Memo To: presidential spokespersons – shut the fuck up! you just admitted arroyo is evil and a failure
Dear Presidential Spokesperson,
We have one sentence for you – SHUT THE FUCK UP!
We are absolutely shocked to read the September 11 news article by PDI when it had the sub-headline “GMA men: 2010 not a battle of good vs evil”
My first reaction to that was – what the hell are you freaking doing? That statement alone means Malacanang through the presidential spokesperson Gary Olivar sees that in the 2010 election, there is a faction who is “good” and there is a faction who is “evil”.
Rewind to just a few months ago and we remember the famous words of Secretary Romulo Neri – “GMA is evil.” Ding! Ding! Ding! Was Olivar referring to the president he serves as the “evil one”?
If Olivar thought that, why did you have to say it? Would it not have been best to just leave that tiny detail out? Must you say it?
Well, okay, Olivar may not actually have said those words but the implication was very clear and what may may have been inadvertently said without meaning to.
This is what Olivar said:
“Don’t run (at the expense) of this little lady who’s done her best for this country in the last eight years. Magpakalalaki naman kayo (Be a man),” Gary Olivar, deputy presidential spokesperson, said at a briefing.
In announcing his candidacy, Aquino on Wednesday criticized Ms Arroyo, his former economics professor at Ateneo de Manila University, for “forgetting what she had taught me.” He promised a more efficient use of government resources should he win in 2010.
Olivar blasted Aquino and other presidential hopefuls from the opposition for supposedly turning the presidential race into a battle of “good versus evil.”
“Nobody has the monopoly of right and wrong on either side right?” he said in Filipino.
By inference, that says Olivar is bewailing the perception that his boss’ “best” is not enough for the people.
The words “good versus evil” in that article is a direct quote, followed by an explanation that nobody has a a monopoly of “right and wrong”. Those by implication admits Olivar is thinking the “evil” one and the one who has a monopoly of doing “wrong” is his boss, President Arroyo.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Did you really have to say that?
Again, we think it is absolute incompetence to admit even through a very strong inference that your boss, the president is evil, has not done good things and does the wrong things. Keep those things to yourself and say only good things about your boss.
Once again, the staff of President Arroyo screwed up. Why must you say things about other presidentiables? Arroyo is not running for president. No need to say anything. Let Aquino and all the other presidentiables be.
One sentence : SHUT THE FUCK UP!
