There seems to be a bit of irony in appointing W and Bill to seek aid for Haiti...Democracy Now! is the source of this commentary... STOP YOUR EMAILS.

“Bush Was Responsible for Destroying Haitian Democracy”
–Randall Robinson on Obama Tapping Bush to Co-Chair US Relief Efforts

We speak with TransAfrica founder Randall Robinson, author of An Unbroken Agony: Haiti, from Revolution to the Kidnapping of a President. On President Obama tapping former President Bill Clinton and former President George W Bush to co-chair US relief efforts in Haiti, Robinson says, “Bush was responsible for destroying Haitian democracy…Clinton has largely sponsored a program of economic development that supports the idea of sweatshops… but that is not what we should focus on now. We should focus on saving lives.”
