A little over three weeks has already past and STILL, the new government, the P-Noy administration (sounds a little conceited doesn't it?) has been committing blunders left and right.
It started out with the focus on minor problems (wang-wang), to the fine-tune-needing Memorandum Circular #1, to the Corona snub, the to the Media seminars, RH Bill, Taxations, being late to appointments , the Cabinet members chosen, etc.
Whoa, come to think of it, minor problems tend to build up to HUGE problems.
Given, P-Noy has done several moves already, although these moves are merely on Congress level, I think P-Noy hasn't (or will he ever) grasped the FACT that he is the President of the entire Philippines. What of the great and upheaving promises that he has given the whole nation once he is seated in Malacanang? (or should I say Times Street?) Has he forgotten all his speeches and commercials?
From what I see, things are not going too well for the Filipinos let alone the country. It seems like P-Noy is making decisions that either benefit himself and his political party, Or making decisions that would let his supporters say, 'at least may ginagawa.'
People, we cannot have this kind of mentality towards the highest, most revered occupation in any country. We must have some objectivity in viewing out government, regardless of their celebrtity-like status, they ARE NOT CELEBRITIES. How can you celebrate a person who uses YOUR tax money for their monthly trips abroad, or their lavish mansions, or their children who would never have to work in their lives (and even become protected little crooks and addicts), or simply who lie directly to your face just so they can maintain their seats in government? HOW??
Anyway, back to the topic...
P-Noy called the DoJ to review the case of detained Senator Trillanes which is a big mistake especially because of timing and purpose. This is because the new Congress will open in a few weeks, the Senate Presidency is up for grabs and reports say that the LP bet in the race, Senator Kiko Pangilinan is trying to get as much votes as he can.
Sen. Pangilinan claimed that he has 10 sure votes already from his colleagues and Trillanes' vote would be a big contribution. Rumors are former Senate President Manny Villar is the man to beat for the Senate Presidency as he has been courting senators for votes since he conceded from the Presidential elections, way ahead of Pangilinan. Aside from this, Villar has solid allies in the Senate, namely from his own bloc and at least half of Ed Angara's bloc.
Another underlying notion of this petition for review of Trillanes' case is P-Noy's desire to 'have the Senate be in parallel to his platforms and advocacies' OR to simply say, P-Noy's desire to completely disregard the checks and balance of the branches of government and have evertyhing in his favor. How can one not see that once Kiko Pangilinan gets a hold of that Senate President seat, anything and everything P-Noy wants, he will get since Pangilinan ran under the Liberal Party, is close to P-Noy, and was even his campaign manager during his useless Congress/Senate days.
Talk about ignorance of law... tssss
