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:

 LOL, yelling "I am exercising my 2nd Amendment Rights",  all the while.

What a riot.

Quoting Sisteract:

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

Of all the dumb shit to get mad about...

I guess "Commander in Chief" is just a cute saying then? Yes it's "our" military and thus, also "his."

Quoting Luvnlogic:

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. :)

 probably My military leaders or team

But let them freak out...it's quite amusing

Why do people make a big deal out of nothing? Seems pretty common nowadays.

Call me crazy...i dont care. I dont like it if he is calling it his military. I believe it is ours. They protect our country which includes all of us, not just him. I guess he refered to them more than once as his this could be a bigger issue. I can give him the benefit of the doubt. who knows what he is thinking

So my hubby is a Marine and he says "he was never enlisted so it isn't "his" military... The military is for the US people not the President's personal use. However, this is something so small to get so worked up over. Move on."
