Arroyo Guns for Congress, Draws Barrage of Criticism

The decision of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to run for the 2nd Congressional District of Pampanga drew fiery criticisms from several sectors. 

I'm amused by the decision of the president, but well, The Madame from Malacañang has always been amusing, or I should say - annoying.

I compiled several flowery criticisms that were hurled against her. Here they are:

Roman Catholic Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz: “addiction to power.”

Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo: "I wholeheartedly suggest she give others a chance to serve and not give in to the temptation of power.”

Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II: "Her ultimate goal is to become House Speaker and ram through her burning desire to change the Constitution."

Sen. Francis Escudero: “it surely leaves a bad taste in the mouth.”

Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel Jr: “sets a horrible example for politicians to follow,”

Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Satur Ocampo : “The main burden there would be on the voters.”

Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño: “She is drunk with power and can’t get enough. I think she needs professional help.”

Rep Casiño may have hit the nail right smack on the head!
