The White House released an online public service announcement starring former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton on Saturday in which the ex-presidents urge viewers to donate to their newly created Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and other organizations involved in Haiti earthquake victims relief.

My heart bleeds for Haiti.
However, Clinton, Bush and Obama have combined to create one of the worst man-made diasters our country has ever seen in our economy. We can't donate to other countries if we can't pay our mortgages and are losing jobs ourselves. Before we have disaster relief campaigns for other countries, these three presidents should work to clean up the mess here at home. Donation campaigns would be better served for people here without jobs and losing homes. And stop spending taxpayer money for bailouts!!!!!!

Somehow the notion of "W" pitching for disaster relief contributions doesn't quite nudge the credibility meter.

The G.H.W. Bush-Clinton combo delivered. The Bushie half of this duo might prompt some potential donors to wonder what Obama was thinking... maybe even to give to a charity other than one presided over by this iteration of Bush-Clinton

Don't expect a huge response from residents of New Orleans and environs.

Perhaps President Obama needs an in-house consumer marketing czar?



• A government atrocity that makes Watergate look like just another black bag job.

I am pleased to see that Obama has asked for help from his predecessors. About time, too. This man who is so arrogant is finally realizing that he might just get some good advice from two people who have been in his shoes before. I won't hold my breath on anything else that might come his way.
