You may be out of work, but George W. Bush has a new job. The former president is using his legendary oratorical skills to forge a new career, Mike Allen reported in Politico. After hearing the news, David Letterman’s writers required oxygen.
Mr. Bush is booked to give ten speeches this year in Canada, the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He is represented by the Washington Speakers Bureau. The agency’s motto: “Inspiration from the World’s Greatest Minds.” Really.
We are disappointed that Mr. Bush is not taking our advice and using his love for “clearing brush” to enhance the historical legacy of his presidency. Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, Texas is only 60 miles from the Bush Ranch. George W. Bush introduced thousands of young Americans to such facilities; a job as caretaker would give him daily opportunities to admire his handiwork.
