When confronted with his absences in congress, Pacquiao replied that although he attended only a total of 4 sessions, he has been busy attending to the needs of his constituency i.e. building houses, basketball courts, what-have-you!
Gleaning from his statement, I can say that the F-ckman has no fucking clue of what his job is at all! If he believes that public service is building houses etc. to his constituency, then I will suggest, no plead with him to run for mayor or governor of his province where he can exercise a more direct approach public service. Legislation particularly the senate involves crafting legislative measures and overseeing the operation of government. Subjects which are way above the intellectual capacity and experience of Pacquiao! As Dirty Harry said, "A man got to know his limitations"!
Despite his "humble" public persona, Pacquiao in reality has a huge ego! He believe that he can be anyone that he wants to be and he can do everything he thinks he can do! Just look at what he is and is doing; an absentee congressman, a Bible quoting charlatan, a basketball player cum coach, a trying really hard singer, actor and TV personality, and soon-to-be senator!
To his supporters and the popularity oriented Filipino voters, ask yourselves this: What in the world will Pacquiao do in the Senate? With absolutely no experience when he was congressman, will he stand to interpellate and be interpellated? Will he quote mainly Biblical passages when defending his bills on the floor? Will he understand international treaties and conventions brought before him? Will he even attend sessions and committee meetings? Well, Let me tell you what he'll do in the Senate. He'll absent himself for 6 years and run for president after that!
