Noynoy should show consideration to global audience

GMA, despite having a speaking voice that sounds like a cat being sanded, used to do a pretty good job. Mix it up a bit. Look, it's mainly a report to the nation from its President, so certainly [President Aquino] should speak in a manner which as much of his audience as possible can understand. But this kind of speech also has a large external audience. Delivering it strictly in the native language is a signal from him that he has no message he wants to give the Philippines' regional neighbors, the world at large, or potential investors.
