President George Bush As ‘Motivational Speaker’

October 27, 2009

I swear to God this is not made up.

Former President George W. Bush made his debut as a motivational speaker Monday night, telling a Fort Worth, Texas crowd it’s futile to waste energy chasing popularity.

“It’s so simple in life to chase popularity, but popularity is fleeting, it’s not real,” Bush said at a “Get Motivated!” business seminar, a multi-city event its organizers describe as an “energizing, action-packed, star-studded, fun-filled, spectacular stage show.”

Did they ever meet President Bush and hear him speak?  Hearing him strangle a sentence is something most normal people would not pay to sit through.  How he met the billing for the show is truly amusing.

Event organizers declined to disclose how much the former president was compensated for the appearance, though former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received $100,000 for a similar speech at the event two years ago.

The former president is also scheduled to participate in another “Get Motivated!” seminar in San Antonio, Texas on December 2, according to the company’s Web site.

“For a limited time only,” the Web site says, tickets are available for that event at $4.95 per person or $19 for a group.

Now that is more like it!

    Bush’s strategy for success…

    First, get born into a wealthy family.
    Second, have your father become president of the United States.
    Third… well, it’s a free ride after that!
