Is Taglish the only language Leni Robredo can speak?

Can anyone actually imagine “vice president” Leni Robredo sitting in front of another head of state discussing serious matters of global consequence?

It becomes even harder to imagine after watching her speak in yet another one of her pabebe tirades before her adoring minions in the media. Check out this video of her carrying on about the sore boot mark President Rodrigo Duterte planted on her rear end last weekend.

Yeah…

Taglish pa more, Leni Robredo!

One wonders how her chi-chi fans from the Ateneo can even stand hearing her speak without getting their Manglapusian sensibilities offended. Robredo may get away with her colegiala accent but, if one is able to look past that, it is evident she simply cannot stitch a full English sentence together.

Now that shortcoming simply cannot pass the Ateneo standard of excellence in the communication arts, folks. Then again, are Ateneans willing to overlook that and embrace the pedestrian manner of speaking Robredo seems to be comfy with?

There are bigger questions that this last small question raise. Put aside for a moment the electoral fraud allegations that put into question her legitimate claim to the office of the Vice President. Robredo being “vice president” (for now) is just a heartbeat away from the Philippine presidency. Imagine for a moment what it would be like having a president that talks the way she does — perpetually like a schoolgirl making sumbong to her titas in ABS-CBN while making tusok-tusok the fishballs. I don’t think Vladimir Putin would be impressed.

More important than her language skills is the question of whether or not she actually possesses the chops to elevate her discourse. It is difficult to find evidence that she could actually step back from her petty telegenic dramas and talk about the big issues from a plane of thinking a bit higher than the couple of notches above Kris Aquino-speak her level of discourse is currently situated.

And still we wonder why the Philippines currently suffers from a particularly sticky form of intellectual bankruptcy.

Right there before us in “vice president” Leni Robredo is the encapsulation of the root of this acute collective intellectual deficit that crushes any hope that the Philippines will be a world-class country in the near- to mid-term future.

Can somebody explain to me what “Manglapusian” means? Where did this expression come from? This is the first time I heard it.

Apparently, its origin is from one of the great alumni of Ateneo, former senator Raul Manglapus. He was one of those who had that “Arrneow” accent and possessed a very high level of intelligence. He is best remembered as the composer of “Mambo Magsaysay”.

This is the reason the Philippines remains a third world country…most of our leaders, like Leni Rob redo are intellectually bankrupt. It began with that Cory Aquino, a clueless housewife, who became President. Now, we have again a clueless housewife, who want to become President. We are already mired in a country, that is not being developed, and not progressing. Because, we choose these leaders;or these leaders, cheat their way, to these positions in government. Able , educated and experienced Filipinos migrate to foreign countries, draining our country of most of the talented people… I think, the ordinary GRP blogger… Read more »

I think Leni Robredo’s hilaw na colegiala way of speaking English is a product of spending too much time with yellow elites. (Plus, Kris Aquino was her top campaign donor, so baka nahawa siya.) Remember, Robredo is a country mouse from Bicol who only got thrown into the beso-beso cliques of Metro Manila after the Liberal Party decided to build her up as a replacement for Grace Poe. Robredo obviously wasn’t used to speaking English in her normal everyday life in the past. But since this is how her socialite backers talk, she tries to emulate them to fit in.… Read more »

I see I see, all good points. Yes yes, she does have a similar star appeal to Grace Poe. No wonder she was hurried in by the LP right after Grace said no to Mar. The woman basically compromised all the values her Jesse Robredo stood for.

I feel really bad for her late husband. If there is an afterlife he would be scratching his head with her shenanigans.

She didn’t even forgone proper investigation on her husbands conspcious death….

Maybe she knows something like how the stupid cory aquino never pushed further investigation on the assassination of her traitor husband ninoy, whom mostlikely they sacrificed to use their names…

Robredo is an idiot. Female counterpart of that Noynoying cretin. That people actually support her makes for a great number of idiots. IDIOTS.

Language is my whore, my mistress, my wife, my pen-friend, my check-out girl. Language is a complimentary moist lemon-scented cleansing square or handy freshen-up wipette. Language is the breath of God, the dew on a fresh apple, it’s the soft rain of dust that falls into a shaft of morning sun when you pull from an old bookshelf a forgotten volume of erotic diaries; language is the faint scent of urine on a pair of boxer shorts, it’s a half-remembered childhood birthday party, a creak on the stair, a spluttering match held to a frosted pane, the warm wet, trusting… Read more »

Anong cheap clothes? You obviously haven’t kept track of the “VP”. Besides, it’s only fair. Yellowtards get to nitpick on some promdi, “crass” president after all. So yeah. Helps to put a bit of balance and perspective to things.

You do not elevate the discourse by being petty, even in retort.

Pallacertus,

Perhaps, you guys should learn to think outside the LP Yellow box——that’s a start. We need such “reformers” as Digong who’d stir the pot & shake us, especially the ole’ oligarchic powers-that-be, all off that rut.

I don’t even give a shit about your yellowed obsessions, I give a shit that you’d shoot people down because of their choice of fucking language with which to communicate fucking things to fucking people who aren’t as up into fucking English as you hoity-toities obviously fucking are, of all fucking things.

Our country needs a good leaders to lead us… We cannot solve our country’s problems, and go forward with “Pa Charming” politicians.

Most of those “Pa Charming” politicians has nothing in their heads…”lahat Pa Charming”…E… Bobo pala !

We can think outside the box; but most politicians cannot think like some of us !

Now Leni Robredo says she wants to “reach out” to President Duterte. http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/591643/news/nation/robredo-to-still-reach-out-to-duterte-even-after-resignation-from-cabinet She says this less than a day after her platinum sponsor and mother figure, Loida Nicolas Lewis, ranted on TV for President Duterte to resign so Robredo could replace him. The screws on the heads of these two yellow Bicolana widows are really coming loose. After throwing a huge public tantrum over her removal from the Duterte Cabinet, and after insinuating that the President is a killer, a misogynist, a dictator, etc etc, Robredo now wants to “reach out”? Is she insane? Of course she is. Check… Read more »

If she can’t even be smart for the sake of not getting kicked out from the cabinet, how will this “lawyer” fight for their “cause”? How can she lead a country with such ineptitude? If you’re going to act brave, atleast be smart about it, or else masisipa ka talaga.
About Duterte seemingly protecting the police involved in Espinosa’s death, it could be that some of them were only following their superior’s order and are not involved in drugs. Plus Du30 protecting police morale

A Dreyfus affair in our shores is gonna be the last thing that can possibly boost police morale.

The imposition of death penalty has been suspended since 2006, with the enactment of Republic Act No. 9346, or “An Act Prohibiting the Imposition of Death Penalty in the Philippines.”

IS THAT THE YEAR WHEN DRUGS PROLIFERATION WENT UP IN THE PHILIPPINES? IT’S A CONSPIRACY.

Who gives a shit what language she speaks. Did she get elected or not? If so, let her do her job. If not, someone shoul go get the bitch out of the way.

…not elected. She cheated her way into office. Let’s make that crystal clear.

Kinikilig na naman si Leni Robredo because President Duterte just said she will “finish the rest of her term”. Robredo, Kiko Pangilinan, Inquirer, and the rest of the yellow media wasted no time issuing statements “thanking” President Duterte for his “assurance”. This is yet another example of how delusional the yellows are. They only hear what they want to hear. It is the PET/Supreme Court that has the power to remove Robredo, not Duterte, so Robredo is by no means off the hook. Duterte knows this, that’s why he said what he said. He doesn’t need to remove her, because… Read more »

OK, so GRP doesn’t like this chick, WE GET IT ! Can you guys do an article that is nit ANTI-AQUINO/YELLOW?

The sky-highest electricity prices that Duterte is doing NOTHING ABOUT, for example?or the oligarchic illegak front-running of the stock-market 24/7 ? HUH?
We have figured out you don’t like Aquino, how about addressing some of the countries other problems, FFS?

Dear, just like purging Marcos created a utopia, purging Aquino would create… a utopia within a utopia.

Here’s today’s serving of Lengua de Leni, from this GMA News report where Leni Robredo tries once again, in her signature taglish, to deny that she’s eyeing the presidency: http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/591929/news/nation/robredo-to-cayetano-voicing-opposition-does-not-mean-i-want-to-be-president Leni Lengua of the Day 1): “Hindi ko sasabihin na kapag nag-di-dissent tayo, tayo na ‘yung gustong maging pangulo.” Leni Lengua of the Day 2): “For this administration to succeed, tingin ko mahalaga na pinakikinggan din nila ‘yung mga dissenting voices.” Leni Lengua of the Day 3): “Mas ganado tayo magsuporta (sa pangulo) kapag alam natin na pinapakinggan din naman ang ating mga pag-oppose sa ibang mga issues.” Hay naku… Read more »

Aleng Leni Robredo gave the right answer though that she doesn’t have the political skill to oust the president. Literally doesn’t have the political skill to be in her position and exactly the reason her partymates are pushing her to the presidency. You usually pick the weak one to do your bidding. Yung madaling utus-utusan at di magamit ng husto ang utak.
