Let’s forget about health care for a split second and return to foreign policy: in the event of an alien invasion, who would you want to be leading the country? According to a National Geographic–sponsored survey, 65 percent of 1,114 respondents think Obama would be a better leader than Romney if, say, the movie Independence Day became a real-life scenario. It’s an issue that concerns some 79 percent of Americans, who think the U.S. government has kept information about UFOs secret, according to the survey. The survey also found that 36 percent of Americans think UFOs exist, and 11 percent are convinced they’ve seen one.
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
