled by fake SEALS?

Couple this with a still image of important people staring seriously at a screen as if it were real?

Would the alien 'peace treaty' become botched in public so it has to be redone behind closed doors without the public witnessing it?

We're being blanketed via media with aliens, vampires, and anything occult, it's just a matter of time before a 'false' delusion is staged.

When it comes to spiritual matters:

Just remember, kneel before God in the white light, don't let the moment pass, when the red light comes and you don't repent, you lose. The keys to this symbolism is throughout occult popular music and movies today, one example being the Pink Floyd cover, Darkside of The Moon, illustrating a false illumination and change.

Scary that its already happening.

Of course, the truth is that of the population willing to respond to a survey about Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, the Hulk, Spiderman, and alien invasions, probably two-thirds secretly hope Bruce Banner gets elected by write-in vote.

Obama's real name is... (0)

Confining Aliens coming to the US (0)

is silly. They would be interested in the whole Earth, not just one country. What if all children under 10 suddenly disappeared from the whole planet, as well as millions of adults? Humans in general and governments in particular would most likely assume a massive alien abduction. What if despite the most advanced technological searches, not the slightest trace of the whereabouts of all these missing people nor any aliens could be found? Such a worldwide disappearance is predicted to happen someday according to 1 Thessalonians 4:16–18 in the Bible. Efforts to find alien life in the universe, such as SETI, are confined to our time–space dimensions. What if there really are supernatural beings that are beyond and behind our present time–limited existence?

Misleading summary (2)

The summary doesn't make it totally clear that people would prefer the Hulk rescue them from aliens, not just rescue them in general. It's an important distinction because for the general case, you don't want to have to rely on the Hulk to save you from ANYTHING, because he'll likely destroy all of your property and probably accidentally (or purposefully!) kill you in the process.

Additionally, where's Superman, our home grown invincible alien immigrant, in all this? Has he really fallen so far in public consciousness?
