Memo To: Presidentiable Mar Roxas – after arroyo’s SONA 2009 – shut the fuck up!

Memo to: Presidentiable Mar Roxas,

Mr. Roxas, we did hear president arroyo say these things about you:

The President minced no words against Senator Manuel Roxas, a presidential aspirant who had been criticizing her over the implementation of the cheaper medicines law.

“To those who want to be President, this advice: If you really want something done, just do it, do it hard, do it well, don’t pussy-foot, don’t say bad words in public,” she said.

Arroyo said her support for the tougher version of the law at the House of Representatives over the weaker version of the Senate, spearheaded by Roxas, resulted in a 50-percent cut in the prices of 16 essential drugs.


We understand that those are words that should have not been uttered by the president of the country to a senator. We also understand that you probably felt stung by it.

But we have this to say to you – shut the fuck up!

We advise you to let it go. We think that should you find the need to say something, say something magnanimous and with prime statemanship. Show the country you are no longer the angry man we saw say “putang ina” in a rally of thousands in makati.

Take pride in the fact that you are one of the few presidentiables that arroyo felt the need to mention in her SONA. That can only mean you have been effective in your stand on arroyo and in particular the low priced medicine law.

Arroyo unwittingly made you appear as the front runner for the presidentiable election in 2010.

Letting it go or giving a reply with humility and statemanship will improve your image.

Please Mr. Roxas, do not forget for now, shut the fuck up!

Yours truly,



PS :

Mr. Mar Roxas;

We suggest you send President Arroyo a beautiful bouquet of roses tomorrow morning as a thank you. That will earn you many points.

Take the opposite side of what arroyo showed in her SONA – be a gentleman and show humility. You do not need to say anything. Just send her the flowers and sign your name. 

Take arroyo’s uncalled for tirade against you (and the opposition) in a very different tact. What she said was uncalled for and did at all fit the spirit and intent of the SONA.  Make her appear as evil.

    to me, the suggestion given is indeed NOT a win-win situation:
    a.) if he blabbers about anything (which is what he constantly does), it would be unwise, unintelligent and “unpresidentiable” of him
    b.) if he keeps silent (which is quite impossible) and sends the president some roses because of some “political” advice, it would be hypocritical, unnatural and mysterious. So “artista” and so “showbiz”.

    i guess we just have to leave him with what his natural reactions will be. the way he will handle this situation will reflect his natural self and thus, in a bigger picture, would tell if he has the “caliber” and “attitude” to be the next president. it will at least give us an idea. 🙂

      roxas in fact has done the statesman-like response to the SONA attack done by arroyo. he said he is “not paying attention to such attacks” and just stayed on the message he has been giving on the cheaper medicine law.

      he did not react in any bombastic way. click here: https://2010presidentiables.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/presidentiables-reaction-to-arroyos-sona-2009/

    To MAR ROXAS — Huwag ka na mag-comment… and stop talking about it. If you respond so much, people would be more curious of what you uttered during that rally. and I tell you that is not nice to hear and you will be judged as unbecoming of a presidentiable.
