Que horror! President Noynoy Aquino failed to watch the Manny Pacquiao fight!

I mean, really, does one need to even make a press release about something one did not do? I’m referring to a recent statement issued by Malacañang with regard to the level of interest Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III has shown for a big event that had transfixed Filipinos over the last couple of days — the sixth-round knockout of Pinoy boxing champ Manny Pacquiao in the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez…

In an interview, Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said he and the President failed to watch the fight yesterday because Aquino was waiting for updates on search and retrieval operations of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on typhoon-hit provinces in Mindanao.

What is the message that Malacañang wants to bring across to Noynoy’s “bosses” by highlighting that the President did not watch the fight? It seems to me like more of a bad case of overcompensation for the President’s extensive history of slackness in the face of national crises — revelations of his late rising in the early days of his presidency, his dining at the Emerald Restaurant while Rolando Mendoza slipped into homicidal hysteria in 2010, and his reported partying with starlet Valerie Concepcion as Sendong devastated the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in 2011, among others.

It could also be a bit of presidential guilt over the veto of an additional Php5 billion allocation to the Calamity Fund that could’ve gone to enhancing the country’s state of disaster preparedness…

Kabataan Party-list Rep. Raymond Palatino pointed out Aquino’s veto message for the 2011 budget. There, Aquino said: “I caution the inclusion of pre-disaster activities such as preparation of relocation sites/facilities, and training of personnel engaged in direct disaster in the use of the Calamity Fund. While said purpose is laudable, the same must be weighed against the imperious need of maintaining sufficient provision under the Calamity Fund for actual calamities and prevent its full utilization for pre-disaster activities…”

…which, if you refer to the Law, could arguably be considered boderline criminal from the perspective of Republic Act 10121 also known as the “Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010” which clearly stipulates that the Calamity Fund be “used for disaster risk reduction or mitigation, prevention and preparedness activities such as, but not limited to, training of personnel, procurement of equipment, and capital expenditures.” The law also stipulates a punishment of up to 12 years imprisonment and “perpetual disqualification from public office” to offenders who happen to be public officers.

Whatever it may be, the appropriate reaction to these sorts of “statements” issued by Malacañang should be, well, whatever…. BS Aquino, after all, is the President who sees his constituents as his “boss”. If the boss likes watching a boxing match over a few beers, then by all means, join the boss and have a few beers while watching the boxing match. Whatever. The key to being a hot-shot chief executive is cutting-edge multitasking and recognising and managing priorities.

You won’t get judged for catching a great fight on TV in between doing imporant work if you enjoy an outstanding track record of doing your job well to begin with.

Clearly this raving homosexual couldn’t trust himself to watch a couple of half-naked men in a series of clinches and other physical encounters.

It’s too late. Aquino is not a leader. He never has been and never will be. Pretending he was working on a Sunday just doesn’t cut it. Anyone who believes him is simply a noytard.

So why did he won as president? Kung hindi sya lider, hindi sya mananalo. Problema sayo ayaw mong pagbigyan ng pagkakataon ang ibinoto ng nakararami

Johnny Derp

He only won because of his parent’s name. The mere fact that he didn’t do jackshit during his stint as a senator should already be an indication of his incompetence. Like I said before, you noytards prefer to remain in the dark. When the shit hits the fan for aquino, don’t come crying to us.

Johnny Derp,

For years I always quoted Obi Wan from first Star Wars (1977) movie. “Who is more foolish, the fool or the one who follows him.” I think that defines the whole Malacanang Communications Group including VLC better than any one sentence can.

Yep, that pretty much sums up the malacanang miscommunications group

Fishball, in a way you have you have my admiration. In my time here in GRP, its safe to say you have worked harder for the glory of your leader than Noynoy himself has worked in 53 years of living. You deserve some backhanded compliments.

Ya know why Noynoy won? Just because of his parents. But sadly, the millions who voted for him are nothing but idiots. Better to vote who has credentials and track record than last names. 😛

A minority win in an election does not a leader make. Propaganda (black/grey), false slogans and promises that enhances a cosmetic political figure is far and way below a genuine leader. Lead cannot compare to gold.

I dont care that p-noy is gay.
I do object that he is lazy, deceitful, hypocritical, self-interested, not very bright, and worst of all not even interested in the presidency/country, and it shows.

Gogs

As one blogger said last year being gay is not really an issue as long as he is not incopetent. Unfortunately he is both. The President’s problem is not just his Cabinet but his refusal to leave the closet.

Saying something that you did not do before somebody asks is clearly being defensive. Like the kid who being called by his mom and says, “I didn’t do it.” I like my American boss now as he says, ” I don’t care what you do with your time as long you give me what I need from you when I need it.” Clearly the mentality of “the one” is always to appear busy even with poor output. It doesn’t matter to them if they deliver or not just as long as they can say, hell, I was busy….Since they were… Read more »

Someone said to me he was at the Elton John concert sometime during the weekend. Now Lacierda is saying that “Aquino was waiting for updates on search and retrieval operations of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on typhoon-hit provinces in Mindanao.”

This is very odd, indeed.

Why the heck should I care if the Prez didn’t see the fight? It’s not a big deal, I miss a family lunch with my mom and female siblings, but I’m not weeping, wailing and tearing my hair just because I miss it. Sheeeesh what a moron……

Devastation in the south due to typhoon Pablo; Pacquiau being knocked out — indications that the Filipino people are paying for the vicious criminal acts of Gloria Arroyo and her family. These evil people should be fed to the rats until their last breath. End the misfortune of the Filipino people.

I agree with you. The Filipinos deserve better than to be mere recipients of the karma caused by the criminal acts of the Arroyos.

Sorry, but you missed the point. Stop the Gloria blame game and look at the bigger picture. In fact, Ma. Victoria Cruz is more evil and more vicious than the Arroyo family by spreading lies and deceit. Only a emotionally disturbed FRAUD would think such a thing.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VALIDATING THE TRUTH about your idiotic, repeat black propaganda and vilification in trying to connect the Pablo calamity and even the defeat of Pacman to GMA. The Ministry of Propaganda is so stupid in even hiring dumb people like you to try manipulating free, independent and discerning minds. Epic fail!

Johnny Derp

Just goes to show that the malacanang trolls are already getting desperate. Their logic is too insane to actually work

RF Garcia
Guest

Ma Victoria Cruz(maybe you are another alias of swagger): Could you please tell us just exactly how PGMA is connected to the defeat of Pacman and the damage wrought by Typhoon Pablo? You are outdoing your boss who blames Pres Arroyo for every tragedy or misfortune that befalls the country.

I think those of us who have rather harshly reacted to the skewed national sense of priorities might have struck a little bit of a nerve in the palace marketing dept. They’re just not smart enough to come up with a coincidence. (And I’m ascribing this to the marketing dept., because obviously N/A isn’t smart enough to come up with this canard on his own).

Swagger says “so why did he won as president”? GRP readers, you will know that the comment is not from the real RF Garcia because he does not make such outrageous grammatical murder. I am sorry GRP for thinking you mixed up my comments. It looks like Swagger is faking other commenters. If you notice all the regular and legitimate commenters of GRP led by Benigno and Ilda never commit such grammatical errors.

Vergil

It seems that swagger guy is getting…. very desperate. 😛

Swagger is too stupid to realize that he has already lost this one. Faking commenters is a sign of desperation to sow discord in GRP but it failed.

Don’t worry RF, that stupid troll won’t be impersonating us anymore since Ilda and the rest of the GRP crew aren’t that easy to be fooled by petty tricks by those stupid trolls.

My first impression while reading the article/blog: “Should I really care?” I mean, what am I suppose to think? He was partying while the Luneta Incident is taking place, Hong Kong people hating our laboring Pinay housemaids. I have lost respect for this man (?) since then. I may hate the last one, but this one’s doing more damage than what he promised during campaign. Such a trapo – thinking his words will be moving people. “Walang pagbabago,” is what I have seen so far.

Johnny Saint
Guest

“Walang pagbabago” is an understatement. Engaging in revenge politics and repudiating agreements entered into by the previous administration for no other reason than that they have the name of Gloria Arroyo attached to them only diminishes the reputation of the Philippines. It characterizes Filipinos as procrastinating, unreliable and dishonest.
