ON MY WATCH
By Manuel L. Caballero
If the intention of the Marcos administration is to ruin the image of former VP Leni Robredo by any means (like then candidate BBM's "winning" by any means), I think they will fail.
Soon, it will be three months after the elections, but still, the supporters of the ex-VP or the Kakampinks are as intense as ever in their love and support for the former Vice President. Read the angry comments in FB against Calida's first salvo vs. the Former VP.
Kung baga sa sundalong lalong tumatapang habang nasusugatan, si Ex VP Leni naman ay lalong minamahal at ipinaglalaban habang sinisiraan.
Remember 2 separate instances in recent past when the Communications Secretary of Pres. Duterte gave his boss false information which at the end, made Duterte issue a public apology to VP Leni and to Atty. Loida Nicolas Lewis? The Secretary, as a result, was given a desk job afterwards.
How about the filing of insurrection case against VP Leni and the opposition senatorial bets in the 2019 elections which was dismissed for lack of merit. The stupidity of those who filed the case was blamed on their Boss, who was the President.
So, the lesson? Dapat mag-ingat ang mga evil-minded sipsip.
According to a news report from Manila, some 21,000 soldiers will be deployed to secure Pres. Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. on SONA day on July 25th. That's equivalent to 21 battalions or 428 platoons. Napakarami bang banta at galit? Sabi nya, 31 million daw ang bumoto sa kanya? Bakit ganun kadami ang security?
