I am not surprised…really!
Is this the third or the fourth dip in rating?
Ha, ha…I can now see a trend, visibly a downward trend…
The SWS noted that PNoy had the biggest dip in satisfaction rating here in Metro Manila. And satisfaction among women, also dropped to a “good” +41 from a “very good” +50. If ever there is a chance I will be asked by SWS, definitely I will rate him a dissatisfaction mark.
PNoy can only blame himself for his growing unpopularity, isolation and mounting discontent from the Filipino people. Why? Because he has done nothing since he took office two years ago. And nothing has changed since he took over the gearshift of government from the much-hated Arroyo government. Is PNoy gearing to become one of those hated Presidents?
For the past two years, he falls short to address the most basic demands and needs of the Filipino people, especially the impoverished masses. Nearly two years in office but the poor even live miserably:
a. Poverty has worsened to 55% in March from 45% last December 2011. That percentage translates to around 2M families (from 9.1 million to 11.1 million).
b. Hunger rose to 23.8% of families in the first quarter of 2012. The number of families that experienced involuntary hunger reached 4.8 million in March from December’s 4.5 million (22.5%).As a patriotic youth, I extremely detest PNoy’s display of extreme puppetry to the US government in allowing it to use the Philippines as a platform for its hegemonist drive in the Asia-Pacific region. Sobra-sobra ang pagpapakatuta sa Kano! PNoy allowed further travesty of our national sovereignty and patrimony by peddling the country’s interests to United States.
a. Providing US warships and submarines with virtual open access to Philippine waters without consideration to the policy of freedom from nuclear weapons as provided for in the 1987 Constitution.
b. Allowing the US armed forces to maintain a military base inside Philippine territory. The headquarters of the 700-strong Joint Special Operations Task Force (JSOTF)-Philippines is an exclusive zone within Camp Navarro, the main camp of the AFP's Western Command, in Zamboanga City.
c. Allowing the US military to direct AFP operations such as the US-guided dropping of a "smart bomb" supplied by the US in Basilan last February against what the US described in the media as "terrorists".As long as poverty and hunger persist, and PNoy remain to show his blatant puppetry to the US government, PNoy can expect a crash down in his ratings at greater speed. And his government will be rocked of massive protest actions. He must have learned lessons from his predecessors.
How about you, what rate will you give to PNoy?
