Obama’s Obscure Pronunciation of “Nuclear” breaks with Tradition

I thought I would start the week with some humor.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In what some are calling the boldest move of his Presidency, Barack Obama broke with a time-honored tradition observed by several US Presidents including George W. Bush by pronouncing the word “nuclear” as it appears in the dictionary.

Announcing the new weapons pact with Russia today, Mr. Obama repeatedly pronounced the word “nuclear” in a way that has rarely been used by a U.S. President since Jimmy Carter was in the White House.

But according to Davis Logsdon, a professor of international relations at the University of Minnesota, Mr. Obama’s pronunciation of “nuclear” may have been key to the diplomatic breakthrough: “The Russians have heard Presidents pronounce it “nucular” for so long, they may have thought he was offering something new.”
