The Bitch Is Back

My dear President is at it again.

Gloria is soon heading to North American for an official visit. She sure loves to travel.

The Philippine President recently made headlines when one of her henchmen declared on national television that she would not be paying a visit to newly elected US President Barack Obama.

Apparently, Barack refused to answer Gloria’s phone calls on the day he won the election. Being true to form, GMA retaliated by not doing a courtesy call with the next leader of the free world.

Raft3r may not be a master in international relations. But I guess common decency is still widely practiced worldwide. One word: diplomacy.

There goes our so-called strong ties with the US.

On the side: News is Makati Mayor Binay is running for the top national post in 2010. Supporters named him the Pinoy Obama. Huh? Besides their skin tone, Raft3r couldn’t see any other similarity between the two.

Our leaders have been kissing the sweet posteriors of Republican presidents for way too long. It's about time they learned a thing or two about getting along with each other, regardless of political party lines.

Oh, what am I talking about? Party lines are nonexistent in this country.

And Binay, the next Obama? Please. I didn't realize change in the Philippines meant replacing a corrupt leader with someone whose corruption makes previous corrupt leader look like a newborn!

ganns, I could not have said it any better. Way to go, man!

Up to when is her presidential term again? Can't wait to see her go. She's been getting on my nerves since, like, forever.

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Like the song goes: It Ends Tonight. Hehe

Ano nga ba mapapala ni Obama if sinagot nya ang phonecall ni GMA? Couldn't really blame him if he chose to ignore her calls hehehe.
Re Binay, I can't see Obama in him too. He's brown but so what? Big deal:(

Raft3r said...

wendy, Hehe. Ewan ko ba dyan ke Binay.

TY for the information, bro.

Sometimes, di na maka-basa ng news bout our country. sad to say na di talaga maalagaan ng mga naging Pres. ang ating mahal na bayan.

Job well done.

I'll be back here to catch more infos

Obama with his clean image wouldn't want to be associated with GMA who would go down in Philippine history as the most corrupt leader.

Binay for President? This country's going nuts.

TheScud said...

liza said...

ako rin walang makitang similarity, natawa nga ako ng marinig ko yan. hehe

Raft3r said...

liza, Nyahaha. Iba talaga ang Philippine politics. Kakaiba. Hehe

laieesha said...

huh. so GMA's coming here? *prepares the cannon*

as much as i'd want to comment on politics or about the post, i really just don't have any political bone in my body. politics make me sleepy, which makes me the complete opposite of a certain relative of mine...

kengkay said...

nilulubos na ni GMA ang kanyang pagkakaupo sa trono para makapag travel at sempre ang pera e courtesy of pinoy pipol. ano naman kaya benefit ng travel na yan sa ating mga pinoy? hay buheyy - at para kay pinoy obama? pwedeng role yon sa movies, hehehe

Raft3r said...

laieesha, Hehe. Ako din di maano sa politics. Pero paminsan kelangan maging socially relevant. Hehe

kengkay, Puro byahe lang sya. Walang epekto saming mga taga dito. Hehe

I don't even see the similarity in the skin of Barack Obama and Jejomar Binay. The former's a hell lot cleaner. It's a shame the Philippines houses childish leaders. What was Arroyo thinking, anyway? Katangkaran ba sya to act that way?

Den, if you have time please take a peek at http://www.payperbiz.com, it's my work related blog:)

I was compelled to change Sonnet to Payperbiz that's why even if I'm signed in as Sonnet, Payperbiz appears.
