Snooki backs Obama, “cause he’s our president”

Congratulations to Snooki! In addition to expecting her first child, the “Jersey Shore” star officially knows the name of the President of the United States.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and best friend Jenni “JWoww” Farley were asked a series of “would you rather” questions. Most of these questions were brain-teasers such as whether they prefer N’SYNC or the Backstreet Boys, going to the gym or hitting the tanning bed, and whether they prefer Madonna over Lady Gaga. The girls, however, proved their smarts with one very difficult question.

When asked if she would choose Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, JWoww answered with a simple “Obama.” Snooki, however, took it to the next level of intelligence, and answered “Obama, ’cause he’s our president.” Girl has clearly got her act together. It looks like there is hope for her unborn son, after all.

This is a change of pace for the reality TV star, who used to have a beef with the president when he instated the tanning bed tax in 2010. Snooki declared her loyalty to 2008 presidential runner-up Sen. John McCain, saying, “McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning, because he’s pale and he would probably want to be tan.”

For the record, Snooki also prefers NYSNC, the gym, and Lady Gaga.
