Washington (CNN) - President Obama is going ring-less.
Journalists in the East Room today for President's Obama's 8th full blown press conference noticed something different- President Obama's intricate, gold wedding band designed in Indonesia was conspicuously missing.
Gulp…Missing? Or something worse?
Nope. Getting repaired. The White House confirms that the ring, which was exchanged on President and Mrs. Obama's wedding day in October 1992, is getting a tune-up.
A spokesman from the White House would not discuss the extent of the repairs, or when it would return to its rightful owner.
Why would anyone consider this news? And why the before-the-break innuendo?
While I dislike obama and his wife, I would not wish marital problems on anyone. Let's just hope there is another answer.
I am totally against building a mosque at ground zero. I bet the plan is for the muslims to create an "ultimate" terror cell at the mosque at ground zero and for their "dream" would be to destroy the new "freedom tower" after its built like they did on 911. Beware!!
Wow who cares. All those important topics, why such a tabloid-dumbed down story like this?
Its not like he will be able to go out tonight and be mistaken for a single guy. Why is this news.
New would be Palin/Brackman pole dancing for young GOPers
OMG this is news???????????????????????
Wow, hard hitting political news CNN.
this means he must be a muslim blah blah blah
Oh just wait all the racits republicans with the pack leader Sarah and her side kick Glen will be talking for days about this now.
Media.... get a life!
hopefully he pawned it to pay back my tax dollars for all that this pig has wasted on vacations. Obama I hope Dems loose big and you pay the price by having every veto overridden with the new republican contract with America.
Talk about a slow news day.
My goodness! Imagine that. The President is not wearing his ring because it's being revamped.
Wow! Is this newsworthy or what?
CNN and others sound like faux news. Half the story or speech to make it sound deliciously like nothing!
SO what, please dont go there, the media, the media always looking for trouble the media is like satan himself these Journalists should keep a eye on their wife please.
So if your WH reporter is sizing up the President's jewelry, who covered the speech?
We all could lived without this one.
it's a muslim socialist death ring out getting sprinkled with satan juice.
Because I just needed to know this.
Maybe he didn't want to wear it. No one said you have to keep your ring on your hand all the time. Unlike "Family Values" Republicans, Obama knows how to have his ring off and stay a committed husband to ONE woman.
Vera Baker knows!
Not even noteworthy, yet alone newsworthy...CNN, get a life!
When he starts wearing it again it will be in his nose.(ha !ha!)
The press secretary should have been known that was going to come up and had a stand by ring for him, whether it be just as elaborate or a plain gold band.

"BTW, to i d i o t Randolph Carter–we won in Iraq and Kuwait, but I suppose America Laster's like you only want us to lose all the time."
We won in Kuwait? And Saddam Hussein was never a problem after the first war for oil. Yessir, we showed him. We won in Iraq? Their country's trashed, troops and civilians are still getting killed every day and the Chinese got the oil contracts. Nice try, Jingocephus. Have a nice day! Hua!!
OMG CNN !!!!!!!!!!!!
There was time when CNN really was "the most respected name in news" now you guys sensationalize everything about the President like a sleezy tabloid magazine. Alot of what you report on about President Obama is really disrespectful – like this story that has been written in such a way as to make it seem as if he is hiding something or having problems in his marriage. BUTT OUT OF THE MAN'S PERSONAL LIFE.
My wedding ring became worn after many years of wearing it and had to be repaired. What is the big deal in the case of the President;s ring, repairs sometimes become necessary. For the love of God please get back to reporting on real news.
what y'all try to say?
