GMA Resigned To Her Unpopularity
There’s a saying that those who can’t stand the heat should get out of the kitchen.
Well, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and her men decided to do just that by spending the day in Boracay, savoring the cool breeze and walking barefoot on the therapeutically warm, and pristine white sand. as they went on a British-style ‘walkabout’.
Mrs. Arroyo, hardworking as she is, surely deserved the break, what with her Ombudsman busy parrying off an impeachment complaint and new survey results confirming Filipinos’ low, low regard for her and her administration.
Even her Press Secretary, seasoned brocast journalist Cerge Reemonde, took the easier tack of just accepting the new Pulse Asia findings as true.
Remonde chose not to belittle the survey, as his predecessors were wont to do, and simply mouthed Malacanang’s patented line that his boss remained “focused.”
One can almost detect a hint of resignation in Remonde’s remark.
“So be it,” he seems to be saying.
