You just stated a strawman. It isn't a comparison of Lee vs. Haren, it is the entire picture of what it would cost to get one vs. the other and the chance that either would improve the Reds chances of the postseason for this year and beyond.
The folks liking the Haren idea do not dismiss him for a slow start to this season (he just shut down the Cards in a recent start btw), like that he has a reasonable contract for two more years, and that he will not demand as much in a package. Throw in Drew and it is the type of deal that could make folks forget the names of the prospects.
