    And the poll on CNN's main page right now is "Would you pay $4.95 to attend a motivational speech by President George W. Bush?" 69% (244,675 people) said no!

    October 22, 2009

    From CNN Associate Producer Martina Stewart

    George W. Bush wants to help people 'Get Motivated!'.
    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.

    That thing just came around where I live a couple of weeks ago. GW didn't speak, but I think his wife did. The radio had mixed reviews from attendees, but most of them said Giuliani was good. I think most people were just glad to get out of work for a day.
