Are you happy that this person, your president now, has won the elections? Or do you wish that you had someone else?I ask this because I often see presidents being lampooned on some newspapers or blogs and realized that a lot of people are dissatisfied with their presidents! How did this happen? I am a person who does not care who is in authority as long as they don't bother with me personally. I often see the good that the president, our president, is trying to do to help out our country's economy as she's an economist herself. My answer here is that I am satisfied with President Gloria and hope that she will continue on improving our country. What is your view on this? Do you like your OWN country's president? I'm talking in general terms here.

NO. for she and her family and the poeple who are sipsip are getting good benifits for her being the president. the poor ones becme more poor, and the middle class people became poor. even the staple food of the Filipinos which is rice shoot up that most of the filipino people can no longer afford it. is she worried? no! all she is worried about is what she will get and what can she have.

I don't think she made the rice prices go up as the world market of rice is really going crazy these days. but I am not arguing with you. I am NOT pro-Gloria.

on my views i think she was the one who decides about the price of rice to cover up the ZTE scam. my wife is from bulacan and she has a lot of friends from nueva ecija claming that there are no rice shortage, the govermant said the the prices of rice shoot up because of shortage. well i think there is nothing we can do but to deal with it and mag-tiis.

President PGMA is a working president. I agree with you that she is really helping the country's economy. Others kept on blaming her for everything that's happening in the country. Instead of helping her, they oppose everything. It's good that she just ignores them.
