On Bonifacio Day, Noy bashing of GMA never ends

MANILA, Philippines - The bashing never ends.

Even on the occasion of Bonifacio Day, President Aquino would not let pass the chance to lambast his predecessor Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, under whose nine-year term the Philippines had been mired in poverty and endemic corruption.

During the kick-off celebration in San Juan City yesterday to commemorate the 150th birthday next year of Andres Bonifacio, Aquino said that he managed to do what was deemed to be impossible during those dark years of Arroyo’s reign.

“Because of our unity and concern for others, we are now tracking the straight path,” he said.

Aquino stressed that the Philippines is now free, be it from colonization or deeply rooted corruption and that the country is ready to fight for what it duly owns.

Early this month, Aquino’s tirades against Arroyo - now under hospital arrest on charges of plunder and electoral sabotage - were ratcheted up to the international arena, as he made a pitch before his colleagues in the Asia-Europe Meeting in Laos.

In a speech he delivered before members of the 9th ASEM in Vientiane, Aquino blamed the mess and economic woes the Philippines suffered on the Arroyo watch.

“We suffered during the Asian financial crisis, followed by the nine and a half years of misgovernance,” Aquino said during the summit.

our dear leader should just concentrate and march the hope of our countrymen on his achievements. none stop complaining and bashing is not a positive trait to be cultured. hard work is. the buck stops at you. and i do believe that corruption was very prevalent during gma's term but why is it the u n data says so otherwise. smuggling in the last 2 years is a thousand fold more than erap and gma.

Dapat dito sa reporter na ito lumipat na sa Opinion section. E, ano ngayon kung binabatikos ni PNoy si GMA? Hindi ba kabati-batikos naman talaga? Ano gusto mo, tigilan na dahil may braces ang leeg niya? O tigilan na para tuloy ang envelope sa inyo?

What Noy2 said about corruption during the gloria admin is 1000% Correct. The country is now going forward, and no matter what Noy2 critics says they are just whistling in the dark. Philippine economy is improving and FAST. The middle class is finally growing so are the rich Pinoys... There will always be the poor, every country on this earth have those...lets help them by giving them work NOT money..

I hope Noy would stop bashing GMA. Nababawasan na ang kumpyansa ko sa gobyerno just by this. He has spent half of his term criticizing the former administration. I think that by now, his administraion should be held responsible for whatever happens to our country now.

Abnoy, when will you ever stop blaming GMA? Why don't you just focus on your accomplishments and let history judge you. In the meantime, discipline your own self in quitting smoking before your addiction gets worse.

Image 7.1% GDP growth. Good job Pnoy and you have the license to bash the previous administration whose highest GDP growth attined for the last 9 years is only 4%. Next year the Filipino people will eventually feel the uplifting of their lives. GO Pnoy!!!

Bakit di siya nagsasasalita nung panahon ni GMA? Tignan mo narating nitong sina Chiz at Cayetano sa walang tigil na kakabatikos na ginawa nila nung congressman pa sila.

Wala kasing maipagyayabang kaya si GMA na lang ang dapat sisihin
