So exactly what would cause a dyed in the wool Republican to say "Oh S#@t!". Check out the following quote from a National Review Republican:
I went to Barack Obama’s rally here, on Sunday night, with a Republican friend who had never seen the Illinois senator in action before. Watching the crowd of more than 3,000 fill up the convention center, watching the people send up waves of energy to Obama, and watching him play off that energy in a speech that was one of the best political performances anyone has seen this year, my Republican friend said, simply, "Oh, s—t." He recalled the scene from Jaws, in which the small seaside town’s sheriff realizes how big the shark he’s tracking truly is, and says, "We’re gonna need a bigger boat." What my friend didn’t have to say was that he was deeply worried that Republicans just don’t have a bigger boat.

As a Republican that will likely vote for Obama I bring this to dkos because it is unlikely that many read NRO and this is something worth sharing. I also post it to wonder out loud, as Andrew Sullivan does, why (some) Republicans get it but (some) Democrats don't (yet)?
Also, even though I support Obama, rest assured there are even some Republicans that like and trust HRC. (Yes, a bit snarky)
