President Aquino and the question of trustworthiness

In the President’s speech last February 16 at La Consolacion college, he raised the following point (translated from the original text): “The question that this impeachment trial seeks to answer is simple: can we still trust Chief Justice Corona?” Until the Chief Justice (CJ) and his defense team present their side, we must refrain from answering this. Otherwise, we risk deciding under an ill-informed, biased set of data.

We can also ask the same question of President Aquino (PNoy), since we demand accountability of all our public officials. Can we still trust PNoy? We have pretty much gotten a good idea of how he performs, and from this we can project how he will perform for the rest of it.

Before we start, we must define trust in what exactly, so let us delimit the scope of the question even further. Can we still trust Pnoy to do the job the people elected him for?

The most logical way to jump into this argument is to start by defining how many “trust credits” PNoy has earned or lost throughout his term. Let’s start by remembering where he had to make big decisions and how he handled them. Remember how he handled the Mendoza hostage massacre, his erring staff members such as Puno, Mislang, and Llamas. It’s not easy to forget that through his staff member de Lima, he blatantly defied a Supreme Court TRO just to get to President Arroyo. Remember Sendong and the recent earthquake. Last, but not least, let us not forget his tirades against the current target of his “anti-corruption” drive, the CJ.

Am I a nitpicker? Maybe, but the way to gain trust with somebody is to show that you can be consistently counted on to do the right thing. Ask the families of the dead tourists if they trust him. As for me the Filipino, how can I trust someone who selectively punishes wrongdoing? How can I trust someone who delayed a response to calamity victims? How can I trust someone who does not believe in the concept of “three co-equal branches of government”? How can I trust someone who tramples on constitutional rights? How can I trust someone who ignores the law because it’s inconvenient?

It is tempting to jump to conclusions that all I intend to do here is point out his past mistakes. Keep in mind that while I was writing this I was scratching my head and exhausting every possible resource to find something good Pnoy had done. Only one thing comes to mind: his option not to use the siren (wangwang). At least I can trust him not to contribute to noise pollution, and traffic.

Maybe in a way, PNoy has inspired us to demand more accountability from our government. But is it because we trust him to lead by example, or is it the exact opposite?

There are two recent events that highlight chances which PNoy could have used to gain his audience’s trust and make them reaffirm with conviction that “He is OUR President”. Instead, he used these speaking engagements to vent his anger at his enemies. I am talking about his speeches at La Consolacion college, and at the recent anniversary of the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP).

In the former, he used the time to convince young students that the CJ was guilty of the charged crimes, even if the trial wasn’t finished yet. What he should have done, I think, was to inspire the students to reach for their dreams, and promise that he will help them attain those. In DBP, he berated officials associated with the previous administration. His tag line: “don’t test me”.

It seems that in answering the question of trustworthiness, we come up with more questions instead. I now need to ask certain ones pertaining to the future. Can I trust the President to lift the economy up from its current state from hereon? Can I trust the President to respect the verdict once the impeachment is finished? Can I trust that the President is not becoming the sort of evil dictator that the enemy of his parents was? Can I trust the President to stop the guilt by association way of thinking?

In short, can I trust the President to make the right decisions for the greatest good?

Most importantly, can I trust that the President does not have any vested interests that could make him lose his objectivity?

You be the judge.

Can I trust the President to lift the economy up from its current state from hereon?
No, if all he’s focused on is that HL.

Can I trust the President to respect the verdict once the impeachment is finished?
Obviously not. No explanation needed.

Can I trust that the President is not becoming the sort of evil dictator that the enemy of his parents was?
No. He’s planning to be the absolute monarch of the Philippines. Creepy.

Can I trust the President to stop the guilt by association way of thinking?
No. It’s what got him in the throne.

For all Aquino’s slip-ups, surprisingly he hasn’t had too many regarding his own position on HL.

Technically speaking in a real democracy one cannot trust a single person to hold all the state’s power, hence there are checks and balances.

As for Pnoy even if he is the son of a hero(though you’re mileage may vary)he still cannot be trusted to consolidate all power in his hands. He also cannot be trusted with the reason you mentioned.

Trust is an important issue, and I am inclined to think that no person who makes his living in the political arena cannot be fully trusted to think only of public interest. He owes too many debts to those who got him elected. But I rather think you understate the President’s accomplishments by saying he has only done one thing. So I tend to wonder if I can trust your objectivity. Trust is hard to earn among those who start with a big pile of skepticism.

Peste, Let me just cite two. One is greater stability and trust than under predecessors, generally recognized globally and reflected in improved investment ratings. Another is his willingness to stand up to China without being belligerent. It is a fine line he has to walk, to show the Philippines as strong and not subservient, while continuing to promote a constructive trade relationship. That, too, is recognized internationally as a different, more mature Philippines.

Peste
Guest

Can you quantify this improved investment rating? Compare it to past years. Compare it to Asian neighbors.

With China, how does the Nobel Prize fiasco and executed Filipino workers fit into your view? Also, you seem to think highly of the Philippine Armed Forces to consider belligerence against China a valid option.

Would you care to point out indications of a more “mature” Philippines? Because the one that ended up in Wikileaks isn’t saying so.

You better list more.

My perspective as an outsider is largely irrelevant. But my sense is that a lot of Filipinos don’t read much other than the Inquirer or Star, and some only patronize blog sites that reinforce their views, limiting though that may be.

Felipe, I gave two additional points, the investment rating and the China tightrope, and feel that is sufficient to point out that “one accomplishment” is understated.

I do think trivialities are less important than concepts. I also agree with much of what you say.

Hey Joe, I see you are merely repeating your points, so let me just repeat my questions about those:

Can you quantify this improved investment rating? Compare it to past years. Compare it to Asian neighbors.

With China, how does the Nobel Prize fiasco and executed Filipino workers fit into your view? Oh, let me add slain Chinese tourists in there.

Because of PNoy’s incompetence, the country is on the verge of a constitutional crisis, inflation is out of hand and not to mention there is disunity among Filipinos. So we really do need to concentrate more on asking PNoy to shape up or ship out.

I wasn’t trying to shoot the messenger. Indeed, the article achieved its purpose, and inspired thinking, as you intended. I merely make the point that those who start with a belief that this president is not doing much are likely to not trust him very much. And those who want to find achievements, can. And those who want to find trust (investment rating agencies) will.

I agree with you. But trust requires letting go of one’s own security. I rather think that is not easy for many to do. The matter of trust is often not so much what the other person would do (President Aquino, in this case), but how much courage is displayed by the person who lets go of his own needs, or biases.

Joe America
Guest

Combuzz, you are right, he did nothing tangible to improve the Philippine investment standing, other than refrain from spending money. But trust is a criterion for investors. Indeed, in the U.S. it was Obama’s “credibility” that stopped the global economic meltdown occurring when he took office. Bush had lost credibility. So the character of the man means something.

Combuzz
Guest

Obama’s credibility alone did not solve the financial meltdown, he and others in power worked together to solve the problem. First off a bailout of the banking system increased investor confidence. Then the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing lowered interest and increased the money supply in the market, this in turn gives investors an incentive to take on more risk in the stock markets. Then Obama enacts the Frank Dodd act to regulate the financial system.

My point here is there was direct action involved in creating investor confidence, this was not mere speculation on euphoria.

Combuzz

I am also unaware of any other of Pnoy’s accomplishments, if you would like to reiterate what some of these accomplishments are I’d also like to know.

“Can we still trust Pnoy to do the job the people elected him for?’

As I stated earlier, PNoy was elected mainly on the basis of his anti-corruption platform. If we look at the numbers, thus: by more than 15.21 million Filipinos (42 percent majority of the 36.2 million who voted in 2010 i.e. 75% of 50 million registered voters).

It is not to say that the impeachment of SC CJ Corona is a do-or-die situation.

But just between us, small ladies, 15.2 million souls will be disappointed if it doesn’t happen. 🙁

No leader in his right mind would allow all the advantages in favor of the enemies of the state.

The dictator Aquino unmindful of the Constitution and the rule of law continues his mad, obsessive ambition to totally dominate all three branches of the government. His less than skillful use of black propaganda, trial by publicity, fabrication and media manipulation is intended to deceive and divide the Filipino people. His evil examples even reach out to touch the minds of children. He is anti-freedom and anti-democracy when he schemes and plots towards his absolute dictatorship without firing a shot.

Last Christmas… The dictator Aquino partied well while people were being swept away and drowning in Mindanao. As usual he reacted late but not as late as in the floods that hit Central Luzon. Mr. Aquino was seen inappropriately SMILING as he was distributing relief goods in Mindanao. Did he smell the sickly sweet smell of death? He was also seen inappropriately SMILING for the camera in the Luneta Hostage Crisis.

Der Fuhrer,

I believe the term they’re coining nowadays for “dictatorship without firing a shot” benevolent dictatorship.

No… his is not a benevolent dictatorship. Remember Mr. Aquino called for a defiance against the SC TRO. This is a against the rule of law. He does not seem to know right from wrong anymore… Let us call it a mad dictatorship.

i have always been suspicious of the sws & pulse asia surveys which consistently rate p-noys approval/trust rating at circa 70% irrespective of drama and crises etc. that is illogical and fluctuations would be a normal factor of a genuine survey

i now understand why.
the methodology employed is to use the same group of pre picked people each time! no doubt 70% + being p-noy supporters.
it makes a mockery of surveys and is just another example of sheer deceit, and ‘loading the dice’

trust p-noy – not a chance

remove 60/40 investment/ownership barrier
implement full FoI including PDAF audit
better still, abolish PDAF (pork barrel)
full SALNS on line
distribute hacienda luisita as per ruling – no 10 billion peso compensation
implement RH bill

thats for starters but change and progress would follow. so far talk on some things but no results and a real suspicion that the agenda is simply to maintain the status quo and then blame others for lack of progress.

There’s actually a law that mandates the President of the Philippines to be, among other virtues–“TRUSTWORTHY”!

For under Sec. 04, RA 7278, “The President of the Philippines shall be the Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP).”
http://www.chanrobles.com/republicactno7278.htm

And the “Scout Law” of the BSP obligates all Boy Scouts, including the Chief himself, PNoy, to be, well, just that–TRUSTWORTHY!
http://scouts.org.ph/the-scout-law/

Let’s just hope that PNoy fulfills the other pledges a Scout is sworn to uphold, like: Friendly, courteous, cheerful, reverent and, most of all, kind.
