Get yourself an education before you think about being president of Haiti.

Otherwise you are making a fool of yourself and a serious embarrassment for the country, You don't even know your name or your age. You cannot express yourself well in Creole or in standard English.

You cannot speak French.

We are leaving in a totally different world than that of or ancestors Toussaint Louverture, Jean Jacques Dessalines, Christophe, Petion and the like.
Wyclef Jean represents the dream of all immigrants here and abroad.

People who left their countries in search of a better life elsewhere.

We thank Sean Penn for his help in Haiti but at the same time we ask him to short his mouth in the Haitian's politic.

Wyclef is Haitian he has the right to run for any position he wants, if the constitution gives him the right to d so. it being 206 years since our independance and we still the poorest country in the west hemisphere, we being try so many people with alot competency but they didn't bring to no where so we want to try something

Wyclef Jean would better serve Haiti as a singer.

He does not have to be President to help Haiti.

I like Wyclef Jean as a singer but he is not qualify enough to be President material.

If Wyclef Jean really wants to help Haiti, he should continue his singing career.

Maybe later, as he said he cannot "SING FOREVER", he might be a producer.

He should leave politics to
