Republicans may hate Obama, but the rest of the world doesn't. Of course, even when it comes to civil rights, religion, gun rights, science, education and health care, Republicans step to the beat of a different drum. Bill Clinton has made more than a hundred million dollars since he left office giving speeches, writing and so on. He is one of the most popular politicians in the world. Bush has become a "motivational" speaker making peanuts compared to what Clinton rakes in. W. will be speaking at the Get Motivated Seminar on October 26. The Seminar (costing $19 per office) describes itself like so: This motivational mega-show packs more inspirational firepower than a stick of dynamite! Bush Is Headline Speaker At 'Motivational Mega Show' With 'Inspirational Firepower' Obama's appeal is much broader than Clinton's. I suspect Obama will triple what Clinton made in less than 10 years. That would put him well ahead of Romney who had to throw thousands of Americans out of work to get his two hundred million. In fact, I suspect Obama will become an even greater political figure world wide. The reason Republicans aren't able to capture the interest of the rest of the world is because no one is really interested in a shill for big corporations. Even Bush in Haiti had to ruin what little credibility he had when seen wiping off his hand on the back of Clinton's shirt after shaking hands with a local. Not behavior you could call "inspirational". Win or lose, Obama will rake in the big bucks. He will be invited to speak all over the world and will shape American policy for decades. Even if they win, Republicans face a bleak future. Eventually their base will wise up. You can't win with just the votes of billionaires. Romney has proved that with all the close elections and he still out spent his opponents 10 to 1 or more.
