MANILA, Philippines—On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest, Vice President Jejomar Binay on Monday gave President Benigno Aquino an 8.5 to 9 rating for his State of the Nation Address (Sona).

In a separate statement, Binay said “napakaganda ng mga sinabi ni Pangulong Noynoy Aquino. Tama s’ya. Walang imposible. Nakikita na natin na nagkakabunga na ang mga reporma na sinimulan ng ating Pangulo.”
