OBAMA REFERS TO U.S. ARMED FORCES AS ‘MY MILITARY’; TWITTER USERS GO JUST A TAD BALLISTIC

Posted by   + Show Post

In case you missed it, President Obama referred to the United States armed forces as “my military” during a statement to the media regarding the Syrian crisis Friday.

“But as I’ve already said,” Obama noted, “I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options.”

And Twitter users went and got themselves into a bit of a twist:

Oh FFS, it *is* his military. He *is* the commander in chief. Sorry some folks can't accept that, but it's true.

As this is why the gun enthusiasts are extremely vocal- that militia is going to duke it out with Obama's military.

He's the commander in chief. It sure as hell is his military. 

Quoting Looking4Truth:

 He shouldn't have said "My military," since obviously it isn't his.  The military is there for all the people of the United States.  It is OUR military, not obama's.  I'm not at all surprised though that he claimed it as his own.  It figures.

The phrasing seems backwards, so I'm thinking he meant "our" military and "my" team. But, either way, not a big deal to me. Only the peeps who think he's trying to become a dictator should worry...it's all coming true!!! Run to your bunkers. Haha. I kid, I kid. :)
