    I realize that I do not typically have many nice things to say about politicians of any persuasion, but when I read this last night I actually thought maybe there was a little bit of decency left in a politician or two.

    Will Smith's kid asked Obama about aliens. And the president said ... | Blastr

    If this did in fact happen, that was a pretty cool way to deal with a kid. Rather than just shine him on, he took the time to deal with Jaden as a person.

    I wonder how other politicans would have handled this. Would Romney have taken the time to answer Jaden's question? How about Nancy Pelosi? Or would the words, "go away kid, I'm busy have been heard in the situation room?

    By the way, No, I am still not voting for him.

    If this "president" didn't believe in space aliens how could he have any faith in himself?

    Well, if you actually read the link, he neither confirmed nor denied the existence of extraterrestrials. ;)

    Who says he doesn't believe?

    This is a very basic and important difference between President Obama and what's his name.

    Our president actually cares about human beings.

    Probably because he is one, which is another difference.
