I don't give much credibility into WND. I decided to fish around for images of his hands. Oddly enough, there is an unrelated website that looks like some sort of palm reading crap. Point being, they are not some whacko political website. Whacko for entirely a different reason
http://www.handresearch.com/thumbs/h...ama-thumbs.htm

I googled and found a higher resolution image of his left hand
Political Issues

Oddly enough, the ring in this image looks just like the image in the WND article. So I think the images of the ring in the article are accurate.

P.S....that's all I can find. I don't know enough about the alleged symbols to say whether or not the article's assertions are legit.

If there is any truth to this story, Fox will be all over it. Considering the source is basically the equivalent to Huffington Post, I wouldn't put much credibility into it. Looking at their history, they tried to run a similar story a few months ago using the ring as evidence he had another secret marriage before Michelle.

The plot thickens...

Political Issues

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/does...bed-in-arabic/

According to The Blaze:

-An old NYT article mentions that his wedding ring is an ornate one he bought in Indonesia.
-He's worn the ring, on his left ring finger, for 30 years for as long as he's been in college. This, of course, is years before his "Christian" conversion by Jeremiah Wright.
-Other students teased him for wearing it on his left ring finger.
-It appears that he converted his ring into a wedding ring when he married Michelle.

This raises a couple interesting questions:

-Why was he wearing it on his left ring finger while he was still single?
-Why did he convert it into a wedding ring?
-What normal woman would let a man do that?

Or did the Huffington Post just make that part up?

The internet sure makes it hard to go back and undo history, doesn't it?

I don't think anyone is disputing that he wears a ring.

The part I call B.S. on is that its a secret mooosahlum ring.

Yall are a riot!

My theory...

We know from Obama's author bio distributed by his print agent that he represented himself as born in Kenya. I think this was done as a way to present himself as more exotic than a kid who was born in Honolulu.

This ring is probably along the same lines. He probably picked it up from a Jakarta merchant for a couple of bucks and took to wearing it because a) it made him appear ever-so-multicultural which reinforced his self-written narrative and b) the cool squiggly characters on it were different and helped draw attention to himself. If the article is accurate, he wore it rather conspicuously during law school.

No, I don't think he's some kind of Manchurian Muslim, but I do think this ring fits into a pattern of behavior we've seen from the guy for the past couple of years.

Yeah, basically, he's a weirdo. And, we had enough idiots in 2008 who couldn't see it who elected him President.

I agree and I am not afraid to say it flat out,

A white man with Obama's shady background and lack of credentials would never have been elected to the office, he would have never gotten a step off the ground on the climb. He got there on "reverse racism" which is simply a politically correct version of racism.

Nope, he would only have been elected to senate for decades and decades (Byrd).

The point of my post was not to confirm that he wears a ring, dolt. The point was to compare the ring he wears with the ring in the OP. Sorry I couldn't get Big Bird to explain that point to you earlier.
