#Onyok's insight: Ultimately it is how #Filipinos FEEL about #PNoy that will make or break his administration


We are all trying to use our logical minds, but this is one time that we might as well listen to those who think more with their emotion. Maybe, with our logicality we are not the ones that could give a good picture of what might have transpired. My driver, whom we call Onyok, said a lot of things about Mamasapano which amused me. I am trying here to recall what he has said, and you will see that emo people have better gut-feel.

By way of intro, Onyok voted for P-Noy in 2010. He admired his president for not being involved in any scandal until the SC ruling on DAP when for the first time, he said: "Ay, magnanakaw din pala." Onyok was the one who put a yellow ribbon in my car because I could not tell him I was voting for Gibo. There was no point in explaining to him that Gibo had the best resumé and that party affiliation didn't mean a thing in PHL. If he knew I voted for Gibo, he would have deemed me unpatriotic since Gibo was associated with Gloria, who was to him the worst leader the PHL had. (I was happy with the DAP ruling because finally the yellow sticker in my car disappeared.)

Here is what Onyok said re Mamasapano:

1. As a reaction to the first press conference by Mar Roxas and Espina, Onyok could not believe what he was hearing. Mar Roxas and Espina were not in the loop and 44 SAF are dead. "Bakit nag-press pa sila? Aksaya oras yan ginagawa nila. Ngayon na alam na nila, bakit hindi nila sugurin agad yun kampo para maka-ganti na Bakit may imbestigasyon pa? Kalokohan!. Duda na ako dito kay Mar. Dapat resign sya o pa-unahan nya ang pagsugod. Basta hindi pwede babakla-bakla kung gusto nya maging presidente."

2. Probably after having his normal chit-chats with other drivers in drivers' lounges, or reading tabloids, or whatever sources he gets his info, or tsismis, he offers an opinion a day or two after. "Sir, sigurado sangkot ang presidente. May balita, pinigilan nya pala ang mga tropang sasaklolo sana para lang sa tinutulak nyang peace treaty. Wala na ata akong bilib kay P-Noy — natataranta na sya sa dapat gawin sa dami ng dapat asukasuhin. …..Kawawa naman yun Napeñas na malamang sumusunod lang ng utos ng taas."

3. "Bakit para atang nagtatago si P-Noy? Bata pa ata talaga utak nya. Hindi marunong pag naiipit."

4. As a reaction to the first #NANA. "Ma-utak din talaga eto si P-Noy. Iniwas nya sarili nya. Dadaanin lahat sa mga imbestigasyon, pwede naman sagutin lahat ng derechohan."

5. "Nandun si FVR, Erap, Roxas, Binay….halos lahat (in Villamor). Disgrasya, lalu sya pagdududahan."

6. "Bumawe, inisa-isa nya pamilya (of the SAF44). Baka sinusubukan nyang bilhin mga biyuda. …Malaking insulto kung sakali. Hindi naman lahat ng mahirap mukhang pera, hindi ba, sir?" Okay lang yun binili nya mga senador dahil dapat lang masipa yun Corona — si Corona ang dahilan kung bakit nawalan ng trabaho pinsan ko sa PAL."

7. "Kung yan Senado papalabasin na nag-aaway ang army at pulis, lusot si P-Noy." (What an insight, I would say.)

8. On the Senate Hearing. "Hindi ba tama ako, sir? –lumalabas hindi nagkakaintindihan army at pulis, lusot na si P-Noy. ….Mukhang milyun kapalit, sinasalo sya ni Purisima at Napeñas. …..umandar nanaman eto si Brenda (Miriam Santiago) — salbahe talaga eto si Purisima, pinahamak nya P-Noy. ….. Ewan ko, puros kasinungaling yan mga Muslim. ….talagang may tinatago si P-Noy, nagbobo-bobohan si Roxas, Gazmin at yun tatlong heneral. ….ano ba yan, kunwari lahat sila bobo, pwede ba yun? ….sayang si Grace Poe — napaka-intelihente pa naman. Bakit sya pumayag sumama sa sabwatan na pagtakpan si P-Noy. Bihira talagang mga mayayaman na may puso — pinabaya-an nila yun 44, tapos ngayon lahat sila puros drama lang."

9. "Bakit parang kaaway na nya yun mga biyuda. Sabi ko na nga ba, hindi sila pwedeng bilhin — nakahanap si P-Noy ng mga katapat nya. Akala ng Malacañang lahat nalang pera-pera. ….Eto si P-Noy, alam nyang makukulong sya pag lumabas ang katotohanan, kaya lahat na lang ng katarantaduhan ginagawa nila — mga gago sila. Dahil sa pera, wala silang pagmamahal sa mga Pilipino."

10. Then, he surprised me. "Mukhang tama kayo, sir. Dapat nga si Gibo presidente natin."

*****

P-Noy was voted into office by emotion. He will be undone by the same? We will see if this is true.
