No, Obama doesn't "hate" the poor any more than a farmer "hates" his livestock.
To the prog-libs, like Obama, the poor exist to be exploited and used. Raised and breed to provide them votes, but beyond that, just so many dumb animals.
Of course, to the progressive, all humans are simply animals which is why they believe that "scientific" methods of social control can be used to "perfect" the species. The problem is that they only believe this for the unwashed masses.
The prog-libs, themselves and their progeny, are the enlightened and beneficent rulers and leaders who are above the laws and sacrifices they would impose on all of us ignorant rubes who just want the government to leave us and the fruits of our labors alone.
