president noynoy aquino’s SONA.2, july 25, 2011 – defining or redefining the presidency?

presidentiable noynoy aquyino defined his campaign through these 5 words : “kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap” . and these 5 words got presidentiable noynoy elected. the people believed him and because we have been having years of gloria macapagal arroyo and we have always suspected her of corruption. arroyo was one of the country’s most unpopular president, if not the most unpopular with back to back to back negative performance ratings through the years in performance as president.

noynoy aquino, promising no more corruption and removing it to lead us to progress got him elected.

from the presidential elections, aquino carried that through his first year in office, time and again exposing the newly discovered corruption cases committed by arroyo and government officials under her.

it may not have been intentional on his part, but that is how aquino has defined his first year in office.

on his second year of office, we could be seeing another definition of his administration or he will redefine it.

aquino in his second SONA, has redefined his administration as single mindedly pursuing those who  he said continue to have the “utak wang-wang”.

Kayo po ba gusto ninyong makulong ang lahat ng tiwali? Ako rin. Gusto ba ninyong matanggal ang wang-wang, hindi lamang sa kalsada, kundi sa kaisipang nagdulot ng baluktot na sistema na pagkatagal-tagal na nating pinagtiisan? Ako rin. Gusto po ba ninyong mabigyan ng patas na pagkakataon ang lahat na umasenso? Ako rin.

aquino believes corruption or it’s removal from the fiber of philippine culture in governance needs to be his priority and something he he should succeed in.

we see the value and importance in aquino’s obsession to remove the utak wang-wang in philippine government. the recent weeks have shown us how top government officials during the arroyo administration wantonly and blatantly stole, misused or misappropriated billions upon billions of pesos meant for the people and the service of the people.

May mga nagsasabing pinepersonal ko raw ang paghahabol sa mga tiwali. Totoo po: Personal talaga sa akin ang paggawa ng tama, at ang pagpapanagot sa mga gumagawa ng mali—sino man sila. At hindi lamang dapat ako ang namemersonal sa usaping ito. Personal dapat ito sa ating lahat, dahil bawat Pilipino ay biktima nito.

corruption to aquino is a personal thing and he says it should to be to the rest of us. we should not be forgiving and just let things go because corruption was committed in the past. it is not a matter of let by-gones be by-gones. corruption affects each of us.

aquino did not redefine his presidency. what he did was to restate what he had said during his first SONA and what he said during the presidentiables campaign. in his second SONA, aquino has confirmed with us his obsession with corruption or  its removal  from government.

that is both a good thing and a bad thing.

it is a good thing as we all know philippine history on governance is full of stories of corruption, small to multi-billion types of corruption. the recent string of revelations on corruption during the arroyo admin has shown to us how rampant it was and how much it had cost the country and taxpayers. government officials under the arroyo admin took billions of pesos from whatever source they could lay their hands on.

we have heard of allegations of corruption at the AFP, department of agriculture, the PCSO, PAGCOR, DPWH and of course the BIR and the bureau of customs. aside from officers of these government agencies stealing money, we have also heard of money being used for the election of arroyo and the children of some of the government officials.

corruption being everywhere and in big numbers, making it as a priority or even as an obsession is a good thing.

it is a bad thing as fighting corruption or even removing it is a very lofty goal and it’s impact on the daily lives of pinoys are hard to imagine.

when aquino says he wants to remove utak wang-wang, how do we measure his success at it? do we measure it in terms of the number of times he mentions it in his speeches? or the number of corruption cases revealed by officers of government to the press? or do we measure it in terms of number of cases filed with the ombudsman? what about conviction or the number of people put to jail?

of course the true measure of success in his drive to remove utak wang-wang from governance is if it actually stops and all funds meant for the people are actually spent for the people.  that sounds easy enough but if we are to use as basis arroyo’s admin, we are finding out corruption committed during her term after her term, not during.

    As a student, I believe in President Noynoy Aquinos abilities to lead us from corruption to a better lifestyle. His year has been very memorable especially to those ones whom he helped. He said about those who were poor and those who don’t eat would have a much better chance to live a much better life than the past. Every Filipino has been yearning for this kind of freedom and life. Now all of us Filipino’s will have a much, much better life and no more corruption! VERY WELL SAID!!😀

  6. July 25, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    At first I am a pro Noynoy..

    as a filipino we all know what happening and what happened to our country since then..

    Maraming naiwang bahid ng karumihan at bahid ng kasakiman kung kaya’t hindi pa lahat ng pangako ng ating kasalukuyang presidente at nangyayari dahil kailangan muna niya linisin laht ng mga hindi magagandang bagay na iniwan ng mga nakaraang administrasyon..

    Bilang isang Pilipino dapat tayong makiisa at makipag tulungan upang makamit ang isang mithiin yan naman ang gusto ni President Aquino..

    Kung siya ba ay hindi nanalo maisisiwalat pa kaya ang mga bahong lihim?

    Tumataas ang bilihin nag hihirap ang maraming mamayan ng bansang pilipinas

    pero kapatid,

    Tiis tiis lang muna dahil magiging maayos din ang lahat.,

    Magtiwala at maniwala higit sa lahat ay manampalataya!

    ayon sa ating presidente

    “Mahirap magsimula ang usapan habang mayroon pang amoy ng pulbura sa hangin. Nananawagan ako: huwag po natin hayaang masayang ang napakagandang pagkakataong ito upang magtipon sa ilalim ng iisang adhikain.”

    “Mabigyang-buhay sana ang mga batayang prinsipyo ng inyong bokasyon: ang magbigay-linaw sa mahahalagang isyu; ang maging patas at makatotohanan, at ang itaas ang antas ng pampublikong diskurso.”

    “Tungkulin po ng bawat Pilipino na tutukan ang mga pinunong tayo rin naman ang nagluklok sa puwesto. Humakbang mula sa pakikialam tungo sa pakikilahok. Dahil ang nakikialam, walang-hanggan ang reklamo. Ang nakikilahok, nakikibahagi sa solusyon.”

    “Maganda na po ang nasimulan natin. At mas lalong maganda po ang mararating natin. Ngunit huwag nating kalimutan na mayroong mga nagnanasang hindi tayo magtagumpay. Dahil kapag hindi tayo nagtagumpay, makakabalik na naman sila sa kapangyarihan, at sa pagsasamantala sa taumbayan.”

    “Akin pong paniwala na Diyos at taumbayan ang nagdala sa ating kinalalagyan ngayon. Habang nakatutok tayo sa kapakanan ng ating kapwa, bendisyon at patnubay ay tiyak na maaasahan natin sa Poong Maykapal. At kapag nanalig tayo na ang kasangga natin ay ang Diyos, mayroon ba tayong hindi kakayanin?”

    “Ang mandato nating nakuha sa huling eleksyon ay patunay na umaasa pa rin ang Pilipino sa pagbabago. Iba na talaga ang situwasyon. Puwede na muling mangarap. Tayo nang tumungo sa katuparan ng ating mga pinangarap.”

    —————————————————————————————————————

    A united country will achieve a excellent goal!

    Sana naman,,magkaroon ng mas maayos na pamamalakad sa bansa, at ipakita ng pangulo ang mga proyektong ginagawa nya na pakikinabangan ng lahat..sana ay magawan ng paraan ng pangulong iligtas ang mga OFW na nsa death row….

    Slow but sure! Simple than corrupt.

    I think those who are finding PNoy’s actions as slow are finding difficulty in understanding how grave the situation is. Corruption, deceit and evil is almost part of government service. The correction will not be fast, nor easy.

    Even some of the press are either contributors or part of the evil, corruption or deceit.

    A real change will mean a change from within. Total. Pnoy alone won’t do it. The challenge is for all of us to do what we should. Give up our interest that hurts the country. Even if it means giving up comfort, wealth and income!

    i hope president noy will do his job well, im also hoping that he will do all his promises to our country, as a student, i will trust him… sana mas mgkaroon pa ng kaayusan sa bansa.

  15. July 27, 2011 at 9:22 am

    hindi naman talaga dapat sa corruption lang mag focus si p-noy,,,,, marami pa kasing ibang field sa government natin ang dapat nyang aksyonan……….ang corruption sa bansa natin ay nagsimula pa yan noon….. i think sa panahon pa yata yan ng mga kastila.. nandyan na yan… basi na rin sa aking mga pananaliksik…..so mahirap talaga mawala yan………lalo pat naka ugat nayan sa ating gobyerno…. everyone of us is a corrupt, hindi lang natin alam yon…………….kasi mas inuuna natin tingnan ang iba kaysa tingnan ang mga sariliu natin……………………………………………………….

    YES IT IS A FAST CHANGING WORLD.. yet we cannot yet rate PNOY right now cause he is just starting.. let us wait and see his accomplishments maybe three or more years because being a President of this country is definitely a hard position that a Filipino person can handle..

    Sa takbo ngayun ng gobyerno nakikita ko ang pag usad ng kaibahan. pero may kunting pagka dismaya sa SONA. i think PNOY must talk about the RH bill and the hacienda luisita. but in my part i could just continue on your good works Pnoy

    Sa mga mahilig mag rally, naku… kahit sino namang presidente ang iluklok dyan lagi nlng tlaga umuusad ang rally kahit saan. siguro sa isang taon na presidente si Noynoy, totoo, napakamarami pa ang naghihirap, wag naman lng sana i asa ang lahat sa gobyerno, matuto din tayong magkaisa… hindi man ngayon, pero tiwala akong unti’unting uunlad ang Pilipinas kung lahat disiplinado’t masikap :)) Godbless..

    Granted that the anomalies of the Arroyo Administration are true,where does it leave us?
    Yes. Pakulong natin si GMA dahil corrupt siya, yayaman ba tayo dahil nakulong si GMA?
    The proposed Bills are not tackled because kailangan munang pag tuonan nang pansin ang anomalies nang Arroyo Administration. At the end of PNOY’s walang matinong batas ang ma aapprovahan its because mali ang priority natin.

  26. July 29, 2011 at 11:36 am

    JUST GIVE PRES., AQUINO A CHANCE TO PROVE TO HIMSELF THAT HE IS WORTHY TO BE OUR LEADER. AS WHAT HE SAID “KAYO ANG AKING BOSS”. SO JUST RESPECT HIS DECISION AT THIS PART, BECAUSE THAT’S THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO AT THIS MOMENT.

      They dont check their own self if are the things that they need to improve.
      They always tend to give criticisms to others not knowing that they were not also perfect.

    first and foremost…i was really disappointed to what pres. aquino did…he said that we are the boss but then the boss he was saying were really felt hunger…toll fees, nfa prices increased and many more… how can we his boss? or his boss are those businessman who promised to elect him but in return he will forgive those profit that they want to earn? maybe he’s doing that for our economy..but then its really hard for us to understand why we need to suffer…, i am just a student, maybe the time is not enough for pres Aquino, i’ll wait those promises to become true.
