obama-arroyo meeting: talks can touch on arroyo’s legacy (patay tayo dyan!)

July 30, 2009 Leave a comment

obama being elected as the first black president has made history in the US in a most major way. his taking on the presidency has inspired not only the whole nation of the america  but also many other countries around the world.

arroyo is the president of the philippines, a third world country where even her countrymen do not see favor in her. arroyo’s performance ratings have been on the negative quarter to quarter for many years based on nationwide surveys. her trust ratings has gone through the same dismal performance.

arroyo has violated the constitution a few times. election cheating has been a lingering issue that continue to be an open wound  where no closure has been achieved either way. allegations of corruption have been hurled a few times over  many years.

and the latest one is the unsaid plans of arroyo after 2010 – will she step down from power and transfer it to the next elected president of the country? arroyo would have laid that one ot rest in her last SONA but chose to pussyfoot on it.

if obama touches on arroyo’s legacy will be touched on as the State Department executive has said – what will obama say? what will arroyo say?

will arroyo whip up a powerpoint presentation too?
