WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former President George W. Bush has a new speaking gig.
Bush will be featured as the "special guest speaker" at an October 26 "Get Motivated!" business seminar in Fort Worth, Texas, according to an announcement on the organization's Web site.
Tamara Lowe, the Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Get Motivated Seminars, Inc., said in a phone interview that the former president will appear live and in person at the upcoming event. Lowe estimated that Bush will speak for roughly 20 minutes. Lowe also said that the company has all the necessary safety precautions in place to host a former president.
Bush's former Secretary of State Colin Powell and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani are set to join Bush at the October 26 event.
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 to the October and December events for $4.95 per person or $19 for a group.
CNN is awaiting confirmation from a representative of the former president about the scheduled appearances at the seminars.
This has to be a joke. A public speaker?
Get motivated....and how to bring down the United States of America in less than 10 years!
Oh, geez! BUSH?? a MOTIVATOR? What's HE going to motivate people to do? Screw up everything they possibly can? What about the people who'll actually PAY to go see the guy? AMERICA, you have a new mental illness: short-term memory loss!
This man couldn't motivate anyone when He was a presidnat how in the world would He be able to motivate anyone. I wouldn' go to his speech even if He paid me to do so.
You can always learn something from anyone (including dumb people) & most of us have wasted more money than that with a bad movie! :)
$4.95? That's less than a turkey dinner! On the other hand, you do get to see a huge turkey.
Given his past track record as a businessman, would you really want to pay money to hear him speak? Given his economic track record as president, would you believe that he is credible? I don't think so.
I think that cheapens him. Why can't he just go back and play ' Cowboys ' again ? His day is gone.
Biggest waste of 4.95$ in the history of the universe.
I wish he would go to Spain so they could arrest him. He is a thief and war criminal and should be treated as such. Let's trade him for Bin Laden, they have equal worth. When is he coming to the west so we can throw tomatoes?
Still -– The dumbest man alive!
LOL....most of America already knows he was nothing but a cheerleader....no substance at all! Too funny! Very appropriate job for a former cheerleader.
I wonder what that company, "get motivated" thing
is about. Is it like Amway, or religious, or something
Enough time has already past to know that Bush is far better than Obama
If I had the time, I would attend in a heartbeat. I believe he is the most underrated president the US has had. Will watch for more available schedules in the future.
I'm not especially motivated to pay anything at all to hear what this man has to say.
He motivated me 8 years ago to switch from R to D.
Now THAT's motivation that lasts a lifetime.
Mission accomplished !
Well – he sure motivated America: right into financial ruin.
I am thrilled to hear that our best President since Ronald Reagan is going to be speaking. I would pay much more to hear him speak. I admire this man greatly and will always b e grateful for his service to this country.
this funny , from a guy that allowed touture is going to motivate people
no thanks bush ! I don't want to get motvated by a touture loving person
I wont pay a penny to see Bush who made US disaster.
He is just pathetic a former president started meaning less war and killing innocent peoples.
Wow, $5 to hear the ex-President speak on motivation. Wonder how many tickets they can sell? You couldn't pay me to sit there...I'd be way too tempted to shout "Liar" at him a few hundred times. But then, I'm sure all ticket buyers will be vetted and no liberals allowed, just like at his Presidential rallies.
This is the funniest thing I've read in a long time. I had to double check to make sure I wasn't reading The Onion....
I'd love to go just to get a chance to personally thank him for the excellent job he did while president. Too bad he isn't still president; he would clean up in Afghanistan.
BTW, he looks fantastic!
At a rate of US$ 4.99 to hear from G.W.Bush how to run a company into the ground and ruin a whole conrtry – that is a bargain ! Let's go !!!!!
