    I clicked on it thinking it was going to be about illegal aliens. I was kind of surprised when I saw the title! :p
    But I think that Obama would probably better suited to handle and alien invasion. I feel like Romney would just try to wage war.

    Romney doesn't have to worry much.

    He IS an alien.

    :eek:

    It would not matter who was president, the aliens would just destroy us in seconds.

    I like how they photoshopped him to look like a clip from the twilight zone:D. Prior to clicking on the link I wondered if it would be an article regarding illegal immigration paired to a quirky thread title.

    It could be a peaceful invasion.
    Maybe they just want friends?
    Being so far out in space can get kind of lonely.

    The Aliens have heard that Obama has killed:

    Saddam Hussein
    Osama Bin Ladin
    Gaddafi

    They don't want Obama's body count to start extending beyond the Milky Way.

    Well it wouldn't really be an invasion if it was peaceful.

    That would just be "contact".

    whatever, it's semantics. But invasion has the connotation of coming to your house and wrecking your stuff

    Except that a war needs at least two sides. In reality any cilvilization that has mastered interstellar travel is going to be, well, light years ahead of us technologically. We wouldn't stand a chance!

    I'm not saying we would. But it would be what we consider an act of war for sure. Just because they would destroy us doesn't mean it would be any less of such an act.

    I was just kidding. ;)
    If aliens invaded and we declared war on them, we would definitely lose.

    Saddam Hussein was executed in 2006. Two years before Obama took office. And Gadaffi was killed by Libyan rebels.

    just sayin ;)

    And your post was what? A literary masterpiece? LOL

    Lighten up and stop being so dreary on things. Sometimes stuff is just done in fun. How boring life would be if everything was serious all the time.

    Only if they were illegal aliens. Then Obama would give them all green cards and free healthcare.

    Romney meanwhile would pretend he never lived on this planet and had planned all along to be from a completely different planet somewhere over....there *waves vaguely*

    In the case of an invasion, Obama would be Ripley, finding a way to defeat the alien.

    Romney would be the Brits in Torchwood: Children of Earth, agreeing to consign 10% of our kids to a life of horror on an alien world, just to make the monsters go away and leave the rest of us alone.

    Perhaps, but that assumes that the different strands of their technology have advanced at the same rate. Their space travel may be way ahead of us, but they may be behind us in other areas such as weaponry.

    If an alien species is unused to conflict and warfare they may not be much more advanced in this area than pointy sticks and and vaguely threatening hand (or tentacle) gestures, while in contrast as a species one of the things we're unfortunately very talented at is killing things.

    Anyway, we're better off at dealing with alien invasion here in Englandshire than in the States. You may have Obama but we have the Doctor. ;)

    But rockets and missile technology is closely interconnected for obvious reasons. And besides if they wanted us dead all they would really have to do is direct some serious mass, such asteroids, at the planet and let gravity most of the work. No need to get their people in harms way.

    I've heard it is a great way to spread democracy.
