04 Mar The Binays and what are they in POWER for
JUAN SAYS: Whatever issues the Cojuangcos have with the Aquinos is their business. But please do not drag the whole country into this.
In his statement of support for Vice President Binay, former lawmaker Mark Cojuangco said: “He is super industrious, not boastful, very approachable, listens before judging, listens before talking, listens before deciding and very capable,” he said.
And this is supposed to make him a really good President? We have boiled down the highest position of our land to being a friend? And suppose he has all that, we now forget that he is also being accused of plunder along with other members of the family? So we’d rather have a faithful friend for a President than someone who is clear of corruption?
If our votes are as loonies as the Cojuangcos, then we too are screwed. Too many times we have heard the story of this family uttering the words “what are we in power for?” oh too loosely and we couldn’t help but just wriggle in eeewww. What are they in power for nga ba?
