Nobody's Perfect

In governing the Philippines, nobody is perfect. The new president, Noynoy Aquino maybe good in the non corrupt administration. He's really determined to eliminate corrupt government officials and employees but when it comes to diplomatic relations, I doubt he is as good as the former president. GMA went out of his way just to see the king of Saudi Arabia in order to save a life of a man who's sentenced to be beheaded. She traveled a lot to seek help and maintain diplomatic ties with other countries. She has brilliant ideas but maybe surrounded with people who were corrupt that she was not able to control. On the other hand Noynoy's quest for a clean honest government is sincere, though he must be good in his decisions as well. In situations where his decisions and presence maybe needed he must not trust or delegate it to his subordinates as when it failed his administration will suffer. Nobody is really perfect, what qualities others may have, others don't.

You right my friend. In every aspect in our life we commit mistakes. The Government of PNOY, is good enough other than the Arroyo government, which corrupt officials is rampant and there is double standard of justice then... Every President, has it's own weaknesses and we can't judge pnoy, as he is still starting and learning the process. The event happen in the past like the hostage taking is isolated and maybe an incidents that no one will like it... It is bad enough...because the people involve are foriegners and most especially victims are from hong kong, where most people there did not understand it and see Filipinos, is less human than they are... They should not acted like that. Because there are many cases of abusive conduct in that part but we are not complaining. We don't say anything because we know it is not always happen... But Donald Tsang, the governor in hong kong, really acted disrespectful as leader of that regional parts of China... We committed mistakes in that event but they should understand us instead. This is a matter mistakes...no will like it. You right nobody is perfect have a great day!

Yes we'll just hope he'll learn from this and right nobody want this to happen but all we can do is understand their feelings and reactions as well. They lost 8 lives in our country and there are little shortcomings in our part, it's but natural for them to feel bad. Maybe it's just right to apologize and symphatize with them for their loss. Thanks aerous for the response.

I have to agree with you on this. "You can't have your cake and eat it too". I just hope that this administration is much better than the previous one. Anyway, we can't please everybody and whatever decisions PNoy will make, I have to support that since he is the new President. Whatever decisions he will make, he have to live with it's consequences so I just hope his instincts are always right. What I will do instead in order to help him, is be responsible in whatever actions I have to do for the country. He cannot do it alone and needs the support of everybody.

Point taken :) I RESPECT your opinion because that are your views. But that is my opinion also so I guess I am entitled to one. :) Why do I think we failed to oust the previous administration? I guess people are just too tired to make another People's Power part 3, 4 or whatever. No effort, no movement.

Thanks theplanner and eds, expressing our views makes a good discussion. We respects each others opinion, of course. Though quite early we can't avoid to compare the previous and the present administration, although it's right that we have to support him being the new president as he could not really do it alone. Thanks for the response the planner and eds. God bless...

I know that nobody is perfect but one still needs to try to become one. "There is power in a human's will", that is what I believe. Anyways, in the previous administration, I think our former Pres. is a good person whose people is corrupt to the core. I think one of the reasons why she is viewed as someone bad today is due to that certain fact. In today's administration, so far as I see, I think the current Pres. is good too. However, in my opinion, he does not have what it takes to lift Philippines from its downfall. What I mean is, does a person have to die in order for Filipinos to rise and take the initiative to right what is wrong? He cannot help Philippines alone, he needs all of the people in the Phil. to help him. He does not need an "I" person(a person who is only concerned of his needs). What I am seeing today is almost like the situation of the Philippines years before particularly that of the Spanish regime. Only this time, the opponents is not Spain but Corrupt Filipinos. How very well did the Spaniards taught the Filipinos that mentality of corruption.

Well said sinfulrose, one must try to be perfect especially if you're a leader. I agree with you "there is power in a human's will", or the "will power" to do the best or have the best and right decisions. Thanks for the response sinfulrose, God bless.

correct jinghan, being a president is an extraordinary person as you're being looked up to by everybody. You'll be the one responsible to the people's fate and the nation's progress. You're decisions will make or break the country's future. Thanks for the response jinghan. GOD BLESS...

As I agree with you I don't really expect much from Noynoy but still I have chosen him because of trust and integrity that is willing to solve the problems in terms of government. I believe that challenges are part of his learning experience. I am glad on how he makes decisions now especially after the hostage crisis. I also believe that even the other candidates won then there would be still discrepancies that may affect the public or nation.

Right gabs, we have different qualities, if we have the same qualities, we can no longer be compared (lol). I'll be signing in at Gissi's. Thanks gabs for the response. Take care...

I somehow agree with you, I am not very confident in this administration and the past, but for me, I guess its still a little too early to judge. Despite of everything negative that happened early in his administration, especially the hostage crisis recently,I think he deserves a chance to prove himself besides we are the ones who voted for him to be our president.

Right Minerva, he was elected president, so we have to support him, but of course from time to time we have to express our views also with the way he is running the government. Thanks Minerva, enjoy your day.

The one responsible are those departments and agencies of governments who are responsible to their tasks.

i agree with you. it would really be hard for one person to have all the qualities of one good president to lead such a country - with so diversified cultures, with around 7100 islands. But what i want with noynoy is the drive to clean the government. When one person who leads other people is not corrupted - i feel that the people will follow the lead and be a good leader themselves. everything should follow from there.

Right Chiyosan, his sincerity for a non corrupt government is one great quality of the new president. If it's clean on top it follows downwards. Thanks for the response. God bless.

i totally agree with you on that. i think among all the presidents we had he has the most sincere intention of removing corruption and anomalies in the government. but though he is, i really doubt his stability in decision makings. as i have thought so even before the elections, those people who surrounds him will be his failure. i hope he learn from this incident and aim to do better decision next time though i pray there won't be next time. but as you say nobody is perfect none has ever been i think. anyway happy mylotting kababayan!

Thanks angel kaycee, I think he should show up in incidents where he can do better than his subordinates, anyway he's the commander in chief. Whatever punishments do to men involved can't bring back the lives lost. We'll just hope for a better president and a better governance. Have a good day.

I've always known that it's entirely her fault if her past administration had been widely criticized. but in some ways, i believed she still did a lot for our country, not as perfect as any one would do. i believe her mistake was compromise and not getting rid of those who are corrupt that made people hate her. as for Noynoy, we can judge after two years prior, i can't judge him yet, there are more challenges to come.

Yes friend I believe GMA did a lot of good to our country but successive negative issues erased all. Pnoy has a long way to go to prove himself but he must take into consideration wrong decisions or moves in his early governance. May he learn from the consequences that could affect his administration and the entire country. Thanks for the response, Letran, have a good day.
