Noynoy Aquino is going to go down in history as the Philippines WORST PRESIDENT ever having been the most anti-reform president who refused to make any progress towards causing absolutely necessary constitutional reforms to happen, and plus his riding on his predecessors achievements despite his constant badmouthing and blaming her.
And this takes the cake....He was also the worst when it came to dealing with hostage situations.
Just barely a few weeks into his term, he was hit by the Luneta Bus Hostage Crisis which turned into a massacre when it shouldn't have! It should have been really easy to fix that issue...
The hostage-taker wasn't asking for money. He just wanted to know that his case was going to be looked into. That was it. Very easy to solve.
There was absolutely no gesture on the part of Noynoy to show that he cared about trying to save their lives and get them all free. Nothing like that whatsoever.
And theres the brouhaha about how Typhoon Haiyan was handled and the SAF 44 too. And there are many more.
The guy really was the most incompetent person ever to become President of the Philippines and even Erap Estrada was way better than Noynoy because at least Erap tried hard to get the anti-FDI restrictions of the 1987 Constitution removed through his CONCORD (CONstitutional CORrection for Development) initiative.
And whats ironic is that I USED TO BE A YELLOW. Yup. I used to be a die-hard Ninoy-Cory fan whod wear yellow and fanatically flash the Laban sign.
It was NOYNOY who made all that go away. Yes, Cory did a lot of crazy things too that diminished her standing in my eyes, like her anti-constitutional reform stance and a few other acts.
But when she died, on the day of her funeral, I forgot all about that and remembered the euphoria of Feb 25/26, 1986. On the day of Cory's funeral, for the last time, I wore yellow and flashed the Laban sign.
And then some idiots decided to float the idea of getting the incompetent Noynoy to run for office to capitalize on Cory's passing.
That's where the magic totally ended. No more yellow for me.
