Sure enough, it didn't take long for the moonbats to figure out how to blame Bush for the Haiti earthquake. Note their arguments in the Puffington Host.
It's all Bush's fault because he supposedly engineered the 2004 rebellion that overthrew Haiti's fantastically corrupt Marxist dictator Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and that Bush had all US aid to Haiti channeled through private aid organizations and not through bottomlessly corrupt government officials. They actually claim this.
This was quickly followed by media moonbat Keith Olbermann of MSNBC arguing that the disaster in Haiti is why the US needs ObamaCare. You can trust the Left to never let a crisis go to political waste.
Here's something to focus on during the Haitian horror: the humanity of Judeo-Christian values. Look down the full list of countries, companies, and organizations (current as of today 1/15/10) providing aid to Haiti or an abbreviated summary of the list here.
First, note that with the exception of miniscule aid from Turkey (an emergency management expert and a psychologist), not one single Moslem country is providing a dime. It is one of Mohammed's five requirements to be a Moslem that you contribute to charity - for other Moslems. People who aren't Moslem aren't really people at all, they are sub-human infidels, kafrs, not deserving of charity.
Note that India is not on the list. Charity is an alien concept to Hindu thought. Your fate in this life is what you deserve for the way you were in past lifetimes, your karma. Better luck next lifetime.
Note that giant China, with its trillions of dollars in foreign reserves, is digging deep with $1 million - the same as tiny, poverty-stricken Guyana. Predominantly Chinese Singapore is forking over a hot 50K. Charity and conscience play little roles in the Chinese psyche. If you want them to help, the only thing that works is to shame them in to it.
The only other countries in all of Asia helping Haiti at all are South Korea at $1 million, and Japan at $5 million.
Charity - helping your fellow man when in dire need - is a predominantly Western concept, a predominantly Jewish and Christian concept. Which is why Israel immediately sent two Boeing 747s with medical teams and aid to Haiti, and why most all the countries, companies, and charities helping Haiti are Western.
You can look down that list and take pride in your culture - that we in the West are foremost in helping those suffering horrific disaster. If you wish to help yourself, consider The Salvation Army's effort in Haiti or the Haitian-based Haiti Foundation.
