Boo-Yay: Politics


Obama can learn from Arroyo, says Palace official.

Learn what, pray tell?

Look, this press release just reeks of self-aggrandizement to me. To say that one of the most promising presidents of all time needs to take pointers from GMA, whose approval ratings are consistently made of fail. I am not the harshest critic of GMA around, but to compare her to Barack Obama (Notwithstanding his haters.), and assume that she can teach Barack a thing or two?

Whatever they're smoking there, they better pass it along, because that's some pretty strong stuff right there. There's a phrase we tend to use for people like this, and I believe it's ANG KAPAL NG MUKHA. We are very much on the "wrong side of history", kiddies. Take notes.

This is one of the most brazenly self-serving statements I've ever read. For the life of me, I can't even understand what they were thinking when they came up with this crap.


It's amazing how powerful a statement was made when America finally installed Barack Obama as their first black president. While some detractors would call this "tokenism", it was clear from the get-go that Barack has an inexplicable kind of charisma that just draws people to him. What is unfortunate is the inevitable crop of copycats who will inevitably attempt to duplicate his success by duplicating his buzzwords and catchphrases.

Will Obama end up being one of the greatest presidents ever? Only time can tell, but for now, I am looking at it with much optimism. After eight years of Bush, the U.S. can stand to have something different now...

In the end, I really think that comparing this guy to GMA is just ludicrous. They are as far apart as can be, and one can only hope that he is worth the hype that has been trumpeted about him to near-mythic proportions...
