Maka-Arroyo talaga si Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales

Manuel Buencamino reacts to Rosales implicit support for the ARroyo admin. It's a good one.

Matagal na nating alam na maka-ARroyo si Cardinal Rosales.

He also kept parroting the admin line and even found time to push for Arroyo's charter change:

Rosales also pushed for amendments to the Constitution as another solution to the country’s social and political problems.

He explained the proposed shift to parliamentary form of government could help address needs for a quick change of the country’s political leaders without having to resort to another people power revolution.


But Rosales pointed out that in order for Charter change initiatives to be effective, a change in attitude of Filipinos and their leaders is necessary.

He said the country must do a thorough house cleaning by adopting a new political system.

Rosales added the people should focus on the positive implications of Charter change, noting a new Constitution for a parliamentary government would bring elections at a lesser cost aside from improving the country’s political image abroad.

Obviously for him, okay lang makialam sa pulitika, at maging advocate ng parliamentary system, dahil yan rin ang itinutulak ni Arroyo.

UPDATE:re cardinal rosales, conrad de quiros keeps complaining that the opposition is not doing enough to enrage the public vs. the Arroyo gov't.

he's partially right. but it's tough for the opposition, especially when "credible" "moral guardians" like guadencio rosales and half of conrad's do-gooding "civil society" undermine the anti-GMA message by minimizing the gravity of the extra-judicial killings or telling us that ARroyo is not the real problem but marcos, and it's time to Move on na.

Thanks for the mention, John.

Sayang I missed the cardinal's endorsement of cha-cha. Kung alam ko lang yun I would have included it in my article.

I'm really sick of bishops taking money from Gloria and then using their positions to endorse her. I have nothing but contempt for those types. Selling political endorsements is like simony, the selling of God's graces/blessings
