All the more reason to quit propping up their government with our tax dollars.

Wyclef is one of the best Haitians around. He truly loves his country and is looking for ways to really help. He has been doing a great job so far on the humanitarian front. As for a politician, I have serious doubt about him for he will be lost in the political chaos and will be ineffective. I am afraid that the country will lose him and more like we did with Aristide. He will better serve Haiti by supporting candidates at all levels that will support his views and help create institutions that will guarantee true and sustainable development. The hope of the country is not in one man or woman but in people with good intentions resolving to create those lasting institutions. May these views prevail in the coming months.

No. Haitians are generally not African Americans. There's a world of difference between their outlook on life and attitude in general vs someone like Broke Obama, Rev Wright, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc.

Agree. We cannot afford to keep giving away our tax dollars when we're basically broke and borrowing money from China/Japan.

If He loved Haiti that hellhole so much so why is HE living in the USA.

He should move his black arse back to Haiti, Just like GW Bush moved back to the "ranch"...

If African Sadam Hussein Obama can somehow be president of the USA, then any illegal Mexican can be president.

So, now they have a representative to go sponge money off of other countries other than open their country up to industry.

Don't believe me - well, the Dominican Republic (right next door), had to keep the Haitians out after the earthquake because they are a detriment to their successful economy.

Wyclef will now be going to every nation on the planet instead of leading - he will be another Barack Obama, consistently campaigning on his popularity instead of leading.

Sean Penn knows what is best for Haitians! Vote for Penn/Cruise!
