    Another rally which means another excuse to boast about false accomplishments and attack GMA. Boring! Same ole stuff!

    It would be more interesting if PNoy talked about the Sabah mistake and the not feeding the poor in Davao or poor educational programs to support college students.

    With all the troubles in the PH, this is the only thing where Pnoy is hyperactive on. He must see proclamation rallies as opportunities for him to brag about made up accomplishments or to joke around, or to criticize his political foes, which are the things that he is apparently good at.
