Gee, you think this might be an ASTROTURF uprising (as opposed to a 'grassroots' uprising)? And in the state of Florida?
Home of the repug infiltration of the vietnam veterans against the war protest (they brought trumped up charges of violence);
Home of the hanging chad and the khaki clad frat boys storming the counting and stopping it in 2000;
Home of all things ad (Rememer anita bryant?)

THOSE GUYS WERE PLANTS, THEY DIDN'T REPRESENT
THE PEOPLE WHO TOLD THEM TO SIT WHERE THEY SAT,
AND HOLD THAT BANNER!
THEY WERE TOLD WHAT TO SAY AND TO HOLD THE BANNER
AT THE SAME TIME, IF YOU NOTICE ONCE THE BANNER
WAS TAKEN FROM THEM, THEY DIDN'T UTTER ANOTHER
WORD!
I WONDER WHO GAVE THEM THAT BANNER?

What those 'hecklers' don't understand is Obama is running for President of ALL the United States, and NOT President of Black States......Black people will only make up a small segment of the voters. Fact is, 70% of the people casting votes come November will be White.
