As we've discussed, Tony Snow wants to leave the White House to make more money.
As it turns out, so does President Bush himself.
Bush told author Robert Draper that he looks forward to his post-presidency when he can "replenish the ol' coffers" by giving paid speeches, adding that he plans to make "ridiculous" money on the lecture circuit
There's nothing wrong with wanting to make money. But since most people in the world would love to trade coffers with him, it is unbecoming of a president to talk about it.
Meanwhile, the expression "replenish the ol' coffers" sounds like a quote from the ol' ballcoach Steve Spurrier. Was he coaching up the president on what to say?
