Latest Obama stage prop: Retired mega-Dem donor/former Google asks prez to raise his taxes

Just when you think Oba-Kabuki can’t get any more ham-handed and cheesier…it does.

At a LinkedIn town hall/campaign rally forum with President Obama today, a questioner picked “randomly” from the audience just happened to beg the president to raise his taxes:

More vid at The Right Scoop.

The questioner is one Doug Edwards, an early Google employee who is retired and who has given gobs and gobs of cash to the Democratic party via Tim Carney:

It seems relevant to point out that this rich liberal is Doug Edwards from the Obama-friendly and regulation-friendly Google.

Edwards has given $300,000 to politicians since 2000 — every single dime to Democrats. He specifically said he wanted his higher taxes to cover Pell Grants.

That’s about 60 Pell Grants he could have provided.

Note in the video how sheepishly Edwards replies to Obama when asked what his occupation is.

Also note the new euphemism for retired: “Unemployed by choice.”

What a crock.

This is all in keeping, of course, with the White House stage managers — and also the long history of cooperation from liberal Internet/tech titans.

Here’s a handy refresher on Obama’s theater props and past liberal social media plants. Barry, Barry, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

*Liveblogging the CNN/YouTube debate: “Edginess,” “elbows, “eh.” Update: Romney’s the Energizer candidate; Update: PLANT ALERT; The biggest stumble of the night award goes to…CNN; Update: The plants keep sprouting like weeds

*Digging out more CNN/YouTube plants: Abortion questioner is declared Edwards supporter (and a slobbering Anderson Cooper fan); Log Cabin Republican questioner is declared Obama supporter; lead toy questioner is a prominent union activist for the Edwards-endorsing United Steelworkers

*Spin doctors for Obamacare

*Everything’s staged: Michelle Obama’s garden food was fake

*Obama calls soldiers “pretty good photo ops.”

*Welcome to Obamacare theater

*Obama Kabuki theater in Portsmouth; crowd chants “YES, WE CAN!;” little girl laments “mean things” on protest signs; O lies about single-payer support

*Obamacare/OFA stage props in Houston: “One is a Che Guevara fan and the other lies about being a doctor.”
