Sometimes, a White House press conference can be a chance for a president to take some weight off his shoulders … but weight off his fingers?
Eagle-eyed reporters noticed that President Barack Obama wasn’t sporting his wedding ring during Friday’s White House press conference.
“big to-do over potus not wearing his wedding ring today,” Tweeted The Hill’s Sam Youngman, who was at the presser.
Obama’s wedding band is “an intricate gold design from Indonesia, where he had lived as a boy,” the New York Times reported in 2009.
interesting e-mail on the subject, for the record snopes says its bogus. although I think he harbours an afinity for and love for islam I dont know either way.
just another piece making up the puzzle. Wedding ring is in for repair Since when does a plain wedding band need repairs, along with your watch, for a whole month? Another piece falls into place. In a press conference last week Obama was not wearing his wedding ring nor was he wearing his watch. When noticed, his staff said his ring was out for repairs. No reason was given for the missing watch. So it’s just a coincidence that Muslims are forbidden from wearing jewelry during the month of Ramadan Can’t possibly be that, because although he hasn’t gone to a Christian church service since entering the White House, we know he’s a committed Christian “cause he said so during his campaign!” ………..And I’ve got a bridge to nowhere to sell you also. This is the same president that spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii to avoid religious obligations as PRESIDENT at the White House. His children do not receive Christmas presents. Let’s just face the facts and quit trying to distort the truth, we have a Muslim for president in the White House, and he has no knowledge of American history. Ramadan began Monday, August 01, 2011 and ends Tuesday, August 30, 2011. keep an eye out for the ring reappearance after ramadan…..
