On Monday, in a town hall meeting in Mountain View, Calif., President Obama called on a seemingly-anonymous member of the audience to ask a question....
"Thank you, Mr. President," the man began. "I don't have a job, but that's because I've been lucky enough to live in Silicon Valley for a while and work for a small startup down the street here, that did quite well. So, I'm unemployed by choice. My question is: Would you please raise my taxes?"
Joe the plumber's idiot brother. That's not a question, that's a rhetorical question to make a point. Frankly it's dishonest. If you want to stand up and say 'yeah Obama, higher taxes for the rich', then just stand up and be a fanboy. Quit being ingenious and trying to look like an average joe asking a simple question. 'Small startup down the street', give me a break.
