An Ass is an Ass by any other word.
What did I tell all of you?
I told you that our politicians would take advantage of the fantastic smokescreen the Hayden Kho sex scandal provided to do something they couldn’t have done in broad daylight. They passed the bill which will eventually lead to the perpetuation of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in power, not as President of the Republic, but as Prime Minister of the Federation.
In theory, it is an excellent move that will hasten the development of the Philippines.
But to have one person stay at the top position for so long, no matter how competent he or she is, is not right as far as democratic ideals, to which we all pretend and aspire to adhere, are concerned. It is simply not right.
Remember Ferdinand Edralin Marcos. He could have been the best President the Philippines ever had, but he simply stayed too long.
