What Situation did the President Compare the Supreme Court Decision to?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

In President Benigno Simeon Aquino III’s speech last week addressing the Disbursement Acceleration Program, he compared the Supreme Court’s decision to make it unconstitutional to a motorist getting arrested just because he parked his motorcycle in a no parking zone because he had to save the life of a victim who either go ran over by a bus or stabbed by a snatcher. It is a sorry situation for the victim to say the least. However, this comparison is far from the truth. President Aquino is not exactly a Good Samaritan since the Filipino people know him too well.

You have to give credit to whoever outlined the speech of President Aquino because that is a good comparison to tell the people. The people will think that the president was treated unfairly by the Supreme Court since they made the DAP unconstitutional. It looks like Aquino is not going to give up on trying appealing the decision of the Supreme Court anytime soon so you have to admire the courage of the President for trying. He is trying to show that he has leadership in this country which makes him the boss but he has stated several times in his speeches that the Filipino people are his true boss.

The President should have compared the decision to yesterday’s event at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It was poor decision making on the part of Manny Pangilinan to let the event with the NBA players go on when they were not allowed to play a 5 on 5 games against the Smart Gilas team back in April. Despite that, the event pushed through and a bunch of NBA players backed out at the last minute. If the president’s speech happened sooner, then that situation would have been a better comparison to the Supreme Court’s ruling of the DAP.

  1. What he is doing is no different from Martial Law.. Marcos also fought with the Supreme Court and when he didn't get his way he declared Martial law.

  2. They must meet and talk to each other personally, and settle their differences behind closed door. This makes them carnival performers of the media people and the Filipino people. But in one side, this is a positive setback in making our country to the next generation. They opened up a "can of worms" and must be addressed properly.
