PNoy blames Arroyo but takes credit for her work in a speech in Singapore

Official records show that there have been 14 Philippine Presidents that preceded incumbent President Noynoy Aquino (PNoy). However, PNoy seems to be under the illusion that there were only two past Presidents before him and he takes turns referring to each one of them in his speeches depending on the occasion.

The writing on the wall says it all.
The writing on the wall says it all.
When PNoy talks about his famous and much revered parents, the late Ninoy and Cory Aquino, PNoy never misses an opportunity to blame the late former President Ferdinand Marcos for the “Martial Law” years. When PNoy talks about corruption, PNoy never misses an opportunity to point his finger at former President Gloria Arroyo for a decade of “dark” years as if she were the only President linked to corruption.

In his recent speech before the Filipino community in Singapore, PNoy was disappointingly predictable, blaming Arroyo yet again indicating that “all decisions made by the former administration were based on politics.

PNoy’s favorite example of politics-based decision-making was when, in his opinion, Arroyo “allegedly” chose to reject an increase in electricity rates in 2004 because it was an election year, a decision which according to him again, resulted in “Napocor’s debts soaring to P1 trillion.” For a man with enough resources at his disposal to help him analyze most situations, PNoy is singularly focused on blaming one single entity for the shortcomings of his administration.

How sure is he anyway about his allegations? How is it even quantifiable? Arroyo not increasing electricity rates could not have affected the voter’s decision in the first place because the voters would have found the cost of living high at any given time, particularly during Arroyo’s term. And isn’t it PNoy and all those who despise Arroyo who keep insisting that she cheated in the 2004 election anyway? So her win in the 2004 election could not have been because she kept electricity rates down.

To be sure, PNoy is just trying to find a scapegoat; someone to blame (again) for why he needs to increase the cost of electricity during his term. He knows that as soon as the Filipino people feels the pinch of the rate rise, his popularity will more than likely, go down. It is short of saying, “Don’t look at me, Arroyo should have increased it during her term.” PNoy’s tactic reminds me of an Adolf Hitler quote, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”

PNoy also stressed in the same speech that “the government became insensitive during Arroyo’s term.” Really? I wonder what kind of people fall for PNoy’s irrational talk? Even a biased Inquirer article about Arroyo accurately paints a very different story about the “insensitivity” of the government even before Arroyo took over:

Ms Arroyo came to power in January 2001 following the ouster of Estrada in a sequel to the iconic Edsa People Power Revolution in 1986. The first uprising had ousted Marcos after nearly a decade and a half of strongman rule.

The replay–nothing more than an out-and-out military coup–was triggered by moral indignation over the abortive Senate impeachment hearings against the actor-turned-politician. The televised proceedings showed he was up to his eyeballs in wine, women and wampum supposedly weaseled from “jueteng” (illegal numbers game) collections and shady business deals.

Arroyo, his vice president, replaced him.

What does politics-based decision making mean to PNoy anyway? It seems to me like he is playing politics too by excluding other past Presidents from the blame game. Even Walter Lohman, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center was quoted as saying that the country is facing “institutional problems that go back a long time,” and these “need to be addressed over the long term.”

And to quote myself in my previous article:

In other words, it is likely that PNoy’s own mother’s stint in Malacanang also contributed to the problems ‘that go back a long time.’ As a matter of fact, his own mother, the late former President Cory Aquino was actually instrumental in creating the current institutional and legal frameworks that are causing major, major problems for the country.

PNoy has the opportunity to fix things but unfortunately, there is no sign of improvement in the way he conducts things. PNoy is given a big opportunity but he is just wasting it. PNoy promised to improved things but he is not doing anything different to achieve it. Opportunity keeps on knocking at Malacanang’s door but PNoy refuses to let it in because he has no more room for improvement.

Likewise, in the same speech PNoy claimed that the Philippine economy is improving. He cited how it grew by a solid 7.3% last year and “the country is now the fourth-largest shipbuilder in the world and the No. 1 in the call center industry.” How lucky is PNoy? Barely a year in office and he is already taking credit for the growth that is the result of the previous administration’s hard work.

PNoy failed to mention the following reasons for the growth as reported by the Inquirer:

1. Higher remittances from the millions of Filipinos working abroad.

2. Spending fuelled by the billions of dollars overseas Filipino workers sent home.

3. Was achieved on the back of the world recovery from the global financial crisis.

4. The extra money that was pumped into the economy by politicians who campaigned in the national and local elections held in the middle of last year.

Additionally, the National Statistics Coordination Board (NSCB) gave the following explanation:

Growth by sector

Private sector investment in construction, machinery and equipment resulted in a robust 17-percent growth in gross domestic capital formation. This supported the healthy pace of growth in manufacturing and services, according to the NSCB.

Industry contributed 3.9 percentage points to total GDP growth on the back of brisk manufacturing, particularly electrical machinery, petroleum and coal products, and food–thanks to a strong pick-up in domestic demand and the rebound in external trade.

The services sector contributed 3.5 percentage points to GDP growth, boosted by the strong performance of trade and private services. This was complemented by flourishing domestic investment, robust expansion in business process outsourcing, hotels and restaurants, wholesale and retail trade, and import and export trade.

Due to fewer typhoons, the agriculture sector managed to grow 5.4 percent in the fourth quarter. “Only two typhoons hit the country compared to seven in the last quarter of 2009,” Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Cayetano Paderanga noted.

In short, PNoy had nothing to do with the economic growth. He just keeps saying that he did. Let’s see how the economy performs this year after tens of thousands of Filipinos had to be evacuated from the Middle East.

And of course, a PNoy speech is not complete without his standard ramblings:

“Lahat ng minana natin, hindi pa tayo perpekto, at tao tayong imperfect, hindi naman natin ma-pe-perfect yan. Pero gusto ko lang pagdiinan at ulit-ulitin sa inyo na talagang yung pagkatagal-tagal na iniisip nating walang kapaga-pag-asa, talagang sobra nang pag-asa ngayon,” he said.

I don’t know what PNoy meant with his latest drivel but when it comes to pure nonsense, I still prefer former United States Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld’s classier excuse:

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.

Official records show that there has been 14 Philippine Presidents before PNoy. They have all made their decisions based on politics alone, which is why the international community still considers the Philippines a basketcase today.

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” << thank you for using this as reference. I really think that Noynoy is looking up to Hitler as much as the Communist Party is also using Nazi tactics to infiltrate our democracy.

Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister of Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany, plainly explained: “A lie repeated from time to time, will soon be accepted,as Truth.”
Hitler lied to the British Prime Minister Chamberlain, by signing for peace…Chamberlain went back to Britain, showing the document as: “Peace of our Times.” Soon Hitler gobbled Austria, then Czechoslovakia…He made a non-aggression treaty with Soviet Union’s Stalin. They soon partitioned Poland…
See how these leaders lie to each other, for their self-interests…Noynoy Aquino is their illegitimate son-of-a-bitch…there is no truth in any part of his bone…

On the pagkakaisa thing, differences of opinion are not bad in itself, as long as the issue concerned is vital. Kaso lang nakikipag-away lang ang mga Pilipino sa mga walang-kwentang bagay eh, tapos nilalaganap pa ng gobyerno.

Noynoy is still in the campaign mode, hitting at his rival, GMA. The election is over, he probably didn’t realize he already won the presidential race, thanks to automation cheating.

@ Pro pinoy: You know I had a refreshing Sunday and I wanted so much to elongate the good feeling it took me a humungous effort to resist myself from commenting. Alas, I have to yield. Your thinking is pitiful I have to make a response. Foremost, you failed to read the threads of comments forged in this blog, particularly the statement of the author that she had to censor the written language of counterlevel for failure to comply with the commenting guidelines naturally pasted on the lower left of every page of this site. Or maybe you deliberately wrote… Read more »

very well said K.izmet thumbs up….

hard to argue with someone of shallow thinking like Propinoy … or maybe that’s Kris right there defending her brother, i haven’t scrolled down but I hope he/she didn’t post any more comments coz really his/her blind perceptions are so stressful, no basis and he/she seems to be making comments just to say that he/she did

if we argue like him/her then I’d be embarassed to say I’m a Filipino

your ngoyngoy is president. the recent events during his regime: 1) dead HK tourists 2) dead filipinos sa bus bombing 3) read the philippine star at every single day sa metro news section nila eh may binabaril na local politician 4) yung reporter ng GMA-7 nanakawan ng LV bag 5) rampant carnapping at pagpatay sa dealers 6) di naasikaso ng maayos ang mga OFWs sa libya 7) inapprove nya ang pilipinas kayganda na ginastusan na ang launch tapos pinatanggal nya ang tanga tanga talaga HAHA 8) scandal ng luxury car nya — di naman pala pro-poor dyusko!

According to Ilda, “You can’t win an argument simply by swearing.”

So what makes you think you can win it by MORE swearing?

Cy, it only proves that the Aquinolater has lost the argument.

Yo, there’s no argument in his case…. there’s only wasted blood, toil, tears, and sweat; no cognition.

Nagkamali yata si PRO PINOY ng posting ng kanyang comment. Doon ka bagay sa ABS-CBN online news, PCIJ, E Tordesillas blog comment sections. Para sa katulad mo, garantisadong magkakasundo kayo doon. Masaya sila doon sa personal attack sa halip na issue.

I’m a new commenter in this blog and from the time I’ve read most of the comments here, I find them insightful (not inciteful just like this drive-by or hit-and-run PRO PINOY – your mother will be very proud of you), even those which are satirical or hyperbole.

A typical spineless Pinoy: ALL NOISE AND NO SUBSTANCE.

Yan ang EMO-POLITICS. It really proves that you are anti-intellectual. Tuldok!

@The Philippine Guild… matanong ko lang, pro-Marcos ka ba? Lagi mo kasing sinasabi na “suicidal ang tatay” na parang ang ibig sabihin eh nagpakamatay at hindi pinatay… sa mga pananalita mong yan, kapareho ka na ng tina”tag” ninyo dito as pro-Noynoy. Personal kung umatake, gumagamit ng mga salitang pampainis… subjective at hindi objective. At saka bakit hindi mga pangalan ng tao ang ginagamit nyo at nagkukubli kayo sa mga aliases, takot ba kayo?

@Pro Pinoy: That’s what I call an untillegient, anti-intellectual human being. Please read the whole article before you comment on something. On those things you’ve mentioned: -The Hacienda Luisita issue: Since it’s the home of the Aquinos, it’s natural to have soldiers in it since Cory is a former president. And ob the killings, have you ever heard of the Manila Bus Hostage Crisis? Instead of being serious about the situation, he’s just SMILING on the freakin’ cameras! -At least what Gordon wanted is CHANGE and to change the mindset of the Filipino people. “Bawal ang tanga” ika nga but… Read more »

What is PNoy doing differently from what Arroyo did during her time? He used to criticise Arroyo for travelling now he realises the merits of travelling to invite more investors.

@AntiPinoy How about this. Yours is something that still has to happen under Penoy’s watch and the below is what has happened under GMA’s watch – The Philippines Maintaining momentum BY JOSE MAURICIO http://www.businessweek.com/adsections/2008/pdf/01282008.pdf SUSTAINED GROWTH AND SOUND FUNDAMENTALS ARE PROMPTING INVESTORS TO LOOK ANEW AT THE PHILIPPINES. WHAT’S MORE, ECONOMIC EXPANSION IS SEEMINGLY IMMUNE TO THE COUNTRY’S LIVELY POLITICS. IS LASTING PROSPERITY NOW A REALITY? (Snippet) But the Philippines now appears to have reached a paradoxical “sweet spot” where even as the trademark to-and-fro of its politics plays out, the economy is advancing regardless.
