Grow Up!

Is this all that Filipinos have to worry about? President of 12th most populated country in the world is spending his time explaining the cars he is riding!? Over that he thinks government money spent on buying a secure car could be unnecessary! He is the president for heaven’s sake, it is not his life as an individual that is important, it is the life of the “President of the Philippines” which is important and it will always be wise overspending on the side of caution in this matter. It should not be an issue if a lot of money is spent buying the right vehicle, plane, house or whatever … this is petty and calls for growing up!  

And then the dude wants to stop on the traffic lights to prove a point. It is definitely a big hassle for the people on the roads but the authorities should work on other aspects like aggressively channeling the traffic, limiting the movement of VIPs within the city, using helicopters wherever possible etc then to make the damn head of state stop on a traffic light. I bet they are spending more in covering the security while he is waiting on a stop light as compared of if he’d have just zipped past. And then they’ll make him a hero once he gets killed on a traffic light.

Sounds amateurish that the president of the 325 billion dollar economy needs to ride a leased/borrowed/whatever car from a relative and then explain it too.

Looks like this president tries to address every single minutest aspect of attention he gets from the public. In other words, is this a vain president, insecure and overtly conscious of his image?
