Pres. Arroyo And Her Cha-Cha Con Game

March 26, 2009

Some people just don’t get it or have so forgotten their covenant with the people.

The con game that is the push for charter change is brazenly being pursued with Filipinos being told Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and her clueless lieutenants are just 20 votes shy of getting the required number of ayes to ram through a constituient assembly.

They can deny it to death, but with GMA herself playing the charade that she can’t meddle in the affairs of a separate branch of government, the charter change bull run, will now reportedly achieve its goal by June.

The Cha-cha proponents are oblivious to the pulse of Filipinos.

Today the Philippine Stay is reporting

:

Pulse Asia said “big pluralities to small majorities” (42 percent to 56 percent) across geographic areas and socio-economic groupings are against constitutional amendments now.

The exceptions are in Mindanao where indecision is the predominant public sentiment (41 percent) and Class E where almost the same percentages are either against or supportive of charter change (40 percent versus 37 percent).

And while there is an increase in the percentage of Visayans against constitutional amendments (+21 percentage points), a drop is recorded in Mindanao (-16 percentage points), Pulse Asia said.

The survey also showed that almost two out of every three Filipinos or 64 percent are of the view that it is not appropriate to have Charter change at the present time – a view shared by majorities (60 percent to 70 percent) in all geographic areas and socio-economic groupings.

Across geographic areas and socio-economic classes, 27 percent to 42 percent are open to amending the 1987 Constitution in the future while 24 percent to 40 percent are against Charter change at any time, Pulse Asia said.

The House of Representatives and the Senate are locking horn on this but Malacanang will take this all the way to the Supreme Court to insist the two legislative chambers can vote as one.

I’d like to take Secretary at his word but THE WORDS OF MALACANANG MUST BE MATCHED WITH ACTION AND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE GROUND.

As this corner knows, the Palace boys intend to leverage the administration’s superior numbers in the House to uppend the outnumbered Senators and then seal the coffin at the Supreme Court.

National perdition looms if ConAss does succeed with the 1987 Constitution’s Transitory Provision being raped to keep the little girl in power beyond 2010.

It was in November last year when the suspicions about Mrs. Arroyo extending her stay in office heated up after the previous Press Secretary, Jesus Dureza, delivered an off the cuff prayer on her staying on beyond 2010.
