WASHINGTON – At a press conference on Tuesday, President Barack Obama dismissed public concerns over the long-term impact of damage to Japan’s Fukishima reactor as well as the safety of U.S. nuclear facilities, declaring that “nukulur power will remain on the table.”

Following the President’s statement, White House officials defended the President’s embrace of “nukulur,” a pronunciation first popularized by former President George W. Bush, and whose use became a badge of honor among conservatives. “The President’s use of ‘nukulur’ is consistent with his conciliatory approach overall,” according to one official, “This is completely in line with his continuation of corporate tax breaks and the denial of habeas corpus, which were hallmarks of the previous administration.” He added “And we haven’t heard any complaints about that.”
