Because that is the same argument used by administration apologists and some of her CBCP fans to keep Arroyo in power (na she's doing a "good job" raw running the country.)
Sabi ni MLQ3:
At the very least, all sides should take Zubiri at his word, when he says he will work doubly hard to prove that his critics' misgivings about him are misguided.
I don't mind having a Zubiri. Kung nanalo siya. BUT THE FACT IS, COMELEC HELPED STEAL THE ELECTIONS FOR ZUBIRI. And no amount of justification... na porke "qualified" siya, o may "potential" siya can right THIS WRONG.
Unlike the other two administration candidates elected to the Senate, Zubiri after all isn't living out his sunset years. He isn't at the tail end of a career in politics, he is at the end of the beginning. I don't think anyone seriously expects the Senate Electoral Tribunal to resolve anything within one or two years, or even five; therefore we have what we have, and what we have is a Senator Zubiri: who has admitted that he will continue to be known as the Distinguished Gentleman from Bukidnon and Maguindanao for a long time to come. Only he, through legislation that makes a repeat of this year's messy elections impossible, can turn a term of scorn into a badge of pride.
I've said this before, and i'll say it again. Kung hindi nag concede sila Recto at Defensor, you'd be seeing one or two more admin senators, thanks to Maguindanao's "12-0 results".
UPDATE: Kung alam ko lang na magiging ganito ang resulta ng p*t*ng in*ang SC at COMELEC na yan, sana hindi ko na lang isinulat ang post na ito. Sana hindi na lang nagsalita si Musa Dimasidsing.
UPDATE: Tahimik lang ang CBCP sa "pagkapanalo" ni Zubiri (even though kaliwa't-kanan ang suggestions nila kung papaano raw gawing "mas credible" ang election). If you guys are incapable of making a stand on the Zubiri moro moro, then it's better if you guys just shut up na lang re "reform, reform" suggestions nyo sa elections natin.
Maybe they should read this article first from Conrad de Quiros.
