To The New President: Good Luck….
Okay you have won by a massive margin. Congratulations! The Philippines is in your hands by July. I applaud the fast results that wrecked the hopes of your opponents. You own the 2010 General Elections and you kicked their asses.
The Good! The Bad! The Ugly!
Now that you are president, you are in control of the Military. You now control the Armed Forces who have for years, have tried to crush insurgents but the insurgents are still there. It is now in your hands to deal with them.
The country’s debt is still huge! Let us pray that you can turn around a weak economy that is still feeling the recent global recession. You will now balance the fiscal deficits of our “rich” country.
You will now have control over government contracts, I hope that you have the intestinal fortitude to say “NO” to allies that will try to acquire juicy contracts.
You now possess the power to prioritize the delivery of basic services. It is now up to you if you want to produce smarter children by prioritizing education. If you want a healthier country, you can bolster our health care delivery system, God knows how it is in dire need of funding. There are other sectors in need of funding it is now up to you. The problem is balancing it is like balancing a double edged sword, it can cut you at either side.
Lastly, not all of your allies are your friends and not all of your critics are your enemies. You were brought up in a political family and we all know that there are some that will take your statements out of context.
Suggestions and Congratulations
Now that you will have the title: President of The Republic of the Philippines, please get a haircut. Get a damn haircut man! Your current ‘do makes you look like an old man, better yet go bald!
Get a wife! You have a hot girlfriend and it wont hurt your image if you get married. Do not think of love anymore, your old enough to be my father and it would be nice if someone would continue your family’s legacy. A first lady will help your presidency and I think Kris Aquino won’t cut it.
To you Benigno “Noy Noy” C. Aquino Jr, I give my sincerest congratulations! Good Luck! And to Gloria M. Macapagal-Arroyo: GOOD RIDDANCE!
