President Obama may be trailing Mitt Romney in the polls on who'd do a better job fixing the economy.We know how Obama would deal with aliens: He'd offer them a Path to Citizenship and give their leader an iPod preloaded with his speeches.
But if the Earth ever is attacked by hostile beings from another planet, a strong majority of voters believe Mr. Obama would be superior in dealing with the situation.
Then after Jeff Goldblum infiltrated the alien spaceship and blew it up, there would be pictures in Newsweek of Barry looking pensive in a White House situation room, showing the incredible courage he had in ordering Jeff to risk his life.
Later, anonymous sources in the administration would leak details of the computer code used to blow up the mothership and the plans of the secret alien fighter craft from Area 51 to Hollywood moviemakers to ensure accuracy in the blockbuster docudrama, presumably in return for a favorable depiction of the president.
I've seen some weird distractions from the main issue of this election, which is THE ECONOMY, STUPID, but this one takes the cake. "Well, maybe Obama couldn't balance a checkbook if you held a gun to his head, but wouldn't he be awesome against little green men and bug-eyed monsters?"
