So then in either case rent a mob was a failed term, because in either case guns were not present. Rent a mob was used by the poster to demonize the McDonalds protesters when in fact the real demons were inside the building.

That I would agree with.

Are you missing my question about Obama resigning his job......like Palin or, are you just lacking a stance??

Too be quite honest I didn't deem it valid. What purpose, or premise does such a question have? The last president to resign was Nixon, and he did it for a good reason. Why would Obama resign? Sorry, but I just don't understand what point you're driving at.

Palin resigned and went to work for Fox. Erickson resigned for a media position, and fights against working class rights.

I still question if the animosity among the seniors is truly is great as the media made it out to be at that time, or if it was just something sensational to draw negative attention to the issue. But you don't need guns present to rent the mob, if that is what you are implying.

Obama did resign from the Illinois senate......just like Palin resigned.

You appeared in an earlier post to have a problem with Palin resigning.

I mentioned it because from what I can remember about the media coverage at that time, there were reports of some protests turning violent. Perhaps that was of gun activists protesting Obamacare, but the implication seemed to be that people were wiling to stop the affordable care act, at all costs.
