George W. Bush is embarking on a new career as a motivational speaker
Mr Bush will speak at an event in Fort Worth, Texas on Monday
On Monday, the former US president - whose policies inspired millions of Americans to vote Democrat in the 2008 election- will headline at a popular Get Motivated programme, appearing at a seminar about, among other things, "How to master the art of effective leadership".
Mr Bush's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq provoked widespread criticism, and his steering of the US economy drew censure. But he is likely to be paid around $100,000 (£61,000) for a 40-minute speech on his experiences as leader of the free world - so he may yet have the last laugh.

Yea, if Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Almarosa( The Apprentice) can book speaking engagements, then there is no reason George W shouldn't do it. The beauty of America, if there is a demand for his words~ he will succeed. Otherwise, who cares. He doesn't have a say in the CURRENT state of our nation. Obama is doing ALL that spending, flip-flopping, and lack in decision making purely on his own. jmo :o)

The only thing Bush could motivate me to do by listening to him is open a bottle of wine.

anon :38 If you are the OP, I really wasn't talking to you personally. I was making a comment about Nick Allen's obviously more of the blame Bush for the War of 1812 type speech. Unless, you aren't Nick Allen are you?
