Perhaps, let go of your fixation on Noynoy Aquino the person, step back, and regard him as a function. Then evaluate this function on the key parameters that describe the value of most functions - specifications, effectiveness, and consistency.
Aren't those the primary bases for acquiring or employing something for a purpose? Like say buying a car?
Perhaps you are too emotionally invested in Noynoy the person rather than logically critical of Noynoy the function. And that too is what is hindering you from engaging in a discussion about the man that is more mature and detached.
A lot of car buyers purposely buy lemons because of nostalgic reasons or for some other reason based on emotion. But the most practical folk buy cars to get from A to B (and THEN they buy the lemon, when they can afford to indulge). Filipinos, sad to say, cannot afford to indulge in anything, and yet that is exactly what they did when they elected the most unqualified man among the choices available at the time.
You have to decide which one of the two you are, with regard to this whole 'debate' about the Presidency.
