His "rape comment" may have been made in bad taste, but in the Philippines, its politicians' outward image tends to be the very opposite of his/her actual productivity. A "goody-goody" image doesn't translate into real improvement & security in the Philippines.
Look how much bloodshed has been left in the wake of "saint" Cory's & Noynoy's terms, due to incompetence & neglect, and especially too much priority given to image-building, vindictiveness towards (yet grabbing credits from) their political enemies?
Look how, the proverbial "coñio" boy, Mar tries so hard to look like the masses, yet fails miserably–Awkward & internally directionless, he believes the answer to his life's purpose lies within his family name (also, bad political move having Korina for a wife–best for Korina to stay out of the picture and lay low).
And then there is Binay, who pretends to care for the masses only to benefit from them personally—to ensure his own family's political and financial future, and so on.
Now, Duterte is the same guy who was/is productive & very effective in improving his own city.
I don't know about the rest of you, but aren't you tired of a lame duck president whose interior darkness has been cloaked with layers upon layers of image-building by his die-hard media spinsters, and yet crooks have been bolder, more audacious & violent under his watch?—I'd still feel way safer and secure with an effective crime fighter wearing a devil's mouth.
