    I’m waiting for The Donald to assert that’s because he really is an alien.

    It’s the calmness thing he projects. I can’t imagine Obama in the grip of strong emotion – what does he look like when he’s angry? His eyebrows probably contract and his brow furrows or something, but other than that? He just doesn’t look like someone who freaks out about things.

    Mind you, it can also give the impression that he’s empathy-deficient too. Double-edged sword. But for all my disappointment in the past four years (and my anger over Libya) I still think we made the right choice over McCain.

    Obviously!

    We all know that Mitt Romney is one of the aliens. Or at least a vanguard cyborg sent here by the aliens. How else would one explain his personality?

    I, for one, accept our alien overlords.
    Cheers.

    I doubt it. If so, why hasn’t he (Obama) been successful in dealing with the Republican House.
