“Ang Kawatang Nagigipit, Sa Wheelchair Kumakapit”
A few months ago, Malacañang refuted a statement of Chief Justice Renato Corona that the root cause of his impeachment was the Supreme Court’s adverse decision on the Hacienda Luisita owned by the President’s family.
Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda vehemently denied and stated that the root cause of Corona’s impeachment was Corona’s “lapdog loyalty” to former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as shown by the High Court’s issuance of the TRO against the watchlist order on the former President.
Now that the Impeachment trial is over, many would have to agree that Corona indeed takes after his “master” for following her “wheelchair” strategy to fish for sympathy.
When all “technicalities” failed, go for the “underdog” approach.
