are you happy with the resignation of Ombudsman Gutierrez?
April 29, 2011 6:35pm CST
Gutierrez resigned yesterday after she was impeached by the house representatives for failing to investigate corruption allegations against former president Arroyo. A day before news of her resignation, she hinted that leaving her post was one of the better of her few options. She was impeached last month based on complaints that she betrayed public trust and failed to investigate Arroyo and her husband. She denies the allegation. This might relieve the burden of the country in facing its multi-faceted domestic problems. This might also be the best move for her adding that a impeachment trial would be very divisive. But would this spare again the people of knowing the truth. She might save herself from being ousted from office but would this entail that she is guilty. Still its not. So, with the move of Gutierrez, I am not so happy but on one hand thanks to her because it would spare the wastage of time and effort of our congressmen and senators. happy mylotting!!!!!!!!!!!

It's both good and bad at the same time. Good because at least we know that the cases that were sent to the Ombudsan will surely progress. Bad because the possibility of dragging Arroyo's name in the scene is getting slimmer and slimmer. I hope there's still light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm happy about it, my friend. But I want her to bring to the bar of justice. Because she is covering all the anomalies of the past administration. She should face all the consequences of which the then former President Gloria did... Government fund are distributed to all the government officials in his cabinet and now we have no sufficient fund to run this country... There are many alibi's of the current government that they don't have enough fund to funding all the government projects and services that must be delivered to our fellow citizens...

OMG's resignation makes one think and feel: good riddance! It had been too long and the country's purgation is being slowed down or delayed by her strong stance at the office of the ombudsman. We cannot feel happy either way. She resigns or not, there is the colossal cleaning up we have to undergo. But perhaps this is the better option. Truth will find a way of surfacing...
