Remember the hit TV show called “Everyone Hates Chris”? Well this year’s State of the Union should be called “Obama Hates Everyone…but especially Hillary.”
Barack Obama’s entire speech is about taxes, taxes and taxes. It’s about hate.
Hate for rich people…hate for dead rich people (with estates)…hate for business owners…hate for stock market shareholders…hate for the GOP…but mostly, it’s about hate for Hillary Clinton.
Obama tries to give the impression he is friends with the Clintons. The reality is he hates them. The hate between the Obamas and Clintons is legendary among Washington, D.C. insiders. Obama is a true radical Marxist. He hates “sell-outs.” Everything he does is to advance the cause of socialism. He refuses to compromise. He refuses to even speak to Republicans.
Obama has more open dialogue with terrorists than Republicans. He speaks to Iran more than Republicans. He speaks to Islamic State more than Republicans. He spends more time negotiating for the release of Guantanamo Bay terrorists than negotiating with Republicans.

Obama life is dedicated to hating Republicans. Last night was his chance to give the finger to the GOP.
But this is a rare two-for-one opportunity.
The only thing bigger than Obama’s hate for Republicans is his hate for the Clintons. He hates the Clintons because they aren’t dedicated to the cause of socialism like him. The Clintons are only dedicated to the Clintons. Obama hates the fact that Bill Clinton always negotiated and compromised with Republicans. After every defeat and dramatic drop in the polls, Bill Clinton always moved to the center. To Obama that’s heresy. To Obama, that’s being a traitor to the socialist cause.
So Obama hits the jackpot with this year’s State of the Union. He gets to enrage Republicans with massive new tax proposals…and at the same time, damage Hillary’s presidential prospects.
Obama knows every single idea on taxes he is proposing is DOA (Dead on Arrival). He couldn’t get one of these taxes passed with a Democrat-controlled Senate. None of his proposals have a snowball’s chance in hell with a Republican-controlled Senate.
But that’s not important to Obama. He gets one more chance to flaunt and taunt - to flaunt his unwavering, radical, socialist credentials and to taunt Republicans that he hates so much. And he puts Hillary in a box, in an unwinnable position. Who says Obama is against torture? He loves torturing Hillary.
Obama’s massive tax hikes are political suicide for any politician. He knows that. But even though they’ll never pass, Hillary will have to take a stand on tax hikes. That’s a no-win for her.
If she’s against tax hikes for the rich, she loses the base. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Okla.) wins the nomination.
If Hillary supports massive new taxes, she loses the general election. Hillary can only win the general election by moving to the middle.
She’s damned if she does…she’s damned if she doesn’t. All courtesy of Obama.
Obama is a true blue comrade. A radical leftist foot soldier for socialism. He wants to move his party to the left of left. He wants a successor that will carry on his legacy of ruining the country, capitalism and American exceptionalism. He wants someone that will carry on the income redistribution that he started, until America lives in equality and social justice ("shared misery").
He knows Hillary will always compromise, negotiate and triangulate. The Clintons have no principles, no hard and fast rules, no true beliefs - it’s “Just Win Baby.” The only thing they believe in is the Clintons. They won’t hesitate to throw Obama’s legacy under the bus to gain power.
He can’t have that.
Hillary will be asked if she agrees with massive tax hikes…open borders…total amnesty for illegals…massive unsustainable debt…a health care program that is bankrupting the middle class...and of course never using the words “Muslim” and “terrorism” in the same sentence. She can’t agree with any of that, or she loses middle America (and the election). She has to move to the middle to win.
Obama knows that and he’s making her life impossible. It’s all a big chess game and Obama plays it even better than the Clintons. Obama is in a win-win position.
First, Obama can finally unleash his "inner Obama." He can be his true self. He can be as radical as he wants since he never runs again, so he’ll never face the wrath of voters.
Second, he desperately wants Elizabeth Warren (or anyone else) to defeat Hillary.
Third, his final “ace in the hole” is Michelle Obama. If the Democratic nominee loses in 2016, he might be even better off. Four years later Obama knows U.S. Sen. Michelle Obama (Socialist-Ill.) may be standing at the front of the line for the presidency. He can count on Michelle to finish the job he started.
And that’s the real State of the Union for Obama.
