    Wyclef! Haiti needs a president, not a savior!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter omekongo of Washington, D.C. often shares his views on current events. Here, he offers his criticisms on Wyclef Jean's decision to run for president of Haiti.
    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    Wyclef made several key mistakes in his speech about the presidency of Haiti. He came off as more arrogant than passionate. He painted Haiti as if it needed him. He also referred to himself as a "young youth". He's 40. That's not young. He also spoke about needing to win abroad as being almost more important than winning in Haiti. He needs to brush up on his history because many of Haiti's problems stem from its relations with the international community. Furthermore, he says doesn't really want to run but the youth "drafted" him. He should realize that he can serve his country in other ways. He shouldn't run if he really doesn't want to. Lastly, from one rapper to another, speaking in the 3rd person may work in hip-hop, but not in politics. Good luck Wyclef!
