He was so busy having his romp with his intern that he lost the biscuit, the card with the codes for the nuclear weapons access, for several months. He had no idea where it was. So it could have fallen into some enemy hands or not been available if the U. S. needed to defend ourselves. That is the kind of careless President he was.

Actually, his aide lost the code to a briefcase (the "football") with the information needed to launch a nuclear attack. Had the code been found by someone, they would still need to get access to the briefcase to do anything potentially harmful.

Well, that's certainly an interesting bit of information. I always thought that it was kept in a safe place where the president could easily retrieve it if it became necessary for him to do so.

I completely agree. I don't think most people are aware of what was really going on, or NOT going on when he was President. He let America's defenses fall, and it had drastic consequences for the President who followed him, and for our country's citizens as a whole. And I think you knew what consequences I mean. Not that most people want to hear that. They would like to blame someone else.

We are so lucky that there wasn't some nuclear incident when any President was in office. You do know that nuclear codes do nothing to defend our country and everything to do with wiping out the other country while our nation is being wiped out?

I would think something like that would be in a safe with 3 people having to have a key to get in at the same time. Not laying around in an office or under a desk with an intern.
