Good to know that we have mature, responsible adults holding on to our country's nuclear codes. I'm sure Obama has left his card at the golf course a few times.
Reported by ABC:
At one point during the Clinton administration, the codes were actually missing for months. That's a big deal -- a gargantuan deal.[...]
Patterson was one of the men who carried the football, and he says it was literally the morning after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke that he made a routine request of the president to present the card so that he could swap it out for an updated version.
"He thought he just placed them upstairs," Patterson recalled. "We called upstairs, we started a search around the White House for the codes, and he finally confessed that he in fact misplaced them. He couldn't recall when he had last seen them."
