Twitter users went crazy with responses and outrage.

“Obama said he had “my (his) military” look at options. Very Very Offensive to me as a Retired Naval Aviatior! Our Military serves Our USA! – David Hayden

From the full transcript:

 I have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that norm. But as I’ve already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options. We have consulted with allies. We’ve consulted with Congress. We’ve been in conversations with all the interested parties, and in no event are we considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign. But we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only Syria, but others around the world, understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban and norm.

    BHO has finally shown that as president he has risen beyond his level of incompetence!!
    In saying, “my military” our fraud of a president, who could never have even gotten a
    security clearance as a federal employee, is an egocentric would-be-dictator and should
    never have risen higher than a ‘community organizer.’
