Big blunder


FRONTLINE

That was a big boo-boo Noynoy Aquino made in warning the Supreme Court justices against recognizing a chief justice appointed by Gloria Arroyo.

That it was a big political mistake can be gleaned from the fact that the Yellow media downplayed the story, saying nothing about remarks on Noynoy’s arrogance and ignorance, and made certain that it wouldn’t be given any prominence — a tack so different from what these same media do when a story on other presidentiables, especially that of Joseph Estrada, is negatively highlighted......

When Noynoy Aquino, after the May polls, looks back and tries to determine how he squandered the presidency after literally having it in his grasp, he would likely find sticking out among the many other instances where he shot himself in the foot, the other day’s abnormal comment on not recognizing a Gloria-appointed chief justice (CJ).

Aquino, who seems to have been suddenly possessed by a people power fervor, added that if he becomes president, he would not only refuse to recognize the new CJ but would sack any associate justice who will recognize the new CJ not appointed by him..... MORE

PORT-AU-PRINCE — The crippled port of the Haitian capital has received its first supply ship since Tuesday’s killer earthquake — a boat carrying bananas and coal that was greeted with jubilation by desperate residents of the devastated city.

A swarm of small boats surrounded the ship at the entrance to the harbor late Friday as it approached a crumbled pier with supplies from Jeremie, a Haitian town about 200 kilometers (130 miles) from Port-au-Price.
Bananas will provide local residents with necessary food while coal will help boil water to avoid spread of disease.
But the joyful event did little to change the overall grim situation..... MORE

The reason offered by apologists of Senator Noynoy Aquino for his snubbing of the latest debate among the “presidentiables” hosted by the Asian Institute of Management and the Makati Business Club, in conjunction with the Presidential Policy Forum on Philippine Credibility and Competitiveness in the World, was that he had an “important engagement” to attend to. Did I get that right, Butch Abad?

The Noynoy no-show naturally disappointed many of his supporters in the so-called civil society sector which draws its strength from the Makati elite who were hugely responsible, together of course with the Church, for the success of Edsa 1 and Edsa 2 because it would have been a stellar opportunity for him to disprove persisting brickbats being propagated by the opposing political camps that he is overrated, unprepared and totally unqualified for the Malacañang job he aspires for.....
