Politicizing a tragedy

Vice President Joe Biden came to Miami on Saturday to assure Haitian-American leaders that the administration was committed to Haiti's recovery -- for as long as it takes.

Biden sought to spread the message from President Barack Obama far and wide, from the Little Haiti Cultural Center to the Notre Dame d'Haiti Catholic Church to Homestead Air Reserve Base, which has loaded and launched more than 150 cargo planes to the earthquake-ravaged island.

In other words, he's using the American people's goodwill and largess and charitable impulses for the political benefit of the administration during campaign style stops throughout the Haitian American community.
