Are American troops fighting for their king?

DRUDGE Headline:
Obama: Troops 'Fighting on My Behalf'...
The Weekly Standard expands: ‘On My Behalf’ In a column ridiculing Obama's so-called "evolution" on gay marriage they commented:
Mr. Obama actually did bare his soul unintentionally today (perhaps the Biden disease is catching) with his astonishing characterization of American fighting men and women, whom he referred to as “those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf.” Really? Most Americans thought they were fighting for the country, not on Barack Obama’s behalf.
When kings and emperors ruled, the troops were told they were fighting for their rulers. Apparently America's Ruling Class has adopted the royal attitude and once again soldiers are fighting for "king and country."

Note: Headline spelling error corrected.

Barry should review his history and refresh his memory on the low regard in which Americans hold their monarchs.
