Was Barack Obama married in college?

Photos show ring on left hand before he was wed to Michelle

Exhibit 1: Obama with grandparents, Central Park, New York City

Was Barack Obama married when he attended college?

If not, then why do photographs of him at Occidental College and in New York City in the years when he was supposed to have attended Columbia University show him wearing a ring on the ring finger of his left hand?

First, consider the photograph of Obama taken with his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, on a park bench in front of Central Park, most likely along Fifth Avenue, as seen in Exhibit 1

Watch the video of Sheriff Arpaio’s Tuesday press conference on Obama’s eligibility. When you sign up for access, you’ll receive a copy of the official press release distributed at the conference.

The close-up in Exhibit 2 makes the wedding ring clearer:

Photos of Obama at Columbia clearly show ring

The ring is much clearer in photographs of Obama taken by Lisa Jack at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Two of Jack’s photographs, which were published by Time after the 2008 election, clearly show Obama with a ring on the ring finger of his left hand.

Exhibits 3 and 4 show the ring in one of Jack’s photos. Exhibit 3: Lisa Jack photo of Obama at Occidental College Exhibit 4: Close-up, Lisa Jack photo of Obama at Occidental College.

If he was, like everything else he shortcuts, I’ll bet he didn’t bother to get a divorce.

I think that while he was experimenting with various drugs he may also have dabbled in homosexuality,perhaps he had a boyfriend?

It was likely just a friendship ring his boyfriend gave him. I doubt he was married then. Will we ever get passed these silly, racist conspiracy theories?

Seems too big to be a wedding band. Could be a Class ring.

You couldn't marry a dude back then, No marriage, no divorce.

Appologies to self respecting gay freepers.

People from different (ahem) cultures wear wedding rings on different fingers/ hands. I once was in Kazakhstan as a younger woman. Men followed me everywhere, and even banged on my hotel room door all night.

Finally a dear Kazakh lady told me that wearing a ring on your left ring finger means you are open and willing.

Barack Obama was a drugged up, kneepaded homosexual, communist, American hater before it was cool!

I’m not sure I believe it means much. It could have been a ring he was gifted and it was too small or too large and wore it on the finger that fit best. A guy in college isn’t likely may not bother to have a ring sized. It may have been an inexpensive ring and not worth sizing.

Good catch, I never noticed the ring at all.

The conclusion that the ring meant he was married is totally unwarranted.

People are free to wear any kind of ring on any finger for any reason.

What means a certain thing to you or me can mean something entirely different to another.

I agree the ring is fit subject for interest and speculation.

But to headline it, “Was he married?” is just a bridge way too far.

The fact that democrats are liars and scammers doesn’t seem to matter to you... that’s odd. Can you explain ‘what’ does matter?

That photo? Probably a composite. Notice Grandpa's alleged left hand on Obama's shoulder. It is a physical impossibilty given the position of Grandpa's shoulder and the length of his arm.

Danes and Norwegians wear them on the right hand. Swedes on the left.

That’s actually slandering whores, since she was waaaay below that filth, garbage and trash level.

ANSWER: No, not officially. Gay marriages were not recognized in those days.

What matters is a practical way out of this mess..
I don’t see it.. America may have been dumbed down that much...

Succession maybe... of a few States.. SHort of Civil War I see no bright pathway...
