The latest Social Weather Stations survey showed that President Arroyo’s approval rating dropped to negative 23 percent – a nine-year low for Mrs. Arroyo. But Malacañang is questioning the credibility of the latest numbers saying the survey may have been bought from Quiapo.
GMA’s Rating II
President Arroyo’s approval rating plunged to –23 percent, a nine-year low for her administration. To obtain a higher rating in the next survey, President Arroyo’s political strategists have advised her to bathe in a sea of garbage and spend the next Christmas in the streets.
GMA’s Rating III
President Arroyo got her lowest approval rating in nine years. Apparently, President Arroyo’s negative image to most Filipinos has not changed… to which Sen. Richard Gordon said, “See? That’s what I am telling Noynoy Aquino. His family has been given several chances to change this country but they failed. Look at what his aunt Lupita has done to GMA!”
Don’t you find local politics exciting? Noynoy Aquino is fighting Manny Villar. Richard Gordon is fighting Noynoy Aquino. And Gilbert Teodoro is fighting Rico Blanco.
The Presidentiables II
Yeah local politics is heating up… and getting nasty! At a forum held Saturday at De La Salle-Zobel School in Alabang, Sen. Noynoy Aquino was asked to comment on his declining ratings based on the latest Social Weather Stations survey. Noynoy replied, “Ah, may survey na matino, may survey na nabibili siguro sa Quiapo” to which a displeased SWS official said, “Ah, may kandidatong matino, may kandidato sigurong utu-uto.”
The Presidentiables III
Recently, senators Richard Gordon and Manny Villar have been reportedly ganging up on fellow presidential candidate Sen. Noynoy Aquino. And if rumors are to be believed, Noynoy is hurting. He couldn’t believe that somebody other than his sister Kris could bully him like this.
