  1. LOL!
    As we watched I was also wondering how many parent’s are out there right now, having to answer or address their kid’s on the correct pronounciation of the word ‘nuclear’. It’s possible that he has said enough times his way so that it has now become OK in America to say nook-yu-ler.
    I wonder if the spelling will change?

  2. Oh, excuse me, I guess that absolutely everything that comes out of your mouth is pronounced correctly. Bush has his quirks but at least he takes stands and acts to back up his stands. If Kerry were there, he’d be asking France and Canada what to do before he even thought of acting (BTW – France and Canada’s answer for everything is to raise the taxes).

  3. This is great! We are talking about the President of the United States of America.

  4. Surely to God someone has coached on Bush the correct way to pronounce ‘nuclear’. My guess is he’s just being his typical bull-headed self and is refusing to say the word correctly.

  5. Yeah. I hate how he mangles “subliminal” too. “Sublinial,” indeed.

  6. LOL yeah… Bush takes stands alright. The problem is that not only does he butcher his native language, but he’s also a world-class Flip-Flopper. Take Osama bin Laden for example. Bush can’t decide whether catching Osama is “our Number One priority and we will not rest until we find him” (Sept. 13, 2001) or “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and I really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority” (March 13, 2002).

  8. My husband claims he’s encouraged to pronounce it that way because it makes him more “folksy”.
    My guess is that most of the people who voted for him don’t KNOW he’s mispronouncing it, and of course, his keepers don’t care about the rest of us!
