Oscar: Hurrah for television!!!!
Oscar: Go television!!!
MacIntosh: What are you talking about?
Oscar: I’m cheerin’ like all the people are.
MacIntosh: They are?
Oscar: Sure, everywheres you look people are saying GO TV!!!
MacIntosh: That means Get Out The Vote.
Oscar: Okays. So hurrah for Get Out….whats that mean MacIntosh?
MacIntosh: It means we need every non-crazy old person to get off their tooshes tomorrow and vote.
Oscar: Whys do we need to tell them to do that?
MacIntosh: Because we have an enthusiasm gap.
Oscar: What’s that?
MacIntosh: Because some of the people that wanted Obama to change things are disappointed he did not do more.
Oscar: Why didn’t he do more?
MacIntosh: Lots of reasons….the economy was taking a dump, the opposition was tightly organized to oppose his every move…lots of reasons.
Oscar: But didn’t he make things better?
MacIntosh: Lots better…passed an historic health bill for instance. But some people think he should have prosecuted Cheney for war crimes.
Oscar: Why didn’t he?
MacIntosh: Because it would have divided the country and he figured by the time they could get a trial together Cheney would be roasting in hell anyway.
Oscar: Waiting for Mary to join him?
MacIntosh: Yep. Other people wanted him to get out of the middle east immediately.
Oscar: Why didn’t he do that?
MacIntosh: Its complicated….I wish he had gotten out.
Oscar: So peoples have an enthusiasm gap because they think a Republican congress will do things better?
MacIntosh: A Republican congress will do everything they can to reverse the good things Obama did get done.
Oscar: Yikes. That’s seems like a bad choice.
MacIntosh: And if you don’t vote….that’s a bad choice.
Oscar: So, c’mon all you peoples, get off your tooshes and vote.
